This charming hotel is situated just steps from Edinburgh's famous Princes Street, the Haymarket and Waverley stations. It enjoys a quite fantastic location in the very heart of this famous city.
The Hotel is idealy suited for a weekend in Edinburgh. The breakfast is basic but nice, the hotel could do with a sprucing up and their was a smell of air freshner in the halls.
The Bar in the Hotel closes every night at 10:45 which is a bit early for a bar in a hotel as most people going out would only be arriving back at that time.
The staff were friendly and helpful. We had a very enjoyable stay.
