Great small hotel
Rooms were small but newly decorated.Staff were very friendly. Very convenient for all the sights and is in a very quiet street at night.. Would use again as very inexpensive.

A great value place for a short stay
The staff were welcoming and check-in and check-out was swift. Great location and easy to walk to everything. The room itself was tired and very small without adequate room for both of our suitcases although it did have gorgeous high ceilings. Despite being modernised, there were marks on the walls and we had a tear in the sheet and quilt - this didn't bother us enough to complain to staff (and I felt they definitely would have rectified it) but did make the room feel a little used and abused. The bathroom was modernised but the toilet was super close to the floor - my husband struggled with it (over 6 foot) and even I found it difficult (5 foot tall!!). Loved the shower though. With that said, we understood it is a three star hotel and was good value - we appreciated the water and chips in our room too. A safe and gorgeous street. Perfect for a short stay in beautiful Edinburgh.

Boutique hotel in the heart of where it’s at!
Great hotel in a great location. I think we may have just been unlucky with the room. There was a drain problem that was very intense. The curtain had rips. The beds pushed together were uncomfortable. The rooms were gorgeous large rooms in general though and the hotel is in perfect location. Had we not arrived late and quickly needing to go out, we’d have told them about the room and I’m sure they’d have changed us as the staff were lovely. There’s a lovely wee hotel bar. On the street behind are great bars and restaurants. It’s a 10 minute stroll to John Lewis and the shops.
