Great location in city center
Services were poor for the price charged, parking was very expensive, room was small, no face towels, lobby has vending machines with limited service and cramped
Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are big and confortable. Nothing negative expect for the breakfast.
Limit amount of breakfast. Might not be a good choice if you are going to stay in Edinburgh for more than 4 days.
Wonderful hotel with great staff. Craig, the Manager, was a great guy always helpful and smiley! Would definitely come back.
Central location. Comfortable room.
Breakfast could be improved with more selection of hot food.
Clean and secure hotel. Good simple breakfast.
Pleasant modern hotel good location , good breakfast
Heating difficult to operate no instructions extra blankets not provided
proximity to Royal Mile
Hotel wanted to charge 25 pounds per day for small dog.When queried, they then said £25 for entire stay. Eventally,they did not charge for dog.I thought this was a very excessive charge and this should have been stated before we made the booking.
Clean and good location
The hotel is in a convenient location for walking around the Royal Mile area and exploring Edinburgh. It was clean, comfortable and the included breakfast was good too.
It was nice to experience a brand new hotel that was only opened two days prior staying.
