A good location for seeing Edinburgh, make sure you can walk as there is a steep uphill walk to the Royal Mile or a whole load of steps to climb. Grassmarket is a great location, there are bars, restaurants and nice views of old Edinburgh and the Castle from the hotel. It is a bit of a walk to get into the heart of the tourist area uphill, but don't let that deter you - its worth it !!
The hotel is very clean, spacious, and the rooms are excellent with a walk in shower and bath. Large screen TV's and comfortable beds. For those that want internet there is free wifi access.
The staff are welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much bother. Breakfast was very nice and quickly served with plenty of choice from buffet style to hot cooked meals. There is even and choice of breakfast on the move facility - where you can order the previous night and collect it at check-out in the morning if you're in a rush.
The advantages of the hotels facilities outway it's location slightly away from the main tourist area, but it's only a 15 minute walk to the main Waverley Railway station.
