When I booked this hotel some time ago, the reviews were generally positive. I had another look just before we were due to stay and it appears that standards may have slipped a bit recently. So I was a bit concerned about what we might encounter.
Fortunately, we didn't experience any of the significant issues that other guests have encountered recently.
The guy who checked us in wasn't particularly friendly but was professional enough.
Our room was OK, although it could be doing with a bit of a spruce up. The bathroom wasn't particularly clean, though. A clean bathroom is the minimum you expect from a hotel, so that was really disappointing.
I'd probably have given the hotel a lower rating, if it weren't for the fact that the breakfast was pretty good. As a veggie, I very much appreciated that the vegetarian cooked breakfast included veggie haggis! First time I've seen that as breakfast option! The hotel offers a good range of breakfast options and the wee dining room is nice.
We won't be going back though - the grubby bathroom is a deal breaker. Which is a shame, as it's a nightmare finding good, reasonably priced, hotel rooms in Edinburgh.More
