Very convenient central hotel within walking distance of the royal mile. Room was clean and comfortable, spa facilities were excellent especially the pool. Only grumble was the breakfast, service was extremely slow and when it eventually arrived it was dry and tepid, waiting staff were...More
The rooms at this hotel are very comfortable and the refurbishment has been a success. The staff are lovely and most helpful but the food in the suite where our group had dinner was at best adequate and at worst did not fit the description...More

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
