When i booked this hotel after looking up the reviews i thought it was going to be very average but central location was great and we were only in Edinburgh for 2 nights / 2 days so would only sleep in the hotel. However it was sooo cold and we literally walked everywhere, even up Authurs Seat (with fish and chips from Royal mile-Lovely) that we ended up back at the hotel by 10pm on the first night and by midnight on the Friday night. Note: Downstairs-attached to hotel is the pub Billy Mulligans (Maggie Dicksons a few steps further which is brilliant for food and drinks and just a nicer place) The pub attached to the hotel is thriving, very loud and packed~ it was a Friday night though. Right, back to the hotel. Our room was amazing. Not my usual cup of tea but lets say we'll never forget it. They upgraded us to one of their 3 modern sample rooms as they could see it was my Husbands birthday. The wallpaper was Dandy comics and the bed was soooo comfortable, clean and the bathroom was great. This room was perfect for business with wifi and ipod/phone docking station in the wall, speakers for this in the bathroom. Free marshmellows and fresh tea and coffee with little sweets. We have never been anyway where the people are so freindly! We were taken aback by how lovely everyone was in Edinburgh, especially at this hotel, they honestly couldnt do enough for you. Very interested in looking after your needs. If we ever went to Edinburgh agin we would stay here again no problem and we actually like to try different places... Thank you everyone at The Grassmarket. Love Rob & Dawn Newly weds.
