unfriendly incompetent staff, messy breakfasttables, no bread refill, dirty bathrooms with mould in shower and around window frames in room.
Good location and great view of the castle. Very friendly staff. Large room with two very comfortable king size beds. Large TV. Great pool too.
Rooms were very hot, even with windows open. Since windows were open the front street was quite noisy till early morning.
View of Edinburgh Castle Balcony
Nothing to dislike
hotel location perfect had a great view of the castle special thanks to Manuel and Lucy for looking after us so well.
Everything in the hotel was good for us and the fact that there was a bus stop and eating places across the road was a bonus.
I was told there was a bath & shower ,but there was only a shower. As I am disabled it was right for me but not for my companion who likes a bath.
Restaurant menu a bit limited.
Everything was nice... its worth a stay
Parking should be free
Great and helpful staff, very good facilities and great location
My husband was on crutches, the access to the reception desk was impossible. There needs to be a re-think about the design of the lower levels..bars etc
The staff on the reception particularly the gentleman who was very helpful in giving us advice on the different local buses and times .
Room not ready for check in at 2.30 had to wait until after 3pm until the cleaners had finished.
our stay was ok had a great view was very comfortable and clean
we had a party of 4 and we only had towels for two . cups . glasses. and tea making facilities for two . no shower grip in the shower so my sister could not have a shower she is a big lady so she has to have shower .
Despite being at the height of the Festival, the hotel ran perfectly and the staff were friendly and responsive. The hotel turns over its function rooms to the festival and you can even print out your tickets there. Rooms are large and quieter facing the rear - rooms with the terrific castle view are at a premium price. Modern bathrooms but shower only. Large beds. Breakfast is good at extra cost. And all this right on Grassmarket with parking if you need it.
Price hike in the festival! Room furniture was tired on our first visit some years ago and is unchanged.... No aircon which is not needed in this city but the windows can be hard to open more than a bit.
location next to Edinburgh Castle
1.very noisy until 3:30am on consecutive nights. Whilst double glazed, soundproofingis prety non existent 2 Bath had a number of black hairs in it so not clean 3 We paid for 4 people and yet bathroom supplies were for one person 4. We had to queue for breakfast, and a lengthy wait at Reception when seekig a carpark pass 5. Falls some way short of a 4 star experience
I loved our stay at this hotel, little things make big impressions :)
There wasn't a thing about this hotel I didn't like.
castle view rooms on the top floor.
parking view rooms tend to be noisy.
Hotel was clean. Staff were friendly and efficient. Surprisingly quiet given the Grassmarket location. Bed extremely comfortable. Housekeeping staff respected the Do Not Ddisturn sign. The Heights Restaurant gave a great view of the castle whilst enjoying breakfast, and there was a good choice for breakfast, however on the Sunday morning the buffet was not refilled.
Shower shield didn't work properly and water leaked over the bathroom floor. Lifts seemed to be extremely slow.
could not believe the steps to reception with heavy cases! Does this comply with regulations.
Location was excellent, staff very friendly and helpful , room great and beds huge! Loved the pool too. Breakfast amazing and we sat overlooking the castle.
Nothing! Would have liked a jacuzzi ?
Clean room Great location Excellent staff Good Pool, Gym and Sauna High quality bedding and comfortable beds Premium rooms have good views of the castle
Very high bar prices Aged decoration
The location. The view from room 4009. Parking available at a reasonable cost. Cleanliness. Friendly helpful staff.
Helpful staff at reception.
Comfortable and modern with a great location to visit the old city centre and the Royal mile. A nice pool too!
The rooms are nice but they may soon need to be refreshed a bit. Also the cleaning staff sem to have a very annoying habit of nocking on your door at 8am to see if you are still sleeping or if they can clean your room.
The location was perfect, situated between both the train stations in Edinburgh. Edinburgh castle was more or less on your door step with lots of attractions close by. The members of staff were brilliant and couldnt help you enough. The sauna and the swimming pool were just the tonic after a night in Edinburgh.
The only negative I could give the hotel is that the gym was very small.....BUT I didnt go there to work out and what they did have sufficed for our short stay.
