Wondeful greeting from staff even though we checked in at such a late hour at night, and with so much luggage. Accommodations were made to store all our luggage since we would only be staying for one night. Overall our experience surely is wonderful.

This hotel is centrally located and I was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go. The staff was friendly and helpful. My room was cozy and clean. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Edinburgh! I didn’t eat at the restaurant but the food smelled wonderful.
