This was an overnight treat for a friends 50th birthday. The hotel is in a great location just off the Royal Mile at the castle end. You are welcomed at the door by helpful and nattily styled staff in Missoni designed kilts. Coming into reception and the main bar it does not look 5 star. Security is quite good as you cannot access the lift without your room key. The corridors are quite warren like. The room did not have a view but was immensely comfortable. This was a twin,it was not large but stylishly designed. The beds and linen gave a great nights sleep. The nespresso machine was a step up from a kettle . The bathroom was one of the highlights,a double shower with the facility to sit. The Missoni toilettries and Missoni bathrobes.
The bar gets busy of an evening and serves good cocktails. In the restaurant we were served an excellent meal by attentive waiting staff. The breakfast also did not disappoint although when we came down for breakfast we did have to wait as the restaurant was full. However an area was set aside to wait where you coulsd help yourself to tea/coffe and muffins.After a short wait we were shown to our table. The buffet was extensive and well stocked and a hot breakfast order was taken and cooked freshly in the kitchen. I would call this hotel a 4 1/2 *rather than a 5* but would recommend.
