We had a standard room which was traditionally furnished with a nice view but I was disappointed with the small bathroom, which had cracked floor tiles. The bed was very comfortable, although it did have two separate duvets. Not a problem. The hot breakfast on the Saturday seemed to have been cooked in advance but the Sunday one was better. Fruit and pastries, however are not replenished so if you arrive after, say 9.30 you just get what's left. If breakfast is included in your rate, fine but otherwise I would go somewhere in town. Location was a little far out for my liking. It is a good 15 min walk to Princes Street and more for any of the sights. It is not somewhere you can nip back to mid day with your shopping and taxi fare is £5+. I would recommend staying here if you can get one of the nice bathrooms I heard of and you can afford frequent taxi fares.
