    Cool old building.

    Quite a hike up to the Royal Mile. Cowgate is way below, down the hill.

    Great location, staff were rally lovely, could leave bag in storage for last day which was great!!

    The layout was really weird, had to go through the kitchen to get to the showers. Kitchen had very limited utensils. Wifi was nonexistent. This one was not value for money.
