Lovely spot
Very nice staff, lovely room. Room was a little worn in (peeling paint on ceiling) but that adds to the charm. Close to shops and cafes. Short drive to old town. No on site laundry despite notice in room that says there is. Laundromat within walking distance. Food is okay.

An historic visit to Edinburgh
Extremely helpful staff. Reception, Housekeeping, Barstaff, and breakfast waiting staff especially very helpful Marcia were wonderful, kind and responding to all our requests by going the extra mile. The hotel decor however, is a little in need of TLC and new carpets most definitely. Breakfast food is okay but needs modernising and more healthy options especially for those with extra dietary needs. Great views from bedrooms, with comfortable beds, and superbly clean.

Average stay
Stayed over night. Seemed staff were very under staffed but still helpful. Felt more staff were needed. Room was fine, very warm, would benefit having a fan in rooms. Could be doing with a little upgrade as carpets a bit worn. Food was nice, lovely bar area. Would stay again if updated

4/10 Fair

Poorly managed .... Wish we hadn't booked
Some staff tried their best to sort issues .... others showed lack of interest and / or ability to help. Overall, the hotel lacks effective management, and senior management team were not on site over the weekend! Decor and furnishings very tired .... especially thread-bare carpets. General cleanliness and attention to detail very poor. Ridiculously high pricing of drink and food for such a poor hotel ... £12.60 for a large glass of Chardonnay! I think everyone would rightfully expect far more when paying £230 a night!

Just an overpriced bed for the night really
1. Not great accommodation, pretty dated in certain areas. 2. Walls paper thin could hear general chatter outside our room. 3. Shower pressure was atrocious. 4. Fridge in room didn’t work 5. Overpriced but I guess that’s what you get during the festival
