Lovely old fashioned hotel situated

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.
