Stay was fine. Room as expected and breakfast good. Hotel rooms can be a bit stuffy, but opening a window means that noise from the street can keep you awake.

Good hotel position but not given room we Booked!
Chosen because we are Holiday Inn Members and decided on the Royal Mile would be best position! It was my wife’s 70th Birthday treat.... Had paid extra £50 based on the alternative Holiday Inns around Edinburgh! We were maybe a little late having travelled 4 hours by train, plus called at The Playhouse Theatre to collect reserved tickets for that nights show! Walked to the hotel, not realising was not the shortest route! Despite booking Double bed we had two singles, no doubles left and a disable style en-suite! We walked in to the rather dark but good size room and switched on lights but with all on it was still very dark..... kept thinking we have missed one light somewhere! When given the keys and given apologies for it not being the room design we had booked we were told we could move the next day if we wanted to! Despite our disappointment we stayed put rather than bother to move and accepted we had overpaid for the privilege!
