Fabulous 8.6 From 435 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Best beds ever
Great location, comfiest beds ever in a hotel and good breakfast included in price. If I ever stay over in Edinburgh again it would be my first choice
Christina, gb1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
From Todmorden
Sister in law had accident with the door in the bathroom. Needs better warning signage. I was very disappointed at the charge of £20 per day for our little dog. The added £80 we had to pay put a strain on our budget. Feel this charge of very excessive when not even a dog bowl is provided. Otherwise cannot fault the hotel - staff very pleasant, breakfast really good, rooms clean.
