There for a wedding, so the rate was reduced-still £210/night incl.breakfast. The lobby is grand and has a great location, but the service was not of a standard I expect from a hotel like this. Exception to that were the valet/door staff, who were excellent. Had to ask 3 times for an iron to the room ,and as the room was not ready prior to the wedding (despite being called during the week about this and arranging an early entry to the room) , this really irked me. The bar was fine, nothing special, the meal at the wedding was decidedly average (& i'm sure it cost a fortune per head). i've stayed at the Radisson Blu in the Royal Mile and le Monde in George St and had a better experience--pretty poor value overall but certainly nothing special for the money. The room was nice compared to some of the other guests rooms-6th floor facing courtyard (not a great view but quiet), beds were decent but would I stay again- no!!
