A friendly stay

Very comfortable, clean hotel in great location. from the minute we arrived the staff were friendly and very helpful . room was clean and very comfortable. christmas party season so the main restaurant and bar were off limits to paying guests however they did provide facilities elsewhere in the hotel but we did not use as dined out. room was very quiet overnight. price is good for edinburgh city centre hotel but had to pay extra for parking. breakfast was good with the exception of hard boiled poached egg, a pet hate! would stay again.

Winter break

Narrow corridors but biggish rooms and generous bathrooms. well-used city centre hotel, now a little scruffy in the finish. first impressions very good, closer inspection reveals cost-cutting.
beds excellent although rooms adjacent to street noisy -the grassmarket is a buzzy all-night place. think rome!
very good breakfast with good service although portions notably smaller than last year. parking closeby expensive or a very long walk. good for quirky shopping but if its princes st and george st you want, stay closer.
