The hotel was lovely nice touch with Sherry and shortbread in your room. The room was a nice size and clean, a trust bar in the main lounge was just nice. The restaurant is separate to the hotel and it was not great could have been the late hour but breakfast was very nice

We were given a warm welcome and given detailed information of the bus service, which is excellent and with bus stops very near to the hotel, Edinburgh city centre is about 2 miles away. We were then told how to reach our room (No 15) on the top floor and for 70 year olds with cases was a struggle with...

I agree with other reviewers that the decor is a little tired, and having an electric shower wasn't what I expected but this is a really lovely hotel. It's very comfortable, very clean and the staff are fabulous. The breakfast was very good indeed with something for everyone (although I would have loved kippers, which were on the 'local food'...

We were part of a group of 3 couple who stayed here for the Edinburgh Festival. A nice old house that is a little tired but has beautiful original features. The staff are all great and we enjoyed the breakfasts. The bus stop is outside on the other side of the road and we never waited more than 5 minutes...

Booked this hotel having read previous reviews about being on bus route to city centre and this proved to be a big plus in our stay. Arrived early morning and parked up the car to let us have a great day in the city. Room wasnt ready but that wasnt a problem since we were there very early. Staff very...

We have stayed here several times and find it reasonably priced and comfortable. It is on a good bus route into the centre of Edinburgh and has plenty of parking. The staff are friendly and helpful and breakfasts are good. We like the jacuzzi baths, particularly after walking around Edinburgh. We will no doubt stay again.

We stayed for one night. The staff were friendly, polite and attentive. We booked the executive double room which, with the exception of an off-putting dark line where the carpet met the skirting boards, was clean and comfortable However, as it was in the basement, it seemed dark and dingy regardless of the decor. We saw your reply to a...

We recently took a weekend trip to Edinburgh, and I had a really difficult time finding an affordable place that could cater for 3 adults and 1 child for 2 nights.
