    Great location and magnificent views of the castle from my room! Very easy to find and access to trains and buses. Staff very friendly and had great advice for exploring Edinburgh in two days.

    My wife and enjoyed the the friendly and informative approach of the staff who went that extra bit to see that we had a good overnight stay so much so that we would use the hotel again. We must also compliment your chef on our scottish breakfast, the quality and the presentation of the food was second to none and also pass our thanks to the gentleman who served our breakfast he was great.

    There were bits of the hotel which needed a bit upgrading

    We were in an attic room which was lovely with a round window overlooking the castle - a perfect view. Staff were so friendly.

  • Older travelers

    Location and view. Restaurant was good too.

    The rooms are a bit tired, but not a problem, especially with the location and view

    Great location! Staff was very nice, and always there to answer and questions.

    Defiantly under renovations, seems like a transistion time for them. Might be better to go back in a year when they are finished the external work.

  • Single

    Very friendly and helpful staff, both at Reception and in restaurant. Location couldn't be bettered.

    My room and en-suite need updating, also the restaurant , corridors, etc. Lift gates did not open fully - difficult to get luggage in and out.

  • Older travelers

    the staff we excellent and very informed on the local area and if they didn't know did their utmost to find out.superb location for all local attractions as well as the pubs,restaurants and shops.

    Old beautiful building with a comfortable room with beautiful castle view. Good location in the center and easy to reach by airport bus. Tasty, but quite heavy, breakfast with castle views.

    Elevator was not working, but fortunately they had other elevator for the staff in back of the hotel which could be used. Floors had whole floor carpeting and squeaked a lot and rooms were not soundproof. There was no safe deposit box in the room.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    One of our three rooms (a suite) had excellent view of the castle. Dinner was very good. Excellent location.

    Dusting and vacuuming in the rooms was poor. The lift was tiny. Breakfast took a long time to serve.

  • Family with children

    I like Michael who is the one who serves the breakfast, he is wonderful guy, makes you feel as if you are in 7 stars hotel. All the staff are wonderful and helpful, the young lady who greeted us by name once we stepped in the hotel to cleaning staff, all are wonderful really

    Not more really, but refrigerator and safe box might be considered. Also, I requested suite that looks at the castle, but they did not inform me that a scaffolding is hanging out side the windows. But those are not complaints those are comments really

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The view of the castle from the bedroom, even though there was scaffolding outside the window it did not block the view. Beds were very comfy, bathroom was clean and modern and the breakfast was excellent.

    The lift, but they were in the process of installing a new one.

  • Group of friends

    Reception staff very friendly and helpfull, excellent location. Bed very comfortable.

    Had to wait thirty five minutes for breakfast, only one person serving.

    Location

    No bathrobes Very low water pressure for shower skylight window shutter broken Small basic executive suite? Expensive basic room

  • Single
    6.2

    Everything in the hotel is very narrow (passages, elevator etc.) which doesn't make it easy if you're travelling with big luggage. Castle views room are noisy (busy street) and wall insulation between rooms poor (I could hear squeaking floors from next door's neighbour). Bathrooms cry for refurbishment unless you like the old school look.

    Friendly staff great position , lovely bed linen

    Trains can be heard till late at night- not too bad noisy fan in bathroom
