      The hotel is clean and tidy, concierge service was excellent. My breakfast experience was not so good, cold plates, semi warm food, tea and coffee served from from a flask salt and pepper mills not working. Overall not a good breakfast experience. Location of hotel is good for getting into the royal mile and princes street.
