This is a great wee hotel. I didn't even know it was there prior to staying. It is very close to all of Edinburgh's attractions. The rooms are lovely and well appointed. I ate in the restaurant both nights I was there and the food was very good. I was on a business trip but will definitely be back for pleasure.

I had this hotel booked for me by my work, so when I read the reviews I wondered (enough to bring a couple of bath sheets and a kettle). As it turns out, the towels are not just "hand towels" and are a perfectly reasonable size. There was a kettle in one desk drawer and a hair dryer in another. There is a mini-bar fridge I could keep milk in. The wifi works (although it asks you to agree to 'terms and conditions' you cannot see). The room is clean and reasonable in size -- not huge, but not tiny either -- and the bed is indeed softer than I would normally choose, but comfortable.

I loved having a fire burning in the lobby; that seems a nice touch.

We ate breakfast in the restaurant a few times, but found it pricey for what it was, and did not like that there was no option for a smaller breakfast, so ended up going elsewhere after the first couple of days. We did eventually get hold of the mysterious 'terms and conditions' for the internet. Nothing strange there except that no other guest had asked to see them, which is a little strange.

There is no parking. The nearest lot is down the hill (on a street parallel to Leith street). It is *not* at the building that says parking, but another couple hundred metres on. The big P is the pedestrian entrance. You might want detailed directions from the hotel clerk the first time! If I was without a car, I'd definitely stay here again. The car made it a little more difficult.

It was ok , staff friendly and welcoming, nice reception area and breakfast was good, bad points.....noises from the heating or boiler system made tapping noises all night in the room, stop serving food at 9pm so stuck if you arrive later, breakfast not included in the rate.

The room was small but adequate for what we needed, good location though.

Fabulous hotel, clean rooms, polite and helpful staff. Perfect breakfast with a good choice to choose from. Ideal place to stop, close to Waverley station, but just far enough away to nice and peaceful being tucked away at the top of the hill. Lovely view across to the sea from our room. Thank you.

Great hotel in a good location - less than 5 mins to Princes street. Friendly staff who are happy to help with taxi bookings etc, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Wouldn't recommend breakfast here as it's quite expensive and there are cheaper places to eat in Edinburgh town centre. I would stay here again.
