Lovely hotel with friendly staff. Breakfast was very good with a great selection of food available. Our room was on two floors, lounge on first, bedroom and bathroom on second. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The old negative being that there...More

I signed up and pre-paid for a "Diamond" membership, one of the premium memberships to the spa (at a premium price). I used the gym regularly for a couple of months and thought it was okay, although some of the perqs that were supposed to...More

This must have one of the best pools I've tried because it's refreshingly free from chlorine. Most health clubs have pools full of chlorine while this one is oxygenated which means it is really refreshing. The décor of the pool area is stylish to boot....More

I rang to ask about joining the spa and saw that I could get a free night's stay every three months and rang to confirm and the conditions seemed quite generous in the gym facilities too with free bottle of water and free extra towels....More

Poor service on arrival. Instructed to sign in and thrown a couple of threadbare towels. No robes for us. Why? Many lockers faulty. Gym and spa very dated. Jacuzzi far too hot. Sauna and steam room poor and tropical shower a joke. Pool ok. Loungers...More

Old Town
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

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
