Lovely hotel
Staff checked in with us before we arrived and were very friendly and welcoming during our stay. We ordered a room with a bath, however the jacuzzi bath did not work which was disappointing. Overall, lovely cozy room and great for our stay.

Shocking Management
Booked an overnight as a special treat for my husbands 50th birthday following a busy weekend in Paris. Hotel agreed to a 2pm late check out on arrival but reception called at 12 to tell us the late check out could not be honoured as they had guests arriving. As we were relaxing in the jacuzzi we said we would need an hour to get out we were then told a charge of £45 would be payable if we stayed until 2. Totally ruined the relaxing experience of the jacuzzi suite that I had paid so much for.

Lovely Boutique Hotel
Lovely boutique hotel with exceptional staff. Great location to explore Edinburgh within east reach of the best bars and restaurants, however , one downside the mattress was extremely soft and squishy and the middle of the mattress had completely gone bad enough to give a sore back in the morning.
