Fabulous decor!
Great location, wonderful atmosphere!

Very Good8.0
Nearly perfect
Beautifully refurbished hotel in a contemporary, but comfortable design/style. Really something special. Breakfast menu was a bit limited and I would suggest a few more choices. Also, front desk struggled recommending restaurants and we were sent to the old town, when we really just wanted something close by in the new town. Not a major issue, but things I thought were slightly unusual. No hesitation in staying here again. Great location and a great hotel.

Fantastic
Fantastic place to stay. Very helpful concierge. We pulled up on the kerb and they came out to park the car for us. Then they showed us to our rooms and brought our bags up. Very big spacious room. The tuck box is a nice touch too with some local sweets. Highly recommend staying here and will stay next time we are in Edinburgh
