Stayed here a few times and love it. The location is ideal bustling area just down from the castle. The hotel has 9 rooms and all are lovely, the staff are friendly and helpful. The bar has live music every night and it was nice to come back in the evening to finish with a glass of red, listen to some music and then off to bed.

This is a great small, boutique hotel slap bang in the middle of Edinburgh. My room was lovely with a great finish and the little touches of tasty tunnocks wafers, bottled water and an espresso machine made this stay really comfortable. The breakfast choice was vast and the poached eggs on sourdough with bacon set me up for the day. All in all a real find.

Very centrally located for walking around. Rooms were not big but really nice, clean and charming. Bar downstairs with with food and drink. Breakfast can be added extra but there's also a great breakfast place called Larder just around the corner. The inn also has a Free drink at bar with booking. Great time!

I stayed at the hotel last week and it was perfect! The rooms are nicely done with everything you need (even GHD hair straighteners to save you bringing your own). You can even get milk and cookies delivered to your room before bed which is such a nice touch! The breakfast was absolutely delicious - the veggie breakfast was especially great!! The staff were super friendly and very happy to help. Would definitely stay again when visiting Edinburgh and recommend to everyone!!

Friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a comfy modern place to stay. The complimentary drink was nice, as was the breakfast. My only (hopefully constructive) criticism is that the hotel promotes reducing waste and CO2 emissions (which is great), but then provides what seem to be one use slippers wrapped in plastic - I'd be happy not to have these in my room, and it would help with their overall eco stance.

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time at our little inn and thank you for your kind comment about the staff.
