Pros:The Ben Doran was the first place we stayed after flying into Edinburgh from the west coast of the USA. We had a very long flight, and to make matters worse, we arrived at 7:00 a.m. UK time, without sleep and my wife having been severely airsick the entire trip. We arrived at the Ben Doran at 10:00 a.m., and asked if we could check in early. Due to the fact my wife was sick, the staff allowed us into our room early (even though check-in wasn't until 3:00 p.m. This allowed my wife to sleep and recover, which saved the first few days of our trip. The location is great (a short bus ride from the royal mile). I am very appreciative of the great professional staff in accommodating me and my sick wife!
