booked a room for one night at the last minute for an overnight saturday visit to edinburgh. the hotel was busy so we booked one of their small doubles. I knew we would not be spending much time in the room so I wasn't too bothered about the size. Room was small but perfectly adequate for our needs. What was a pleasant surprise was that there was a bath in the bathroom. I had assumed a small double room would just have a small shower in the bathroom but the bath was a bonus. Our room overlooked gardens at the back and was extremely quiet. It was a warm evening and we left the windows open which was nice to get fresh air and silence at the same time. Free, and easily obtainable, parking on the front street.
Our room rate included breakfast. The buffet selection of fresh fruit, yogurt, fruit juice and cereal looked plentiful. We both chose a cooked breakfast. My husband enjoyed his but I was a little disappointed. The bacon, sausage and black pudding was furnace hot - I almost felt as if the taste had been singed out of everything. However, a very minor point and probably just a one off blip.
On this occasion, this hotel fitted our needs perfectly and I would definitely stay here again.
