We stayed here for two nights to end our holiday in Scotland. The hotel was in a great location if you wanted to avoid paying city centre hotel prices but not be too far away to explore the city. The hotel also had ample parking. There is a bus stop outside the hotel and the hotel has cards with all the bus numbers you can catch which was a great idea. Buses were frequent and you could buy a day ticket, the bus took 10mins and ran quite late. We did walk in on one occasion and it took 30mins but it was a nice flat walk with lots of shops, cafes and restaurants along the way. The room we booked was lovely. A superior room with a four poster bed and jucuzzi bath. There were nice extras such as a decanter of sherry and shortbread biscuits, small bathroom toiletries and fluffy towels and chocolates. We were also invited for a welcome drink on our first night but did not make this as out exploring the city. There was a bar/lounge area and conservatory with computer access although as we were only there for two nights we did not get chance to use these. The bar was an honesty bar were you wrote down what you had and paid at the end of the stay. This was a nice idea and the prices looked reasonable. Breakfast was lovely, fantastic choice and you could eat as much or as little as you wanted. The hotel staff were very efficent and polite but perhaps lacked that personal touch however I would definately recommend this hotel to others and we would stay again if we came back to Edinburgh.
