I spent one night at this hotel and was delighted to find it so comfortable and well located for visiting the main Edinburgh attractions. The room was warm and very clean with a good selection of toiletries and an efficient shower. Breakfast was lovely as were the gardens. All in all a great place to stay at reasonable rates.
