    Perfect Hotel!

    We stayed at this hotel for two nights in November 2019. The hotel is perfect for your weekend city break to Edinburgh. The tram stops just a couple of blocks away from the hotel so its very convenient to/from the airport and well located on a street full of shops and restaurants. Our room was a good size, comfortable and quiet. There is also a little coffee shop that offers a quick option for breakfast and coffee before heading out for the day. You really can't ask for a better hotel and we already planning our trip back to stay here.

    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    Moved to a room with no heating in November. Management were aware there was no heating as they immediately brought a heater when I asked The heater was too small to heat the room. I was really looking forward to the stay but found it very disappointing.
