Not 4 star

Staff at this hotel were excellent, you really can't get any better. It has a 4 star rating which is probably because of the pool / gym. The rooms and corridors are tired and need updating plus the pillows are horrid. Such a shame because they have great staff in a great location but the overall feel of the hotel just doesn't cut it.

best Scotish trip yet

I absolutely loved this hotel it was in the best location, it was really clean and the room was so comfy i would definately recommend and stay here again. i love Edinburgh its one of the best cities i have ever been to. being a single woman i felt comfrtable to go everywhere by myself. Loved it...thanks to all the staff. The only critisism i could say is the initial point of entry is a bit clinical and i didn't feel very warmly welcomed...no offer to help with my bags which was dissapointing as i was very tired and wanted to be looked after.

Great hotel, close to everything!

A great hotel that close to the Castle, the hop-on hop-off bus, and the AirLink airport bus. Just make sure your window closes all the way - ours did not and we were woken at 1am, 2am and again at around 4am due to the noisy drunks outside (it was a Friday night). Otherwise a pleasant stay in a nice hotel.
