Good stay in Old Town.

Posted 13-Sep-2014
Great location on the Royal Mile, courteous and helpful staff, nicely appointed room and bathroom, with lots of bed pillows. I booked a junior suite which gave room to move around. Bagpipes outside the room in the evenings. Spacious and clean gym had good quality equipment but no free weights.

Location, location, location...

Posted 09-Aug-2014
Pros: Location
Location: The royal Mile, the new town, the train station
The Fraser has an excellent location, near St Gilles Church in the Royal Mile. Tired? Return to the hotel, take a nap and return to the action. Good bed, free tea and coffee carafe, refrigerador, microwave, iron, etc. Helpful and nice personal. Walking distance to the train station.

Superb hotel, centrally located

Posted 08-Aug-2014
Pros: Classic appearance, convenience of location and generally high standard of accommodation. Polite, attentive staff dealt promptly with any issues.
Cons: The restaurant experience
Location: Excellent location just off the Royal Mile. Superb for Tattoo and Fringe! Here you really are in the heart of the action!
A three night stay during the Edinburgh Festival inorder to experience the Tattoo and some Fringe events as well as a visit to Holyrood Castle . A good sized room (Classic De Luxe) with comfortable bed and excellent shower and bathroom facilities. Very good tea making/mini kitchen. Good breakfasts with ample choice from cold buffet/continental style/cooked breakfasts, although on one morning there was some slow service and confusion over orders, which appeared to be caused by the lack of leadership on that particular morning. Ate dinner on a Sunday evening - starters and mains very good, but disappointed as only a few items on dessert list available! The bistro is apparently run by a franchise.

In the centre of most things !!!

Posted 06-Aug-2014
Pros: The hotel was in area for seeing everything, and in the old part of the city, so a excellent position.
Cons: The wooden floor in the entrance to our room, was very uneven and needed relaying, two cracked cups which should of been changed.Shower was dirty.
Location: The castle was just up the road, as well as a lot of the places to visit.
The staff were very friendly, offered us a towel on arrival as it was pouring of rain, so very helpful, left our cases with them as we unable to go to our room as it was to early. The Fringe was brillant and the Edingburgh Tatoo was Brillant, excellent and well worth the flight up to see it. I would suggest to remember raincoats if you go to scotland. LOL. we did have ours.
