Lovely old fashioned hotel situated at the end of Princes Street. The rooms have been updated but my room lacked air conditioning which on the hottest weekend of the year was sadly missed! The public areas are spacious and traditional. A very nice hotel and I always enjoy staying there.

I found the hotel excellent and the location very good. It is a short stroll to the shopping streets and the Castle. Rooms were clean and good with all the facilities. Very satisfied.

To the price we gave (we only paid the price of one night for three) evrything was splendid. In this hotel you feel the touch of History. I would like to come back under the same circumstances. To the normal price we couldnt afford it (and perhaps dont need all the services)

This is an excellent hotel centrally situated at the castle end of Princes Street. The room was a good size, quiet and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Food was excellent but a little pricey. Would recommend this hotel.

Very comfortable bed and pillows, wonderful view of the castle and Edinburgh in general. The shower/bath arrangement was unnecessarily complicated but worked well once one had got the hang of it. Staff were generally helpful and friendly and the ground floor restaurant (Chisholm's) was surprisingly good and reasonably priced. I enjoyed my stay.

When I stayed here it was Valentine weekend. The concierge was very helpful, finding us a restaurant on Valentine night nothing was too much trouble. The staff in general were all very nice, there was always a good evening or good morning when you passed them in the corridor. The rooms were checked after they had been cleaned to ensure they were up to their high standard. The castle view rooms are amazing! The food in their fine dining restaurant is an absolute experience!
