Booked months in advance for Xmas Day dinner for a special Xmas away in Edinburgh. Arrived 10 mins early and told our table wasn't ready and to come back later. Went to Hotel foyer that looked like McDonalds merged with airport departure lounge. Disgusting atmosphere....More

Don't go! They can't cope. It was awful from start to finish.no pre dinner drink offered. Spilt an entire tray of drinks over my mother. Started ridiculously small. Main course lacking in decent vegetables

We stayed at the hotel which is a good choice and went here for breakfast. Despite the nice interior and the nice panorama views of the castle we were disappointed. Breakfast was descent but nothing special and very overpriced!

This was the main reason for booking this hotel - were taking in the Tattoo and looking forward to dining here to see the fireworks on the following evening. To rub salt into the wound they serve breakfast there !!

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
