We stayed there in May for the Edinburgh Marathon Festival. It is a gorgeous Georgian terrace hotel, well appointed with high quality period fixtures and fitting and fittings all maintained to an excellent condition. The rooms are spotless and well decorated, almost as if it was built yesterday - everything exudes class and quality.
It is ideally located only five minutes walk from the center of town yet it is on a quite street overlooking the royal terrace gardens.
Our hosts Edward and Maria were very helpful and always making sure we were ok, either when topping up the coffee at breakfast or helping us find the best way to one of Edinburgh's many attractions.
Talking of breakfast they were lovely, no scrimping and bought to your table (rather than standing around in a buffet).
Its hard to describe how a 200 year old building could be kept so immaculate - the rooms have huge ceilings and massive windows and are all very large (no small pokey box rooms here). The fittings are period by extremely well maintained, even the paintwork looks brand new.
The price was amazing as well, especially when compared with the likes of the larger national chains with little or no character.
I can easily recommend this place, it was an amazing find and when we next go back to Edinburgh we will be staying here.
