Excellent from start to finish. They have a treasure here in Ivor who shows you to your room, explains how the discrete service hatch and complimentary shoe shine works, recommends restaurants with honesty, remembers your name the next morning and makes you feel utterly well looked after. I wish every hotel in the world had an Ivor.
Our room had a perfect view over Waverley Station to Princes' St., the staff at the excellent brasserie - and late night bar - which we happily enjoyed, were all very smiley and cheerful. Everyone here was friendly, unstuffy and had time to stay and chat.
Bed and linens lovely - BIG bath sheets - super little spa; quirky press themed crocks etc (this is the old newspaper building after all prior to its move to the Holyrood area); rose petals on the bed all combined to what was a lovely, lovely stay. Will definitely return.
