The hotel was close to most of the main attractions which was very handy. The rooms were nice and clean. There was a weird noise which might have been one of the pipes so not the best if you want the window open and you are a light sleeper. The breakfast was very good with plenty of gluten free options. The guide as to what products had what allergens were nicely displayed at the entrance to the buffet area.

Lovely friendly helpful staff. Rooms clean and bed amazingly comfortable. Irons and kettles tea coffee in every room. It’s the little things like a sign to say don’t worry if you have forgotten toiletries- have them on us. Scottish Soap Company shower gel and hand wash. Breakfast was good. I also noticed dogs staying which is great if you need somewhere to bring them. I will definitely be back on my next stay in Edinburgh.

Very friendly staff & effortless check in. Fairly Modern hotel. Rooms were clean and spacious. Breakfast was top notch with a good variety of cereals, fruit and traditional breakfast. This hotel is very well located in the Old Town & 10 mins from Princes street. Recommend highly.

Good location in the Old Town. Conveniently positioned near all the activities we did. Not too sure about the breakfast which is simple, but that is to be expected. No real toiletries except for soap and toilet roll. There are no safes or fridges in the room.
