Advantages: Location, room was always very warm
I recently stayed here just after Christmas, 27th - 29th December 2010. It was a last minute decision to go to Edinburgh and so the hotel room was booked only a few days before. As it was left until the last minute i was quite surprised that the room was only £59 a night including breakfast, booked directly on their website. It was called a 'winter warmer' special. This was for a standard double room.
The prices are now showing up as £75 and this is for the room only, no breakfast included. For breakfast included it is now £92 a night. As it goes for most hotels, it all depends on when you are booking and when you are booking the room for. I believe I got a bargain and would definitely go back for the winter warmer special price of £59 a night. However, I am not sure if I would go back for £92 a night, it seems a bit much for the hotel itself is not spectacular, but it was nice.
The hotel is situated on Jeffrey Street, a 5 minute walk from Princes Street and the Edinburgh Waverly railyway station, where I got off at. This was very convenient, especially if like me, you are going to be carrying heavy bags! It is not hard to find, no maps are needed, when you come out of the station it is across the road and a 2 minute walk (if that) down the street. It is also very convenient as the hotel brings you out onto The Royal Mile too. There is a tiny side street that cuts inbetween two of the shops on the Royal Mile, not even a minutes walk! The situation of the hotel is excellent and couldn't get any better. As I was often wanting to go up the Royal Mile for food as they have nice restaurants along there, and also a 5 minute walk from Princes Street where all of the shops are.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, one member of staff told me exactly hoe to get to Edinburgh zoo. There is a room cleaning service everyday if you wish. There is someone at the reception desk at all times and the bar and restaurant are open until 12 midnight. They show football matches in their bar in 3D, available to watch for free.
The breakfast is served in their restaurant from 7am - 10am. You choose what you would like and can go up for more if you wish. There is a wide selection to choose from so nobody will be left disappointed or hungry. There are plenty of places within a 5 minute walk from the hotel that serve breakfast, but I liked the breakfast served at the hotel and so if I ever go back, will happily pay extra for it again.
The standard double room was nice, always kept hot which was a must at this time of the year. It had a TV, hairdryer, Internet available (at an extra cost) and the bathroom was also very clean, had no complaints whatsoever. Extra pillows and quilts were available if needed however they were not as the room was always hot.
Overall I give this hotel 5 stars as I has no complaints and cannot fault it as its location is excellent, staff are very friendly and always happy to help and the food was nice. If i could get it for this price again then I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
Summary: A good, very clean hotel in an excellent location.
