    Friendly staff, good breakfast, charming & traditional. Excellent location. My sister & I stayed for 2 nights celebrating our birthday. We were very pleased to receive a free upgrade to a room with an amazing view of the castle.

    Went for afternoon tea and was really pleased with the selection of choices of sandwiches that you could have. We did wait a little while after ordering but when it came you could tell it was all freshly made and very tasty for the cost....More

    Princes Street and Gardens
    Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
    is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
    But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
    are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
    look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
    beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
    Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
    town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
