    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The location is the best possible, steps away from the Royal Mile, Princes Street Garden, and Georgian New Town. Castle view rooms allow you to see the castle in different light all day and lit at night as well. And the Peacock Alley Lounge is a wonderful spot for tea or a drink.
