The hotel was in a fantastic location, shops to the right and and 2 mins walk from Waverley station. The staff were always helpful but my one complaint was that the heat in the room when I arrived had to open a window as the air con didn't cool it down.

Very difficult to move inside the hotel with baby and a buggy, because there are so many strair until you get to the lift. Our room was non specious, there was no room for baby moving around. Infant cot was so hard (there was no mattress), that we couldn't keep our baby there at all and he had for a blanket just a quilt cover (an adult size). This hotel is okay, when you don't travel with your kids. Anyhow the rooms very tidy, stuff was kind and location couldn't get any better.

Staff were polite and friendly and the breakfast was great. The bar area was also good and both had great views and atmosphere. The location is perfect for arriving from airport airlink as well as all you want to do in Edinburgh. Room was nice and a good size and I would definitely choose to stay here again.

We were given a dingy internal room with no natural light, bathroom door did not close, mattress old and thin, decor needing a spruce up. You got to the room along narrow corridors, making it feel like the servants quarters. Overall it was crap for £200/night. It was festival time so rooms were scarce, but we should have been warned about the room and offered a discount. Breakfast was good, and in a lovely room.

Apart from the long climb up stairs to reception with luggage, the welcome from reception (from a Hungarian Lass!) made up for the oncoming physical heart attack. The room allocated was typically British, in that it was of the least space possible to comply with a hotel room without having any space! The facilities were good, and the hotel was in the centre of the city. The breakfast supplied was more than satisfactory, and staff were courteous, apart from the fact that I couldn't pay cash (a credit card was the only acceptable 'legal tender')for a "nightcap" at the bar. Location, cleanliness and breaky were a good plus.

Hotel in good location, within 5 min. walk from station and easy to walk to all touristy attractions. Plenty of restaurants and pubs nearby as well as many shops. Clean with reasonable sized room and bathroom. Staff friendly. Only downside a little noisy as room was on 1st floor level nr a level crossing.
