How to Get There
The room was beautiful and clean. Lot's of good facilities. Bed quite cozy. Super easy check in and check out. Very nice staff.
The shower was a mess. You'll flood the whole bathroom (and living room aswell if you are not very very careful) when you are not using at least 2 towels to stop it. But we had those problems in nearlly every shower in Scotland so far. So maybe we are used to a freaky German standard were the water must stay in the shower 🙃 Everything in the room was more about design than function.
We had a room with a window to the backyard where there were severeal nightclubs/bars so it was a bit loud at the night. We heard the pumping bass but it wasn't too loud for us. Just make sure if your ears are sensible it won't be a good choice for you.
Another night in Edinburgh. Was looking for something near Omni and was choice between here and glasshouse.
Well on arrival small reception and friendly receptionist. Who shows us to our room god I knew there be stairs but be prepared there loads we where on top floor would not like carrying luggage up. But it's a listed building. Now for the Room. They had scattered rose petals on bed which was a lovely touch. Room is big lovely comfortable bed. Lovely view and biggest shower ever lol.
But some bad points mostly down to design. For one thing radio not working well no sound. TV is temperamental prob needs replaced. Buttons and dials with no idea what for unless you play about to see with some with no use. No phone in room to call reception. Wallpaper coming away and light shade cracked some tiles in bathroom poorly done. Light above bed only one side working
Note to hotel more check on detail and would be higher score
If we'd rate this it be 6 out 10 and possibly 3 star
When we arrived from reading the reviews we were fine with carrying our luggage up stairs as we were on the 1st floor
We were staying in the loch shiel suite and on arrival we were happy with the suite , not the best we have stayed in but was ok
The down side was the fires did not work to which I was really looking forward to arriving back on a cold night to pop the fire on or have a bath with the fire lit in the bathroom
The bed was comfy apart from the base I did scrape my legs getting into bed from the base frame of the bed
Noise levels inside the room of course it’s a old building but getting up during the night to go to the bathroom the floorboards were really squeaky
Our first night as we were situated at the front of the hotel the noise levels outside of people shouting did wake us up numerous times , then somewhere like Tesco have a 6am delivery as you can hear the roll cages getting delivered and then there is currently road works outside which started not much after
We nearly did check out after the first night but thought it’s just 1 more night and have to admit the Monday night was a lot quieter to the Sunday night
Pros: the place is in a fantastic location, very central and very accessible. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. The place is very clean and very cosy. The room was Large, clean and very well stocked. Great view out over the north of the city. Huge shower, clean bathroom, large tv and comfy bed.
Cons: no lift. This place is not accessible at all if you're disabled. We were on the top floor which meant 3 flights of stairs. (Pro, the lovely staff helped us take our luggage up!). It is an absolute slog.
The shower is... interesting. Very clean, however awkwardly stylish. It is massive, possibly the biggest I've ever seen, but the "rain" style head is just silly overkill. It sprays water everywhere, leaking out onto the floor boards. It needs a screen!
That's about it for cons. Some other tiny issues were raised in person with staff that have no bearing on my rating or review. Overall, the place is quite luxurious for the price you pay. Would definitely stay here again.
Fantastic town house in the heart of the city.100 yards away from the Playhouse and lots of lovely places to eat and drink. Only 5 minutes walk to Waverley station. Room was was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. Staff on reception were friendly and helpful. No facility for breakfast however with so many great places to eat it was not a problem. Recommend this hotel and would definitely stay again.
