We stayed here for two nights for a wedding. The look of the hotel is fantastic and a great location, staff were friendly but the rooms weren't great. We had a standard double room and the bed was so uncomfortable, you could feel the springs...More
We were upgraded to the very top floor of this old hotel. Very charming, but everything a bit quirky. The bed was comfy and the staff was wonderful. The location can't be beat, in the heart of the old city.
We were apprehensive about our short break, we had booked through BA, flight and hotel, the type of room was described different on both web sites, I booked it then the problem started, the reservations manager ignored my e-mails, he did not even know the...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.
