Booked this hotel at the last minute for a business trip to Edinburgh. Initially a little worried by the mixed reviews on TripAdvisor. When I arrived in the evening I got a friendly greeting and was shown where my room was located. I stayed in a double in the front basement of the hotel with a view up to the front street and hotel entrance. The room was large and the decor was in some need of refreshment but it was comfortable and clean. It was quiet enough and I got a good nights sleep. There was a smell which I have read about in other reviews but this was also evident outside the hotel and I am pretty sure there must be a brewery nearby as I recognised it as the smell associated with the brewing process and it didn't bother me. The bathroom had a large bath but tiny shower, personally I prefer a large shower but I am sure others would like the big spa bath. The location of the hotel is pretty good, close to the office I was visiting but also close to Edinburgh City centre and Haymarket rail station. I would stay here again if I couldn't find somewhere better but would most likely try somewhere else if possible.
