Stayed here for 4 nights , great location to walk Edinburgh , convenient store close by, did not eat here, many places close to eat. Clean room, hard working staff, the Bar was awesome ..had a few Long Island ice teas :) all the staff at the bar were very friendly and cool. I don't want to ruin there names by trying to spell them ..they would remember me easily for my Long Island ice teas !!! Would stay here again and recommend this for anyone. Cheers

Room tip: we stayed on 3rd floor ..was fine

Dear Daniel,

Thank you for your feedback and delighted to hear you had a good stay with us.
Your feedback on the bar is very pleasing and I will pass your comments onto the team. We are just about to launch our new Bar and restaurant Bistro Deluxe by Paul Tamburrini which will enhance our offering even further and hopefully next time you visit you will try our restaurant also after a couple of long island iced tea's
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future and hopefully we can get that 5th circle in your review.
Kind regards
Andrew Boe

A wonderful hotel near the Royal Mile. Our room was spacious and very clean, with a sitting area and all decorated in tartan. The bed was the most comfortable one we slept in our whole trip. The breakfast buffet was fine plus many options to order a-la-carte (included). We would definitely stay here again.

Our rooms are a good size for a city centre property and our beds are amazingly comfortable which is needed to get a good sleep after enjoying a day visiting all the sights in Edinburgh.
We very much look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Beautiful, spacious room, and comfortable bed. The location is perfect, 5 minute walk to the Palace and the start of the Royal Mile. Concierge was most helpful to us as we planned our limited time in Edinburgh. Highly recommend.

Thank you again for the 5 star review

Really enjoyed this hotel and my room. The property is lovely and well run. Food was good in the restaurant. Room was exceptional. Bed was extremely comfortable. My only complaint would be it was quite hot at night for sleeping and I was unable to regulate any sort of air conditioning in the room. Had the window open though which helped, and this would not hinder me from staying here again. Good location close to things in the city and bus/train etc.

Dear Anna from Canada,

Thank you so much for your 5 star review in regards to your recent visit with us.
I am delighted you found the room comfortable and the beds are amazing.
In relation to the Air conditioning, we do have an air handling unit which can supply cool air but not to the level of a specific air conditioning unit, but this is something we are looking into hopefully to improve.
We very much hope you will cross our doors again in the future and we look forward to welcoming you back
Kind regards

We just stayed here the one night. Loved this hotel and that it had the Scottish feel about it. Tartan bed throw,lavender soap/shower gel and shortbread,very cosy too.
Nice little bar,where we had a watermelon based martini (very good). Breakfast ample with plenty of choice, although no black pudding surprisingly (maybe missing that day).
Great location,would definitely return and recommend to friends.

Dear Donna,

Thank you so much for your feedback and I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The watermelon based martini is lovely!!
I am glad you found breakfast ample even with the lack of black pudding which should be available and I will be investigating to why it was missing.
We very much look forward to welcoming you back in the future and hopefully for longer than just the one night.
Kind regards
