Excellent4.0 / 5
At £35 per room per night, you can't go wrong however expect a rough diamond. It is no longer star rated. I didn't find out why. From what I could gather, the hotel has in recent months been taken over by a local businessman who is steadily transforming the hotel. Front of house is very clean and modern, most of the staff are very friendly, helpful and have a great knowledge of Edinburgh however the rough edges include our shower tiles that needed to see bleach and a scrubbing brush, the tops of our curtains were white with dust, an old sock in the wardrobe, a metal frame squeaky bed and a double quilt squeezed in to a single cover (twin room). On the plus side we were supplied with iron and ironing board, tea & coffee making facilities, a hair dryer and each time we pointed out a fault, it was very quickly remedied. We were in room 23 which had a lovely view of the garden but it wasnt accessible to us. The room was as warm or as cool as we wanted with the radiator fitted with a TVR and the window was able to be opened in 1 of 2 ways, side or top tilting making it safe to leave the window open at all times without worry of intruders. The room also had a flat screen TV but only offered free view however the hotel offered free Wi-Fi. There are several TV's in the shared areas but they were all running from one free view box. On a couple of occasions, gentlemen asked for the football, so that was what we all got without consultation regardless of where we were, be it in the restaurant, lounge or bar. The bus stop into the city is almost directly outside of the hotel and buses run approx. every 5 mins. Holyrood Park is literally a stones throw away. The food it freshly cooked to order although choice is limited at the moment but a more varied 'a la carte' menu is currently being designed. Overall, would I stay again? Most definitely YES but I suspect that once the rough edges of this diamond have been polished off, the rates will soar.

Fair2.0 / 5
To be fair I checked in at the last minute. But if had known the size of the room I was paying for I would never have went for it. There was no information as to the room I was booking and on arrival the first I knew of the size of room was from the receptionist who informed me as I had booked last minute then the room was rather small, as if I was responsible for it. Looking back now I should have withheld payment and left. Totally ruined my visit to the capital thanks very much. Basically went back to the room and got my head down and left first thing. Was so annoyed I went somewhere else for breakfast. Well you live and learn and I certainly won't be back in a hurry.
