Excellent situation for Edinburgh’s West End, the airport bus and Haymarket station. A very friendly welcome set the tone for a very pleasant stay. Some of the fittings were well worn and there was a lack of attention to housekeeping issues. That said, I would return.

10/10 Exceptional

This was the first time visiting Scotland. I went to the hotel past the office hrs. From the moment I walked in to the hotel everything was so cleaned and vintage. I mostly admired the welcoming that the receptionist gave us. We told him that we had just arrived from England and he upgraded us to junior suite. We were shocked that he did this for us. He was so kind, well behaved and understanding. The room was perfect. I am a barrister. I had to work all night and there in the room was a vintage lawyer desk. Perfect for me to do some work. Overall I will go back to the hotel every time I am in Edinburgh.

Super friendly staff and handy location
The hotel is really handy for location and about a ten minute walk. Parking is scarce around the streets and expensive so a park and ride might be the better option. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Decor is a little dated but to be honest, we were just using the room to sleep and spent the majority of our time out so it doesn't matter

8/10 Very good

Decent value in good location.
The hotel location was good, but our room could use some updating/renovation. The breakfast was continental but adequate, and the coffee was excellent. The morning shift was very friendly and helpful. Parking is a bit of a problem, and we ended up using the JustPark app which was helpful.
