    Not much, it was difficult to get staff to resolve issues

    There was no water at all on the first evening -this did not seem to be a problem to staff

    Very good

    The ambiance of the hotel was lovely and the decor was superb. The breakfast was adequate but there was no other food on offer. It was more like a guest house than a hotel.

    The staff took two payments on my credit card, my room was not cleaned one day. Nothing major

    good location, walking distance to main street for shopping and visiting but yet in relaxing area away from traffic and noise; lovely building, spacious room with lots of light even if in the basement.

    unfortunately our room at the basement was nothing compared to the much nicer and luxurious rooms above: too much difference in rooms furbishing and finishing...just because we asked for family room, good for space but not for care and fittings of the room. At breakfast we had to ask for toasts, although buffet was quite complete.

    This hotel is fantastic...would recommend it completely. The room size was large, the complimentary breakfast was large, the hotel was full of character and looked great, and the staff couldn't be more helpful...also the position was better than expected in the city, not far for walking to Prince street and easy with the bus from the airport...and trains and buses to Glasgow, Stirling etc. It was a very lucky find which i will use again.

    None...oh yes, forgot to mention the old tv that didn't work in the room, but not important...wasn't in Edinburgh to watch tv

    Good

    Close to city and haymarket. Good & very helpful and pleasant staff. Good if you get a room in ground or 1 st floor. Good continental free breakfast, disappointing cooked breakfast.

    Very steep stairs, no lift, definitely not for elderly, family with young children and visitors with heavy luggage. Cooked breakfast prepared a day before and microwaved in the morning, not very good.
