From the moment the Doorman took our bags from the boot of the car, to him putting them back in two days later, we were treated to the kind of service that you only wish other hotels could emulate but miss by a wide mile. The whole team were fantastic, friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble, but better than that, they seemed genuinly pleased to help and take a moment to chat. On booking, I requested a castle view and this was duly provided, what better way to start the day than looking towards the castle and along Princes Street with sky that was an amazing blue, just far enough away from the pipers at Princes Street gardens and high enough above the traffic to be not bothered. I contacted the spa asking for a treatment for my wife and I, but wanted us both to receive it at the same time, turned out to be no problem, they juggled some timings and posted a note through the door to confirm the arrangements, excellent service and thank you to the spa staff. So thats it pretty much..... a really nice experience all round!
