    Disappointing

    Hotel did not seem to fulfil our need to ‘treat’ ourselves for a few days away … first since March 2020. For the price, I expected a more luxurious experience. On the plus side… Rooms were very clean, beautifully decorated and appointed and all staff very professional, helpful and friendly. Central Location is very good too if travelling by train. Breakfast fell well short of our expectation, vegetarian/vegan options were very limited even down to not being able to provide an alternative to butter.

  • 6.0.Good

    Not as good as it thinks it is.

    Although we arrived only 20 minutes prior to the 3pm check in time we were dealt with in an almost admonishing tone and manner at Reception and told we would have to wait, which we did. This jarred in comparison to the welcoming and accommodating attitude expected from a high end Hotel and which we have experienced in less pretentious accommodation over the years. This was not the friendly welcoming experience we had anticipated. The room was spacious and clean although the breakfast was disappointing. All in all certainly not an experience we would consider again and certainly not worth the money we had paid. There are much more welcoming and less pretentious Hotels available within Edinburgh thank goodness.

    No major issues

    No real issues other than a big clump of hair on the shower mat that never got cleaned all week, even though they changed the towels next to it under the sink.

    Amazing hotel and room but bar service poor

    Hotel and room were amazing (this is our second stay at this hotel). However bar service for drinks was very poor - waited nearly 45 minutes for a drink on the evening when there was hardly anyone in the bar.
