Very Good8.0
Very decent, no complaints about quality of facilities. Room heating was an issue for me, awfully uncomfortable as I could not regulate aircon down to a cool setting so just tunred it off and opened window until such time room temp was fine

Exceptional10.0
Edinburgh....Brilliant
The hotel was everything that we needed. Newly refurnished, installed new 49" TV the day we left. Wonderful walk-in shower as well as tub. King bed was very comfortable. View of Castle out our 4th. floor window. Grassmarket is the best location in the city.....wouldn't stay anywhere else. Central to Castle, Museums, shopping and restaurants/ pubs are all right there at your doorstep.
