Room was a great size but noisy at night as near bins and rubbish uplift .
Joseph, gb1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Perfect for Hogmanay!
Staff were very friendly and helpful, but if you’re travelling with heavy luggage the entrance can be a little awkward and there is no lift up to reception on the first floor. Location was great, right on Princes Street, opposite the Scott Monument and 2 mins walk from the airport bus stop and Waverley Station.
