Affordable Family Run Hotel Sep 11, 2011
I stayed here in November 2009 for a long weekend. I took my mum for her birthday so wanted to stay somewhere traditional with some character. This met my expectations.

We had a great view of the castle from our bedroom which was beautiful at night. The room was very traditional, if a little old-fashioned but had all mod cons such as Wifi, hairdryer, tv, telephone and tourist information. The staff were also very helpful and booked the Ghost Tour for us over the phone for no extra charge.

The hotel is very central to everywhere in the city. I would recommend this and would be ideal for older couples and families.

Traditional hotel located opposite train station Jul 21, 2010
Nice traditional Hotel a short walk from the train station and with good views of Edinburgh (central area, inc. Scot Monument and Castle)

Nice hotel with basic needs met. Good buffet breakfast and nice views at the front of the hotel.

Wasn't impressed by the two single beds put together to make King. When complaining I was informed that all rooms were like that to accommodate varying needs, which I later found out to be a lie when the cleaners were cleaning the very room next to ours with a double in. Not keen on the gap in the middle of two singles.

Met needs, but wouldn't stay there again.
