    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.

    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 .
