    I was disappointed that there were no mini fridge in the room. Had to keep going to the bar to get glass with ice. The eggs at breakfast were not good at all! Maybe adding different cereal would be nice! The staff was very friendly and very helpful! 5 stars fir them. The rooms were clean.

    Great staff quick check in. Food was good with a good variety of breakfast food. Location was perfect for bus service to city center and attractions.

  • 6.0.Good

    We had booked a "family" room and were quite suprised by how small the room actually was. I know that European rooms are smaller than North America, but for a room that was supposed to fit 4 people, we barely had room for our luggage which we had to keep piled in front of the door once the couch was pulled out into a bed. There was also no drawers or anything to keep our clothes in. The location was good for bus service though and the room was clean.

    Great stay!

    Really enjoyed my stay... staff was more than accommodating. Hotel was clean and close to everything. Just down the cobblestone path is Teuchters Landing... one of the best pubs in Edinburgh...

    Nicely renovated property. Loved the location, away from the busy centre of Edinburgh yet easily accessible by bus. Breakfasts were good. Lots of restaurants nearby too. Overall a very pleasant stay.
