    Perfect

    Nice breakfast with good selection, nice spacious room with good equipment.

    We had to go through the multipurpose room to get to our room, that was a little weird. The parking lot is partly very narrow.

  • 7.8
    Very good

    The hotel is very nice, good breakfast

    It's not really in the center but right below the hotel there is a bus stop that takes you to the center

  • 7.8
    Very good

    The whole structure and service. Breakfast was good.

    Relative remoteness from the center. The staff isn't always nice.

    Very good

    The restaurant in the evening was great, great hotel in good location.

    Not very good breakfast, very narrow room although quite comfortable, no mini bar in the room.

  • 8.2
    Great

    Quiet area and clean structure, helpful staff (especially Simon). They help to book trips, taxis etc.. A little bit outside of town but well connected by bus and taxi at only 10pound.

    The breakfast buffet was really poor, no cheese, not worth the money it costs, it's better to save it and have breakfast in the center

  • 7.8
    Very good

    It's easy to reach Edinburgh. The parking at the Edinburgh station is better but costs £8 per day

    Perfect

    Very nice facility outside the center of Edinburgh, comfortable double room with single beds and bathroom with new and spacious bathtub. Excellent breakfast and fine restaurant. Carpets are everywhere but they are clean. Friendly and helpful reception staff

    The only drawback is the price of £422 for two nights with half board. Not cheap at all.

  • 10.0
    Perfect

    Everything, but you have to go by car. Excellent views of the city. They gave us one of the best rooms. Very complete breakfast. Exquisite attention.

    Romms are comfortable and clean

    There is no elevator the location is very far from the downtown and tourist sites.

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    A little far away from the centre, it is situated in a very good residential area of the city. By bus from the hotel to the center is 20 minutes or by car, about 15. The room is very clean, spacious with good views. A classy hotel. Very good breakfast.

  • 7.8
    Very good

    Above all the waiter who attended us, Diosdado, was very attentive and informed us of everything we need. The rest of the hotel staff is great. The hotel is very nice and well communicated although it is a little far away from downtown.

    Beds. They should make them a little better.

  • 8.2
    Great

    The style of the 19th century building, the wide and stately corridors and their views. From its terrace you can see Edinburgh Castle and we could see the New Year's fireworks. Very helpful and friendly staff.

    The charm of the antiquities sometimes turns into a little discomfort. There was no elevator and the standard rooms were a bit small. Also, as it is located far away from the center, it was expensive to go to the center on New Year's Eve.

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    A relatively cheap hotel in Edinburgh but the rooms were also small. All amenities were present and the beds were good. Good parking space. Restaurant was good.
