Good location , over the hill from Princes Street .....though this hill is a bit steep for a short while and would be tricky for people with walking problems. Whole hotel is spotlessly clean and furnished in quite a grand and traditional style. Fabulous soft white , large bathroom towels , Molten Brown shower and hair "stuff" and a superb power shower. On the down side , the Scottish breakfast is poor with very bland sausages, bacon and black pudding . A better alternative is to order 2 poached eggs with smoked salmon and wholemeal brown toast. William at reception was utterly charming and helpfull.
