Stayed here overnight for my birthday.The hotel was lovely,right on princes street which made it handy for shopping & next door to the train station.Noise level from our room & bar/restaurant was fine so must have good insulation.However had a view of a brick wall out of the windows.
The food in Hadrian's Brasserie was really nice & all staff were friendly & efficient.
Our room was huge,but the bathroom seemed small compared to the size of the rest of it.The big let down was the bed.It did look like a super king but was two singles zipped together with no mattress topper to help.I hardly got any sleep that night because the mattress was far to hard,fine if you like that but I have joint problems so need a mattress with some give in it.One of the worse beds I have ever "slept" in,otherwise would have had a 4 rating.
