5/5 Excellent

Edinburgh practically perfect

My stay in Edinburgh was perfect for me. The position of the hotel is excellent for transport or walking about the city. Near to the main galleries as well as buses to others..My only minus was that my room faced George St and I like an open window so two nights were blighted by noise from party goers at the Dome across the street.

Stayed 6 nights in Oct 2019

2/5

History, location were good. However as a 5 star hotel the breakfast was very ordinary, the staff seemed poorly trained, the room showed signs of wear and tear. The bars and restaurant were uninviting and cold.

Stayed 2 nights in Oct 2019

4/5 Good

Bed too hard Tea, coffee, filters not replaced consistently Crisps and nuts should be complimentary as they were when Hotel was in the Principal chain Guest computer running Uniguest unbelievably slow when trying to print boarding passes - 40 minutes. Unacceptable in a hotel of this quality. Keyboard also configured such that the @ symbol was hidden. Staff of uniformly exceptional quality - not just front of house staff. Food, especially breakfast, was excellent.

Stayed 3 nights in Oct 2019

2/5

This Hotel s adequate at best. Disappointing in almost every way. Bathroom was incredibly small .A 4 in space to put any cosmetic items above the very small pedestal sink. Two people could not fit in. Room too full of furniture to move around in. I suppose they thought putting in a full size sofa would make it appear as a suite. Wrong. We checked at at 2 pm after a flight from a USA. Exhausted only to find out the elevator and shaft were under construction. The banging of metal on metal, electric drills and saws was nonstop. After my shower ie wet hair. I complained they offered another room adjacent to main lobby. I asked when construction would stop 4 pm I was told. Not enough time to dry my hair, repack and schlep our stuff to another room.Exhausted decided to wait it out. At 5:50 they were still going at it. The shaft abutted our room. Finally some peace. Until the room above turned on TV. Hotel has paper thin walls. Could hear all the world news, guest conversations, laughter in hall. At nine sharp the next am banging, wrenches on pipes etc begin enforce. Requested another room. Sorry full up. We left and checked into Prestonfield Field and our vacation finally began. There is a plethora of fine hotels in Edinburgh this is not one. Oh yes, one more note self parking* is not available at hotel. It is a brisk 25 min. Walk up and down hill 24£ per day They allot you a12£ voucher for you entire stay. Do not stay at this hotel
