Our room was very dark. One small window in a corner nook and very little overhead lighting.
Everything was great. Location very good. The attention too. Super clean.
Breakfast was really busy and a little disorganised at times.
The use of the spa was an excellent extra.
I enjoyed everything at the hotel, staff was friendly and approachable, spa, swimming pool the facilities were great, restaurant meals were lovely staff was too very helpful
Nice room but not value for money
Reception staff were excellent, very friendly, helpful and efficient. The location couldn't have been better. The room was quiet and clean and well appointed. It was nice to have use of a pool.
Pool area was a bit cold and could do with some heating. It would have been nice to have a bath in the en-suite. Wi-fi didn't work on the 1st day but started to work on the 2nd. To be fair, I didn't report the problem (as wasn't too bothered).
The staff was very courteous and helpful; the room was clean, well furnished and comfortable; the breakfast was very good; and the location was ideal.
The rooms were excellent, staff were great, food was good. Breakfast was buffet plus cooked & then there was fruit & pastries to take for later on your way out. Great place to stay when visiting Edinburgh.
The size of the room and facilities were very good. Excellent shower.
Disappointed with buffet breakfast and service at busy times
The room was spacious and nice. The lifts really working well and fast Friendly staff
Luxury class = no The bathroom needed repair Breakfast not up to standard, should be more varied No newspapers to be found any day The pool area was small, dark and not clean
The location of this hotel being so close to Waverly Station and yet quiet
A poor attitude of some staff at breakfast
Location was really good. Near main shops and attractions staff were very friendly. And the rooms were spotless. Service ion dining room was very good
Breakfast although very good was a bit expensive
very well located, near to train station and close enough to royal mile and all other tourist attractions.
I was expecting a more luxury hotel. In my opinion, room size, furniture and all other in room amenities are average. Bathroom, bathtub is the only kind of luxury I saw in the room and totally disproportional to other aspects to the room (bathroom almost as big as the room).
Everything except a
Had a better meal at Italian cafe a few doors away and they are reasonably priced... eg. your brekka price is OTT! Had it once and never again
great all rounder loved everything great location great breakfast good drinks
Staff were very friendly Ideally located Good views Nice (but small) room
Pool was full of lazy hangers on Poor quality muffins with Eggs Benedict Patchy wifi
good location next to Princes Street and Waverley
The space to hang clothes was too small. There was not room for one person's clothes never mind two
A nice hotel in a good location. The wifi was particularly good. Unusual to have quality wifi in hotels.
Nothing that we didn't like. This hotel is a good choice.
For the price I expected something basic for city centre. It's not! Hotel is lovely, staff were great, food was excellent, rooms good size and spotless. Definitely stay again.
the b/fast and the helpfulness of staff
Free Duck!!! Staff Friendly and helpful Good pool and sauna/heat room facilities Good gym facilities Great food from the restaurant Beds large and spacious.
Super location Beautiful building Modern facilities
A bit pricy Not much choice for breakfast
Very good location. Good reception staff Good breakfast staff Very comfortable bed
No heating in the bathroom The water was tepid Could not open the windows The view was a concrete wall The coffee was undrinkable Very expensive
The room was a deluxe, loved the view and although central, quieter location of the city centre, peaceful and restful, beds luxurious feel as well as pillows.
