Guest reviews

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Good location at the city center, very atmospheric to feel the Victorian epoch of the Edinburgh.

    Some rooms are at the basement of the building. They have only one small window, although this reduces noise from the busy street.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Hotel was very well-placed for sightseeing and shopping. Room was beautiful withhigh ceilings and comfortable furniture. Staff were friendly and helpful.

    Room was very hot when we arrived. As windows did not open we had to turn off the radiator and go out for a walk till it cooled down!

  • Single
    9.2

    I lived in a single room on the 3rd floor. The view from the window was amazing. Hotell staff was polite and helped me with any problems I had. Room was warm enough and very cute. Good value for money.

    in the end of the trip I was quite tired to get to my room with no lift. The absence of lift I think is the only disadvatage.

  • Single
    6.6

    The room was spacious, bathroom was clean and spacious,

    No room service, the bar wasn't open, phone in my room was broken but the receptionist fixed this very quickly.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    The room was big, the staff was friendly.

    The hotel needs very serious refurbishment.

  • Single
    7.4

    It was quite good town hotel, maybe outside (entry) should be little bit more interesting (colours, flags, spots...). And our room (no.12) were very down sholud have some pictures and folwers - plastic (for dark room it could be more happy)...

    the same

  • Couple
    5.0

    The central location was good and the breakfast was good and the staff were friendly

    There was a casino across the road open until 6 in the morning,and the noise from outside it where people went out to smoke groups of 10 to 20 at a time made it impossible to get any sleep.

  • Couple
    8.2

    Very good location, also with bus stops outside the hotel to get further afield, friendly&helpful staff, good breakfast selection

    We were on the 5th floor, & there was no lift!

  • Couple
    5.0

    the location was very good and the scottish lad who was in charge of the breakfast was very helpful

    the car parking was very small and it could easily be full if you check in late, my wife had a broken leg and as such was on crutches / wheelchair and the hotel is "not disabled friendly". We were in the lowest floor that you entered from the car park and the room was very dated / tatty.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    First room allocated was horrible.Very tired decor and quite shabby in some areas

  • Family with children
    6.6

    We enjoyed the size of rooms plenty of space.

    Outside early hours of the morning we woke up to noise from front street, people shouting two nights running.You could possibly get tripple glazing to help minimise problem.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Convenient to city sights, parking facilities

    Romm carpets were dirty

  • Family with children
    9.6

    It's location and Staff. The staffs are very efficient & cooperative though less in number but doesn't matter. They manage with their skill and experience. I liked this hotel.

    In breakfast egg and cooked food item shall be added
