Perfect location in the Grassmarket, very central to everything. If you don’t mind hearing the hustle and bustle of the Grassmarket(we didn’t) get a castle view room, if you prefer a more quiet room, be sure to ask when booking. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We loved the fact that it was right in the centre of the Grassmarket and near the Castle. We were on a four night break for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Our room was comfortable and bright and bathroom products were very nice and the staff were exceptional -that is reception and restaurant. The pool was the icing on the cake. thank you

Excellent location and breakfast buffet. The room got a little hot in the afternoon sun, and there was no air conditioning. The room service stopped taking orders half an hour before the stated time, which was inconvenient.
