We have recently returned from a weekend in Edingburgh (December 2012), to celebrate my husbands 50th Birthday. This Hotel had been recommended by a colleague and I have to say the hotel was everything we had expected and more. Prior to travelling I had emailed the hotel requesting a room with a view of the castle. We had an early flight so we arrived at the hotel at 0830hrs, the staff were so helpful, and although are room wasn't ready they took care of all our luggage, they advised us on where to visit, local restaurants etc... By 1130hrs they had text us to let us know are room was avilable. When we did arrive back to our room a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine and a Birthday card was waiting for my husband and we were on the third floor overlooking the castle.
I would not describe the hotel as plush or luxurious, however, it was spotlessly clean and what made it for us, besides a fantastic location, was the genuine friendlinesss of all the staff, they couldn't do enough for you. I can highly recommend the full scottish breakfast. When we were leaving we had a late flight, the hotel looked after all our luggage until it was time to leave.They ordered our taxi and carried our cases to the vehicle. 1st class service.
The hotel is in an excellent position for all the sites, we had a fabulous time and we will certainly be returning to Edingburgh and particulary this hotel.
