I am currently staying here for a couple of nights. Just had to give a review on how happy we are for choosing this hotel. This is the first time I've stayed in Edinburgh and wasn't sure where to stay. Looked online and wanted somewhere that would accommodate us with our 4 children, had a view of the castle and a swimming pool. This place ticked all the boxes. The staff are so helpful. From my first phone call, to see which rooms would be best for us, to excellent service at breakfast, they have been so friendly and also have a smile.
We ended up with adjoining deluxe rooms with balconies and views of the castle. It is so lovely when lit up at night. They put an extra bed in each room. Plenty of towels, bathrobes, slippers and complimentary Pringles, jelly beans, biscuits, and bottles of water, all of which were replaced each day.
Breakfast was very good. Huge selection of cooked items, made to order. The restaurant is on the 5th floor with the same view of the castle as from the room.
The Grassmarket area has lots of small restaurants, cafes and bars. Short walk to the castle, Royal Mile and museums. Hotel has added bonus of car parking for £12 a day. We haven't touched the car since we've been here. Everywhere is close enough to walk.
Will definitely be back.
