Breakfast was a disaster Poor system for customers and staff Many people confused and waiting Worst system in 2 weeks traveling Food quality good
If you are looking for good location, friendly staff, nice room and atmosphere, this is the hotel that you should book!!! All the staff were exceptional friendly, always smiling and trying to help all guests. Special thanks to Mrs. Catherine, she made our stay awesome from checking in until leaving the hotel. She was always asking us if we need anything! She is gorgeous !! Definitely, will come back to the hotel when I am back to Edinburgh.
Had a problem with the lady at reception quite rude
The rude receptionist
Historically classic property in a fantastic central location in Edinburgh.
Excellent facilities , wonderful service from all the staff and s fabulous breakfast! Everything was a very high standard.
A rather disappointing view from our room overlooking a courtyard so the room was dark .
