Fabulous 8.6 From 803 reviews

Fair 4.0
Beds too hard
This is a beautiful hotel with lovely staff but I couldn’t sleep as the beds are solid. Both beds in our room had mattress toppers on them but both were horrific. Room 506
Jon, gb1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Good and Bad.
Positives. Nice landmark hotel. Nicely decorated rooms, good service. Negatives. We got a room that was very noisy internally. Me and my partner had a bad nights sleep due to this. Would not return due to this. One minor cleaning point was the coffee/tea marks splatter on the wall.
Christopher, gb1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
It was amazing but some things is what makes the impression bad.To start of with the desks and the phone were full of dust,we don’t know if it was because of the virus and you had to isolate it for 14-days but other things were great.For example ,the fact that you need to have the card to use to lifts us extremely safe

Exceptional 10.0
Enjoyable stay
Spent one night on Sunday night. This was planned before the new restrictions came in to force and I am happy I decided to go ahead with our stay. The hotel was very quiet in terms of the number of guests. Staff were all very friendly and efficient. Our room was very clean. Our view looked out on to the Royal Mile and was nice and quiet in the evening. All measures are in place around the hotel and felt safe. Room service menu was available for dinner for reasonable cost and we ordered and ate this in the bar area. Breakfast time slot and hot options had to be booked the night before and can be eaten in the restaurant or delivered to the room for a charge. We enjoyed a full Scottish breakfast served to our table in the restaurant. Usual continental options were also available on a self service basis. Foods were wrapped for hygiene purposes. Overall, enjoyed our stay very much and the hotel has put a lot of effort into putting all the necessary precautions in place which meant we felt safe as well as comfortable.
