Not fabulous
The bed was comfortable, the room pleasant enough and the staff were nice. I was deeply disappointed to find a dirty towel that had been folded into the shape of a swan. Attention to detail is definitely lacking.

Broken TV.
Hi the place is nice and handy for Calton Hill and the Market. Staff were friendly. The telly in the room didn’t work though.....and they never offered anything to compensate. Could have offered a night cap at least. Shame because apart from that it was fine.
