I arrived early in the morning after my international flight and I had a short wait while they got my feather free room available. They graciously invited me to join in the breakfast, and although the breakfast area is crowded I did not see anyone go without seating. We were there in July during the University's graduation and they handled the crowds very well.
The food was fairly standard RI food but was prepared extremely well and I loved the addition of the Scottish scones.
I have severe allergies and had no issue in these rooms with hardwood and tile floors. I loved the large windows that opened and kept the room well cooled. You could see right across into the apartments -- but very few people were at home.
I was also concerned about the distance to the sights but it was all very walkable and nice to have the National Museum of Scotland so close. All the walking was through what I considered "nice" areas. After long days of walking and sightseeing it was very nice to come back to the very comfortable RI.
Every single staff member was terrific, willing to help, had great suggestions and terrific attitudes.
