Great fade for Edinburgh weekend
Room and breakfast excellent. Bar poor due to change of part of bar to champagne bar with poor advertising. Also main bar no longer has signs on beer pumps, which is pretentious. Was a great bar before the changes.

Wonderful
The staff went out of their way to make this a truly memorable stay to celebrate our honeymoon. Everything was already great but they've topped themselves. We feel thoroughly spoilt and not ready to go home!
