          9.6

          Very clean and comfortable, good food, handy for the main shopping area's pleasant staff. single rooms with ensuite for guest's on there own are ideal,

          Very poor parking near hotel, in fact there was't any, unless you want to pay very high charges at a local car park.permit's for guests would be a good idea.

          I did not like the hotel at all

          the review in your website is not realistic next time I will not depend on your views in chossing a hotel to stay

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          The staff was outstanding. Peaches did a great job with breakfast.

          The matress was a tad hard, but otherwise fine.

        • Couple
          5.8

          Good and plentiful breakfast, staff was helpful and it's about a 15 minute walk to Castle Rock.

          It could definitely use some renovation. The room was slanted, the bed was okay at best and wallpaper was peeling off the walls. It seems it is the same it was 40 years ago and has not been updated since. As a young couple, we booked this hotel for our anniversary, but to be honest our hostel in the days before felt more luxurious (at less than a third of the price of Herald House).

        • Family with children
          7.8

          fair price in comparison to other options close to where we needed to be (castle) nice room, bunkbeds excellent

        • Group of friends
          5.8

          Stayed here at the beginning of July for one night as part of a hen party of 14. Good points are it's location is really good, 15-20 mins walk to Princess Street or the Royal Mile/Grass Market. Also in a quiet location, their is also a cash point on the corner of the street, and a Tesco express just around the corner. Staff are really friendly and very helpful, nothing is to much for them and the breakfast in the morning is pretty good too.

          Although the rooms are very clean, they are so dated and well walls and paintwork could do with being re-done. Room rates are very expensive for what it was, we had 2 tripples which were about £138 each and 4 doubles which were £108 each. I know Edinburgh is expensive, but for a 2 star rated hotel it is over priced. Wouldn't use this hotel again. Oh and the hotel bar (very loose term it was like a community center cafe) closes at about 9.00pm, we were sat having drinks before we went out and they actually put the shutter down whilst we were sat!!!

          convenient to bus stop and city center.

        • Single
          8.2

          The receptionist was friendly, helpful and efficient. The room was small but quiet, clean and comfortable, and had adequate hanging space. It had free coffee making facilities, but no free biscuits! Breakfast was as much as you wanted of things.

          Although wi-fi was available it wasn't free (I thought it was expensive).

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Great breakfasts.Very helpful staff and tourism brochures. Good location within walking distance of major attractions.

          Ensuite was very small and shower door swing made it relatively unssafe to exit the shower.

          Room and food - both basic. For example, very little choice at breadkfast, e.g. why no fresh fruit, or yoghurt, or decent bread?

          hotel staff were friendly and polite very helpful and knowledgable about attractions buses and shopping trips
