So this hotel already has a lot going for it being situated in one of the world's most beautiful cities, Edinburgh. But it's then located in one of the most beautiful areas of the city. Found in rows of stunning Georgian town houses in the West End, the location is perfect, just far enough away that you feel you are in an oasis but still close enough to be in walking distance of the major attractions, shopping, and restaurants.
Your rooms are multi-room masterpieces. Particularly roomy for the UK, separate bedrooms, comfortable living areas with a well stocked kitchen. The bathroom was huge and luxurious, sleek showers, huge tubs it was a personal spa.
We had stunning views too, we could see the castle as we were on the top floor. There's no elevators of course being historic properties so if you don't like the hike be sure to request a lower floor, but I assume your view might be sacrificed a little, you probably also get higher ceilings too. Of note here is the fantastic staff who will gladly cart up your luggage.
Having a kitchen was a plus, the front desk was extremely helpful pointing out several conveniently located grocery stores. We were able to make several great meals in our suite.
There were so many nice extra touches with this hotel, they had an extensive free DVD library for example, for your well put together entertainment system back in your suite.
I didn't think a hotel could make Edinburgh even more impressive, but this place did. Don't even waste your time thinking about staying somewhere else. Wonderful.
