Property was clean, suite was nice and large, but a little chilly! Took a while to warm up, especially in the bathroom!
Staff in restaurant were helpful to a point. No real apology about food sent back then charged for it anyway. Had to complain to manager. At breakfast, felt like the enemy for complaining about food the previous evening!!
Very clean, quiet, comfortable room and bed. Walk in shower in spacious bathroom (no bath). Good breakfast choice, quality and service. Evening meals in restaurant were excellent, especially good steaks with salt rub. Staff friendly and very helpful. Location good for walking to Royal Mile, city centre (Christmas markets), Arthur's Seat, etc. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Edingburgh.
Breakfast variety and choice was good. Staff service in the breakfast area excellent!
Heating in the room was not working properly. Warm water in the shower was not working properly.
Good location friendly staff
Beds were 2 singles pushed together, sauna was out of order, parking very expensive at £20 per night
Bed was very comfortable.
Only one square pin plug socket in room, so problem having both mobile phones and tablets.
