a quiet retreat ....

Posted 03-Dec-2014
This is a lovely old well-run hotel located in a quiet oasis a short distance from the beautiful city of Edinburgh. Comfy, clean and an excellent choice of breakfast.

Colazione ottima e non proprio al centro

Posted 06-Nov-2014
Pros: la colazione
Cons: la reception
Location: l'artur seat è eccezionale e proprio a due passi.
Le camere sono di tipo moderno, contrariamente da quanto si possa immaginare dalle foto dell'albergo. La colazione la consiglio vivamente, sia quella inglese che quella italiana. L'unica cosa che veramente è risultata inefficiente è stata la reception, visto che hanno creato troppi casini con le camere e con i riscaldamenti. La pulizia nulla da ridire. (non c'è la tv via cavo)

Hotellet förtjärnar 4 stjärnor.

Posted 28-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
Hotellet var bättre än förväntat, förtjänar snarare 4 stjärnor än tre (i engelska mått). Rummen var stora och fräscha, speciellt badrummen. Frukosten var god och servicen toppen. Hotellet ligger en bit från city kärnan, tar cirka 20 minuter att gå.

Don't be fooled it's not a B&B hotel

Posted 23-Oct-2014
Pros: Location was quite good for those who like a walk and an explore
Cons: Dining facilities and description of the accommodation. This is not a B&B in the traditional sense
Location: 20 min walk into town, which is nice for exploring. Convenient for walks to Arthurs Seat.
This place was more akin to posh university accommodation. I booked looking for a nice B&B style hotel so I was disappointed that this was not clearly explained. For example the reception is in the university hall up the road not even in the hotel building. Breakfast was 7.30 till 10am but they don't mention clearly that between 8.45 and 9.45 its busy and you cannot get a seat. We had a taxi to catch at 10am and felt rushed during check out. Dour faced lady in the dining hall wouldn't help us at all.

Clean and comfortable

Posted 19-Oct-2014
Pros: The location, the beautiful decor, the cooked breakfast.
Cons: Clarity of where to check in, and when I book a double room I want a double bed - not two single pushed together
Location: It's on the edge of Edinburgh, about 30 minutes walk from Princes Street and Waverly Station. Not a lot close nearby.
We booked this because it was five minutes walk from a wedding we were attending. The website didn't say, but it turned out to belong to Edinburgh University, and they seem to be selling spare capacity in their guest accomodation. The building is absolutely beautiful, although it's not really set up as a hotel. It was a couple of minutes walk around the corner to another building to register, but that wasn't much of a problem. After that, it was keycard access to the building and the room. The building was spectacular and the room well set out, roomy, and rather wonderfully had windows on three out of four sides. It happened that the room was set up for wheel chair users, and so far as I could tell very well - although not somethng we needed. Breakfast in the morning was included, on the ground floor same as our room. We had an absolutely delicious cooked breakfast that I can't fault. Worth mentioning that there's also a shop and university bar on the same site. The bar closed about 10:30 but the shop was still open at 11, which was very helpful on arrival.
