    There was a total of three rooms which my family and I occupied and all of my family members enjoyed and appreciated the cleanliness of the rooms. The toiletries provided in the bathrooms were just great. The breakfast spread was good. All I and my family members have to say is that your hotel is just a very nice place to stay.

    No comment nor anything which we dislike.

    Good

    We stayed here for two nights while we took part in the Edinburgh 10k. The hotel was ideal distance from the start and finish. we enjoyed the relaxing swimming pool, sauna and steam room after the race. The room was comfortable, lovely big telly, close to the station, friendly staff and within close distance of most sights.

    There was no view only a wall. The shower water went all over the bathroom floor and did not drain away.

    On arrival we were complementary upgraded to a suit which was fantastic, we enjoyed our stay so much we are planning on returning in October for my partners birthday. The room wasn't ready when we were due to check in but we were given complementary drinks in the bar and was treated very well by polite staff. The pool area is also very nice.
