Very good

Good room and excellent breakfast
Room was nice and clean. Asked for double bed. Breakfast was very good with lots of choices and many point to pick it from. Excellent Veg options with descriptions. A 15 minute walk from the Royal Mile. Go past many shops including Lidl, Tesco Metro and Sainsbury's local. Parking is free but limited. Get there before checking in time to have a greater chance. It's first come first serve. The security guy said it was full , we parked at reception to unload and found a free car park space behind our room. I parked there for the 2 nights stay.

Not the most luxurious but very functional and clean, would certainly stay here again! Great location and ideal for central Edinburgh

Very Disappointing
The window at the room was broken and we could not close it as it has an apparent structure problem. We came back in the midnight after enjoying Edinburgh Tattoo and found such a deficiency of the window. There was no chance to change rooms and we were faced to spend a night feeling cold and bearing noises from outside. We never have experienced this kind of basic failure of the accommodation. Very disappointing.

Okay by all accounts but noisy
Plenty of breakfast. Spacious rooms but there's is no sound proofing so if anyone in your corridor opens a door everyone hears it; and the beds creek
