Für einen Kurztrip nach Edinburgh eignet sich dieses Hotel sehr. Das Zimmer war toll, Frühstück war super und die Innenstadt ist gut fussläufig oder mit dem Bus zu erreichen. Wir möchten das Hotel weiterempfehlen.

A Magical (mini) Castle!

Posted 28-Nov-2016
Pros: Premises, location, quiet, service.
Cons: TV was way too small!
Location: Arthur's Seat, Holyrood Palace, Old Town, The University of Edinburgh.
This hotel is located on the foot of Arthur's Seat, in the vicinity of Holyrood Palace, and at an okay distance from Old Town. What charmed us mostly about it is its building, which is an old Victorian house located in a rather secluded and very quiet area, surrounded by nature. I would recommend it to anyone hoping to stay in a quiet place with a magical castle-like ambience.

Amazing value.

Posted 21-Nov-2016
Pros: Just about everything.
Cons: Entry hall is very dated and slight damp smell, but room was great.
Location: Bus stop across road straight to city centre. Pub across road.
The room was spotlessly clean, lovely big bathroom and all staff were extremely pleasant. Easy commute to Edinburgh city centre by bus. Fantastic breakfast. Amazing value for money.

Over night stop.

Posted 17-Oct-2016
Pros: Our room was lovely and quiet, would never have guessed we were in the city.
Cons: Check out was 10.30 which was a bit early for me as we had been up late the night before.
Location: Short taxi ride from Waverley station, and bus stop just out the gate to get back into town. Busses every few minutes.
Was just looking for a one night pitstop in the centre of town at a reasonable price and with breakfast included.

Good spot. Only real downsides was the lack of an in-building check-in (had to walk to the next building over), and a low quality bed (not very comfortable), but clean.

Great Location, Great Hotel

Posted 31-Aug-2016
We stayed 5 days here wile in Edinburgh. It was located in a very convenient spot, only a 25 min walk from most tourist destinations, and only a few min from the trail up Arthur's seat. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. We were just expecting a serve yourself buffet, but they would actually make to order from the menu your warm breakfast items, and they also had a well stocked cold breakfast item buffet.

disappointed

Posted 24-Aug-2016 on Hotels
I had booked into this hotel, staying one night. I was doing a three day tour and then returning for three nights. I requested to store my suitcase and I was told that they were not insured for this and they did not have luggage storage. I was so disappointed that I went to my room cancelled the following booking and went to another hotel in Edinburgh where I was helped and felt more welcome. I have not been able to find a website to give them this feedback directly - I am also disappointed about that.
