Exceptional Customer Service wins it from me !
I checked in on Saturday 24 October for a overnight stay with my friend. From the minute i had checked in the two woman on reception could not have been anymore accommodating from making bookings for dinner, breakfast , pool and gym facilities. We stayed in a Deluxe room which was very modern and comfortable with some lovely free toiletries. The Breakfast and dinner were very nice. The waiters were very professional and also helpful. This was our first stay in Edinburgh and certainly wont be the last ,every member of staff I came into contact with both days customer service were exceptional and it made my stay very comfortable. I have also recommended you to family and friends . Thankyou!

They clean your room and refresh toiletries & towels everyday. Too bad sauna and steam rooms are closed due to covid restrictions. Other than that, will definitely recommend and book again.
