    I stayed here for a birthday trip for my mum to Edinburgh and it was an excellent base. Everything we wanted to see on our trip was within walking distance and the hotel was very nice indeed. Breakfast was varied and overall good. The pool and spa were excellent. Clean

    The room was in a classic style and nicely decorated, but maybe a little worn.

    Nice and clean room but AC did not work and no fans available. Balcony was dirty and there were pet-bottles used as ash- tray left from former guests. Location is ok but it takes approx 10 min to walk (up hill) to the old town.

    The dirty balcony and AC that did not work, they told us that someone should look at it and that we would get a fan once one was available but we neither got a fan or saw/noticed that they have looked at the AC. I did not feel that the price for the room meet our expectations .

    Nice to have the spa and was in a quiet location.

    Restaurant was overpriced, made us eat elsewhere. Was nice but probably wouldn’t stay again.

    Get location for the Fringe

    The most hot and stuffy room I have ever stayed in. There is a system in the room for cooling. Temp dial and fan setting. Don't be fooled - this is not air conditioning. Apparently the air is ducted over some external pipework that in slightly warm weather renders the system useless. They did provide a fan but did not do much. This is not just our room there were others at the reception complaining.
