Stayed here 4 or 5 times. Staff are all lovely. Impressed with covid precautions in place. One thing to change, please put tv on the wall so it can be seen without getting a stiff neck tbrough looking sideways at it.

The hotel is perfectly placed in Edinburgh for a great city break. We had gorgeous castle views. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is very run down and probably due as upgrade about 10-15 years ago. The sheets weren’t long enough for the bed which was odd so the mattress poked out, and the beds weren’t that comfy either. That said, the hotel was quite cheap and the photos showed the bedraggled interior so it wasn’t a surprise
