Lovely stay in Edinburgh with great views
Great location and castle view rooms are fantastic although be warned it is very noisy area at night. Staff were helpful and friendly. Had breakfast at the hotel which was OK, buffet items were all fresh, cooked items coule be better quality considering the price and communication to customers when there are delays would be welcomed.

James and Theresa
We had a lovely three night stay celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. The staff were lovely and our room very comfortable with the fantastic view of the Castle. The only negative was the pool area was not dried out and the risk of slipping was too high for my wife and I to take a chance using the pool.

Great Hotel - would stay again
Perfect location, lovely rooms, comfy beds, friendly staff, easy check-in and check-out (with the offer to leave my bags so I could continue sight-seeing on my last day), and a fantastic view of the castle from the pool - which I had to myself :)
