My other half booked this as a surprise for me so that we could enjoy a night out in Edinburgh for my birthday treat. I read the reviews and was a little worried...................but I was very pleasantly surprised!
I was a little concerned when we were directed to the accomodation across the road from the main reception and the tiny lift to our floor gave us a bit of a giggle - then the walk to our room along the VERY creaky corridors made me quite anxious! But the room was spacious, tastefully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The room overlooked the main road on the second floor on the corner of the hotel (sorry I can't remember the room number!). The view from the room was very nice and there was no traffic noise at all which led to a peaceful nights sleep.
Breakfast was great and the waiter came to ask us if we would like to go and have anything else from the buffet before they stopped serving - which was thoughtful. The only thing I would suggest would be the additon of poached eggs to the selection but that's just my preference. The haggis for breakfast was a first for me - but was actually devine!
Staff were very helpful and friendly and I would stay here rather than the Caledonian down the road (see my review for that hotel) because it was a far better quality experience.
