      Individual guest reviews

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Excellent staff and location. The Hotel has contemporary tasteful design. Reasonable bar prices. Didn't eat there so unable to comment on catering.

        Breakfast not included in price. Very small double bed in our particular room. I would definitely stay again but would check size of bed.

      • Couple
        10.0

        My boyfriend and myself felt the hotel was absolutely stunning and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Our room was beautiful and very spacious.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Excellent location, minutes away from the main street `Princes Street` and the train station set back a few streets for a slightly slower pace and less crowds An old well kept building with a relaxed atmosphere. We had a massive room on the top floor overlooking the city - fantastic! Friendly, attentive staff offering a great fresh breakfast with standard items as well as off menu selection. Would recommend - less than 5 minutes walk from station behind Rose street and George street.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Well appointed, boutique hotel at an affordable price.

        Climbing three flights of stairs in the absence of a lift

      • Single
        7.8

        Great hotel but 3 dislikes 1) no lift and I was put on top floor 2) no heating in room 3) no blind or curtain in bathroom but nice view of Edinburgh.

        See above

      • Couple
        10.0

        The staff were always on hand to help and were always there at reception to answer any questions we had! As well as complying with our needs! There was a great deal of care for customers! The food was to a high standard and service was great! The rooms were clean with a great design including a large tv, lovely bathroom and big bed. We also had a great view of the city! The best part was the location as it was close to all centre pubs and shops, perfect for our shopping trip

        We did not find anything we were unhappy about

      • Group of friends

        The rooms ,the staff and the location was the best

      • Couple
        10.0

        The staff were very helpful, the hotel was well presented, very clean and with excellent in room facilities, plus free wifi

      • Couple
        9.6

        Very nice hotel with excellent staff.

        Only criticism was the water supply to room 3825? The very last room up the stairs. The shower was poor and the taps has a very weak flow

      • Couple
        7.8

        Nice room with a great view of the city in a fantastically central location. We were a short walk from the town centre, train/bus station and the castle. The room was clean and had a massive plasma screen which was useful. Staff were nice and friendly.

        The room wasn't huge. It's not that it was tiny...it could have been a little bit bigger.

      • Couple
        10.0

        The customer service was excellent. On arrival we were upgraded to a room with a great view of the city and the staff were really helpful in pointing out some good places to go for food and drink with the free map they gave us. The room was very clean and modern. The bar area was quiet and nicely laid out and again the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was located centrally and so it was easy to walk to many of the main attractions and all in all we really enjoyed our stay.

      • Couple
        10.0

        everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our room was very large clean and comfortable with seating area etc and the bar does particularly nice cocktails. If you are eating out I'd recommend l'escargot bleu a French restaurant just around the corner the food and service were stunning. (best to book).

      • Couple
        6.6

        Very well located, 10 minutes far from te train station.

        We had been allocated in a very small room without wardrobe , just a few hangers, without space for our luggage. If we have to stay for more then 1 night it will be a nightmare. I think that this room should be allowed to one person.

      • Couple
        8.8

        Friendly staff, good food, great room, stylish, all very happy.

        The walk to the top floor! (This is understandable with it being an old building), however 'no lift' should be pointed out for elderly, infirm or families with children as it was quite a hike. Another point is the roadworks outside that started at 7.30am on the Saturday and Sunday - guests should also have this pointed out to them prior to booking. This was the worst part of our stay. Otherwise we were very happy.

      • Couple
        9.2

        Nice, comfortable room, clean and very helpfull staff.

        No lift so lots of steps to top floor. Bland bathroom.
