Service makes the difference!
Reviewed 2 days ago

I would have given this review a 4.5 if I could. I rounded up to a 5* because the bad points aren't the hotel's fault and they worked to overcome the problems. First the negative: because of the roadworks in front of the hotel, unloading meant double-parking down the street at a taxi rank and getting the luggage from there to Reception. We had a car and parking was not only expensive but required a bit of a walk. Now the positive: hotel staff coordinated over the phone to meet us with a luggage trolley at the taxi rank upon arrival. On departure a staff member walked our luggage to the carpark.

The hotel itself is very comfortable and has an excellent breakfast. The location is very central with theatre nearby and some very good restaurants within walking distance. It has a cool small bar with an excellent selection of whiskies. It is situated on the room level so not subject to passing trade. It is located right next to the Omni Center which has loads of eateries. Although none of these were recommended by hotel staff we found a quick, cheap breakfast at The Playfair (JD Wetherspoon). The Glasshouse was a fairly short hop via Uber to Edinburgh Castle to start our sightseeing day.

Great hotel - shame about gym charges
Reviewed 2 days ago

Absolutely loved hotel room - beautiful, clean and comfortable.
Not so happy about paying to use the gym - for a 5* hotel, would expect to be given passes for free.

But other than that - very happy. Will visit again

I stayed in a suite room in this hotel and it was amazing. One of the best choices in Edinburgh. Amazing balcony, view, staff, everything. I was very impressed. Right in the city centre, very good location. Highly recommended!

The best picnic ever
Reviewed 1 week ago

I had the most pleasurable treat of a picnic, unfortunately the weather dictated we ate inside, however on a sunnier day, the rooftop location would be perfect. We received a picnic basket which included a rug, and the most amazing selection of picnic food you could wish for. It was all packed in cardboard boxes that were secured with red and white gingham ribbon. It suited me better than most afternoon teas as it was mostly savoury, but there was sweet as well. This was accompanied by cocktails and the most tentative service.
