Excellent hotel. Impeccable service, including when dealing with less than typical requests. Nothing was impossible: neither asking for a specific item on the meniu outside service hours nor getting a good internet connection. The concierge staff especially was a wealth of information combined with personalised service: they understood the kind of clients and thus made appropriate recommendations. Had one of the best seafood dinners in one of the restaurants they recommended: Fishers in Leith. The doormen in kilts helped us decide the Scots are really nice guys! Great breakfast – everything top quality and wonderfully fresh. The only fault I could find with this hotel was the size of the double bed – a bit on the small side. We’ll definitely return as we felt it an intrinsic part of the very nice Edinburgh experience we had.
