We had a very nice room on the top floor. Clean, fresh, stylish, complete and very nice bathroom. The location of this hotel is perfect for a visit to Edinburgh. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. We were here during the week. Being on the top floor, we did not experience any noise from the pub or the street below.
There were a few hiccups during our stay, which in my opinion are the cause of communication going wrong between the office in Glasgow and the hotel in Edinburgh. When booking through the website of the hotel, I ticked the optional box for fudge in the room extra. This came at a cost of 6 pounds. When we arrived in the room, there was fudge, but it was part of the standard mini bar selection. So why give me the option of selecting fudge during booking? The price of this mini bar fudge was 2,99, by the way. I tried to ask staff if anything had gone wrong, but I did not get the idea that they understood what I was talking about. Fudge selected when booking? I chose to drop it, because I did not think it worth it. Second hiccup was that when checking out, the bill to be settled was substantially higher than the price I had booked the room for. I still had the reservation email, so they made a call to Glasgow and everything was settled in the end. Why I had gone wrong remains a mystery.
Nevertheless, we had a wonderful time and would certainly recommend the hotel to others.
