Dear Gordon Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay during the 6 Nations Rugby match held in Edinburgh. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by your bedroom issue, following an investigation your original bedroom did have an issue with the electricity circuit which has now been repaired and I am pleased our reception team did accommodate in an alternative bedroom. I would like to thank you for your comments on late food options which I will review with our Head Chef. Kind Regards Andrea Paton, General Manager

Dear Sophie Thank you for your review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and the fantastic views over the city. I would like to apologise for the shortcomings in service when you mentioned the zip/link bed in your room, this is certainly not representative of the service we strive to provide our guests. Our Deluxe bedrooms are one of our most popular options and during the recent refurbishment some of the bedrooms were installed with zip/link beds to give additional flexibility to families staying with us. We do have some Deluxe bedrooms with King Beds and if you prefer please do not hesitate to request if you visit us again. Kind Regards Andrea Paton, General Manager
