This hotel is a boutique hotel not far from the centre with good bus links and free parking. However only 20-30 minutes to walk to Princess Street. We didn't bother taking the bus as close enough to walk. Some nice restaurants nearby. Friendly helpful staff. I would recommend this hotel.

I give this place 5 stars, but be aware that it's an older hotel, with the accompanying squeaky floors, etc. It is not a 5-star hotel in the sense of super fancy, but it's comfortable and quiet. Sort of like a beloved grandma's house, with high ceilings and comfortable furnishings. The bathrooms are remodeled and very nice. The staff are...

I unfortunately never got as far as to stay at the hotel but the booking procedure was enough to put me off. I booked a room for one night (a Thursday) in February through Late Rooms.

Dear Danielle. I would like to make this very clear to you, again, the booking was made incorrectly through LateRooms, not the hotel, this was then cancelled as they made the incorrect booking for you, you were however offered to rebook directly with us when this was brought to our attention, which you refused too.

Lovely hotel. We've arrived very late, but we had no problem checking in. Very comfortable and spacious room. Delicious breakfast. My daughters didn't want to leave the hotel to visit the city. Lovely staff. A great experience in Edinburgh certainly to be repeated.

The hotel was really comfortable, the room was spacious and the big bed was very comfortable. The room was clean and the bathroom was nice. I liked the way it had the shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the shower so easy to use and yet they still gave a little trial bottle. A nice touch. The blow dryer was...

We spent two nights at this hotel and were pleasantly surprised. As it is a small boutique type hotel, noise levels were always low and we only saw other guests around breakfast.
