Went here for my wife's birthday. Initially just for a meal with the family but then I decided to book a room for the night for both of us.
Now this is how hotels should be, great reception by the concierges, desk staff and restaurant staff. Car parked for you, bags to the room, everything organised to make the stay an experience.
The rooms are simply sumptuous with huge comfortable hug me beds, very large bathrooms and great views of the best city in the world. Our room was on the corner of the bridges and Princess Street and I was expecting a lot of road noise but there was none. The sound proofing is excellent.
We ate in Hadrians restaurant and it was fantastic from start to finish. The staff could not do enough for us, they even decorated my wife's desert plate with Happy Birthday. Breakfast is equally good with a huge selection of traditional, Scottish and continental foods, no haggis though or Stornaway black pudding.
Loved this place, we will be back - that's a promise.
