From the welcoming front desk staff, clean rooms, food service and location everything was top notch. Head Concierge (Gavin) and his assistant-went above and beyond to help with restaurant recommendations, sight seeing (esp. given COVID restrictions). even got one restaurant to provide a comp. champagne welcome. Both in house restaurants were very good. But Aizle (6/7 course tasting menu) was something truly special.

Excellent position. 2 good restaurants. Lots of different bar and sitting spaces. Wish I used what looked like a very good gym and spa.

The location was great. The restaurant has a small but very good menu and bar. The room was very calming and comfortable, well appointed.

Good location, friendly staff. Walking to many restaurants and central business district. Edinburgh Castle is 15 min walk

This was the most beautiful hotel we have stayed in in a while. The location is great (near Tram, Princess St and Castle). The staff was so pleasant and helpful.... even as we had a late check in and were all a little out of sorts. The first floor dining area is a great place to meet friends and the work out area is one of the nicest we have seen in Europe. Overall you cannot go wrong staying here.
