We were greeted by friendly reception staff who directed us to the restaurant where we were well looked after by attentive, mannerly staff who responded to a couple of requests quickly and pleasantly. Good choice of fresh and delicious food.

The hotel was really nice. The receptionist very kindly upgraded us to a lovely big room with stunning views over Edinburgh and the Castle. The room was quite plain and a little outdated, but it was very comfortable and had a little settee and coffee table, a big bathroom with a shower over the bath and had all the usual...

This hotel has an excellent location, not far from the station and near shops and the castle. Breakfast was very good, staff very attentive. Room was okay, the bed was comfy but some areas needed a lick of paint. The short blind at the window was rather unusual. There was a strange smell near the lift.

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighbourhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
