    Very friendly helpful staff, good service, nice room.

    We were in a top floor room and with no lift, my wife found the stairs very difficult, but l would blame myself for that l took it there would have been one.

    Sorry it should not be 4 star, facilitys are not good. No lift. Not at all suitable for elderly or people with mobility problems. Even at breakfast time they had no bacon, staff are very undertrained. lacking in so many things for it to be in such a central place.

    We found this hotel on Itison and werent sure what to expect but we loved our stay and would certainly recommend this hotel. We had a suite on the first floor which had a huge bed with sofa and chairs and an amazing huge bath! Breakfast was perfect. We had full cooked breakfast which was perfectly cooked. The young lady who served us for both dinner and breakfast was extremely helpful, friendly and efficient. The room was very clean and bedding and towels were to a high standard.

    Reception service could have been more efficient. The lady who greeted us on arrival said she would call us when our room was ready but we are still waiting on her call! In addition, when providing such a luxurious suite, we did expect bathrobes and slippers which would have been very much appreciated after a long day touring the many interesting sights of our capital city! Another small point we would mention was dinner .. We were the only two people at dinner at 8pm and the atmosphere was non existent. The food was just ok. No festive choices on 23 December such as turkey and the food choice was limited. Finally, although the room was spotlessly clean, there was an accumulation of dust on the small ledge around the bathroom just above shower screen height. However, all in all these are very small cons and would not put us off returning for a stay in the future.

    Superb

    Excellent staff and location. The Hotel has contemporary tasteful design. Reasonable bar prices. Didn't eat there so unable to comment on catering.

    Breakfast not included in price. Very small double bed in our particular room. I would definitely stay again but would check size of bed.

    Superb

    Excellent location, minutes away from the main street `Princes Street` and the train station set back a few streets for a slightly slower pace and less crowds An old well kept building with a relaxed atmosphere. We had a massive room on the top floor overlooking the city - fantastic! Friendly, attentive staff offering a great fresh breakfast with standard items as well as off menu selection. Would recommend - less than 5 minutes walk from station behind Rose street and George street.

    The staff were always on hand to help and were always there at reception to answer any questions we had! As well as complying with our needs! There was a great deal of care for customers! The food was to a high standard and service was great! The rooms were clean with a great design including a large tv, lovely bathroom and big bed. We also had a great view of the city! The best part was the location as it was close to all centre pubs and shops, perfect for our shopping trip

    We did not find anything we were unhappy about
