Otimo hotel com alguns detalhes negativos.
A estadia foi muito boa, exceto o fato de que não tinha frigobar no quarto e o travesseiro era muito ruim (muito alto).

I booked this property many months in advance as I had planned to go to Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the hotel is close to The Pleasance Courtyard venue. I think I paid over £300 per night for a weekend during the Fringe. The Fringe was cancelled due to Covid but Expedia would not allow me to postpone my visit, even though the hotel agreed. The room was tiny and cramped. I did feel a bit aggrieved to be paying £300 for a room which would usually cost £80. Expedia were difficult to reason with, I've used them lots of times previously but won't be booking with them again. Breakfast buffet cancelled for obvious reasons, but replaced with an unappetising breakfast bag. I would rather have had some money refunded and gone out for breakfast.

A lot of exaggeration with Covid concerns first, the breakfast was put by in a bag in our door at 7am, second, they didn’t accept to keep my luggage for a few hours after my checkout due to “Covid concern”. I believe that if they are concerned with this level of details they should close their doors to the costumers
