Reviewed 6 May 2014

Stayed here over the May holiday weekend, could not fault the place at all. Room was fantastic, very high standard of cleanliness. Stunning bathroom with a fantastic shower, no shortage of towels and bath robes provided. The bedroom itself included a 3D TV, iron and ironing board, glasses including champagne flutes and wine glasses, a fully stocked (and very reasonably priced) mini bar and most importantly a very comfortable bed. Location was also fantastic as it was nearby to where we went out for dinner, and directly across from the Playhouse where we were going to see a show. Staff were top class as well, only regret is that we were only staying one night - we will definitely be returning and next time will definitely try the restaurant and bar there too. Highly recommend this place!

Stayed over the bank holiday weekend, location couldn't be better right opposite the Playhouse and a 10 minute walk into town. Had the Loch Shiel room at the front of the hotel it was huge I have honestly never seen a bathroom so big. Amazing free standing bath and huge shower, even like that you could see across the road from bathroom. Bedroom brilliant had a massaging chair, 3d tv and lovely appointed room. Top class and super friendly staff would recommend this hotel to anyone. Top class

A pleasant stay in this contemporary hotel . The room was decorated in a modern style with great facilities including a large TV , a skylight window , a large bath with TV , and a nice shower . We received a complimentary newspaper . There was a well stocked mini bar and real coffee in the room . Unfortunately breakfast was not included which would have been nice however no complaints about our stay .

Found this hotel through word of mouth and wasn't disappointed.
Beautifully appointed large room, nicely decorated, and very friendly staff - especially Brian, an impeccably dressed red head for whom nothing was too much trouble.
The hotel is lovely mix of classic, modern, contemporary and makes you feel completely at home.
We loved the location and enjoyed exploring Edinburgh on foot.

Will not hesitate to choose to stay here again on our next visit.
Excellent.

Stumbled across this gem whilst looking for somewhere close to the comedy club and so glad we did! This hotel is simply stunning, rooms to die for and staff who will bend over backwards to help! We had a minor issue with the television in our otherwise perfect room. Within 10 minutes of reporting this we were upgraded to an even more perfect room with fantastic views. We ate in STEAK the following day and had the best meal we've had in a long time with the friendliest, most personal service. Thank you to all the staff for making it a wonderful stay. Already planning our next trip!

The reception staff were very friendly and the common areas, lounge and bar, were well finished and very clean. We stayed in the room "Loch Ness" it had great finishing’s, a good selection of complementary hot drinks (sweeteners needed) and good sized TV. The shower was great and the bed very comfortable. My only reservation for this room would be the number of stairs climbed to get to it, which although fine for me, may put off less able customers. There were rooms available on lower floors which would prevent these issues! :)

Overall: fantastic room, great nights sleep.

Stayed here for a night with my partner in April and what a lovely stay it was! Room was gorgeous - classy but understated decor and spotlessly clean - with a very comfortable bed and nice little extras. Good sized modern bathroom with very large shower, again very clean. Only thing I would think to note is that our room overlooked the main road and for very light sleepers this could be a problem as the road is quite busy through the night. However neither my partner nor I were troubled by the traffic. Also, as far as we could make out the hotel does not offer a breakfast service but there are ample cafes etc nearby so this was not problematic. All in all a stylish and very comfortable little hotel and we will definitely be coming back!
