4.5* not 5.0*
Not a comprehensively 5* hotel: some aspects are, some aspects are classic 4-star 'boutique' economising. Not in the same category as the Balmoral. Pay accordingly. Exceptional concierges though - esp Nich. ("Nick")

Great Hotel in Great Location for Central Edinburg
Wonderful stay in a lovely hotel. Staff were attentive and professional. After initial check-in, we found our assigned room satisfactory but exceptionally warm. We opened the windows and left for the day, returning late evening. Our room (611) was even warmer than when we left it, I called reception and a concierge arrived promptly. We were immediately offered an alternative room, the concierge confessed the replacement room "had no view" but since no alternative was available we had no option but to accept. The concierge returned once we had repacked our suitcases and advised we had been allocated a better room (204) This room had similar facilities but was much larger - shame the room only had a standard double bed and small tv, as the footprint could easily accommodate much more luxurious facilities. The (free) wifi was patchy and slow but that aside, the hotel service and staff met expectations and we had a very enjoyable stay. The breakfast service was prompt and efficient, buffet selection was fresh and hot - we've stayed in other Edinburgh central hotels for a similar rate but this would be our first choice in future

not a boutique 5 star hotel
Stay was nothing like I expected, hotel is very run down apart from the restaurant area not the boutique 5 star I was expecting. lifts are old and slow, corridors are very old fashioned as was my deluxe room.....nothing deluxe about it, the furniture had probably been there a good 20 years plus. the staff however are lovely and very helpful.

The pool and bar were great, friendly staff. The room was absolutely roasting though, despite turning off the heating and opening the windows it was uncomfortably hotel
