Nice, clean and tidy hotel to stay in the heart of old city centre Edinburgh. Easily accessible from railway station and other popular tourist attractions.

When we arrived at the hotel, we were given our room key and went into our room but it hadn’t been cleaned yet which we weren’t very happy about due to COVID so we went back down to reception and we were then given a different room and a bigger one too because of what happened which we really appreciated. Apart from the room we originally meant to stay in not being clean, we felt the hotel was a brilliant place to stay and in a brilliant area of Edinburgh with it being very centre to everything. The staff were lovely and their covid regulations are very clear and easy to follow.
