    I loved this hotel, the room was beautiful and super clean, the bed was very comfy, and breakfast was delicious. I took in a movie in the newly renovated picture house and that was such a cool experience. Will absolutely stay there again

    Large rooms with interesting layouts. Great location in downtown Edinburgh. Very helpful concierge. No warning of renovations which meant no hotel bar. Furnishings getting a bit threadbare. Safe in one room I stayed in was not even big enough for an i-pad.

    The property is beautiful and old. It is centrally located. The only issue we experienced was our room was too warm with little way to cool it down. Other than that, it was a gorgeous room, lots of space, super comfy bed and so close to all the spots we wanted to visit (and we could walk to everything).

    Great hotel...but old

    Our stay was a little uncomfortable since it was during a heat wave in Scotland at the time and it was really hot and our room (which was an executive suite) didn't have any air conditioning. And when we tried to open the windows some of the panels started breaking on us. Some parts of the room where very modern (shower, main room, etc) but some parts you could tell were just really old.
