This is a great property in the absolute heart of Edinburgh. The location cannot be topped. The service is excellent. The rooms are chic and clean. We have stayed here before and will stay here again next time we are in town.

Brilliant hotel with a lovely aesthetic. Food was nice and we enjoyed that the hotel had a happy hour for wine. Staff were very accommodating and kind. Only thing we wanted to note is that the mini fridge in room was really loud and kept us up through the first night. Not sure if it was old or faulty but we had to unplug it from the wall the second night to stop the very pound vibrating and buzzing sound. Pool facilities were great too and we enjoyed spending time in bedroom.
