Friendly staff,great hotel
Good location, 15 minutes walk from the train station, hotel was clean, friendly staff, the bed was really comfortable but the pillows were slightly hard but saying that had a really goofs night sleep, shower had no real power, room was small for a double but had everything we needed, cute little hamper of snacks free of charge were provided on arrival,nice quiet hotel would consider staying again when in Edinburgh

15 minute stroll from Waverley Street station, 20 minutes from the old town. Room freshly decorated, but possibly the smallest I've ever stayed in - even compared to central London and Paris. I still had to move the TV to plug the hairdryer in so I could see in the mirror! When I enquired about the difference between a superior (which I had) and standard room, I was told mine had different decor and carpet! Breakfast was £6.50 each; I had thought it was included until check-out. I did notice a sign on reception, but it wasn't mentioned during check-in or when going into the restaurant. Breakfast was OK for the price, but only hot food was bacon, beans and scrambled egg.

Great location
Lovely helpful staff who stored our cases and told us where to park. Check in was easy and everything explained. Room and bathroom were spacious. There was a nice hamper full of crisps, biscuits,water and tea etc. Hotel is a 5 minute walk from theatre, cinema and bars and a further 5 minutes to Princes Street shops. Have stayed before and will return.

This Cairn is definitely a rock.
Expected a small double was actually a family room with a huge double bed. There was also a welcoming free basket with crisps, water and biscuits. Everything was in excellent condition with free toiletries. Definitely be back. Coat about half the price of others in same vicinity
