                                  The staff are the best staff , you can see the ethos of the hotel is still person centred the food is excellent, bar is great, cocktails are really nice. The hole experience is worth it.

                                  Very good location. Very central and near to major tourist attrations.

                                  The bathroom is a major disaster. The grouting is black & dirty looking. The toilet bowl is also very stained and dirty looking, very unlike a so called 5-star hotel. There is absolutely no way that you will consider having a bath. The concierge is also quite unfriendly and is "nice" only after they get their tips. The current trend in the world is now for the provision of WiFi in all areas. Even though there is suppose to be Wi Fi in the common areas, the signal strength is too weak to be of any use.

                                  The attention to detail shown by the staff and the organisation of amenities and services. Very friendly and helpful -beautifully decorated and welcoming. The location was right on the main shopping street and walking distance to the attractions,restaurants,bus tours and the train station.

                                  no complaints!! Everything was perfect and we are very hard to please-very high standards for service.

                                  The hotel was the embodiment of class, elegance and luxury but unlike other hotels in its class (eg The Merrion in Dublin) managed to combine these qualities with the appropriate level of warmth and friendliness. The concierge and reception staff were faultless in their knowledge and happy-to-assist attitude. Breakfast was superb as was dinner in Number One. As I am pregnant I had requested a quiet room and was not disappointed. Our room was incredibly quiet and you would never have known you were in a fantastic city centre location. The bed was so comfortable we had the best nights' sleep in a long while and the bath was huge. All the little touches were much appreciated such as the complimentary tea / coffee making facilities (on request), the free morning newpaper, the turn-down service and the premium quality toiletries (ren organics). We found the car drop-off and collection service especially useful. As it was a special ocasion for us we treated ourselves to massages at the hotel Spa which were an amazing experience. I can't imagine going to Edinburgh and staying anywhere else.

                                  The super friendly staff and the restaurant food. We also really appreciated being told we were given an up grade.

                                  We enjoyed the afternoon tea and the atmosphere was excellent, staff very friendly but the total experience was only average compared to the many other afternoon teas we have experienced in London. I think the staff should at least offer to refill the plates even if we say we don't want any more.

                                  The suite on the 5th floor had a wonderful view towards the castle and the old town. Unbeatable location at the begin of princess street and opposite the royal mile.

                                  There were many cigarette butts outside the window. A little loud at night.

                                  My husband and I enjoyed the Bollinger Bar and the gym and the wonderful Scottish gentlemen minding the entrance. Everyone was very nice and the location is fantastic.

                                  They nickel and dime you to death. Parking was very expensive, Internet was 15 pounds a day and there was no coffee in the room. Also, the gym equipment needs some maintenance.

                                  Everything, especially the concierge called Frank who was extremely helpful.

                                  the location and the city itself, the staff were outstanding, very friendly , extremely helpful

                                  In the room,the furniture was shabby and very worn, the small sofa's seat was suck in and looked very tired.Chairs had dings on the legs. The furnishings and decor all looked old, worn and not well maintained! In the halls, we noticed the moldings were chipped and in need of paint, as were the walls!

                                  Service and attention throughout was excellent. rooms very clean and cleaned twice a day. Restaurants and spa/gym in hotel top notch.Every guest made to feel special and staff prepared to go extra mile for you. The location cannot be beaten-- its close to transport, the sights and main shopping centres. The hotel has a historical reputation and we can recommend unreservedly.

                                  Slightly disappointed with the packed picnic they provided for our journey home. Lacked some of the advertised items and did not represent value for money.
