The Frederick House Hotel, Edinburgh
48 hrs and so many whiskeys
The hotel was perfect for our needs - 10min walk to Edinburgh castle / Royal mile or Carton Hill. Friendly service and helpful with both ordering taxi and letting us hold one of the two rums we booked a little longer than checkout. Breakfast across the street went also well and can recommend the Rabbel !

Beware rooms at the top!
Nice hotel and friendly staff but top floor room didn't have enough water pressure for a hot shower, just a luke warm one. Could just be the room I had, but I'd be wary of the others on the 4th floor.

The Frederick is a lovely, old fashioned hotel that felt luxurious. It was very quiet and in a wonderful location. The staff was friendly and helpful.
