Nice hotel

Cons: Indications to location of pool and sauna.
All you can expect for a 5* establishment, only couple of issues: - bath tap was not working, we didn't have time to report it until we checked out - our breakfast table got hijacked! Overall, very pleased with the week-end spent in the hotel.

Castle view room at Sheraton

Location: The hotel is very central so everything you want to visit is within walking distance.
We loved our stay at Sheraton. We had a Castle Suite so the view was beautiful. We enjoyed the spa facilities (but do have in mind that if you want a treatment you have to book ahead of arrival, they were fully booked). The hotel has a swimming pool and sauna, but the Spa has more facilities and the treatments. To use the Spa facilities we had to pay an extra 30 pounds per person, but that was fine. What didn't make sense for us was to pay an extra 5 pounds to upgrade our breakfast to include hot food. I've never been to a hotel that does that. Our room was already very expensive, asking for another 5 pounds sounds weird. And we had to upgrade, because the cold food didn't really have any vegan options, so we wanted the baked beans and mushrooms. The food was very good anyway. And the staff was very helpful for our dinners where the chef had to cook something specially for us, as again there were no vegan foods in the menu.

Nice Hotel

It was good but they could not or would not provide a free upgrade for my partners 30 birthday which I feel let them down.

City break

The Spa and staff at the spa were amazing - it does not get any better! Very welcoming and the facilities are top notch as was the treatment - One of a kind! The hotel was fine but for the price we expected more and our experience was let down by a couple of reception staff who came across a bit pretentious and uncaring when we expressed some concerns - not all the staff were like that though - but I think on return to Edinburgh we will stay somewhere else in the future and visit the spa separately.
