Nice hotel. Excellent location

Posted 08-Apr-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Breakfast buffet was much too expensive.
The hotel is clean and comfortable. Old-fashioned without being stodgy. The location is terrific. Right on the edge of Old Town and New Town and all the sights.

Vi var to par på to værelser, og havde 5 overnatninger. Personalet var arrogant og og virkede konstant som om vi var til besvær - det at bestille en drink i baren eller tjekke ud kunne de næsten ikke magte.. Det generelle serviceniveau i Edinburgh var i forvejen ufatteligt lavt, så det er nok bare deres måde at betjene kunder på. Vi havde bestilt to værelser til præcis samme pris - de var vidt forskellige, størrelsesmæssigt og i forhold til komfort. Vores værelse var småt og klaustrofobisk med en meget lille seng (og dertilhørende lille tv, selvom det var ligegyldigt for os) og ufatteligt varmt. Airconditioneren gik derudover i stykker (selvom det ikke gjorde en forskel...). Vinduet på værelset var placeret så intet luft kunne trække ind.. Dog fint badeværelse. Dem vi rejste med havde (til samme pris) et værelse på dobbeltstørrelse med en kæmpestor seng og tv samt sofabord og lænestol, og et dejligt tempereret værelse.... Som udgangspunkt er jeg ligeglad med hotelværelset så længe der kan luftes ud! Men princippet i at vi betaler lige meget for to fuldstændigt forskellige værelser er meget mærkeligt. Desværre en rigtig dårlig oplevelse.

Good location

Posted 05-Apr-2015
Our choice to stay here was mostly down to wanting somewhere in a good location for walking to toruist bits but not in the very heart of it, and affordable. For the price we paid we were mostly paying for the location which was great. Positives: Staff on during the day were friendly. The room was a bizarre bit fun shape with a lovely curved window which we could see the castle from. The windows were easy to open with an easy to use heater. The shower was good and the bathroom generally seemed new. We had a daily supply of tea and instant coffee and shortbread biscuits. The 24hour reception was useful as we arrived at 10:30pm. Negatives: Some of the facilities had maybe seen better days. The bedside lamp light jittered on and off if sonething was put on the table. The iron leaked (was it just water?) on clothes during ironing which didn't seem to change with the setting it was on. The hairdryer had an attachment that was reluctant to stay on. The big disappointment thoughwas that the staff on the desk on arrival looked fairly miserable and didn't fully explain the money being blocked in advance for payment at the end. Whilst that may be normal practice they then took payment at the end, saying the previoisly blocked money would be back in our account in 3-5 days(?!). If we'd known about this process we certainly wouldn't have spent so much on a nice holiday. An advanced deposit would have been fine but the full amount plus extras in advance? = Would recommend for convenience

Excellent location

Posted 16-Mar-2015
Pros: The location and the fact that although it was central, it was quiet
Location: The location was 5 minuets walk from the station and all the sights of Edinbugh were very near by, plus all the restaurants and shops you could want
This hotel was near everything but there was very little noise. The room was spotless and had everything you could need, the bed was particularly good as it was extremely wide. The staff were very helpful and breakfast was lovely, also the bar area was very nice. The hotel was clean everywhere , we had a lovely 3 night stay and will definitely go back.

Very central to everything

Posted 12-Mar-2015
Very comfortable and pleasant hotel. Only very minor complaints- if you are on the 6th floor be prepared to use the stairs or wait and due to central location there can be lots of outside noise all night.

Excellent position and good value for money

Posted 03-Mar-2015
Pros: The position and value.
Cons: The bed linen is a bit tired (too soft mattress and lumpy duvet!), but it wouldn't be deal breaker for us.
Location: Loads! It's a very central location - it is very central to all the shops and tourist attractions..
The hotel was clean, convenient for Old Town, New Town and the train station. We had a quiet room. The bathroom seemed recently renovated and the shower was excellent. The view from the breakfast room was lovely to look at first thing in the morning. The staff were all very pleasant and polite. The decor is a bit on the old fashioned side, but the rates reflect this and on the whole it doesn't make the stay any less comfortable. We would definitely stay again.
