Absolutely incredible trip ”

From the moment we arrived the staff made us all feel welcome and took extremely good care of us. The attention to detail on the smallest of things was noticed and being a business owner myself I know how much customer service matters. This hotel have went above and beyond for us and made us feel very special. We will definitely be back and the staff all working here a credit to the hotel and one another.

Disappointing ”

Our first time staying here and having stayed in other 5* Edinburgh hotels found it disappointing. The staff were lovely and could not be more helpful. The room was tired and in need of renovation, the bed was hard and uncomfortable. The spa facilities were not in full working order and the jacuzzi was warm. On a plus point the room was very quiet but unfortunately would not be looking to stay again.

I do not recommend this hotel”

Check-in was painful - total lack of customer care or focus. Dark, horrible little room. I paid top money and received 2 star treatment.
