I booked this for my partners birthday as he had never been to Edinburgh and it's such a lovely city. We arrived around 10am on a Saturday morning, went to check in and were greeted by polite & helpful staff. They advised us that as the check in time was later we could leave our bags there so we could enjoy our day. As we went back later in the evening to go to our room we were advised we had been upgraded to a suite-like room I cannot remember the full description of this though. We were taken to our room and shown the facilities. We had a beautiful view looking out towards Carlton Hill. The bathroom was lovely and if you put the television on you could play the speakers into the bathroom which is nice for music. You get complimentary bathrobes and slippers which is lovely. We had a lovely sleep and had coffee making facilities for the morning as we don't tend to make breakfast reservations as you never know what you want to do. The staff said we could leave our bags until we needed to go home, which is great for going around on our second day. We visited the castle, Carlton Hill & Edinburgh dungeon (which is really funny). The train station is a stones throw away. My partner said it's the best British hotel he's ever stayed in if that's any help :-)
