    What a view

    The first thing that hits you is the view from the room and the size. The bar offers a family area which was great for our 2 year old. A large selection available at the breakfast buffet. Opposite a bus route which will take you straight in to the town centre. Only negative was the communication. We had tried contacting them over some of the kids items that we left and had to call repeated times even though we were promised a call back. That’s more todo with the central customer service number than the actual hotel staff them selves who were brilliant

    Weekend in Edinburgh.

    The hotel location is fine and the view of the city and over the Firth of Forth from our room was super. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. I would say that the only down side to our stay was the Restaurant, which was a pity, the service was very slow after 45 minutes at the table and a dish of olives for starters we had to ask what was the delay. When the meals finally arrived mine was O.K but my wife had selected Fish and Chips and both items seemed to have been reheated more than once. We should probably have complained about that as well but, being British, we made the best of it. As I state, that was the only problem and I am sure we would stay there again.
