Stayed here while attending a birthday party in the area, room ok, but one chair had a huge tear in it. Chipped furniture. Reception, bar and restaurant areas are nice. Had breakfast, my only complaint was the way the potato scones were cooked. I'm a bit of a potato scone connoisseur and get unhappy if they are not cooked in butter, Think theses ones were semi toasted. Good selection on offer for breakfast.
Good location, for visiting historic parts of town and fringe festival. however bit tricky to find walking from Waverley station. Once you know the short cuts it's ok. Lots of roads works in area, which is not great for car use. Hotel offers car parking, but it's first come first served. So you might end up parking elsewhere as we did. We hired a car for one day to take in sights. Getting out of Edinburgh was dreadful, due to traffic diversions etc. Grassmarket area not really served well by public transport. You need to walk to Bridges or George St for that. At the time Princes St was closed due to tram works.
Staff friendly and helpful and there is a little duck waiting for you to adopt it.
