Fraud & Worst Experience

I booked this hotel 2.5 months in advance on Orbitz. Received confirmation shortly after directly from hotel. Arrived on my check in date only to find the hotel was closed, no signs, no indication of what was going on, and no notifications to me or Orbitz of the closure. I was out of my money paid in advance for 3 nights and no place to stay. I was mortified and traumatized to say the least. I walked 2 doors down to a Holiday Inn Express to ask what was going on and they informed me that they were MIA for the last week and all their guests were stopping by with the same baffled questions. They had no idea what was going on. How this is even possible for a hotel to treat its guests is beyond my understanding. Shame on them and their management to do this to a solo female guest in a strange country. This is by far the worst experience a traveler can experience. I don’t care if someone died, you have a staff that can reach out to confirmed guests to let them know so they can find other accommodations and not leave them stranded and take their money at the same time.

Lovely room and well placed

Stayed here for two nights. The hotel is directly opposite to the Playhouse and OMNI centre so really well placed for getting around.

We stayed in the Loch Lomond room which is massive. A nice large shower room with walk in rain shower. The room overlooks the road and even though we kept our window open road noise was not a problem . The room itself also boasted a decent TV, Fridge and Sky Tv.

We found on the last night the Bierkeller which is downstairs - a really nice sports bar serving good ales and decent value pub grub. You get 10 per cent discount if you stay at the hotel.

The only word of caution is the hotel has no lift so bear in mind that the upper floors have a significant number of stairs to climb in this typical Victorian House. The staff though will get your bags and take them to the room .

Staff are excellent and friendly too.

A tip for breakfast is to try a Taste of Italy just down from the Playhouse .

Noisy Seagulls

Hotel was in a good location for Edinburgh sights; staff was helpful when asked, but most not overly friendly; rooms were clean; no AC so windows were open all the time letting in flies and VERY noisy bird calls alllllllllllllll night long; no elevator so carried luggage up many stairs. Overall hotel was average.
