“Not bad at all!!”
Reviewed 6 September 2011

Just stayed here with 4 other mates for lads weekend. When we arrived we were informed the family room was double booked but we were to be 'upgraded' into the Apartments. We went back out the hotel and in next door to the apartments and downstairs into what looked like a dungeon from outside!! We had nothing to fear though as it was perfect for a group of lads; 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a nice sitting room with tele and a kitchen. We chucked the bags in and off we went out. This was our 17th year to E'boro so we know the City very well and the hotel is in a perfect position, onto Princes St if you want shopping, Rose St if you want bars and George St if you want something a bit nicer. Copious amounts of Guinness later, we returned about 7pm to chill for a couple of hours with a cuppa and the tele in the sitting room, which was comfy. Out we went again for the evening to the pubs/smart bars round George St area and ended up in the Jamhouse nightclub which is less than 5 minutes walk away from the hotel. Returning at 3.30am there's an all night chippy on the corner of the hotel which suited us lads. We all slept soundly and missed breakfast so I can't comment on that. We made some bacon growlers in the room and relaxed for late breakfast with the papers. We had a late train so we left the bags in the hotel and off we went for a stroll round the gardens in front of the castle and a nice walk to the Grassmarket....just in time for the pubs to open at 12 where we enjoyed the Irish bars and a top up of Guinness. We picked the bags up late and got to the station for the train. We would defo stop here again as it suited our needs, so give it a try...you might just like it!!

This comfortable guest house provided my teenage daughter and myself with a friendly base from which to enjoy the nearby festival venues. The location is brilliant but quiet which means (coupled with the incredibly comfy beds) a good night's sleep. The staff were helpful and smiley and offered us clean (new) towels each day. We have already recommended it to friends and will definitely return when lucky enough to get back to Edinburgh. Oh. and the breakfast was fresh and varied too.

Room Tip: Room 25 is nice

we ceratainly only booked this hotel for its locality. their were four sharing it was cramped, no mirror, dirty curtains, and carpet, we complained to the manager who was very ignorant, and unresponsive, however the girls at brkfast were very helpful and nice, but the brkfast choice was not value for money, an egg was the only hot item available, along with tined fruite, no choice of tea ( early gray would have been nice ). A VERY TIRED HOTEL, WOULD RECOMEND..A GOOD OVERHAUL, A NEW BREAKFAST MENU, AND A CUSTOMER SERVICE COURSE FOR THE MANAGER , WHOM WE SAW ONCE, it was the tattoo week and i think that he was aware of this, hence the attitude.

Disgusting!! As a travelling salesman I have stayed in many Hotels and B & B's, this has got to be the worst ever!. A good breakfast sets you up for the day but all you get here is a bowl of cornflakes, an egg served on a saucer, not even any fruit juice. Basil Fawlty ran a far better establishment.
