Lovely place to stay
Really lovely place to stay at and the bed is nice an comfy. Only main problem is how you can hear the tv or people talking in the neighbouring rooms. It is also pretty noisy in the morning we heard loud music and doors just being flung open, which was probably due to inconsiderate guests but just a warning for light sleepers.

Beautiful room and lovely, approachable staff!
I stayed here with my best friend on Tuesday night. The purpose of our trip was to visit the Edinburgh Christmas Markets! We arrived at 11:30am and were just expecting to drop off our bags and then come back for check-in time at 3. Much to our surprise, our room W as ready and waiting for us! And WOW, what a beautiful room! We throughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again (and recommending to everyone!)

Comfortable, well maintained hotel - recommended.
Excellent accommodation, helpful and friendly staff and good food. Noise from adjacent room once during my stay, and bar not open late - was closed before 11pm when I walked up for a night-cap. Neither of these were serious or disruptive enough to reduce my overall score.

This will be my hotel of choice again when I next visit Edinburgh. Staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. Rooms were clean, comfortable and the interior design was as good as it gets. Would definitely recommend.
