    Firstly, we were upgraded to a 4 Poster rooom - which was a lovely surprise!! I thought the ambience of the Hotel was absolutely brilliant. All of the staff we met had a smile on their face & were very professional. In fact, I was so impressed I'm thinking of joining the Club!! Many thanks & keep up the good work. A Taylor

    Room was down in basement but dont let that put you off! It was quiet,roomy,and even had kitchenette. Very clean and housekeeping standards high. Excellent staff who were very friendly and helpful. Location about 8mins walk from station but in quiet area. Couldnt have picked a better hotel and will definitely recommend it to friends!!

    Very good

    We stayed in the anex at the rear of the hotel. The room was small but very quiet. There was a wedding party at the hotel on the first night which went on till quite late but thankfully our room was far enough away not to be effected by the noise. The breakfast was very good with choices for every taste at no extra cost.

    Everything about the hotel was fine.

    Old english style in the center of the city, big room for UK:) good breakfast, cozy club rooms, recomend to visit

    Exceptional

    Location and atmosphere of the club, friendly and helpful staff combined with a spacy room and a very satisfying breakfast make this the perfect base for a city break to Edinburgh.

    There is a "jacket and tie" dress code for the restaurant. Although it is not enforced for breakfast, it would have been helpful to have known in advance. The early supper and dinner menu did look intriguing, but our travel wardrobe unfortunately did not include the necessary dress items.

    Fabulous

    We like the close proximity to the main shopping centre of Edinburgh. We also like the area that it is situated in.

    As we become older we see a need for a lift in the building. That may be iunder review.

    Guest rating

    televisions not working in my room, apparantly in none of the other rooms either. i was advised to watch the tv in the bar which was a very poor quality picture. An apology was not forthcoming from receptionist at all. Wi-fi signal in room was very poor and kept dropping out. Way too pricey for this standard of hotel

    good access for city centre
