    If you have baggage and/or a car this is NOT the hotel for you. Only buses and taxis can use road outside hotel and nearest place to park car overnight is over 15 minute walk away. It is really difficult and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    Location overlooking the Edinburgh Eye

    Rooms were too hot, even with window open. They looked out into a coutyard with the noisiest air conditioning unit I have ever heard.

    1. must choose a room, through which you could see the Princess Street. Then, you could see the fireworks at night. 2. breakfast, WIFI included

    1. There's no loading area near the hotel, not convenience to family travelers with young child and elder people; 2. Very far to the parking area, around 15-20min walk.

    1.Location from Waverly Train Station 2. Restaurant-Nice food and view

    1.Bathroom 2. Furnishing-very poor-gives a feeling of worn out and very old. 3. TV too small in this day and age. 4. There should be a sitting couch in the reception or at least the chairs for an old lady to sit while check-in and check-out is in waiting or in progress.

    The location was excellent & the staff at reception were very helpful. Good selection at breakfast

    The room was extremely hot but with the window open it was too noisy to sleep - no air conditioning, only a noisy fan. The staff at breakfast on the first day were a bit brusque.

    nothing

    Small hot room windows did not open. Loud noise from heating plant outside certainly not value for money very very dissapointing would never return.So much for the castle view alas its turned into a heating plant.

    The only good thing about the hotel is the prime location. You are literally in the city centre. Easy to find your way around from waverly station. We didnt have to use any sprt pf transportation bcse of the location. The breakfast was decent

    Receptiontist who dealt with us was neither helpful nor welcoming. When i booked 2 rooms, i specifically asked in form ( bcse there was an option there for special requirements) for one twin room and i said if it is possible close to each other. When we went to check in. Whatever I asked for, didnt get noticed and on top of that she said our rooms are not ready, they will be ready around 4. ( it was 14.30 when we went to check in) while waiting I saw she said the same thing to the couple before us. Very good hospitality specially after travelling nearly 7 hours to get there. I wonder what do they do in that 2 hours after check out time...the rules state that you need to check out before 12 but when next customers comes the rooms are not ready... The bed was decent but the room was tired the bathrooms in both rooms need to be done asap. Very poor specially if you pay £600 for two nights. Not value of the money at all!! Most importantly there is no AC in the rooms so in summer you need to open windows as the rooms are hot for some breeze but then the busy road doesnt let you sleep at night.
