Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic stay, myself and my girlfriend stayed for 3 nights and loved our stay. The staff are extremely friendly and have a great knowledge of the city and great recommendations. Checkin is extremly quick and easy. We booked the guest room and loved the room, the daily housekeeping service was amazing and the housekeeping staff are always smiling which makes your stay alot better. We ordered room service for our 2nd night and loved the meal. The hotel has a small shop which has much loved snacks and drinks. The drink selection wasn't massive but had myself and my girlfriends favourites. Hats off to Dylan on the front desk I belive his name was for providing some recommend places to go during the day. A few hotels I've been to in the past the staff would say just go a walk in the city but this wasn't the case for the courtyard, Dylan which i think his name was showed a map of the city and pointed to some lovely spots and also a few of his own recommendations which was amazing. Our last night we decided to dine at the hotels own restaurant which was amazing, myself and my girlfriend ordered the haggis bon bons and 2 pizzas which both were amazing. Our server Adrian was fantastic and extremely polite and nice, we both learned we both have nut allergies. Soon as I told him about my allergies it was less than a minute till Adrian Brought out the allergen menu which is extremely fast compared to other hotels. We had 0 issues with our stay and will definitely be coming back to stay with the hotel again in the future.

The hotel is situated next door to the playhouse and 5 minutes walk from Waverley Station. There is a tram stop and numerous bus stops with in 50 meters of the hotel so is ideal for transport and with in walking distance of all the main attractions. There is some renovation work going on in the foyer reception area of the hotel but this does not have any impact on your stay. Our room was a twin and well appointed with a nice sized bathroom with a large walk in shower. The room had a clothes iron, hair dryer and tea/ coffee making facilities and a large TV. Breakfast was included and was very good with a wide choice from cooked breakfast to continental. The staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. A good hotel in a convenient place. We will be using it again

Located in the New Town, location is excellent, it's a 10 minute walk from the Waverly station, however, if you have multi or large luggage, it would be easier to get a cab. A short 5 minute walk from the major shopping center, there are plenty of restaurants across the street and in the surrounding area. It's nice and quiet in the evening, the beddings are nice and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is always crowded, but there is plenty of hot and cold selections to choose from. The hotel is under renovation, so part of the lobby area is fenced off. Overall, it's an excellent hotel, good price performance ratio, worth recommending !

My partner booked this hotel for my birthday as we were attending a comedy show next door. Fantastic venue for the playhouse a couple doors down. Staff happy to help and friendly on front desk. It was my birthday and they left some chocolates in the room which was a lovely touch. Room was spacious and clean. Great nights sleep in a very soft bed. Bathroom was huge too. Lovely view of the hill behind the hotel.

This is a great hotel, with only a few minor blemishes. First of all the staff are the friendliest I have ever met, brilliant is an understatement. The young lady who was on reception at about 17:00hrs on the 22nd Feb set a stunning example of professionalism and customer focus. The hotel is immaculate and modern, my room was well proportioned and modern. Now the flaws, the shower was terrible now power whatsoever. Would I stay here again?????? ............100% YES

Very nice hotel. Nothing too much trouble for the staff. We had a problem with air conditioning in our room when we arrived and we changed rooms no problem. Nice fresh feel to the hotel and very good location for all of Edinburgh attractions. Definitely recommend to others and use if we return again.
