The hotel is larger than it looks with generous high-ceiling rooms, a large staircase and lift.

This hotel is well situated for the centre of Edinburgh, within walking distance to the shops, Royal Mile and the Castle. The room was very big, warm and a comfortable bed, tea/coffee, tv, hairdryer. As we were on the front it was a bit noisy...More
Rooms are lovely with high ceilings, comfortable beds etc
However there are uneven floors, peeling wallpaper etc - needs a little TLC
However, for the price in the middle of Edinburgh on a weekend you can not really go wrong.

This is an old house which has been converted to a hotel to a high standard, my room was very modern clean and tidy, and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. No dining facilities in the hotel and breakfast is opposite...More
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

I can't answer this. "Ensure" is a verb meaning to guarantee, e.g. "the management ensures that the phones work". You've used it here as an adjective, and I don't know what you mean. Do you mean secure? Insured... More
I can't answer this. "Ensure" is a verb meaning to guarantee, e.g. "the management ensures that the phones work". You've used it here as an adjective, and I don't know what you mean. Do you mean secure? Insured? Presumably the whole hotel is insured by the owner, but I don't think that will benefit a guest in any way. The rooms are reasonably secure in that they have keys (like all hotel rooms).
My basic feeling about this hotel is that it is quite overpriced for what it is (which is sort of a two-star hotel somehow awarded four stars), especially since there is no restaurant, no bar, no real lobby, and no charm. It is central, clean, inoffensive and has comfortable beds. The question is what you want to pay for that.
