Excellent

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 14, 2009

Very classy establishment.

Stayed 1 night in November 09 as a handy alternative to finding our way home after a night out in the big city.

It is guaranteed a great write up because we were given an upgrade to a full suite! Lots of space, a bed big enough for 4, and a view of Edinburgh Castle.

Wowee.

We didn't try breakfast or the spa, but enjoyed our stay enormously.

It has a car park on site, but strangely they charge guests £9 for an overnight stay.

Unique Quality: Location and style.

Directions: On Lothian Road, about 200m south of the west end of Princes St.

A nice surprise!!

This came as a very nice surprise!! I had read quite some bad reviews about this hotel on tripadvisor and was really wondering what I would find!

If you don't expect a hotel with a view, this is fine! It is located not too far from the famous castle and it's walking distance from the city centre but it is not that close.

The staff was nice and helpful. The room was spacious and well furnished, the bed was a real dream (well, that was a King size), the only negative remark I could make is about the bathroom: in general, it was ok but, one more time, the shower was integrated within the bath! This is purely personal but if you don't have space to have both separately, just install a nice shower. I never have the time to take a bath in a hotel room anyway...

The hotel facilities also included a spa and a big swimming pool but I haven't got the opportunity to test any of them...

Unique Quality: The breakfast was absolutely fantastic! Definitely the kind of buffet you wish to find in this kind of hotel...and as any good Scottish breakfast, it included haggis and black pudding!

Stayed at yon establishment on a business trip to asset strip some company offices and warehouses.

Hotel is okay and quite busy but there's hardly a Scot to be seen on either side of the client/employee barrier.

Unique Quality: I was lucky enough to have a view of the house on the hill that the Scots laughingly call a castle.

Admittedly it was a partial view and entailed standing on a chair and looking over a nearby roof, but there was a view of yon Hoose.

VT Member Han85 doesn't agree with my assessment of the Castle. His opinion is as valid as the next man's, however, the Norman Castles such as Arundel and Warwick are far more imposing. Sorry Jock.

A very relaxing experience .

It is worth staying in this hotel for the spa alone. It is rated as one of the the best in the world. It is extremely relaxing after a day sightseeing or shopping. To me, being able to relax in the jacuzzi at the top of the hotel with the sounds of the Edinburgh streets and the fresh Scottish air, well, it is magic. Good food at this hotel and comfortable rooms. It is also in a good area as it is in the centre of Edinburgh. The Usher Hall and The Traverse Theatre are over the road. It is also very near Princes Street which is the main shopping area.

Unique Quality: Spa is fantastic and treatment rooms superb.

Very good choice to stay in Edinburgh

Situated not far from the city center (Castle, Royal Mile, Princess street, Grass Market).

Unique Quality: There is a very good spa in the hotel. You can book a room via internet.

This is probably my favourite hotel in Edinburgh city centre. It has a convenient location on Festival Square (which is at one end of Princes Street). It is perfectlt placed for sightseeing, shopping and nightlife (the latter was particularly important to us as we stayed for a hen weekend!)

The public areas of the hotel have an air of luxury and it seems that TV celebrities choose to stay in this hotel too.

Facilities within the hotel include: Swimming pool, gym, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdriers, televisions in the bedrooms.

Unique Quality: The rooms are very spacious and beautifully decorated. We had a spectacular view of Edinburgh Castle from our room. This is a hotel where you can ask specifically for a non-smoking room. This is ideal for me as I am noted at work for my ability to spot when staff have been smoking in company cars!

We found that we could easily obtain additional tea and coffee making supplies when we had used up the supply that had been left when the room had been prepared for us.

The swimming pool within the hotel is larger than your average hotel pool and so it is perfect for doing lengths - a perfect way to relax the morning after! There is also a spa within the hotel thought we didn't have enought time to use it.

Directions: Follow the A1 (from Newcastle/Berwick area) West into Edinburgh and follow the signs to the city centre. The hotel is located just of the west end of Princes Street on Western Approach Road.
