Lovely stay, great location for us
I recently stayed here for a couple of nights with my partner and have to say the overall stay was fantastic. The room was spacious, clean and the bed was comfortable. Parking around the area was tough but the hotel did have 5 spaces at the rear which aren't able to be reserved, located through a garage door which on this occasion had two lovely drunks acting as bouncers to the spaces, they weren't any bother once they'd moved out the way! Location was perfect for us as we were heading to the Christmas Market which was like a 15 minute walk away which was nice. The only real issue we came across was that if you wanted to lie in past say 9 AM then good luck, the cleaners began hoovering from 8ish onwards, but that wouldn't deter us from shopping here again if we come back to Edinburgh.

Not a 4 star!!
Not a 4 star like stated more like a 2 star. Appalling breakfast for the price.

Comfortable hotel, great location
A nice traditional building. Comfortable rooms, nice beds, nice bathrooms, quiet. Great location - less than 5 minutes walking from York place (the last stop of the tram from the airpot), 10 minutes walking from downtown and the train station, bus stop also less than 5 minutes away. Service and cleanliness could be better - for all the 3 days the carpet in my room didn't look clean even once, toiletries weren't replaced at all, the only plastic cup in the bathroom was unopened, used and dirty. Apart from that everything was OK. Just have in mind there are no elevators and you need to climb high floors and old stairs, which might be a problem for someone with more luggage.
