We recently stayed in Edinburgh for a family birthday celebration. The location of this hotel was perfect only a short walk from the Royal Mile. The breakfast was included and nice (would be perfect with Hashbrowns and Mushrooms!). There is a little bar in the...More
Found this hotel through a web-search. It is about a 5 minute walk away from Edinburgh High Street. Room was very good and in addition to having a double bed also had a sofa bed where you could sit and watch TV. I believe it...More

The hotel is in a great location just off of the royal mile, in between the castle and holyrood palace.

Great location, quiet but central. Clean and comfortable, helpful staff and a good breakfast to start the day. Room was clean and well serviced. Can't recommend highly enough. Got let into room early and had a late checkout, although you can leave bags if early...More
We stayed at the hotel for 3 night and could not fault it all all. We arrived a little early but we're booked in straight away by Patricia who was really lovely and we were given out room straight away which was a bonus.
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
Sorry only just saw this. No idea where the bus station is. We got a bus from the town centre to the royal yacht. We also walked from the rail station to the hotel with our cases. I think the bus station must be fairly close.
