I found this to be a cosy friendly Hotel, on a lovely Victorian terrace. There are open views to the front towards extensive public gardens.
I had a single room (number 15) with a double bed, wardrobe, dressing table, TV and a wash basin and central heating radiator. From the window was a pleasant view of the hotel garden heading up Calton Hill.
The bathroom for this room is just down the corridor. This bathroom is for room 15 only and is not shared. It is newly appointed with modern furnishings, shampoos / shower gel and nice white towels. WARNING: THE SHOWER HAS A FOLDING ENTRANCE DOOR WHICH ALLOWS LIMITED ACCESS. Contact the Hotel for details as this could cause embarrassment if encountered to late (not a problem for yours truly).
Breakfast is served in the spacious reception rooms on the ground floor. I had the full Scottish each day, preceded with cereals & fruit juice, and finished off with toast & preserves.
The Hotel was ideally located for my requirements as I wanted to visit Holrood House & The Parliament Buildings, and also climb to King Authurs Seat. All of this within 1/2 mile of the Hotel.
I would definitely use this Hotel if in this area in the future.
Thank You to All of the staff I met.
