Perfect stay in New Town section of Edinburgh.
Everything was excellent. Halls a bit shabby looking and difficult to find way back and forth to the room, but if you ignore that, the 3 night stay was wonderful. Great staff, large room with fabulous toiletries(- Elemis shampoo which is only available on line!) , comfortable beds, delicious , large buffet breakfast. Great location in New Town. Walked everywhere from here. Close to Waverly Station, Jenners Dept. Store( has a made in Scotland food section), lots of restaurants. Box of free snacks refreshed daily. Water in small refrigerator.

Nice hotel, great location.
Very nice hotel, excellent amenities, and great location. When we asked for service it was forthcoming, but wasn’t offered without asking. For example, the concierge desk was empty when we arrived and nobody offered to take our luggage to the room. The standard double room looks much later in the photos on the hotels.com website.

Great staff. Musty odor. Great location.
The room had an old musty, unpleasant odor (We stayed in the townhouse section). The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great location. Quiet. Breakfast was very good. Dinner was also excellent.
