    Great location of hotel and for that reason I would possibly stay again. Excellent location for seeing a show at the Playhouse. But the hotel rooms were ‘average’ at best and breakfast looked unappetizing and we didn’t have it. Nice reception and staff.

    mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
    found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
