Great hotel with great location
This was our last day in Scotland and the hotel was perfect, we picked it for location but once we saw our room, it became the first day to sit down and relax.

Edinburgh in August
Booked this hotel because states it has air conditioning in the room. When we arrived, the hotel staff informed us there is no air conditioning in any of the rooms. I contacted, but still see this listed on the website. We left the windows open for cool air, but due to the location of the hotel, it was very noisy throughout the night. Hotel staff was courteous, polite, and helpful in booking tours during out stay. Do not eat breakfast at the hotel, much better tasting & affordable breakfast options within walking distance of the hotel. The staff was great & made our stay pleasant.

Not a 5-Star Hotel
Everyone at the hotel – the people who worked in reception to restaurant staff were very friendly and warm. Especially Ivor, the concierge. The food in the restaurant was also superb. The reason I rated the hotel so low is because we had a problem with the room that was not handled well -- certainly not even handled as well for a 3 star hotel. Our room had a terrible odor – like a sewer – and the carpet was damp in the front of the room. I complained about this 3 times during the two nights that we were there and also at our departure. The most that was done were bathroom towels placed on the damp carpet and then after sterner complaints – some harsh chemicals were used on the carpet but now the room just smelled more like chemicals rather than sewage, -- but the foul odor was still there! No one in management ever checked in with us – even though one of the hotel staff told me he could smell the odor, as well, even though he had a cold! We had 2 nights sleeping with the window open (making the room noisy and requiring us to put in ear plugs to sleep) and we kept the room fan on for some circulation (hotel rooms do not have A/C). All this for $600+ a night! If you don't mind this kind of treatment for this kind of price - this is your hotel. However, if you want better service when something goes wrong, stay clear of this "5-star" (ahem) hotel.
