  • Location could not be better and hotel is fantastic. Staff are very friendly & and the room appeared to be very clean. Sauna are all great and the food in the restaurant is very nice and we would recommend.

    Important for my early train next day and all bars were closed as was the leisure centre makeshift bar in the waiting area of reception. Breakfast was low quality and the beds were quite hard and the pillows were terrible.

  • Pleasant garden sitting area, nice atmosphere and the polite and professional staff at the front desk. Room very comfortable, quiet, good breakfast and decent menu. The receptionist was very apologetic and helpful.

    Worse of all the whole place was grubby in the extreme and the bath was tiny. Service was also slow in the bar.

  • The location is amazing, the atmosphere is easy going and staff very friendly and offered great advice on to see and do in Edinburgh. The gardens are beautiful.

    The bathroom was dirty, there was weeks old soap in the shower area, the hotel was very warm and the housekeeping service was different for each room Room upgrade all different standards. Breakfast was also automatically charged for every subsequent day after going on the first day.
