We only booked this hotel b/c it met our budget and review criteria, though we were still holding our breath somewhat because of what we know of Best Westerns in the US.
We were looking for a B&B, but with the Edinburgh festival going on, nice accommodations on a budget were a challenge to find. Felt like we were on a treasure hunt!
Though this hotel does not include free breakfast, the price was affordable enough and there is a pot in the room for tea and coffee.
The room is clean and quite lovely with a canopy bed and a firm mattress with clean crisp sheets, and the covers are double sheeted which helps it feel more sterile.
We got a standard double room, and it is huge. With a room on the third floor, we have a view of the sea.
The bathroom includes a full tub and separate shower.
Wendy at the reception greeted us with the hospitality as if we were staying at a bed and breakfast, even walking us to the elevator to show us how to get to our room.
The only thing we've had a time with is the wifi reception, though free, it is super slow. Perhaps it is the location of our room.
Also, we took a taxi from the train station, and it cost about 12 pounds, so it's NOT close to town. However, there is a bus stop just yards from the hotel that runs every 12 minutes, and there are a number of restaurants within walking distance, if you're healthy enough for a little hike.
