small, cramped room in a lovely building

Posted 21-Jan-2015
Pros: Breakfast and public spaces
Cons: When most hotels are empty, they put you in their best room not their worst!
Despite the hotel being quite empty, we were put in a very small room with little room to move. The shower head was so low we had to stoop to get under it. The hotel is beautiful and the breakfast was very good, but there are a lot of much better places to stay in Edinburgh than this.

Beautiful hotel full of character

Posted 11-Jan-2015
Stayed here with my boyfriend for three nights and we couldn't have been happier. The beautiful wooden staircase and library made us think of Harry Potter and our room was small but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was in another wood-panelled room full of character and with beautiful views. The continental selection was wide and varied with delicious cooked breakfasts made to order. Staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. We'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of visiting Edinburgh and will stay here again on our next trip.

Couldnt have asked for better!

Posted 01-Jan-2015
The hotel was situated in a nice quiet location while still being a short walk away from all the action. We had the family room which had a King Size bed and sofa bed with a view of Edinburgh Castle from the window. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom clean and modern. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would stay here again if I came back to Edinburgh and highly recommend this hotel.

Ambience, location and helpful staff

Posted 10-Dec-2014
Pros: Quiet street, comfortable rooms, good breakfast, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Coffee & tea available 24/7 in library. Close major destinations
This hotel manages to combine the essence of a bed and breakfast ambiance with all the amenities of a full service hotel. Comfortable rooms with good views. Its good location makes both the old town and new town walkable distance Several good restaurants within 5-10 minutes. Close to good public bus lines for destinations further afield.
