We were part of a large group of people who travelled to Edinburgh to spend a couple of nights celebrating a friends 50th birthday. About 16 of us stayed here with others staying at other hotels in the Leith area.
6 of us arrived around 12.30 on Saturday. Went in to bar and had a round. Next round they ran out of Guinness and did not know if they would be getting any more?
Rooms very colourful but very basic and very small, not even a small table and chair. No biscuits, limited tea and coffee. Toilet seat loose and sink very slow to drain away. French window to juliet balcony would not shut properly. TV very old style with limited channels. I must say the bed was very comfortable
Location is excellent and parking is free although it is a little confusing which door should be used to enter the hotel.
The only food we had in the hotel was breakfast and it was diabolical. The "Big Mal Breakfast" consisted of 1-Sausage (Very well pre-cooked), 1-Rasher of part cooked bacon, 1-small slice of black pudding, 1-well boiled medium sized mushroom,1/2 a burnt tomato and a fried egg that was unbelievably crispay around the edge whilst not being fully cooked in the middle. I asked for extra toast as it was needed. Sauce had to be requested and came in the original bottle. The staff in the Bistro were unbelievably miserable and not welcoming at all
