We've just got back from a one week stay at 10 Hill Place. We'd stayed once before - years ago - but also cancelled one stay with them as it had seemed their standards had dipped. We were therefore a little apprehensive as we didn't want to see a hotel we had fond memories of slip into shabbiness. As it was, we were impressed by the work done to the communal areas. The new wine bar is very smart, and I hope the restaurant gets similar treatment soon.
Our room was very much as we remembered; quite spacious, tastefully decorated and comfortable. Yes, there are signs of wear and tear on the furniture and in the bathroom but please remember this is a small hotel, not a massive chain, so I can forgive a few scratches and dents.
We found the staff to be very friendly and obliging, the bar man went out of his way to help us and the staff on reception always had a smile for you.
What let things down somewhat was the housekeeping, who seemed to miss our room on a couple of days. It was a little annoying but nothing that would ruin your holiday.
Breakfast was included in our rate and was very good. We liked that it went on later at weekends. The vegetarian sausages weren't up to much but I am assured that the meat ones were lovely! The toaster was rubbish - really slow and inadequate for a restaurant serving so many diners. It was great to have eggs cooked to order each morning though. They have a good system which works well. The hotel offered farls at breakfast, which were awesome, but it would have been nice to have hash browns too.
The hotel is in a good location. If the hotel bar proves a little costly there is a friendly pub a little way away called The Southsider which offered good value and has just been refurbed. It took us six or seven minutes to walk to the Royal Mile, maybe 12 to 15 minutes to walk to Prince's Street. There were lots of buses in the area, and loads of restaurants too. You are a stone's throw from The Surgeons Museum, The Museum of Scotland and many university buildings.
We were very happy that we returned to 10 Hill Place. Just a little more attention to detail would have got this a 5 star review - things like a gym room, ice machine, wine glasses etc. For what we paid I think we had a bargain, though, and I would love to go back.
