Out of the four places my husband and I stayed on our recent trip to Europe/UK, this one easily tops the list.
Ian and Alan, who run the establishment, were fantastic hosts who go above and beyond to create a wonderful environment for their guests. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, we felt comfortable and "at home".
Ian distributes excellent local knowledge regarding...well, just about anything. He seems to love a chat, and likes to find out about his guests, as well as be a source of information, which was nice for us.
The hotel information folder in your room will also provide tailored information for the Edinburgh area, with personalised recommendations from Ian and Alan about places to eat. This proved very useful in getting dinner.
There was sherry and chocolate in our room upon arrival, and since we stayed over New Year, there was also a nice gift provided when our room was serviced on New Year's Eve.
The whole place is decorated in a beautiful, tasteful and home-like manner. The room we stayed in was lovely, with the comfiest bed we slept in for our whole trip.
The room was serviced daily, cleaned impeccably.
Location was pretty good - there are bus stops right outside with a constant stream of buses that will take you straight into the city centre, which can actually be walked to very easily in fine weather. Many eating establishments within easy walking distance too.
If we return to Edinburgh in future, there's no question about where we'll stay, or where we'd recommend family or friends to stay for their trips.
