enjoyable stay
We really enjoyed our stay here, the guy running it, called Sean was so nice, he could not have done more. Check in was easy, breakfast was really good, got an upgrade when we arrived, clean and tidy, so handy for Edinburgh city, bus stop outside and easy to get about. I would recommend this hotel and if we return we will be staying there. Thanks Sean, you were great!
