We have stayed here before and maybe even reviewed it. However this time we doubled our stay to two nights and again managed to get a deal, with Last Minute.com (all the other online booking sites were considerably more) so that we only paid a fantastic £81 per night including the delicious breakfast.
We were effectively upgraded, being given one of the best cheaper rooms ie no 55 on the second floor and wow what a great bargain! We must have been favoured as this was a considerably larger room than in our previous stay when we had found ourselves on the 3rd floor.
We had set ourselves a maximum spend of £100 a night over a Saturday and a Sunday and in fact had quite a few alternative options but after a great stay here last time decided we could do no better.
Parking was a factor and here we had no problems at all just using the street outside which was free on weekends. The hotel is based in leafy Learmonth overlooking one of those beautiful finely kept private gardens with a sublime view over the New Town to Comely Bank and beyond. It is the most beautiful building superbly well kept and with excellent facilities including totally free broadband wi fi access in the rooms and everywhere in the hotel. Excellent clean bathroom and lovely spacious light bedroom with a mighty double bed (two single beds together) and divine crisp sotton sheets. Tea and coffee making facilities and the complimentary biscuits reappeared on the 2nd morning after I had consumed them.
Breakfast is exceptional quality and offers a very varied choice - restaurant quality and plenty of it. Superb coffee.
The reception is friendly and helpful and check in could not be easier or more polite. Check out likewise.
Frankly ten out of ten, even at twice the price!
