Warm welcome both in temperature and staff.The room was clean and well appointed.The shower was good and the bed and linen clean and comforatble

The room was far too hot and when i opened the window it was terribly noisy .I used the fan however it just added to the noise .Sadly I didnt enjoy a good nights sleep but couldnt work out why it was so hot as the radiator in the room was off and the wondow was open when I arrived.

Awesome hotel with a view of the castle. Free internet is appreciated, too!

The only negative thing was that we had to wait until 3pm to check in, our room wasn't ready

Room was lovely and in an excellent location. Was very impressed as we have stayed in hotels twice the price in Edinburgh and were disappointed. Would definitely stay here again.

Breakfast was cold not impressed at all. We went for breakfast at 0830 hours in the morning so there was no need for it to be like that. A continental breakfast would probably have been better like the HI express do.
