Where to start... firstly the hotel is nothing like what is shown on the photographs, I am assuming that the room and bathroom shown on website are of the sole deluxe room in the hotel? The standard rooms are shabby, dark, with tired decor and...More
We booked in for an overnight stay in an executive suite and were delighted to have been upgraded to the honeymoon suite when we arrived. The receptionist couldn't have been more helpful :) our room was massive, huge bathroom with a lovely deep bath. It's...More
Some of the communal areas look a bit tired but the bed was comfortable & the room was clean. Staff were friendly & helpful. Breakfast buffet was adequate. Good location, near all the attractions but nice quiet location.
This was our fourth visit to this hotel. Prior to booking this time I searched the current reviews and noticed quite a few complaints, some of which I thought petty. I chose to book in again but with a few doubts in my mind, however...More

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
