We stayed here for three nights in February and we were pleased with our stay overall but we felt three stars was probably a fair reflection of this hotel. We paid €200 for three nights and considering this is close to the centre of Edinburgh we felt this was really good value. We travel to Edinburgh several times a year...

I stayed here for 2 nights, both with a friend and as a solo woman and had a great experience. A beautifully decorated hotel in a safe picturesque area by the meadows. Though i didn't come as 'a tourist' its a good location within easy access to all of the "places to visit" in Edinburgh approx 25mins in all directions....

Good location and great breakfast. Had the full Scottish, family and my partner had other things off the menu and enjoyed them all. Added bonus it had a pool table in the games room just off the bar. Nice decor and nice relaxing place to be. Looking forward to going again.

We went as a family of four, a week before Christmas 2016. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the family room (2 large double beds) a nice sitting area, lovely bathroom and all very well kept. Room service was quick and excellent. Very good food options for kids as well. The dinning areas are large so there is...

We picked the hotel because of its proximity to the home of friends we were visiting in Edinburgh. It's within walking distance of the center, although you might prefer taking the frequent buses if it's cold, rainy or windy (and mostly all three together). If you arrive on a cold & rainy evening, the facade can appear a little forbidding,...

Between us we had the pate, salmon and soup for starters; turkey and beef for mains; and the christmas pudding, apple sponge, chocolate parfait and cheese for desserts.

Visited here recently for some food with friends and was less than impressed, firstly after being seated we were not served for fifteen minutes and it was very apparent the server was new. We ordered finger food which took forever to arrive and when it did it was look warm. The food was put on the table and at this...

Stayed at this beautiful well positioned hotel with my husband and friends after a day at the footie. Staff are friendly and helpful. There is a lovely ambient feel to the place with tasteful decor and really clean throughout. We ate in the bar, food was great and reasonably priced. Drinks were also reasonable and the cocktails were fab. The...
