    Terrific value and location ”

    Everything you need for a short trip to Edinburgh is here. A stone’s throw from the Royal Mile and all the main sights. Hotel is spotless and a great choice of breakfast available. Staff are friendly and very efficient in a quiet unfussy way. Can’t think of a real downside to our stay here. We’ll definitely be back!

    Capital Vacation”

    The location, staff friendliness, nice atmosphere.

    Half-way between Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace, this hotel couldn't be in a better location. A short walk from the train station and close to 100's of shops, bars and restaurants. Staff were friendly and able to tell us of many tours and events. Recommended.

    Vaue for money”

    Location is good, hardly 5mins walk to the Royal Mile. Has a grocery store right across the entrance which is owned by a cute Pakistani old uncle. Ample options for buffet breakfast. Hot running water with pressure and decent size room/washroom. Strongly recommended.
