    Weekend trip

    Very welcoming, comfortable bed and cosy room

    Stayed 2 nights in Oct 2019

    5/5 Excellent

    Quiet and upscale neighbourhood feel but only a 20 minute walk to sightseeing on Royal Mile. Very friendly, welcoming and accommodating staff did whatever was needed to ensure we had a wonderful and hassle-free stay. Room had a clean and comfortable “manor home” feel with modern amenities. Great bar and restaurant with amazing bistro food was just down the stairs or lift, yet our room was quiet. This is my favourite of all the 4 and 5 star hotels I have ever stayed at!

    I love that hotel. Waitresses could be a little more friendly and attentive but then again I’m from Dallas and friendly is in our nature.
