We stayed one night while traveling to Edinburgh, Scotland.

Everything you would expect from a 5 Star hotel, with the added extra of some of the most helpful and friendly staff you could hope for in a hotel of this quality. Most enjoyable weekend and would highly recommend using the restaurant...also high quality food served by friendly and professional staff.

Everything you'd expect from a 5* hotel. The suite had a lounge area, and two ensuites and was extremely good. Only disappointment was my wife couldn't get a massage because it was fully booked. So, advise to book in advance if this important.
