          I have felt welcome since coming in the doors. We were offered a complimentary upgrade, but unsure why. Maybe because my touring company had us in a terrible hotel in York, but they got this hotel right. Staff is helpful and welcoming. Will visit again.

          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
