Visited this hotel last week. It seems to have changed owners. Found the staff were clueless, it’s like going into one of those G1 units. No focus on training or any product knowledge. Quite poor for such grand surroundings.More

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

My room description said it had an electric kettle. For life of me I couldn't find it but I was ok with that. I was more concerned trying to get a fan in the room. I stayed there in July during the heat wave and the hotel rooms are not air conditioned. Being on the 6th floor, it got awfully stuffy and hot so hot tea or coffee was last thing my mind.
Don’t know but when we were there it didn’t affect us as it was the second floor that was being refurbished and we were on the 4th. Suggest you call the hotel and ask as I am sure they will have other rooms on other floors... More
