It was the most comfortable hotel out of the seven I have stayed at. Clean, great staff, good breakfast, and great location. Will stay there again when I next visit.

Excellent location, Excellent Breakfast. Staff was helpful and accommodating.

Nice that breakfast was included. Luggage storage. Limited counter space in bathroom

Great convent location, incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Nice breakfast buffet with hot and cold items. The only negative comment I could make is that their family room (a double with open sofa bed) is tight for a family of four. With the sofa bed open there is no space to move around the room and no closets or dressers to unpack or store luggage. Strange swinging door on bathroom seemed like a cool way to give privacy to someone on the commode but still allow another person to use the sink or shower...but then that person has no way to close the bathroom door for privacy. Overall a good quality hotel at a good price right off the Royal Mile.

The front desk staffs are extremely friendly. They helped us store the luggages because we arrived in the early morning. And they draw a route for our day trip. When they know we have to leave at 6:00 am, they let breakfast area open at 5:30 so we can get some muffins and bananas.

Short walk to the Royal Mile. Nice hotel and beds were comfortable. Able to fit family of four. Check in receptionist was friendly.

The only problem with this hotel is the Lift, it is a small Lift, only 4 Adult people (per weight limit) allowed at a time, and on check out day stood and waited for the lift for 30min on the 4th floor with luggage until we had to take the steps down as not to be late for our train.

Hotel was very clean and the breakfast buffet have a nice choice of food. Nice location close to everything; I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone; couples and those with children.

Room was adequate,quiet,and comforatable. Good location.

Scottish gentleman at desk was so nice. Always smiling and ready to help with any questions. Best Holiday in Express we have ever stayed at. From Chicago.

Had to call many times re more toilet paper and towels-- shower is way too small

Everything was excellent at the hotel, though the bed could have been a little more comfortable - still it was by no means uncomfortable.

The receptionists were great. Rooms were clean. One block to the Royal Mile.
