We thought we'd treat ourselves to a couple of nights in our favourite UK city and decided on a bit of luxury for our accommodation.
First and foremost, the hotel is in a fantastic location ( you won't find more central than this). Step out the door directly onto Princes Street and everything you need on your doorstep.
Our room was very nice though, in truth, I'm not sure it really was worth the £290 we paid per night. Immaculately clean , comfy , well maintained and everything was in good order within. We enjoyed a good sleep both nights here.
We loved the bar which served superb cocktails. Breakfast was good as was lunch. We ate out at night so can't comment on evening meals. Service was excellent and they do try very hard to get it right. Overall, an enjoyable experience.
