Good breakfast on the restaurant but a though a bit more variety would have been...More

Decided to stop a night in Edinburgh after years of merely changing trains here. It was festival time so expected to pay more for accommodation, but this very Central - only a couple of hundred metres from Waverley Station - hotel was very reasonable. Not...More
Arrived to find the single room I booked online having almost no window and facing an inner shaft so absolutely no light. A very damp, dark and sad little room. The receptionist was helpful anyway and with some moving around found a way to upgrade...More

Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
Depends on the booking. I booked through a booking site and could choose between two prices - one with breakfast included and one without.
Breakfast there is really good though, and well worth the price.
