I stayed at the hotel previously when it was The Roxburghe and was certainly of the opinion that investment was needed. Wow, what a transformation!!!. The bedrooms are luxurious and the shower is one of the best features. I stayed on the first floor and even though the hotel was busy, enjoyed a quiet evening and a great sleep. The new garden room in place of the old courtyard is an inspired decision and gives the hotel a real heart. The choice of local beers and quirky service (I was delivered an egg timer and specific instructions for my green tea) make this a special place. The staff were attentive and difficult to fault. The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square is now top of my list for Edinburgh hotels. I will definitely be back.
