          Outstanding service with details I've never experienced before even at other boutique hotels. The hotel was conveniently located that suited us. The common areas were beautiful and our room was large with a superb bathroom. The bed was lovely and comfortable but my only small criticism is that the room was a little tired looking. Also the location of our room was subjected to street noise but as it was a Thursday the revellers left early, then it was quiet. Really lovely hotel overall though. Can't stress enough how great the staff were.

          Beautiful hotel with friendly, helpful staff

          Didn't like the fact we were given bath towels with large holes in them in our room.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Staff go above and beyond to greet all guests and tend to all needs and issues. Staff knowledgable about surroundings of hotel, recommending excellent restaurants etc. Nice touches, such as turn-down service when we returned from show next door at the Playhouse.

          The only gripe was a bill I received in the post a few days later, stating they had charged my credit card for wine from the minibar, for which we had never consumed! However, when I rang the hotel they were apologetic and stated that it would be refunded.

          The hotel was situated in the hearth of edinburgh. Parking was nearby and it was easy to walk to the hotel. The staff were brilliant, very friendly and couldn't do enough for you.

          Fantastic hotel, great room and staff, located at the centre of Edinburgh. The best feature was the wonderful roof garden.

          Extreamly friendly staff, in central location.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The roof top garden was relaxing and very well maintained. Our room led out onto it, lovely.

          Can't understand why there is not a manned bar and/or small restaurant in the hotel.

        • Couple
          9.6

          The room was lovely and the bed was so so comfy. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The only negative is that we could not stay more nights!
