Nice quiet location, we were the only people in the hotel but still received the same service as if the hotel was full. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a nice comfortable stay in Edinburgh

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I understand that COVID has made things difficult but after expressing the need to sanitise our room it was disappointing to find thick dust all around the bed . Hotel is not manned and I found this uncomfortable also no milk left in room and did not feel like phoning at 8 o’clock at night to ask for some . Also the windows did not open and we could not get any fresh air in and they were streaming with water the next day.

Travelled with family
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We had minor issues with the room and recurring minor issues with housekeeping but reception was unmanned, the sign on reception said closed from 10.00 pm to 08.00 but was closed 95% of the time, there was no-one there to raise the issues with. There was a number for emergencies but this was an emergency, just disappointing.

Comfortable room
Beautiful rooms and really helpful receptionist. But let itself down on small things like no remote for TV and a poor choice of breakfast.
