Concierge service was great
We had a tear on our bed sheets, hair dryer did not reach mirror in bedroom, breakfast was bit disorganised.
Breakfast a little busy
Staff and pillows! Food Room
Public toilets dirty Waiting staff could do with repeating back the order our order was wrong twice
Great location. Excellent spa facilities. Very comfortable beds.
The staff could not have been more charming, or helpful, especially Sam the young barman in the Cally Bar. The facilities are excellent and the whole place screams 'Luxury'.
Location pool and fitness suite were excellent
Room was small for the price probably because I was a single traveler
the hotel and facilities were very good
trying to sell us an upgrade for £30.00 to a castle view when we were only staying one night and it was already dark bit of a waste of time
Location Restaurant Room Staff
Absolute Toplage! Peacock Alley tolle Atmosphäre. Perfect for the afternoon tea. Friendly and attentive staff at the door (doormen) and one, but only one, waiter in the Peacock Alley on Saturday morning who did a great job and made us feel like guests and not disturbing.
We could write our name on the top of the minibar...that's not clean!!! We did not want to check more in the room after we saw that! In the Bar the staff could clean up the glasses and mirrors from time to time, too.... The SPA itself is not at all what you expect in a 5* hotel(!) old, broken surrounds at the pool, no bathrobes, only 5 chairs in the pool sauna area...no relaxing area. No water or any drink offered. The front desk staff was poor! No information or rooming at the check in. We tried to call the reception to pick up our luggage the departure day...the FO did not even answer the phone! The operator did transfer me twice, too, but still nobody answered the phone! We brought the luggage down and did ask if the phone does not work. The staff told us that it does work but they have been busy?????? Thought we are in a 5* hotel. The phone should never ring more than times and of course somebody needs to answer the phone!!! A man standing both days behind the desk (no batch) did nothing. What was he therefore? He could have answered the phone? Offer a call back if everybody is busy!!!! Our information bill was left on the desk for the next guests.... we saw that!!!! Is it Hilton standard to leave guest datas on the desk available to everybody????
The location was central. Staff were all attentive. The building was beautiful and our room was lovely with all the things you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Would definitely stay again.
Everything a hotel should be,no complaints text book very clean
Very minor the walls in the corridors bare some pictures wouldn't go amiss, best I could come up with
It was my wife's birthday celebration and everything couldn't have been better.
Staff is friendly and hotel is central between old en 'new' town. Room with view at the castle is fab! nice lounge. Also gym and swimming pool
Rooms are a bit small and hotel is a bit old fashion
Staff - pre-empted all our needs on arrival, breakfast and departure. Extremely professional and courteous.
After arriving back at the hotel after dinner we were disappointed to find the bar busy with a staff do meaning there was nowhere open to get a drink. It would have been nice to be told this on arrival.
breakfast and the attention to detail by the waiter
2 tea bags only in the room
Queen room was not as advertised. Had full bed and very cramped
The location is great - easy walk from train station and to other tourist attractions. The staff were very professional and helpful, even the maintenance man. Our recently renovated room was very spacious and comfortable.
The air conditioning in our original room was very noisy and had faulty controls. Our son's room was the same. We were quickly changed to a renovated room. Something which is the luck of allocation of rooms but our room was the last in the corridor which meant about 200m walk to lift - only a problem because of my arthritis.
Amazing hotel and staff , the restaurant is excellent with great service the Bar was class a wide range of wines, whiskey and cocktails and very friendly bar staff . Will be returning in the summer for sure !!
Ambience. Food was good and drinks selection excellent. Staff very helpful and friendly.
2 of our 3 rooms were not ready until 5.30 and 6pm respectively. Maintenance of our room was poor. Street facing rooms could do with secondary glazing
Breakfast not included
Bed was comfortable, dressing gown was comfortable and shower was good. Breakfast was also good.
Room was not ready until about an hour after checkin time. Staff were initially unapologetic about this. When it transpired that there was no hairdryer in the room, where it should have been, we phoned and asked for a replacement. Despite beimg told that we would receive one we did not and noone bothered calling us back. The room was off a cold, dark grey corridoor with a view of internal roofing and walls. The pool, sauna etc were small and basic. The overall decor of te hotel was drab and unappealing.
We arrived at 4pm and our room was not ready for 40 minutes despite check in being from 3pm. We were not offered to take a seat anywhere, or offered a drink while we were waiting and in fact effectively left just standing in the lobby. We gave our bags to the concierge, went to the spa to make a booking to kill some time, around 20 minutes, when our room was ready, instead of our bags being taken to the room for us in our absence, we had to collect from the concierge and take up ourselves. All of the above would not occur in any of the five star hotels we have stayed in previously. To disappoint us further, as it was our anniversary I had asked for the best room of our type (deluxe) and the room we were given was definitely not this - as far from the lift as possible, next to a service door with staff going in and out often, in a corner with only one window...nothing like the image on the website and not what I would assume the 'best' in that type to be. We will not be back.
The hotel was ideally located and for a short trip to see the sights of Edinburgh. In addition it was comfortable and well appointed.
We arrived at the hotel at noon. Our room wasn't ready, which was fair enough as we had arrived quite early. However we didn't get access to the room until 4.20pm at the third time of asking. Even at that point there seemed to be some heated debate amongst the reception staff regarding the availability of the room. Embarrassingly, despite breakfast being included within our room rate we were informed otherwise and asked to pay when seeking a table. I pointed out that breakfast was in fact part of the room rate, which was accepted. That information did not seem to be available to the restaurant staff which caused an awkward moment.
Breakfast was good
Service was poor Tap broken in room Noisy air conditioning Room not ready on arrival Overpriced Bar too expensive
