Itison voucher used, reasonable value although read the small print weekends when anyone realistically will use this is a hefty surplus. Lovely location and building. Standard double was not overly plush but adequate. Main gripe is the room was really cold, one electric storage heater didn't cut it even on full. Bathroom looked a little tired. On the plus side, staff were very professional, meal was nice and the bar area very smart. We would go again but in summer!

This used to be a fantastic hotel but this visit was not great. The rooms are looking tired and the maintenance seems to be poor. The lift door was broken and wouldn't close. The corridor on the first floor had an odd smell to it. The carpet in the room was marked, and the toilet door handle was hanging off. The bedroom walls and furniture were scuffed and marked and the bedside table draw was broken. There was no extract fan in the bathroom so the whole room turned into a sauna when the shower was used. Room overlooked a service area so lots of noise from staff shouting at each other. Service in the bar was excellent but be warned, its Edinburgh hotel prices. There's loads of nice bars around the hotel to pick from. Evening meal in the restaurant was excellent. Staff very friendly and polite although the service was a little intrusive (was asked 6 times if the food was okay). Breakfast is very poor. We sent back the hot food because it was cold and had clearly been batch cooked some time ago. Thankfully this was taken off our bill by the excellent reception staff. Given the prices charged here I was expecting a much better experience.
