Hidden gem”

This is a real hidden gem in a quiet part of the magnificent 18th century Georgian New Town of Edinburgh. Lovely spacious room with beautiful, antique furniture & tasteful, classy decor - luxurious, comfortable bed. Double window view over private park to which we would have had access had we not been so busy exploring this world class city. Conveniently located for a wide selection of New Town restaurants. Staff were welcoming, polite, friendly and very helpful - looked after our luggage for us as we were getting a late train back to Yorkshire. Generous portions of coffee, tea, sugar, milk & biscuits in the room. Lovely bathroom. Superb breakfast. All in all - just perfect!

Great Location & Value ”

The hotel has a interesting history and warm feel a home away from home. A nice little in-house bar and multiple lounge areas. The rooms were a good size although our room was below street level with limited natural light, I would recommend asking for a room on the upper levels. The staff were great and secured expensive items that were left behind for a week to enable us to pickup on our departure out of Edinburgh. The location is fantastic easy walking to the centre and other main attractions. The best value for money in our trip to Scotland.

Our over night experience was great. The room was a bit small but why have a big room if you're sleeping in it. There was a blind for the window but the "front" curtain was pulled up and just for show. So we couldn't use it to block out the street light. Having said that, would we rebook? Yes, without hesitation Dining room very classic; wood panelling etc. Wanted to book for lunch but the main dining room is only available for members and their guests which is a shame because the menu looked very good.
