    Good

    Excellent location, easily accessible both by rail and car, very well located for all the major sights. Parking is extra, a bit steep, so we parked in the long stay car park of Waverley Station..Grand old building, opulent entrance.. Staff friendly and our extra request seen to quite quickly. Didn't eat there, so no comments on food. Breakfast way too expensive so family ate out (just across the street) for far less. Comfortable rooms, nice views, good bathroom with plenty of hot water.. Walls a bit thin, could hear my children quite well. Relieved it wasn't an enthusiastic couple... Pool lovely & warm, steam room great, other features weren't tried out.

    The hotel had the feel of having undergone a cost cutting excersise. Reception staff left us waiting for ages while they were having a chat with a minor employee. As we had arrived early, left suitcases in a safe area, but the chap's laksadeisical attitude did not fill us with confidence. Nothing happened though. No clear signeage where the swimming pool was. Pool is in the basement but that's no excuse for being so poorly lit, no chance to read. Decor is a bit unimaginative. Steam room & sauna lovely but minor step down undistingishable.In the rooms, tea making facilities stingy though toiletries nice. Windows hadn't been washed outside for ages, spoiled the view. Tv pixelated all the time. Having said all of that, we had a lovely time, just such a shame that considering the high star rating & cost, the staff & management could have done better.

    The hotel is in a perfect location in Edinburgh. The rest of the reviews are accurate about the noise. Even with a room in the back this hotel is very noisy and should no be considered by light sleepers but the bed is very comfortable. The excellent staff especially the concierge Mike is the best thing about this hotel. He seemed to sincerely try to do everything he could to make my stay pleasant.

    As stated by many, the hotel is in a noisy location.

    The room was spacious and perfectly equipped for a short stay in Edinburgh. The location was good and although i only spoke to one member of your staff, while checking in, she was most pleasant.

    Great location - 2 minutes walk from train station which was perfect for us! So central we walked everywhere! Staff are great - a receptionist went out of her way to get us a room as soon as we arrived despite us being early for check in.

    The location is excellent; at the heart of the city centre. Almost all the attractions are within easy walking distance. The staff was very courteous and helpful.

    The staff were lovely and very helpful, we stayed only 1 night as we were attending a wedding so location was perfect and it was right next to shops as well.

    The swimming pool was a huge disappointment we booked here for that reason and it was tiny. As it was a saturday it was quite busy so the sauna/jacuzzi etc were in constant use so we didnt stay very long.
