Nice people, very helpful. Price was fair and breakfast was very good.

The hotel needs to be ´´spruced up´´.

Excellent price/quality factor.

Got an icy room, certainly due to a last minute swap This was however a single case.

Hotel is very close to Haymarket Railway Station (not evident from description - assume that's for Waverley)

Window latches broken

November 2007

Very good value indeed for the centre of Edinburgh. Large, clean, room. Excellent DIY breakfast (including cooked food).

The hotel is currently next to a large building site where work starts at 7.30-8am, and this looks like continuing for some months yet. This is fine if you're on that side of the hotel and on business during the week, but might not be appreciated by visiting tourists!
