Perfect hotel for our short stay......
The hotel was brilliant, great reception staff. Lovely clean comfy room. The only thing that could do with some improvement would be the breakfast environment and staff. The choice is continental which suited us fine, but the staff clearly don't want to be there. Found them to be abrupt,unfriendly and not very welcoming.

Ok but could be better
Being in the old town of Edinburgh the hotel reflects the style, there are no lift so you may want to consider this if you have mobility problems, the room itself was spacious (room 302) but the bathroom was one of the tiniest I ever see, so much it was a problem taking showers as there was no much space to move, there are no shelves so it was challenging using toiletries. The hotel states it 4 starts, but there is no fridge in the room which I find very odd for a hotel with this ratings. Overall is close to the centre which is a plus point, in my opinion the right price for this hotel is maximum £60 per night, everything on top and you are simply being overcharged.
