Better late than never, my boyfriend and I stayed here for an overnight on the 19th February. It was a christmas present from my parents for DBB for one night using an itison voucher. Having planned to go into Edinburgh to do some shopping we arrived early to drop off our bags, and luckily for us our room was ready a good few hours before check in time. We were greeted well by all members of staff and were able to check in early. We were shown about the room and how to use the lighting and heating features, which are a lot easier than some reviews make them out to be. We decided to upgrade our room to a luxury double which was well worth the upgrade, the room was huge with more than what was needed for one night. Large double bed, large wardrobe, chest of drawers etc. They even had a DVD player in the room and fully loaded iPod with a variety of songs to play through the docking station.There was a large walk in shower and all robes and towels were provided for you, although I felt these were a little thin and tired they were ideal for one night. There was a mini fridge with various items that had a separate price list, although all the tea and coffee items, bottled water and fruit were complimentary. There was a good hairdryer in the room, there was GHD hair straighteners provided but these were the thin ones for short hair, I take my own everywhere anyway so just incase you have longish thick hair like me they may not be suitable for everyone.
In the evening we had made reservations in the hotel restaurant and received a beautiful 2 course meal, both my boyfriend and I opting for a main and dessert. Both of us had steak which was beautifully cooked and a massive portion. For dessert I had a tart tatin and my boyfriend the chocolate fondant, both were delicious. We then finished our evening in the hotel bar, having amazing cocktails made in front of us. The restaurant was busy although you still had privacy and the bar area was very cosy with couches and a fire.
In the morning we could either have breakfast in bed or go down to the restaurant, we wanted to go down to the restaurant as there was no specific time displayed that breakfast in bed would be brought to the room and didn't want it to arrive too early. Breakfast was cooked to order, as we are a bit picky there was some items neither of us wanted and we noticed that other items were doubled up to make up for this which was a nice touch.
Overall a fantastic and luxurious overnight in the capital city! Will definitely be returning in future. All staff we encountered were professional and very friendly, happy to help for anything. This hotel could easily be classed as a 5 star hotel!
