We stayed at the hotel from the 2nd to the 5th November. this is a Briliant small boutique Hotel but in no way stuffy, in a perfect location. There is a great atmosphere in the pub/resturant with really good food. the rooms are very nicely appointed. the staff were really friendly and could not do enough to help you. would most definitely stay there again.

stayed in Edinburgh for a weekend break and I would highly recommend this hotel. Modern and spotlessly clean with everything you could think of provided - even down to hairdryer and GHD straighteners (vital in Scotland I discovered!). Very comfortable bed, lovely hot showers - overall just great hotel!!

First time here, the staff were lovely and the assistant manager Chris was most helpful. The only criticism I have is the room we stayed in Room 3 could do with double glazing as you could here the noise from below till early hours also quite a draught came in. The other thing was the lights below shone up and even with curtains closed it was still very light apart from that a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Do not get Room 3 as a lot of noise from street below

We stayed here for a weekend and we felt in love with "the Inn on the Mile". Design is really modern, beautiful and interesting. We found everything in our room (even curling irons!). Gyus on the reseption are very friendly and are ready to help you. And the pub is a very cousy place with alive music, good place to spend weekend evening with friends.

My English is not so well to say you all my emotions of this hotel, but I will reccomend it to my friends.

Thank you:)

We popped in for a spot of lunch before continuing our sight seeing. This place has really changed since the Bank days but for the better. It has gone from being dark and dingy to a bright and welcoming place and I'm glad the oversized bar in the middle has been moved. We had steak pie and a pint and it was very tasty and just enough for lunch. At £9.99 this was more than I would normally pay but this is to be expected in the Royal Mile right in the centre of the tourist area. The service was really good and very quick despite the fact that it was busy. I will definately check out the accomodation as it really is in an excellent place for sightseeing. I will definately be back.

We arrived after our transatlantic flight tired very early in the morning. The staff was friendly and let us leave our bags while we explored the Royal Mile. When we returned after lunch our bags were in our room and we were checked in. Good thing our bags were in our room! We were on the top floor of some really steep stairs! We planned our outings in order to allow for only 3 or 4 hikes up those stairs per day! Our room was not made up as requested but that was quickly remedied. The beds are soooo comfortable. We slept for 12 hours, no noise problems for us. The top floor is quiet. I think it is well priced for a city hotel that is very conveniently located. Walk left to the castle and right to Holyrood with so much in between! The bathroom was ultra modern and very difficult to use. The toilet is in a separate room... The shower overflowed every time we used it. We also were given a free drink and it was appreciated. Excellent amenities in the room. It was fun to sit outside in front of the pub and people watch.

Room Tip: If you do not mind the stairs, stay on the top floor for a good night sleep.
