We stayed over the bank holiday weekend for 2 nights, we had a family room which consisted of a double bed & a single, although we could have done with 3 singles, but we didn't ask so not sure if they would provide this. The room was very spacious with a nice bay window overlooking the park, very picturesque. The bathroom was a bit 'cosy' but was good enough for our needs. One thing to be aware of is that the water gets very very hot and the taps have to be turned many times before the water comes out, so if you haven't turned the cold water on in the shower, be careful not to scald yourself!
The staff were all very helpful & pleasant. The breakfasts were ample & had a good selection for all types.
We didn't have an evening meal at the hotel, but we did eat at the Bistro next door which was very good & reasonably priced.
The hotel is in a reasonable location. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel which has regular buses into the centre of Edinburgh. We went in on a Sunday & the buses were pretty much on time, give or take 2-3 minutes.
We would definitely stay in this hotel & are recommending it to other family members who are attending a family gathering in September.
