Pleasant stay in comfortable hotel
I was very pleased with my experience at The Principal. My room was comfortable, quiet (as requested), and the hotel was in a convenient location. What really made The Principal stand out was its staff: the front desk, restaurant staff, and concierge were unfailingly friendly and helpful.

The room was small (I think I may have booked a 'single' room) but it was nevertheless a beautiful hotel and a comfortable room in an excellent location.

Hotel staff were helpful and efficient. Room was small but comfortable. Hotel location is good, no nearby parking but that is the case for all of central Edinburgh.

Weekend away
Spent a lovely weekend up in Edinburgh in July 2018. The location is central and we asked to Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile and Holyrood. Lots of restaurants and cafes. The service especially the concierge Ansten were brilliant. The room size was cosier than expected otherwise a great stay overall!
