The Frederick House hotel is very clean, with nice modern rooms and bathrooms. The central location is perfect for a city centre break as very close to bars and restaurants. Waverley train station is a ten minute walk! Breakfast is with a voucher to a cafe across the road called The Rabble which was also excellent.

THe room was fantastic, large and airy, with high ceilings in a true georgian style. Bath and shower were lovely and clean and the shower was hot and powerful. Staff were great and although there was no catering on site, the hotel has an arrangement with a partner across the road - Rabble - again a great place for a snack or a drink
