Stayed for 5 days over Christmas. From our arrival on Christmas eve to our departure 30th , the level of facities and service was exceptional. We visit Edinburgh regularly and have stayed in most of the "premier" hotels over the festive season.

Wonderful place - really special and welcoming
Many hotels are fine but this one is really special - staff work so hard to make you feel welcome and can't do enough for you. Bar and bar meals are great, and the breakfast is perfect. Can't wait to come back

Great hotel in terms of service and location. Cost of breakfast at c£22 per head is far to much though.
