Welcoming staff. Great breakfast. Fab cocktails. Very comfortable rooms with some very good extras like the straighteners, brilliant for the often wet & windy weather. Location is excellent. I can't rate this hotel highly enough & would definitely stay here again.

Booked in November for a stay in February, Dougie (I believe is the GM) was very professional and courteous on the phone. The rooms are gorgeous and very well equipped! Huge free standing bath, rainfall shower, massive flatscreen and bespoke speakers, you can plug your ipod/phone into the aux input and play music in the bathroom or the bedroom too!...

We booked at short notice and took an exec room as their wasn't much difference in price. Good location, nice bar & restaurant. Staff were really good too. Nice clean room with lots of space and nice touches. Really great value and next time we need to stay in Edinburgh this is the first place we will look for.

The whole building is wonderful. Well finished, central, inviting and plenty of character. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The room was stunning, clean and full of extra high end toiletries and electricals (the bathroom was a highlight).

Bar staff were great. They were happy to talk us through all of the whiskey options and give us their honest opinion. The choice was great! Atmosphere was great. We visited on a Saturday early evening (5.30pm ish) and there was a real buzz to the place. Defo worth a visit.

Arrived on the Friday evening - just a 5-10 minute walk from station. The staff were very welcoming and showed us the main features of our room. We were at the top of several flights of stairs and it's probably worth mentioning there's no lift. The hotel is right in the centre of Edinburgh and most of the sights are...

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
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.

“Stairs quite long so if not too fit try get lower rooms”

“If you have trouble with stairs ask for a room on the first floor. It's still a bit of a climb but your stay will be worth it.”

“Go for exec room as not big a difference in cost, we used a comparison site rather than booking direct. We were top floor and no noise.”

“We stayed in room 2. The view was fab and the bathroom was the biggest by far compared to the other 2 Rooms on the floor. We had a free standing bath and a walk in rain shower. The are white company toiletries and god straightened so it's well equipped. Room 2 is classed as a superior room, however it was well worth the money and would defiantly recommend to those wanting to stay in Edinburgh. There are a lot of stairs but as to be expected in a beautiful building such as this. There is no lift due to the hotel being a grade A listed property so if stairs aren't your thing, opt for a lower room number such as 1,2 or 3. ”
