We stayed for two nights. We arrived with our hire car at 17.45 to find the Hotel doesn't have any dedicated car parking. We parked in the street while unloading and checking in and considered that by 6pm we would be clear of parking wardens. Big mistake for when we went for a walk at 6.30 we found we'd already been hit with a £60 parking ticket.
The Hotel itself is of a very high standard and the room was very well appointed, nice big bed and bathroom.
We tried the restaurant attached to the hotel and wasn't so impressed. Soup of the day "cream of parsnip" mixed Vegetables with the main meal - sliced boiled parsnips and carrots. The Buyer had obviously bought a large quantity of parsnips cheap!
Overall we had a very pleasant stay at a Hotel which very nearly has views of the castle and a ten minute walk to Princes Street.
