Weren't really acknowledged for check-in for a few minutes. Our room had a view of dumpsters and was not a very comfortable mattress. Location is great, its a fine hotel but just was underwhelmed.

This place was great! Nice, clean, spacious rooms and bathrooms. Very modern amenities. A great location - only 5 min walk to the Royal Mile and a 4 min walk to the train station. Staff was super friendly and accommodating (holding our luggage for the day after we checked out) Would definitely stay there again when visiting Edinburgh!

I like the location staff, gym, spa, and restaurant were all good. The bed was really comfortable. What I didn't like the broken elevator, the room was a little warm did have a fan in the furnace that helped a little.

It was conveniently located. Super close to everything from the train station to the royal mile. We were there for our honeymoon and loved our room with a view of the North Sea. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone. This was a great find on Expedia. Also, try the full Scottish breakfast from the hotel’s restaurant and the cocktails from the bar.
