Staff very helpful. Amazing size beds, very comfortable.

Carpets in the hallways outside bedrooms were really scruffy, a bit of paintwork needed on bedroom doors but other than that, a lovely hotel.

The location is great!

It is very loud at night, because of drunken people on the road and the windows dont close properly.

- Very good location right on Royal Mile - Nice historical building - Quite spacious rooms - Windows protect well from noise when closed - Excellent breakfast

- Bathroom had been refurbished recently but bathtub had rusty spots already - Service was friendly but not very professional, e.g. used towels were taken away but not replaced by oversight, housekeeping was very slow to correct the mistake

The hotel is located in the old city, means great location and walking distance from all the attractions. Easy to get by car.
