Hi Shaun, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your feedback, we really appreciate it. Glad to see overall you had a great stay! Sadly you are correct, we do not have a gym. We are working on it and have begun to try to add alternatives. We do have some some small weights, yoga mat's, resistance bands and even some tennis rackets to enjoy when summer finally begins. Hopefully by the next time you join us we'll have added to it. Take care and we hope to welcome you again in the future. Kind Regards, Craig

Excellent inner city location was perfect for us. Very well designed and modern room. The only negative for us was lack of air conditioning and fresh air flow. It became very stuffy very quickly and the small electric fan did not help much.

Great location, just down from the royal mile, so it was super easy to walk to everything. The breakfast was okay, but we preferred to venture out and find different breakfast locations as an alternative. The rooms were HOT, so much so that even in the middle of winter we had to open the windows and leave them open to cool the room down. Staff were really helpful and they were able to securely store our luggage while we went away on a two-day tour up to the highlands, which was very convenient. Overall, it was a pretty good place to stay.

30 second walk to the Royal Mile

Pros: Location, cleanliness, knowledgeable and friendly staff always happy to help.
Location: Excellent location with the Royal Mile less than 30 seconds walk.
Excellent location with the Royal Mile at your doorstep. Very helpful staff and clean rooms. Only a few minutes walk to the castle at the top of the Mile.

hot and stuffy

Pros: it was clean and convenient.
Cons: proper air conditioning.
The hotel was fine except that our window opened onto an internal courtyard or something, with no outside air. It was very hot and stuffy and the air conditioning unit apparently isn't an aircon it just cools the air, but it didn't have any effect at all so the room was unbearably hot. Additionally, one night we were kept awake until midnight because someone had their TV blaring in another room and it echoed all around this open space. Although the window open didn't really cool the room it was better than having it closed, but then with it open we had the noise to deal with.
