Pleasant hotel in great location for Kings University site. The staff were friendly and the rooms were very comfortable and peaceful. Breakfast was good. Old fashioned decor but overall comfortable. No bath which was disappointing.

Ticks all the boxes.
Excellent location- very easy to hop on a bus into the centre (10 mins). Several bus routes go along this road so there is never long to wait. Hotel and accommodation extremely comfortable and quiet. It is on a main road but traffic noise in the hotel itself is very minimal and we were located in the lodge at the back where it was pretty well non-existent. Staff very friendly and food is excellent. A really nice touch was sherry and shortbread in the room on arrival. I am approaching 75 and have a bad back but the bed was very firm so no problems there. In short...absolutely perfect.....cannot fault

Quiet elegance
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The service was excellent and personal, the bed comfortable and the food very good. I was particularly pleased to have a choice of real Scottish dishes and loved the Cullen skink and haggis with whiskey cream sauce. The Jacuzzi was a real pleasure and I liked the ample supply of coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the room. The bus stop is a few minutes' walk from the hotel and I appreciated comprehensive information on busses and historic sites when checking in.

Friendly, comfortable, good location.
The staff were friendly, the accommodation very clean and comfortable, unfortunately there was no chef available so we had to go out for dinner both nights, breakfast very impressive would highly recommend it. Great bus service right outside hotel only 10 minutes into Edinburgh city centre. Would come back.
