We had a great corner suite, it was like having a large luxury apartment. The breakfast buffet was excellent. Very helpful concierge, we out of his way to get us a booking at a top restaurant on the day. It is a georgeous period building that has been tastfully refitted.

We really enjoyed the location, being train travellers it is relatively easy to get to, close to the station, the airport tram and on the Royal Mile for the key attractions.

Excellent Hotel

Pros: The rooms and the friendly service.
Cons: The hairdryer in the room didn't work and wasn't replaced when asked and no iron/ironing board was in the cupboard as suggested. Simple issues.
Location: Located centrally on the Royal Mile and within walking distance of all major attractions! Fantastic spot to stay.
We had a wonderful experience staying at this hotel. The staff acknowledged our 50th birthday in the best way possible - an upgrade, cupcakes and champagne in our room and a gift of Brownies when we arrived. A wonderful location and well appointed rooms! Thank you for looking after us so well.

Great location and hotel. Only disappointment is that the rooms don’t have fridges - such lovely renovate rooms and so modern but without all of the requirements
