Great location, large clean rooms, comfortable beds, large shower, great breakfast Definitely recommend this place

Great location near the train station and Royal Mile. Very convenient to walk to major tourists sites. Very nice gym. Daily breakfast probably not worth it if you are paying extra. Friendly staff. Room was okay but floor creaked with every step.

Perfect location for getting around the city. Close to old town and new town. So many dining options and cafe options to choose from within 1 minute walk. About the middle of the Royal Mile.

The location was terrific. Amer, the General manager, was very accommodating in locating a new room for us and the rest of the staff was incredibly professional and competent All of our needs and requests were satisfied.

The location is amazing. It’s right on the North Bridge and Royal Mile. What was terrible is that the windows in the area where my room was 324 were not at all sound proofed. It was truly as if i were on the street. Every car, bus, truck that passed, every person speaking could be heard. There was a bag piper that played on the street until 1 pm and if he were good i would not have minded but he was terrible and I literally got zero sleep. I could not change rooms because the hotel was fully booked. The servers in the restaurant were pretty terrible but the food was decent. I would not stay here again as the room was the most awful I think I’ve ever stayed in.

Location - excellent. Shopping,restaurants, train station and historical sites within walking

Great location and a beautiful property, also had very nice dinners in the restaurant.

Beautiful hotel in a great location. The rooms were clean and staff was very friendly.

The view feom our room was very nice. It was very close to the train station. The best was the kind service from everyone at the front desk. They got us into our room extra early, directed us to the best way to see the parts of the city for the best value. My husband also appreciated the on site bar. We all enjoyed the breakfasts each day and I was happy to try haggis and black pudding without having to commit to a whole meal of it!

great location, great hotel for the price. We had to wait over 30 minutes at checkin to get a room (and it was after 4:00 pm).

Dear Rlew, Thanks very much for sharing your feedback with us and raising the issues. Let me apologise for the bad experience in the hotel regarding the noise of the room. Unfortunately, as you were told, we were full and a room move was not possible, otherwise, we could have solved the problem. Rest assured that this will be shared within the appropriate department so we can sort it out. We hope you enjoyed the city nevertheless. Kindest regards,
