            8.2

            The concept of having a room with microwave, fridge and dishwasher with the freedom to have breakfast in the lounge or do your own in the room is a great idea and does away with the stuffiness of normal hotel rooms The layout of the room as a studio with settees was comfortable and you could sit comfortably watching the TV with a glass of wine

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Beautiful clean and well furnished. great there was a kitchen as my son has autism his eating is a problem,having the kitchen made our stay very easy.

            Not enough info on how to use lift key, TV and telephone no clear instructions/ operation although the staff were happy to help. TV instructions should be displayed by the TV and telephone instructions by the telephone. i had to go down to reception to ask about the telephone as i didn't know i had to turn it on then press 0 ! Not having to look about for instructions that were found eventually on a small card that was not obvious.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Everything! Very modern, spacious and comfortable studio. Well equiped kitchen area Great breakfast included in the rate. Well located in a quiet area but within easy reach of all that Edinburgh has to offer. Would definitely go back and would certainly recommend.

            Nothing

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            modern style rooms and quick check in/check out. Fridge, oven and microwave in room.

            Breakfast room too small and breakfast choice limited for a 4 star hotel. My wife likes to use a bath and only a shower in the room. Hotel a bit distant from princes street. No draft beers at the small bar. Public areas very hot.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            The rooms were spacious, well equipped and comfortable.Free wifi. Friendly staff and easy parking. Convenient for walking into town or a very short taxi ride if preferred. Would definitley stay here again and pay a small premium to do so it was so good.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            I liked the large rooms and how quiet the hotel was at night. I also liked the modern feel it had.

            Not enough space for every one at breakfast

          • Couple
            10.0

            Staff were very friendly and accommodating, even though we arrived before our check in time a room was available to us with no problem. The hotel is tidy and clean (very important). The all you can eat breakfast buffet was fresh and varied. It was great that we could take tea (and danish) out with us as we left the hotel for the day. This hotels location was not far from the centre and we were able to discover more of Edinburgh than we would of had if we had of stayed in the immediate city centre. Good location for families. Would definately stay again!

            Minor issues only. No lock on the bathroom door. The sink being outside the bathroom, sometimes when in use the noise can waken those sleeping. The tv took a while to register that a button was pressed to get the chanel to change. As the breakfast was too good, some residents sat at their table longer meaning that there were less tables for others.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            great atmosphere and I enjoyed complimentary breakfast, gym, laundry availabiltiy and modern comfort

            cant think of any

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Ideal location for city break plus rooms are large spacious & excellently equipped. Family loved it !

            Quite difficult to find. Directions were were not good/not obvious & road work around the hotel made finding the hotel on a one-way system even harder ! Not much room for breakfast in morning when all guests seem to attend together 9.30/10.15 am being the worst !

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Good location, Quiet, Clean, Good rooms, Good friendly helpful staff

            10.0

            Modern and conventional. Great value and food. Service was excellent.

            The option for family rooms, and large glass windows. Would prefer it was tinted.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            location excellent but did find difficult to locate when we arrived by foot. room large and receptionstaff very helpful worth special comment. would stay again .

            minor to positives is the breakfast arrangements of hor dishes etc constrained in small corner and should be reviewed. could be improved as caused queues due to lack of space.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Rooms are amazing, very spacious, only a ten minuet walk to Edinburgh castle, a brilliant location, definitely would stay there again.

            Hotel breakfast seating area was very small, over crowded. Food was very good tho.

          • Couple
            4.2

            The location was fairly central and appeared to be in a safe position

            The money paid for the room did not reflect the lack of tea and coffee making facilities which limited you to ONE cup of each per day, I had to ask for more tea, milk and sugar from the restaurant. The shower was appalling as it kept on turning cold and hot and to overcome this the temperature had to be turned up to remove the chill. The temperature in the room was too hot and could not be altered which made the experience in the room stifling uncomfortable.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            The kitchenette and the spacious room. Also the furniture - plenty of surfaces and a comfy sofa.
