absolutely wonderful stay
I cannot say enough good about the service we received during our stay. We had one little glitch the first morning there in the restaurant, that now seems ridiculous to bring up. The staff of this hotel took exceptional care of us and paid attention to details that exceeded our expectation. My daughter who was studying abroad in Edinburgh liked the fudge at the front desk (served in the evening), one night it wasn't there and when we got back to our room, someone had delivered a small plate to our room. Kenny (from Skye) made a special effort bring shortbread cookies when we came in one night. From the front desk, to the conceriege to housekeeping..perfect. it was like home away from home.

Best hotel in Edinburgh
This is one of the finest hotels we have ever experienced. We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for world-class service and a beautiful well-maintained building. Having stayed at another five star hotel in Edinburgh, we can say with certainty to this hotel is very well-managed, the staff is extremely polite and helpful, and the atmosphere it's a combination of old world charm and the modern luxuries you would expect at a five-star property. We will definitely stay at this hotel again when we return to Edinburgh.

Great hotel but don't disappoint from the start
I really hate it when the room type you booked is not given to you at check in. I did not book the standard but instead a few steps up to deluxe. Read both this site and hotel website with room description. The room given to us on arrival was not as pictured or described. Serveral phones calls and finally a call from my boss and then and only then did we get the key to a room as pictured on site. First 90 minutes of our stay was wasted for no reason. Hotel should exceed guest expectations at this star level, not attempt to meet or deny. Many explanations were given as to why our original room was different. But in explaining to hotel that if the room given was superior to that booked and pictured -- no problem. But to assign a room less than that booked was not acceptable. Regardless after room mix up....hotel was great!

A great first hotel in Edinburgh
With two major flights arriving Edinburgh Airport from the USA at 7:25 a.m., one would think luxury hotels would accommodate early check-in. However, because of the demand for the luxury rooms facing the castle, one has to wait until 3:00 pm to check in. We were so exhausted from our long trip that we asked for a temp guest room to rest until our rooms were ready. Next time, we will book our arrival for the night before. In spite of our problems checking in, the hotel staff is excellent and caters to the guests.
