          The room was spacious and kept clean and tidy.

          7.4

          I liked the location (next to the City centre and the Edinburgh International Congress Centre.

          Cleanliness of the room was not extraordinary (no rechange towels one day of my stay, water glass not changed).

        • Couple
          7.8

          Comfortable clean room, Spa was lovely, wide selection of food at breakfast.

          It was a clean ,the staff were very friendly and close to all the ammenitys

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The hotel was very central close to all the places to visit to make it an excellent base. The bus stops close to the hotel gave a good service to Princes Street with its shopping, pubs, gallaries etc. Also to Holyrood Palace and to Royal Yacht Britannia. The staff were very helpful but the resturant for breakfast was very crowded on our last day due to it being a bank holiday weekend with coach parties.

          The hotel being near the castle meant that if you wanted to walk to Princes Street it was a step climb back up or not easy for the less able. Also could have done with an extra pillow.

          very comfortable warm friendly nice location

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          The staff went out of their way to help us get settled in and the room was comfortable and well worth the discounted deal we got. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to be in close proximity to the shops and sights, but enough out of the way to avoid city noise.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          The location and convienience to the city centre was ideal as we were using public transport to get around.

          The pool facilities looked inviting although rather on the small size we did not use the pool as it was full on both occasions we would have liked to use it.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          It was very convenient to the castle, Princes Street etc.

          Having to pay £10 on exit each time from the car park and not sure when you returned if you would able to get parked again

          Our room was very stylish & clean. The pool & spa area were also clean & well kept. Staff very friendly & helpful at all times.

          Staff very helpful and all parts of the hotel were spotlessly clean. The location was excellent. The pool, jacuzzi, steam and sauna were very relaxing with reasonable opening times.

          8.2

          The breakfast was very good with lots of variety, something for everyone. The pool was also a nice feature to have - although very small there is a jacuzzi also.

          The building site opposite wasn't the best view! But this was silent whilst in the room and isn't a problem. You could

          The staff were very helpful and the facilities (swimming pool and gym), internet access was good

          The toilet being seperate to the hand basin and shower. Also the extracter fan was not working in the shower, so the room got very hot while taking a shower.

          good hotel , rooms clean and big , the pool facilities were clean , however the pool was a bit too small and the turkish bath was a bit too basic . But there were not a lot of guests , so was ok
