Stayed one night on Thurs 19th Dec. Very good location, close to Grassmarket, the castle and Princes Street. Excellent, friendly reception staff. Room 106 was spacious enough, this was a disabled access room and was nice and quiet. Good sized king size bed, although it was 2 singles together so need to watch you don't fall down the gap if they happen to move!
Hotel has a nice small pool and jacuzzi, as well as a sauna and steam room, which we had to ourselves late in the evening. Ice machine on our floor, spare pillows in wardrobe, nice tea making facilities and a fridge in the room which is handy.
Breakfast was pretty good, nice selection of the usual choices.
Hotel does have its own car park, but it is £15 (? per day/24 hrs) but parking in Edinburgh is both a nightmare and expensive so may as well park at the hotel and forget about rushing to top up car parking meters. Pre-paid hotel room and breakfast online - breakfast costs £8.95 pp this way rather than being more expensive if you pay on t.he day
Smooth check-out and would stay here again.
