    Was a very last minute booking and the location was close enough to the city centre to allow for a walk or short taxi ride

    The gentleman at reception did not greet us in any way, only to confirm our names for the reservation. He then tried to charge us more than the actual room rate which was only stopped when queried. For dinner they advertise that they have a "Sister restaurant" who would deliver a set meal for 2, we took advantage of this, but when the delivery arrived the price was wrong and the hotel wanted nothing to do with it. The room itself had a faulty radiator that rattled and made noise all night, there seemed to be a ventilation system that also came on all night. The TV didn't work, they started hoovering outside the door at 9am and breakfast was merely a few bowls of cereal and some bread for toast.. not the most pleasant experience

    The decor is very unusual and the view was great

    The bed was extremely sqeaky and uncorfortable. It made so much noise when you moved, it woke me up several times. The fire alarm went of several times in the morning.

    Should have a better class of breakfast

    The Indian theme was a nice change from the standard hotel.

    No bar area for drinks or a meal/snack.

  • Family with children

    The Indian decor and theme was good.

    I would have liked the breakfast to be a full English breakfast or typically Indian breakfast in an hotel with an Indian decor and theme. The hotel had no cooking facilities, so food had to be ordered from their restaurant 5 miles away and they added delivery charges to the orders from the hotel. Delivery charges should not be added if the orders are from their own hotel.

    I was very impressed with the room, which had a large 4 poster bed and a sewcond single bed. The en-suite was very nice.

    It is clean, comfortable room and very near Haymarket rail station. Staff very friendly. Breakfast even basic, but I like it.

    The Bell in the front door of the hotel may not working. The front door of the hotel was locked in one of the raining morning, my husband and I press more than 5 times but no one open the door for us.

    I though the room was quite large and clean, and loved the decoration. also very close the main centre.

    I though the breakfast was very basic, and not very fresh.

  • Couple

    Good sized room, & decent bath. The hotel was rather 'quirky' which was somewhat endearing.

    The only thing I would say is that I was pleased I had got the room at half price, I felt it was worth this for the stay~the place was a little basic~had I paid the full price I think I would have been dissapointed.

    Charmingly old-fashioned, Indian-themed hotel. My room, "Jodphur," had an antique wooden canopy bed, antique furniture (including an ancient phone, that worked), & a nice view. Black & white photos from the days of the Raj line the hotel walls. I've stayed in many hotels in Edinburgh, including the Balmoral, & this is may favourite, because of its charm. It's a little bit out from the city centre, near Murrayfield stadium. Arriving by train, best to get off at Haymarket; turn left onto the main road & walk for about 10 mins - it's on your right. The airport bus also stops very close to it. Good price too - £50 on the night of a rugby international.

    Spacious rooms...

    a little bit too cold room and dust on the lamps.

  • Single
    7.4

    The hotel was quiet clean and the staff were helpful. It is only ten minutes walk from Murrayfield Stadium, so it is excellent for rugby fans.

    Nothing really. There is no restaurant and it is a longish walk to the main eating places, but that is not really any hardship.

    Indian decor.

    Lot of steps to climb to my room when I was already very tired.

  • Single

    Location was ideal for my purpose

    The central heating was extremely loud and distrupted my sleep

  • Older travelers

    Worst hotel we have ever stayed in!!

    We did not like the fact that the room was shabby, dirty, it smelt, the pipes created the most awful noise. That the reception phone next to the room rang all night, people going up and down the stairs were a constant noise.
