We stayed here for 2 nights with out 1 year old in April.. Staff provided us the largest room in the corner of the hotel, very spacious, clean. The room also had an extra guest room with bed and TV.
Staff were very helpful as well on anything we requested.

The location was great.. 15min walk from the castle, Royal mile or 5 min taxi ride from the station.
Look for offers on the site and we got lucky with free breakfast for a great room rate. Breakfast was standard continental, served fresh and hot - perfect way to start the day before exploring Edinburgh..

The good things about this hotel are the central location. The rooms are very good.

The rest of the hotel including the bar and "restaurant" are very small and odd. The staff seemed to share reception and bar/restaurant duties which lead to relatively long delays for service. There was no lunch food service.

The hotel has a good room and a good location , can't complain as it's these things that are important.

a very 'brisk' receptionist soon saw us to our rooms, we had booked two double rooms, ours were both on the ground floor so very easy to access.both rooms were very comfy, clean and fresh, with all usual facilities.only limited parking at the hotel, but hotel is situated close to everything really.

Room Tip: Don't get 104, it's below street level so view is of a wall looking skywards to the pavement...

Stayed with a friend on a one night theatre break. The reception staff were lovely, decor fresh and pleasing. The room and bathroom were really clean, well decorated and comfortable.
The biggest let down was the main course at dinner. The salmon steak was bony, meagre and grossly over cooked. The dinner menu is not expensive at all, but I'd honestly rather pay another fiver for a proper fillet of salmon. The deep fried Brie was fine and the puddings delicious. Service friendly but a bit over stretched. Breakfast fine but verging on the chaotic!! Stay here, enjoy the lovely rooms, but eat out!

Built in an old hospital, this updated hotel is a great value in a wonderful location close to restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing opportunities.
