Great stay!
Great time in a lovely hotel, great location for our night at The Playhouse. Room was spacious and very comfortable. Views were amazing. The only one thing that let the trip down was the noise. Noise from traffic and the ongoing works on Leith Street. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Food and drinks were amazing.

family special occassion.
Service noticeably very very good. Had 2 luxury rooms booked for special family occasion. Rooms were spacious and very good mostly. Décor looked a little tired, but a minor problem. Generally happy with things. Ate at no1 restaurant. Expensive but very very good. Minor hiccup was that my main course could have been warmer. Was offered a fresh replacement ,but not bad enough to send the dish back I felt.

Total indulgence
Absolutely amazing weekend. All of the staff are the most professional I have witnessed anywhere. The suite was spotless and modern and the harp player played Happy Birthday on my wife’s birthday! The pool and spa helped overcome the weekend’s excesses!
