We booked a Junior Suite for an overnight stay in Edinburgh. The girls on the Reception desk were very welcoming and helpful and suggested places for us to go on our first visit to the city. A bottle of bubbly was provided in our room to help us celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary, which was an unexpected but much-appreciated nice touch. We enjoyed an excellent meal in the restaurant, Kyloe, on Saturday night. Service here and in The Huxley, was friendly, quick and efficient and The Huxley is a good place for relaxing and people-watching in a great atmosphere. The room itself was spacious. Other reviewers have complained about the views of the castle but we could certainly see it lit up beautifully in the evening. The decor is quite striking and certainly makes a statement. I enjoyed the jacuzzi bath but as it was deep I found it quite difficult to get out of without holding on to something - and the only option was a very hot towel rail. I was a little disappointed with the provision of toiletries - no shower gel (just a bar of soap) and no shower cap - so perhaps the hotel could add these for future guests. However, I was very pleased to find GHD straighteners and a powerful hairdryer, which is more than can be said for most hotels I have stayed in.
The hotel is in a ideal location - it is on the route of the shuttle bus to the airport and at one end of Princes Street, so even for us first-timers we found it easy to get our bearings and it allowed us to walk to all the main attractions in the city centre.
So all in all we would definitely recommend this hotel and its eateries for a weekend trip.
