    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The location is the best possible, steps away from the Royal Mile, Princes Street Garden, and Georgian New Town. Castle view rooms allow you to see the castle in different light all day and lit at night as well. And the Peacock Alley Lounge is a wonderful spot for tea or a drink.

    My wife and I stayed at the hotel after travelling from Gretna green after getting married. On arrival the staff could not do enough for us they were fantastic! We were also surprised with a complimentary bottle of champagne and chocolates in our room which was a lovely gesture. I would recommend this hotel to anybody without a doubt.
