Location was far from a lot of things, but also near a side of town I hadn't yet seen. The steak restaurant next door was also really nice. The rest was as nice as almost any hotel, getting what you paid for. For some reason...More

Dear Sam R,
Thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay in Edinburgh and thank you for taking the time to leave a feedback. I am sorry to hear that the room we had allocated for you fell short of your expectations. If you...More
Service very good. Attentive helpful staff. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Breakfast plentiful and in the price. Also good quality. Like all hotels my only down is the disgraceful increase in prices when an international rugby weekend.
We stayed here for a day, first impressions were good, apart from the bar area being very cold. Definitely wasn’t good considering it was -2 Celsius the day we stayed. The room was very spacious, bathroom was clean and was quite different to most, it...More
Lovely hotel, very friendly staff... a short walk away from the attractions. Could do better for breakfast (veggies only have beans, scrambled eggs with veg sausages on request). The hotel is good value for money.
We stayed here for a short break and found the location to be brilliant. It is right at the end of the tram line from the Airport and directly opposite a great pub called the J K Rowling for January, but usually the Conan Doyle....More
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
