Lovely castle. Attentive staff at breakfast
Beautiful location and interior. Actual room was a bit tired with scuff marks along skirting and walls and marks on carpet. These didn’t really bother me as it was a business stay. Food gorgeous. Breakfast limited to continental as there was not a veggie cooked breakfast option. Very attentive staff

Family Easter Break
Only complaint is that the breakfast could have been warmer. That said lovely hotel set in beautiful grounds. Will ge our preferred choice when visiting Edinburgh again.

Great receptionist
The receptionist working at the castle is amazing - there was one slight problem and she sorted it straight away. Overall great location and great room.

A heart find
A superb hotel with a fascinating medieval history, beautifully refurbished together with great food makes it an ideal retreat from a busy day with definite romantic overtones

It was very interesting the history of the castle, I just think the bed was uncomfortable, and the bathrooms could do with updating, also the lift didn’t work, but the breakfast was lovely, and the staff were very helpful.
