Received help carrying bag upstairs. Room pleasant but a little cramped. Room serviced each day - good. Bathroom: shower and toilet clean. However, brown circle around plug hole in basin was mould - yuk and walls retained splatters from previous guests. Greater cleaning required. Hotel has restaurant downstairs and cooking odours waft through to guestrooms. Very long walk from station. Local bus runs nearby but not designed to take luggage.

Nice comfortable room, friendly staff and good location close to pubs, restaurants, shops and public transport. The only downside was that the window could not be opened so room became a little stuffy at times.

Nice and quiet

Pros: Comfort and quietness
Location: Had a20 minute walk to the Edinburgh attractions, but buses were just around the corner if required. Then you were in the heart of old Edinburgh.
we received a lovely welcome by the staff. A beautiful room over looking the garden. The breakfasts were delicious. It's a fair way out of centre of Edinburgh, but we love walking so did not mind the 20 minutes each day. You get to see more. We did not have a car, but the parking was tight. Over all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to come back.
