    Very friendly staff who were happy to carry bags and give guided tour of the room etc. Bathroom was truly beautiful, nice fluffy White towels and gorgeous period features. Breakfast selection was very good, both the continental and cooked options were well presented with lots of variety. Good local produce on the menu. Fab location for visiting Edinburgh castle and the town, literally 30 yards out the main train station!

    The mattresses were very soft, making them almost uncomfortable. They do offer bed boards though (to apparently firm them up a little) as they have had comments regarding this before. Not enough milk offered for tea and coffee in your room every day, we ended up buying a pint and putting it in our mini fridge!

    The staff were possibly the most efficient and helpful I have encountered. Truly first class which I did not expect at the price we were paying. The communal areas are beautiful, the swimming pool is top drawer and the room was very nice. We had a sight problem with our rooms bed being damaged which was fixed immediately, on a sunday, while we popped out.

    An odd smell in our lift and on our floor but not in our room. I always think water should be complimentary.
