On arrival we were warmly greeted by reception and told we were upgraded to a superior room (not sure why but didn't complain) he was very helpful giving us a map of Edinburgh and booking taxis for us; Channings is approx 10mins/£6 from the centre.
The superior room was lovely - we only had a couple of niggles which we felt stopped the hotel from being a 5*; the double bed was two beds pushed together as we could feel a ridge in the middle and the cold tap in the bathroom didn't get cold.
Breakfast was included in our room rate and we thought good value, it was well organised and included fresh fruit, cereals and cooked.
We would definitely stay here again, the hotel is in a great location - a real homely Scottish boutique.
