Boutique hotel in an old building with a quaint feel. We arrived early hoping for an early check-in (before noon). Fortunately, they were able to accommodate us, there were 5 rooms total with our large group…only one couple had to wait for 45 minutes until they had a clean room available. It was kind of a maze to find our room, there were closed doors leading to sections of multiple rooms. The hotel was in an old building but the rooms had been renovated and were very large with high ceilings. Over-sized windows overlooked Edinburgh, our view on the 1st floor, in the back side was pretty nice. The staff was helpful and the breakfast buffet was good; they had menu items as well as a buffet-style layout. I regret not trying the restaurant for dinner, the menu looked really good, but pricey.
The bad …because of the large windows and poor insulation, the room became chilly, the heaters were on a timed-controlled meter so we had to request an additional space-heater. There was no safe available in the room. The shower pressure was kind of low in our room, maybe due to old plumbing.
Overall- I liked the hotel, it was very homey and I think they did a great job with the renovation and styling, with what they had to work with.
