Great central Edinburgh location. We had a family room with 2 double beds and sofa bed which was spacious and nicely decorated, although the beds were a little small being used to king size. Attractive lobby and restaurant area. We did had to request teabags etc were replenished as this was missed a couple of times, but overall a great stay

Thank you for sharing your experience! We are glad you had a nice stay with us. We are sorry to hear the coffee station was not replenished everyday and we have passed this information to the manager of the department of housekeeping. We hope to see you soon again.

Very nice and well positioned

Pros: well situated
Overall enjoyed the stay but did have difficulty accessing the hotel on the Friday night. We rang the bell around 3am but no one was at reception and eventually 3 people came at the same time - one girl and guy sauntered down the stairs and the other person had obviously heard the bell and was good enough to open the door. Annoying as we were asked by the girl 'did you ring the bell!!!'. A concern if you were a lady on her own standing on the pavement at that hour of night unable to access the building. There was also a gentleman trying to access the hotel at the same time and he was ringing the reception to try to get someone. Also there was no urgency when we were looking for a glass of ice at the bar by one of the staff. She was serving the only other person at the bar (a man) and completely ignored my two friends (girls) for about 10 minutes. No eye contact and no 'i'll be with you in a minute'. On a positive note, Dave, was very good and organised a booking for the Saturday night for an Italian restaurant which was very much appreciated as the city was extremely busy due to the rugby. We would visit again but thought it important to mention the negative points also.

Lovely place to stay in city center

Nice to find a hotel like this right near everything we wanted to see and do. The four of us were more than happy with the kind staff who really showed they cared about us being comfortable and more than satisfied. Great rooms, clean with a modern feel even though you're in the old town. The restaurant had run out of all sorts but they bent over backwards to keep us well pleased with what we finally ordered. Simply great.
