Guests have great views of Edinburgh Castle from this Victorian-looking hotel that is located near plenty of Edinburgh attractions. Each guestroom is unique and some feature a large and elegant four-poster beds with couch or a small table or desk. Two twin bed, doubles or a king bed are also available. There is no elevator (or lift) in this hotel so keep that in mind when packing. There are two onsite restaurants, which each also feature a bar area for guests to enjoy. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at Allermuir Restaurant and the Buckstone Bistro, which welcomes families and children, serves pub grub-style lunch and dinner. Guests will find lots of shops, museums and theaters all nearby and families will want to check out Holyrood Palace too.

First off Hannah who worked in reception thank you for being so polite and helpful in my booking. Holy who worked in reception for answering my million questions and finding me a charger for my phone. Fraser the young barman sho served me drinks all night long! From check in to check out this stay was brilliant.
My room was 311 and they made it into a double for me its huge and it was immaculately clean! There were lots of stairs so not going to be suitable for those with mobility issues. Having said this the staff offered every single guest that checked in a hand with luggage.
Breakfast is lovely and buffet or continental and is served between 7am till 10am. If you've not booked breakfast in your booking you can pay in the morning. I would recommend signing up to become a member of the best western group as you'll get a discount on your booking. This hotel is about a 20 minute walk into morningside and bruntsfield. It took me 45 minutes to walk to Waverly train station.
I highly recommend this place to stay. Its a comfortable cosy place with such a nice relaxing atmosphere. The hotel also has parking available which is free!
I will be back here again. Thank you all for the fantastic helpful service.
My stay was greay from start to finish. My room and bathroom were warm and large and the bed was huge. I slept very well. Good buffet breakfast with wide choice of good quality food. I will definitely return to this hotel.
