Good 6.0
Helpful staff, clean, but poor breakfast
Disappointed to find no cooked breakfast and had to eat in our room as there was no dining room. Limited choice for breakfast as it was all pre-packaged.
Stephen, gbRomance trip
Fair 4.0
Disappointing
Not so good. Some TLC desperately needed. Breakfast was the biggest disappointment - a basket with juice and breakfast bars
DAVID, gb1 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Pleasant stay at the Playfair
A pleasant hotel in a quiet area not far from the city centre. It is an uphill walk to Princes Street but a bus stop to there is just across the road. It is an older place without a 24 hour reception. There is an Iranian restaurant in the basement serving good food.Continental breakfast is delivered to the room an
