Excellent stay - great service
Lovely overnight stay for the Festival. Shame we couldn’t stay longer! Excellent room and service from concierges and reception staff and very satisfying breakfast to set us up for the day. Will definitely return given half a chance!

Weekend away
Spent a lovely weekend up in Edinburgh in July 2018. The location is central and we asked to Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile and Holyrood. Lots of restaurants and cafes. The service especially the concierge Ansten were brilliant. The room size was cosier than expected otherwise a great stay overall!

Great fade for Edinburgh weekend
Room and breakfast excellent. Bar poor due to change of part of bar to champagne bar with poor advertising. Also main bar no longer has signs on beer pumps, which is pretentious. Was a great bar before the changes.
