                    The hotel location was perfect for getting around the city. Right on the royal mile youa re within walking distance of everything the city has to offer. The pool and gym were a great addition to the hotel.

                    Although the room was spacious there was a complete lack of storage. There was only storage in the wardrobe. Room for some hanging but there were not enough hangers for 2 people. The wardrobe had a small shelf unit at the bottom which was awkward and inconvenient.We had no bedside locker/drawers, it was only a unit. A drawer at the main dresser and drawers in the bedsite units is greatly needed! The sauna's in both the male and female changing rooms were not hot at all. And one of the days the swimming pool was very cold as cold water was being pumped into it.

                    Location location location close to everything we needed The hotel looked lovely from outside, the room was an upgrade to-business class which was just right. Gym fab.

                    A staff member let them self into our room asking if we had ordered tea coffe hubby naked and I was in the bath and it was actually quite frightening . When I approached staff at reception they were not interested. They said they would speak to person. They didn't ask any questions about who came in so I'm sure they just never bothered!! We had not ordered tea or coffee and yes we should have chained the door. At bar staff poured my husbands drink first. Barmaid did not ask if we wanted nuts but the person before us had. Maybe our face didn't fit? Pool freezing which was such a shame. Men's sauna not working.

                    The rooms were nice and beds really comfy. The staff on reception were friendly and helpful.

                    The breakfasts were very disappointing - I ordered poached eggs which were really not good at all (overdone, cold) and they lost my friend's order altogether. One of the waitresses was also quite rude to us and the coffee was horrible. Really not worth the price at all.

                    Reception pleasant, room fair dirty socks found at bottom of bed upon arrival ! Previous guests !! Not good sign, spa and pool very poor standard requiring a major upgrade, the location is fab some things in this hotel let it down badly, a 3 star would be my rating for it !!

                    Good quality room and comfort

                    Poor lighting in room. Restaurant staff on one occasion cleared table whilst we had gone to buffet to get meal, empty table on return !

                    Good location, friendly staff

                    Brown carpets made the hotel look dated

                    the hotel's overall look & feel really helped us feel comfortable & enjoy the time spent at the hotel.

                    the lifts are way too small & got very crowded

                    The location was perfect being on the Royal Mile, the staff were friendly and the room looked after very well during our short stay.

                    There is nothing to be concerned about, the price was high but as expected. I was disappointed not to get a better deal for booking early.

                    I liked the central location, easy access to all the pubs, restaurants and good shopping on Princes Street and George Street. The beds were very comfy and the rooms were very clean.

                    While overall the hotel was nice we were disappointed at the view from our window. I appreciate that all rooms can't have wonderful views, but to get a room where the view is to look out onto a filty room top was very disappointing - it's the kind of thing that would put me off booking the hotel again.

                    Close to all Edinburgh attractions and shopping

                    Room was next to backpackers bar and therefore quite noisy

                    Excellent location, helpful and friendly staff and high standard of rooms.

                    A pity that the dining room has to be in the basement and is thus has little natural light.
