The rooms were nice and breakfast was delicious. Ordered room service twice and both times had to call multiple times and also try reception as no one picked up on the room service line. Changing rooms for the pool are far too small. Otherwise nice trip

The room was clean and functional, with a good central location. However, the hotel lacked in service (delays in responding to issues, staff disorganised and lacking in training, took hours to find an alternative pillow) and the breakfast buffet was of poor quality.

Spa facilities closed

The hotel anf staff were really nice but we left disappointed. The spa facilities were closed for refurbishment, there was no mention on booking and this was main reason for chosing this hotel so we could relax and enjoy the facilities. Would have chosen different hotel if we were informed really frustrated and disappointed

Really nice hotel with Spa across from Castle

Pros: Quality, service, location and parking
Cons: Evening meal was a big disappointment.
Ideally situated modern Hotel with swimming pool/gym/spa across from Edinburgh castle with great parking, Ideally located for shops, restaurants and Castle. Everything perfect apart from evening meal 2 x penne carbonara warm and watery/milk for £12 each, Dessert sorbets turned out to be ice cream at £6.00 each on the first night, wasnt expecting much different for breakfast due to the evening meal but WOW great breakfast all freshly cooked and huge selection from all cooked cereals fruits yogurts juices cheeses and breads etc. The breakfast truly made up for the previous evening. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely choose to stay here again however evening meals I would chose to dine outwith in many other restaurants locally instead.

Fantastic location and excellent staff. The first room we were given was not great, carpet very dirty and smelt badly of cigarette smoke. Staff changed our room without hesitation. Our second room was ok but feel it didn't meet our expectations. Breakfast was very good.
