My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary over the last weekend in November. The hotel provides a wonderful breakfast with all the normal cereals, fresh bread and plenty of other bits that means your first morning repast will prepare you well for all the walking and sightseeing that is inevitable in Edinburgh. The rooms are clean and warm and although we had a two bedroomed apartment for the two of us (I don't know why I did that but there you are!) the rooms are quite spacious and not badly priced.
Holyrood castle must be Edinburghs prize possession! It is so interesting and it is not often that one gets to wander around in the footsteps of hundreds of years of Royalty and the worlds leaders. A wonderful experience so make sure you do that as it is but a 10 minute walk (or less) from the hotel. The Royal mile is literally yards from the hotel and if you walk uphill you will eventually get to Edinburgh castle. Go at about 12.30 and make sure you catch the 1 0'clock gun firing. Excellent!
All in all a good hotel but don't expect views from most of the rooms as it is well tucked away. A local supermarket is perfect for a the late night bottle of vino or a tasty snack but Edinburgh has some wonderful snacky restaurants with the most friendly staff (many of whom lived nowehere near Scotland for the most part of their lives!). We had a great time in Edinburgh and the hotel is well placed for the most popular touristy things. Shopping in the Princes Street area is a bit if a trek compared to the Royal Mile and we weren't there for shopping so didn't hang around too much in that area.
