I brought my 3 young daughters up from London for a few nights. The hotel is literally next to the train station (ALL GOOD... We heard NOTHING in terms of train noise), which was quite convenient.
We were greeted by the friendly door staff and then at reception--everyone was helpful and friendly. The girls even had kid-sized bath robes and slippers waiting for them in the rooms.
All of the major tourist sights are within a 10 minute walk and easy to get to.
The bar had some of the best hamburgers my girls have ever had and dinner in the restaurant was lovely, with many choices for all.
The pool was fantastic and a nice way to spend a few hours in the late afternoon. The spa staff were very welcoming and went out of their way to make sure the girls were settled.
Would DEFINITELY recommend a stay here to explore Edinburgh.
