Stayed here for a few days in July for my sons graduation. Bedroom was nicely decorated and bed very comfortable. Bathroom was tiny but very well fitted and contained everything we needed, lovely fluffy towels and good quality toiletries.Did hear a little noise from the road but nothing that kept us awake the two nights we stayed there.
Breakfast was very good, plenty of choice and good quality foods on offer. Service was swift on the first morning we had breakfast, not so on the second one, the Spanish waiter seemed to be ignoring us and was serving people who arrived after us. When after waiting for about 20mins for him to take our order we asked him if he could possibly take our order he replied I will be with you in a minute then carried on serving other people. After another ten minutes we were starting to get annoyed and thankfully the owner walked in and we spoke to her about the matter. Carla was lovely, attended to our order straight away and harmony was restored.
Moan over, the rest of the hotel was very comfortable, nice lounge with well stocked honesty bar leading on to a lovely little garden for those who like to sit out in our sometimes lovely weather or in my case to have a fag.
Parking, was a bit worried about this but we got slightly discounted tickets from the hotel and car park was about 5mins away.
Really quite enjoyed my stay here( apart from grumpy waiter ) felt it was something different from the usual chains , paid about £180 for two nights including breakfast which at the time of me booking was very reasonable compared to a lot of hotels in Edinburgh.
