Please be careful when booking with this hotel as they will try to con you.
We had chosen this hotel for our New Year celebrations as we had heard good reports about their gala ball with its excusive view of the midnight fireworks.
They sent us a quote and then confirmed in writing that this included accomadation. We made our plans and booked our travel. However when we confirmed our booking they stated that there had been a 'typing error' and they required a further £600 per person per night.
We decided that we did not want to stay with an organisation that would change the goal posts in this way and had a wonderful stay at another Edinburgh hotel.
