    The room is clear and nice, the staffs are so kind, the most important is the price is low, excellent!

    A little far away from the city centre and the wifi could not work well

    The period features such as the corn acing,the high ceilings ,chandeliers ,big high ,wide windows and the leafy area in which the hotel was situated.

    The hotel didn't seem particularly clean,there were stains on the carpets,the carpet was dangerously loose on the stairs,that led to the bedrooms downstairs .Downstairs did not smell particularly fresh either but smelt damp,the view from one of the bedrooms was like a small building site and the room was very dark ,plus the bed was not at all comfortable.Also there never seemed to be many staff around if you wanted to ask anything. Althought the dining room and other areas in the hotel had some beautiful period features which it would probably be a shame to ever remove ,I also felt the carpets and paint was in need of freshing up and replacing .Also I was disappointed by the fact that there were no table clothes on the tables when we went for breakfast,and I was also disappointed with breakfast,nothing seemed overly fresh and there was no hot food on offer.

    Pleasant young staff. Helpful.

    Although it didn't look dirty, the room didn't feel or smell fresh and aired. Same with the dining room - gorgeous view, but the carpet needs replaced, tables need to be cleaned more promptly. More attention to detail needed. No remote control for tv.

    The building, old and smart. The breakfast, healthy and pleasant. The rooms and bathrooms ample and comfortable. The staff helpful and experienced

    Poor wi-fi coming and going both in rooms and downstairs..

    Location. Staff were friendly are helpful. Bed comfortable. Good night sleep. Breakfast consisted of fruits, yoghurts, cereal, fresh toast. Plenty of everything.

    Smell of dampness, damp on walls and ceiling in room. View from window was rubbish bins. Cobwebs in corners.

    The city.

    We booked the"Honeymoon suite" which was below ground level, had serious damp and even peeling wallpaper. It was grossly overpriced. I was going to complain but didn't want to ruin my fiancee's birthday, the Ballantrae already did that. Seriously bad breakfast too, easily the worst i've ever had in edinburgh. For £170 a night - it was outrageously poor.

    Good place to stay, on-street parking only but plenty of spaces locally

    No lifts and a bit tricky reaching the top floor after a night out. Breakfast was not great - cereals, prunes, toast etc were fine but cheese slices still in plastic wrappers and plastic ham.

    Location was brilliant - could easily walk into centre. Staff very helpful and friendly Breakfast ok Seemed a bit expensive but we did go at festival time so everywhere is at a premium. Overall worked well for us

    Decor in room needed updating - some stains on wallpaper Bathroom fan didn't work Wifi only in public areas but not really a problem. Felt like it needed modernising.

    Checking out!

    We booked the honeymoon suite for a 1 night stay and paid £166.00. We checked in after a very long but very enjoyable day of sighting seeing, we walked into the room and were greeted by wall paper pealing off the walls, curtains hanging off the rails, sticky carpets, mouldy and black net curtains, mould around the bath and in the shower, a very small double bed which was extreamly uncomfortable, dated furniture which was also tatty and a shocking mix of colours which quite frankly looked at mess. The room was hot as it was in a basement also. We asked to be moved to another room, however, no other was available, so we had no choice but to spend the night. We did not stay for breakfast as could olny imagine the state of the kitchens if that was meant to be their top room! The staff we spoke to acknowledged our complaint, which we put in writing prior to checking out, and said, 'we get complaints alot' and 'the owner knows the issues he has with the room'!! In my opinion this room should not be stayed in again until it has been fully refurbished and re-decorated. VERY dissapointing.

    Friendly reception staff and a quiet room, as requested.

    Cheap bedding - sheets and pillows. The bar was not open officially but the receptonist was available to help. The bathroom window would not stay open, without something being propped beneath it. There was no full length mirror in the room. The bathroom facilities need updating.

    The look of the bath

    Smell of damp, damp patches on walls, paper pealing off walls, holes in walls, curtains hanging off poles, mattress too big for base, bedding too big for bed, bedding felt damp,tiles missing in bath room, no parking, directions and distance to car park unrealistic,

    The actual building and hotel were lovely.

    The bed not made properly. Dust everywhere. The continental breakfast was poor little selection.

    Good location. Quiet room at back of hotel. Only saw staff at breakfast time but very friendly and helpful.

    Breakfast as put off by cheap, unappetising processed cold meats and cheese slices. Cheap toast bread and stale croissants. Could feel bed springs so difficult to get to sleep. In top floor room and nothing to keep slash window open on hot nights. Shower was a dribble. Stained carpets everywhere. All that for £160 per night. I know Edinburgh festival was on but given above definitely felt ripped off.
