Exceptional 10.0
Nice little hotel, handy for the Fringe
I was in Edinburgh for the Fringe and needed a base to easily reach different venues without spending an arm and a leg. The hotel is located 5 minutes from the end of the tram line to the airport, the rooms are big and clean and the bed was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was nice and staff polite and helpful. Couple of minor negatives: internet was a bit spotty in the room; front door needs a bit of oil, very loud noise when opened. But I would go back, plenty of Fringe venues close by and easy to get to Royal Mile.

Very good 8.0
Post Playhouse stay
The location is ideal for the playhouse. The road up to the hotel is steep if you are walking. If you have physical difficulties ask book a room on the lower two floor. The stairs inside are quite steep. The bed was not the most comfiest, also the frame is larger than the mattress. I knocked my leg a couple of times going round the bed. Breakfast is fresh cooked. Staff are friendly.

Poor 2.0
Terrible, worst mannered owner, avoid!
Avoid at all cost. Worst experience with an extremely rude owner!!! Shabby, drab, just the worst ever. We will never go here again and no recommendation. People who own and run this hotel need to go to business school to learn how to deal with customers. Nothing nice I can say at all.....
