The staff is so great that they make your stay the best!! The hotel is 10 minutes from the city center, have a great breakfast and the attention is their priority, which is the most important to me. This is a very good option for staying in the beautiful Edinburgh!!

Very nice hotel in good location. The room was nice and cosy for a three star hotel. The water heater in the shower was a bit weak. Very good breakfast and helpful staff. The owner of the hotel was very helpful and took the time to advise and direct us on different excursions. Can really recommend the hotel!

The hotel is more of a B&B feel. Walk up spiral staircase. Rooms are small but very comfortable and clean. Bathroom was impeccable, towel warmer and great shower. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the best we had in Scotland. Location is not within walking distance to High Street, but the buses are very close and easy to...

Pros: This hotel has the friendliest staff ever! They helped us with finding places to eat, ordering food, parking, navigating Edinburgh, etc. Breakfast is cooked-to-order and delicious! The rooms are adorable. Con: The rooms got warm at night and we had to open the window. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

What can I say, super-friendly, kind, helpful staff, nice rooms, incredible breakfast - as much​ choice as you could want; they even left mini Easter eggs on our pillows for Easter day. There are books and DVDs you can borrow, and there's a sweet little bar area you can sit in and have a drink if you want to. Lovely!
