Bit disappointed

by Abzquine_13 on 03 Dec 2016 (Solo Traveller)

Lovely street, lovely building,loveky staff but my room was not nice at all. Very claustrophobic as it had no proper window just a very high skylight velux. No TV or hairdryer in room and I couldn't find anyone to request latter at around 8.00 pm. Breakfast was good and varied but I wouldn't return or recommend to friends. My room definitely spoiled this stay and was not worth the £67 I paid. Website photos and reviews I read were very misleading in my case.

Overnight stop in Edinburgh

by Jan S on 27 Nov 2016 (Family Traveller)

We stayed at The Halcyon last night. It was close to The Playhouse Theatre where we were seeing a show. It was fine for a one night stay. We were in room one which is a family room. My mum is disabled and this room was on the ground floor. Nice view onto back garden. The room was clean and warm. Decor could do with a freshen up though. We did have a bit of difficulty getting mum's wheelchair into the hotel as there are a few steps. A ramp would have made all the difference. I would have like...

Weekend in Edinburgh

by Yasmina R on 23 Nov 2016 (Friends Traveller)

the hotel is ok for a few nights, but not for people who normally go to normal hotels. this one is a mix of B&B and hotel. it is quite old with dirty carpet, water from shower is not existing - impossible to wash long hairs :-). The service is not there, they would ask you if you want the room to be done.....but hey, it is not a pricey hotel so you get what you pay for

brief stay

by cd m on 17 Oct 2016 (Family Traveller)

we were booked for one night only by our travel agent, just needed a place to sleep before traveling on. We arrived late and another guest let us in the front door. However at that point there was no reception desk or phone and the doors were closed. We puzzled over this for a while and when another family came in, they showed us the buzzer outside that would alert the owner to our presence. Matthew came from his room and greeted us warmly. We did have to walk up but that was not a problem...

Nice stay!

by WISHerAnne on 09 Oct 2016 (Family Traveller)

We enjoyed our stay here, even with the walk up. We knew when we booked that we had the top floor, so no surprise there. We chose the Halcyon because we wanted character; not a modern, glitzy hotel. We stayed for three days and had two rooms. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. We had no problem with noise. The bathroom amenities included air freshener, shampoo packets, pump hand lotion, and soap bars. The bathroom shower was interesting to us Americans, but worked just fine (n...
