            Good restaurant

            Staff on arrival weren't as helpful as you would expect for a 4 star hotel- I had to carry my own bags to my bedroom despit ebeing shown there!

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Our room at the back was quiet and there was enclosed car parking it was an easy walk into all central attractions and an easy drive to Arthur's Seat. The room had a comfortable bed and large stylish good- pouring kettle

            The TV sapper was missing, the safe and fan did not work. We told staff but nothing was done. After cleaning on our 2nd day the soap and biscuits were not replenished

          • Single
            9.6

            There wasn't any that I didn't like. The breakfast was great in the morning and prepared quick and fast. The hotel staff were very polite and nice. But to top it off the room was amazing!!! Overall an extremely beautiful hotel, good location, great atmosphere!!!

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Pleasant, helpful staff. Clean, well decorated, spacious room & excellent restaurant. Quiet location, but near & convenient to city centre, particularly the Playhouse theatre.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Breakfast waiter was very efficient and especially pleasant and helpful

            No I would return.

          • Couple
            9.6

            Very nice staff, beautiful rooms, big nice bath and quit central placed.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            hotel was very unique, we enjoyed our stay, only negative is they advertise airport shuttle, and they dont have one. should take it off hotel amenties.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            A small, stylish hotel ideally situated for a city break or to explore the surrounding countryside. The staff were concerned for our comfort and it was a bonus in a busy city that we could pay for safe, on site parking.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            the friendly atmosfer and good location

          • Single
            2.4

            A boutique hotel...? My single room was on the basement level, and the size of a maid's quarters with no amenities except an electrical outlet and a coat hook on the door, and though I'd booked two nights, I left in the morning. They refused to refund me my money for the one night and the woman at the desk was absurdly rude. The whole place has a dank bizarre feel, as if its run by "characters". And the so-called famous cuisine was uneatable; I ordered two dishes and sent them back. At least I received a refund from the restaurant.

          • Couple
            10.0

            The staff were helpfull the hotel was clean and had a friendly atmosphere good hotel to stay

            If I had to complain it was the portions u got for meals
