Good 6.0
Easy Access to Waverley.
Chosen to be close to Waverley Station for early train. Excellent location - just walked across the road to the station entrance. Our room was a bit of a journey from reception as hotel occupied two or three separate buildings, joined by overhead corridors. The room was small, but all we needed was a bed for the night! Would happily stay again!

misleading information during covid19 restrictions
We arrived in Edinburgh on the day of new covid19 restrictions. Whilst we recognise it is a difficult time for all, the staff at the front desk was not able to explain the restrictions regarding which eateries were open. He stated NONE were open and we had to rely on cold supermarket take-away food as the hotels had no room service. However, later that night as we drove past downtown Edinburgh we saw all the fast food eateries, take away places, cafes were open. This was disappointing as we would have preferred this to cold cuts. I believe staff should be kept abreast of rules as customers shouldn't have to needlessly suffer. If we all don't venture out during covid19, the hospitality industry will collapse. For your own sake - stay informed.

Excellent hotel
This hotel is in a great location opposite the train station in the old town. The staff were amazing and the hotel was super clean and comfortable. Our only slight problems were the banging noises from outside at about 6am each morning and the fact we couldn’t get the extractor fan to work in the bathroom. Overall our stay was excellent, thank you!
