I absolutely love this small luxury hotel. The rooms are really nice and the breakfast is amazing. I would highly recommend this hotel if you don’t mind spending a little extra on where you’re staying. The hotel is also nicely located with walking distance to all the main tourist attractions such as Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street Park.

What a stunningly beautiful hotel. The most perfect place we’ve ever stayed!!! Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in the Jacuzzi Suite. Personalised card with our names on it in our room. Fantastic food. Welcoming and professional staff. Can’t wait to stay again. 10/10


I still check out their Instagram daily just for the reminder of how awesome this hotel is. Our travel agent picked this and it's the only place I want to stay when we travel back to Edinburgh. Seriously, this hotel is perfect.
