We were in Edinburgh for a few days for a short break, having never visited before. We found all of the staff in this hotel to be amazing and all very friendly and helpful. Hayley on the desk was great as was Ross the porter and all the other staff we came across, they are a great asset to this hotel. On check in we were told that we'd been upgraded to a better room- always a result! The room was a very good size and very comfortable, our particular room had a decent view from the bay window over the North Bridge and beyond. Everything we needed was there and it was all very comfortable. The room might need a spruce up soon to keep it looking top notch, but really it was more than comfortable as it was.
Didn't have a breakfast in the hotel as it seemed a bit steep (there are many great cafes in Edinburgh serving tasty breakfasts), but we did have a drink in the bar one night and it had a good atmosphere and an excellent selection of cocktails, whiskies and wines etc.
It was a bit of a maze to find the spa, but the odd layout contributed to the character of the place somewhat. The spa facilities were on the whole excellent, jacuzzi, steam room, pool, sauna all set out quite nicely so it was relaxing even though it was entirely underground.
In all The Scotsman contributed to a fantastic time in Edinburgh, I'd definitely recommend a stay here.
