How to Get There
There was a lot to like about this hotel. Its location relative to the Haymarket train station is great, and there are many excellent restaurants and things to do nearby. We were treated very well by the staff (mostly, more on that in a moment). The breakfast was good, small but high quality. The room itself was mostly comfortable...
Except that the toilet ran. A lot. Loudly. And despite many attempts to get help from management, it never got fixed. In addition, the way that the toilet ran, it slowly leaked water, meaning that the bathroom floor around the toilet was always wet when we returned back to the room.
Apparently, management entered the room to try to fix the problem. However, the problem would seemingly go away after flushing the toilet, only to reappear about a minute later after the tank filled. So it seems what happened is they tried something, flushed the toilet, didn't hear the problem, and left. That's despite us telling them that the problem "mutes" itself for a minute or two then comes back. We had to keep the door closed at all times just to keep the running noise down, which meant we couldn't dry our clothes. And, of course, it wasted water.
Overall, I really want to give the hotel a better review, as there was a lot to like. But this really should have been fixed quickly, not still a problem after three days.
Unfortunately the pictures on the website do not show the rooms properly. And the cleanliness does not match today’s standards. What a pity. I wouldn’t choose it again.
The hotel needs a significant renovation.
The staff was very kind and polite. The quality of breakfast was good with a good choice of different products. Related to price ok the room was sufficient. You can reach the Royal Mile by a walk of 10 minutes. And of course Edinburgh is fascinating...
