Great location and quiet with no negative experiences apart from a room that that, probably like all others, needs refurbishment.

A lovely hotel in a great location. Breakfast was delicious eaten in a lovely setting with lovely views over Princes Street. However we felt a little let down by our allocated room, the bathroom had definitely seen better days and the view from the window of pipes and brickwork.

Stayed in better Accor Hotels

Michael W. Couples - 16/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Premises was a little tired. Room cleaning was somewhat lacking. No restocking of Coffee Tea etc. Swipe card continually refuse to work. I therefore regret to say that as an Accor Club Member having stayed in Hotels throughout France and beyond this Edinburgh Hotel is at the bottom of my list.

NNice stay

Great value for room, wine, and castle view. Furnishings in the room a bit dated but didn't take away from the overall stay.

Location brilliant. View from window of Princes Street was good. Very central. Hotel was clean but very warm in the room especially at night. Walls very thin and only got to sleep when neighbours went to sleep. Breakfast was good and the girl who served us was great. Would stay again.

location great / staff wonderful

R M. Couples - 15/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great location and hotel was clean . I have stayed in this hotel a few times as the location and ease to get to in public transport is so convenient . This time I was a little disappointed with a room that had no view I know I could have paid more to get one but when you read of people getting free upgrades and see for a lowere price a better deal if I had waited till the day I was to arrive then its a little disssapointing. Of course I will use the hotel again but will look more closely at deals.

Ok

Staff were all great, really helpful and friendly. Room was disappointing, clean but shabby. And very very hot, there was a fan but as there was only two sockets which were not near the bed it wasnt really much good, air conditioning would have been great, I did not get very much sleep. Breakfast was really good.but for the price, £172 for one night I don’t feel it was worth it sorry.

excellent stay

Mrs M. B. Couples - 15/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our first time away since December 2019 and it was excellent. We were delighted with our room, the covid awareness within the hotel was excellent. Not having a maidservice was no problem and the breakfast (plated) was excellent. Such a good experience for our first foray post lockdown. Thank you all. I am sure we will be back!!

Good overall, breakfast excellent, service excellent, the only thing that let the rating down was the room was not cleaned or replenished for our second day. No milk coffee tea or clean towels & shower gel

Hotel was well located near the centre. Had a great stay

We have stayed in this hotel before and will do so again. The location is absolutely ideal, just a short walk from Waverley Rail station and on Edinburghs main shopping street with easy access to the gardens and the royal mile. We have always found the rooms clean and tidy with tea/coffee making facilities in the room. We also have breakfast at the in house restaurant as we love the buffet style dining and think it is very good value for money. All in all a great place to stay and highly recommended.

Christmas Stay

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

494grahamc 24/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

It did not appear clear to several members of staff that we had booked the christmas package and we kept being asked if we had booked or how were we paying despite it being "all inclusive" - this was annoying. Service in the restaurant on Christmas Eve (evening meal) was very slow. Otherwise, the stay was good.
