4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We thought the place to be very good but in addition the location from the city centre and the bus service was a consideration also. Much new build we evidenced and this may be detrimental to guest future opinion.

Honestly always pays

Great, love Edinburgh Great hotel and staff City centre is only ten minutes in a taxi or fifteen by bus, it was a nice day so we walked it to princess street. It took about 30 minuets . The only trick there missing is a cooked breakfast, served to you. But don’t let that put you off the breakfast has a good range of food . But the scrambled eggs and sausages I would give a miss.
