I've been to Edinburgh many times, but this was my first visit to this gem. Very friendly and welcoming. High standards in the bedroom, sitting room and breakfast room. Great service, even having a list of buses that pass the hotel going into Edinburgh central. Leave the car at the hotel and use the public transportation.

Really lovely hotel, about 40 minute walk from the royal mile. Plenty of buses also go up and down the road at regular intervals. The sitting room has the fire lit at night which is lovely and they have an honesty bar there with a good selection of drinks both alcohol and soft. The staff are all very friendly and...

We decided to visit Edinburgh for a long weekend break to celebrate my wife's birthday in late January. We were accommodated in a building at the rear of the hotel, and had a very decent room with an enormous and equally comfortable bed. The complementary pale cream sherry was replenished every day which we thought was a nice touch, as...

The living room with fireplace is a small gem in the evenings...and in...
