Most comfortable bed EVER in opulent surroundings

Posted 18-Apr-2014
Pros: What wasn't to like?
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Prime location, within a short walk (or if necessary bus or forthcoming tram ride) of many of Edinburgh's attractions. At one end of Leith Walk.
Almost felt like celebrities with the opulent surroundings and the flawless attention from the impossibly beautiful staff. The room was spacious, equipped with everything one could wish for and the general ambience of the hotel and its surroundings were second to none. The bed was by far the most comfortable that either of us had ever slept in. Excellently located, its vast capacity was disguised by a modest facade. Would highly recommend this hotel for groups embarking upon a weekend in Edinburgh for its location, facilities and beautiful rooftop garden which would make an excellent meeting place for friends.

Above average city centre hotel

Posted 24-Mar-2014
Excellent charming and helpful staff were the high point. Very comfortable bed in less than comfortable room. Well equipped but cramped bathroom. Free (?) water but not always the glasses to hold it. Good breakfast but a long walk to get it. Overall a positive stay and would return.

Fabulous Hotel in a central location!

Posted 28-Oct-2013
Pros: Staff, location and the beautiful rooms.
Cons: The hotel has recently been refurbished however I think the rooms have been exempt, as some of the furnature is scratched and the bathrooms although i
Location: Theatre and cinema next door with a selections of restaurants. Shopping centre and the high street a short walk and access to all other tourist spots.
We always stay at this hotel when we visit Edinburgh. The hotel situated close by to Princess Street and the and easily accessible to all the hotspots that Edinburgh has to offer! The staff are always polite and friendly and will do anything to make your stay more enjoyable. The hotel has undergone some refurbishments making the stay more luxurious. We were lucky to stay in a suit which with floor to ceiling windows, balcony and large bed really make you feel like royalty. The rooms are clean with various gadgets and snacks to keep you entertained and if there is anything you want call the staff and they will get it! The is a snug with an honesty bar to relax in the evenings and a restraint which we have yet to sample. Last year we had breakfast in our room which was amazing, although a little bit pricey. I will always recommend this hotel,

felt very exclusive and very quiet

Posted 23-Oct-2013
Pros: roof top terrace and the rooms
Cons: nothing really
Location: close to everything
lovely rooms - amazing rooftop garden - we had a garden room - doors led out on to the terrace garden - would be lovely in summer. no main bar - just a snug - which was very comfortable. Did not hear any noise the whole time we were there - felt very posh and exclusive. Great staff If you want a lively hotel with a good bar - it is not the one for you we would return back
