Stayed at this Hotel on a 2 night coach break to visit the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. The rooms were spacious and, in most respects, clean. There was a slight cleanliness issue in one of the rooms, but this was quickly and efficiently dealt with, so top marks for that. Our party had four rooms, of which three were stiflingly, unbearably hot, but the Hotel provided room fans.
The building is a converted Convent, with certain parts having been built in the 1540's, so it has an interesting layout - two or three steps every now and again, with lots of twists and turns in the corridors. There is a lift, which is convenient for most rooms.
There is an excellent fitness centre/gymnasium; a good sized swimming pool and a jacuzzi poolside. The only criticism here is with the Ladies' changing room - it's a lovely big area with lots of doors, but no notices to say which way to the pool; we nearly found ourselves wandering back into the Hotel in our (dry) swimwear!!!
The staff throughout were excellent - friendly, professional and efficient.
All in all, apart from the over-heating problem, a good night's sleep in comfortable beds and with reasonable food for breakfast and dinner. We would stay at this Hotel again. less

Thank you for your extensive review of your recent stay. I am delighted that you enjoyed youir stay with us.
At present there is no background central heating on in any bedrooms, most rooms have heating in the room that they can put on if they wish. So the stifling heat in the rooms is purely a factor of Scotlands reknowned tropical climate.
Just to correct one minor point, the hotels original building dates back to 1840s not 1540s. Prior to being a farmstead it was an orchard and market garden.
I have pointed out your comments regarding signage to our leisure management to look into.
We hope that we can have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the future
