4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The staff were lovely, every person I spoke to was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great, good choice, tables kept tidy. Bed was very comfortable. What I wasn't too keen on was the bathroom, room 114. When the door had been closed for a while and you opened the door, there was a bad smell. Not sure if it came from the toilet or the sink.

This hotel is perfectly situated near the city centre, with it being a 5 minute walk to Calton hill, and 10 minutes to Princes St. The hotel itself is split across both sides of a beautiful peaceful street with virtually no traffic. The room we had was immaculate and exceptionally large, with it's own kitchen facilities, dining table and modern bathroom. The beds were very comfortable, and there was a maid that came in each day. The check in experience took under a minute and the staff were so friendly. Overall, we had a really enjoyable stay in this hotel and would definitely stay here again if we return to Edinburgh.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The hotel was just a short walk away from Waverly and the centre of Edinburgh but was on a quieter side street which was nice for unwinding after a day of exploring. Both check-in and check-out went smoothly and the staff were pleasant on both occasions. The room was cozy, and barring a few spots on the floor was very clean; we assume they were maybe just not as thorough because Hogmanay was just wrapping up and they were quite busy. Cairn is definitely somewhere we would stay again the next time we are in Edinburgh.
