    Nice, clean rooms...though they vary widely in size. Good breakfast, pleasant service. Quiet street. Good value for money.

    Though it is within walking distance of Princess Street, the walk is hilly - that should be taken into account while choosing this place to stay.

    I enjoyed my stay. I thought it was good value for money. The doorman made me a cup of tea one night when I came in late which I thought was very kind.

    Excellent location. Convenient for city centre on quiet & attractive terrace. Family room was very clean and with ample space.

    Would have liked a small lounge area for a drink in the evening. Bar only had a small selection of cans and bottled beers with only the restaurant tables and chairs to sit at. If we hadn't arrived at the weekend, car parking prices would been very expensive.

    Clean rooms, most of staff friiendly, breakfast good

    Breakfast finished a bit early in the morning.

    Great location close to the city centre in a pretty street. Room was a good size (I had booked a single but it was a twin room). My room was at the back of the building and looked out over the garden to a park beyond. Breakfast (included) was good and the dining room had a good outlook if you had a seat near the windows.

    The room was a little cold, even with the heater on, but there was an extra blanket (and pillows) in the robe.

    small cosy room with very nice view to the garden.

    too noisy floor in room above mine.

    The hotel's stuff was very good, especially Kristin which was very pleasnt and helped us to solve issues when occured.

    Friendly staff and very helpful. Location is good as it is not overlooked - it is in a lovely row of large terrace houses with a small treed area to the front and lovely long gardens to the back.

    Perhaps I overlooked it when I was looking at the hotel on the internet but mention should be made of the fact that there is no lift on the premises. Personally I was glad I was only on the first floor and had a small though quite heavy case. That aside, I will use the hotel again when next in Edinburgh.

    Close to Playhouse Theatre for Shows

    Hotel was a bit run down. Room had some wallpaper coming off wall although the on Suite looked new and up to date. Breafast was a bit megre with one sausage, a small drop of scrambled egg and one small slice of Bacon. Would not recommend this Hotel

    Nothing in special.

    Unfriendly Lady at reception, horrible smell of food at reception/breakfast- room, dirty and demolished bath, value for money

  • Group of friends

    The location was quiet and beautiful, yet close to the bus and walking distance from theatre and dining. Allan, the desk clerk, was very helpful and handled our requests cheerfully. The other clerks were also nice. Allan stood out as the best clerk we meet in 20 days of travel around the uk.

    It was a nice hotel, well located. Our biggest problem was the lack of an elevator. The beautiful old building has very high ceilings and it was a long way up to the third floor for the last night of our stay. Fortunately the staff carried our bags. The other thing they need to change is breakfast was from 7:30 to 9. Closing off meal service at 9 for people on holiday is too early.

    The room was very comfortable and just what we needed after a long day of exploring and hiking.
