Stayed for 2 nights and we were given room 10. It was a self contained apartment with it's own kitchen. Room looked beautiful but it was missing all the finishing touches you would expect of a quality establishment. Firstly, the carpet was exceptionally dirty, the patio door was open with no key (we later found on vanity table) , there...

This Hotel has taken some criticism, unwarranted in my view. Other travellers has stated its too far from anything, not so, a 15 min walk to the City centre, a 20 minute walk to the Britannia loads of good eateries around. The Hotel run by a laid back pleasant couple , Heather and David. The rooms presentable and functional. Enough...

My parents came to visit me to England and they planned on visiting Edinburgh. I booked this hotel for them as it looked lovely from their website. Unfortunately little did I know that they were unprofessional, uncooperative and evasive because what happened next was turned out to be something from the twilight zone. The story goes like this, my dad...
