The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. The A/C wasn't working very well, but otherwise a beautiful hotel. Super comfy beds and designer toiletries. The view out our window of Edinburgh Castle was breathtakingly beautiful.

Yes, there are a number of restaurants that are open for breakfast within 200 ft of the hotel. You can look them on Google map. We ate at a coffee house right next door and it was pretty good.
