    Perfect

    It was a bit confusing as the hotel (a building on a campus) changed names between my booking and arrival. Parking was tricky as there were literally 2 spaces available after driving all over campus to find one (and the one we chose turned out to not be the proper space...) due to construction blocking use of the nearby lot. After all that, the stay was wonderful - lovely nature, gardens and architecture on campus; the room was extremely nice with a good selection of hot beverages; the location is right below Arthur's Seat with a walk to begin the Royal Mile at Holyrood Palace; the breakfast was delicious (try the haggis - it's delicious!) with buffet and hot food included; and the desk attendant was very helpful to two weary travellers and directed us to the convenient Salisbury Arms for a delicious dinner and atmosphere.

      Lovely staff, so friendly, and will answer any question you have! Wonderful food, view, and the location is close to a city bus to take you to town, and the best part, it’s right next to Arthur’s Seat!

          Excellent

          A comfortable hotel that is a little out of the centre of town.
