                      Enjoyed the good service and facilities of a 5Star Hotel!

                      Das man nur umständlich ins Restaurant gelangen konnte.

                      From the minute we walked into the reception area we felt that we were valued customers. When we booked in the receptionist was friendly, polite and very knowledgeable regrading the area and hotel facilities. Our allocated room, although, not having a great view was splendid. The on-suite was spectacular with the different mood lighting options, large bath and modern appearance. The room was serviced daily to a exceptional standard. The Hotel is easily accessible from the airport if you want to use the 'airlink' bus service from the airport as it stops a mere 5 minutes walk away. We would not hesitate to recommend the hotel.

                      We loved the newly re-appointed suites which were quite simply stunning. We also noted the smaller towels, master light switch, body activated lighting in hallways and good shower but not power shower. All these things designed to be kinder to the environment without diminishing the guest experience. The best room we have had in Edinburgh without a doubt.

                      Breakfast - £20 per person extra and poor quality for such a big price. Would expect to have freshly cooked an served at table for the cost but this was a self service average buffet and not worth the money. Our room also had adjoining door room with noisy neighbours - would prefer to have a room without adjoining door or be given option at booking stage.

                      The room with castle view was a nice touch, and with the hotel situated within walking distance of whatever you want to do while you stay in Edinburgh, this suited our stay. Santini restaurant and One Spa with rooftop hydro pool was also worthy of our visit and would recommend to anyone staying to try out both.

                      You have to pay for the use of the One Spa facilities even though your a hotel guest. This didn't bother us to much as we booked Spa treatment and the use of the Spa facilities where included with this.

                      The excellent spa.

                      The lack of information about breakfasts. Could do with book giving hotel information instead of the tv which didnt give any help

                      I intended to write and give some feedback, so am delighted to have this opportunity. I can't praise the staff in this hotel enough. I regularly stay in hotels, mainly in London, for business. I was very impressed with the hotel staff who were friendly, relaxed and extremely helpful especially Laura on reception and Stuart the concierge. Huge difference from the rather worn out London Hotel scene. I would visit again and would highly recomend this Hotel. The club lounge was lovely and the chef's canapes - clearly handmade. .Highly recommended by this rather weary hotel boarder.

                      The only thing that was slightly disappointing was that one of the rooms in the thermal spa was not working - the warm air room? Not even a tepid breeze. To provide best value for money, would expect all rooms to be in tip top condition.

                      It is coveniently located if you are visiting Edinburgh for the first time and hence would regard a visit to Edinburgh Castle as a top priority. On top of that it is within easy reach of Princess Street and is still within a reasonable walking distance to Holyroodhouse Palace, though most will want to take the cab back to the hotel.

                      The decor and furnishings in the lobby/reception and first floor public areas are a bit old even though they provide an old world charm.The rooms however are modern and allows you to play with lights in order to provide you with the right hue to suit your temperament, but manipulating the lights can be a bit complicated.

                      Proximity to city centre & old experienced concierge.

                      Some of the international staff in both the reception and dining areas of the hotel had some difficulty understanding requests ( language) and I was overcharged at dinner - not something I would expect from a 5 star establishment.

                      I enjoyed my stay ememsly, however, I only had one night at the Sheraton. The hotel, staff and service was excellent and I would definately stay again.Thank you, J

                      My only criticism was that when I arrived, I was informed that although I had paid for my booking in full some months ago, that it had still to be taken. This was due to some fortnightly accounting that you do to reconcile you brokers. However, I found it very unprofessional as there is a reason why I chose to pay upfront.

                      The spa and the breakfast

                      The outside appearance is very decieving. Looks awful from outisde yet very luxurious inside.

                      I thought my room was wonderful; it had everything I could have wanted for a comfortable stay; the bed was big and really comfortable, the room was quiet and nicely decorated - I had a perfect stay and was very impressed with the bathroom in particular. I felt it was excellent value for money and would certainly stay at another Sheration Hotel again. Booked.net made it all very easy for me; always book all my hotels through Booked.net, it is a truly efficient company.

                      Was happy with everything.

                      Reasonable price. Very clean and confortable.

                      Fair service attitude if u r leisure traveller. I guess it target business traveller.
