Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Check in was under staffed and not trained well. Room was not cleaned well, with areas of dust, dirt and hair left untouched. I appreciate this is a large chain, but there seemed to be very little care given.

This is our favourite hotel in Edinburgh. We have now stayed there 4 times. It's in the ideal location to visit the royal mile, the castle and just a short walk over north bridge down to Princes Street. On site parking is excellent, you can park safely & just forget about your car for a few days.
