Very Pleasant

by ReturntoDublin on 27 Jan 2017 (Business Traveller)

Stayed here for one night on 19 January. Room was cold, but when I plugged in the convection heater, it was fine. Bed not great - mattress past its prime. Linen clean and fresh. Bathroom clean. Room was quiet. Breakfast was very expensive. Nice swimming pool in basement. Changing rooms and shower areas were clean. Very convenient to Scottish Parliament. Check in and out were efficient and fast. Friendly receptionist, Alice, gave me a good recommendation for a local restaurant.

Great stay

We arrived at 11.45 hoping to leave our luggage but our room was ready and we were able to check in, a great first impression. Room 103 good size no view overlooking car park and recycling bins so expected a disturbed sleep. Slept like a log in king size bed which was two singles zipped together. Room also had two comfy armchairs and coffee table as well as work desk and chair. Tea and coffee tray had nice selection of teas and fresh milk could be requested from reception. Located at bottom end ...

Excellent Stay!

by Margaret H on 24 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

We booked this hotel for a weekend trip to the Christmas markets as it was reasonably priced, had good reviews and was fairly central and were not disappointed.

What a Fabulous Hotel

by 22stevieg2015 on 22 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

Stopped here for the last 2 days with friends during a weekend away and can safely say this was a marvellous place to have stayed. From the moment we walked through the door until we picked up our cases this evening the staff and facilities were wonderful. The concierge, Jakub was exceptional in his knowledge and advice of where to go and eat and places to visit in Edinburgh. We loved the breakfast both days and would recommend the scrambled eggs. The rooms were very clean and spacious and could...

Another very nice stay

by Chris G on 22 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

We have stayed here many times and it doesn't seem to lose the quality. We took advantage of a very good offer and upgraded to a Feature room which was very comfortable. Room 510 was for my taste too near the lifts etc so we did hear frequent at time loud "conversations" of other guests going out or returning but otherwise the room was great. Only had breakfast at the hotel bit was once again superb. Service was brilliant and caring and a credit to the company. My only other gripe was th...
