    Comfortable quiet and newly decorated units and highly courteous staff in restaurant and reception Manager.

    Well presented hotel located very close to the very centre of Edinburgh as well as easily accessible bus stops. Convenient location, brand-new room with incredible view of the hills. Very impressed with armchairs and coffee available. Very good customer care, parking on street.

    Poor breakfast.

  • Great

    The room reasonably priced and recently refurbished, bed comfortable. Savoury breakfast selection, caring staff.

    Richard United Kingdom, 
  • Great

    The location of this hotel was fantastic, just off the Royal Mile. It was convenient for exploring the city and close to parks and outdoor areas. The room was great, with all the necessary amenities and a comfortable bed. The breakfast was excellent, with good quality ingredients and a nice touch with the birthday card and chocolates in the room.

    The restaurant had a limited dinner menu and the service was disorganized and slow. Some staff seemed careless and provided sluggish service.
