Spacious room with a castle view. Staff was friendly and knowledge, breakfast buffet was good. There’s a pool and a spa on site as well. Location is great, just a few minutes from Princes Street.

In some hotels, it's all about the view, in others its the rooms, yet others will rave about their facilities. At the Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa, they offer a combination of all of the above and more.

Let's start at the top! There's the award-winning spa, Escape at One. A stunning roof-top hydropool with indoor and outdoor areas where you can stand under the scented tropical rainfall shower and then there's the Laconium and Tepidarium where a sequence of heat and water experiences simultaneously heat and cool the body. Guests enjoy access to all of these facilities for £30 per person.

Moving down to the 7th floor, you'll find the Club rooms and lounge where you can indulge in tea, coffees and snacks and beverages and canapes. The lounge is quietly secluded and comfortable offering an ideal place to unwind.

For those who have to work, there's unlimited Wi Fi.

The Suites offer complimentary access to the Spa alongside a 42"TV in the lounge area and a 32"TV in the bedroom.

With Edinburgh Castle on your doorstep, you'd be wise to book a room facing onto this stunning view. The newly-revamped rooms are not overdone instead they have chosen a subtle-Scottish theme throughout using texture and textiles to get across a feeling of warmth and comfort.

Perhaps my favourite area was the entrance with its vibrantly decorated purple velvet couches and lime green hued accents, a rather pleasant shock to the system and a daring verge away from the corporate world.

I stayed here for a week for work and was surprised at how nice the hotel was. It's modern and has nice little Scottish touches. The rooms are nice and many of them have a castle view. My favorite aspects of the hotel are the gym (all TechnoGym equipment, doubles as a public gym so it's really nice) and the spa. I didn't get a massage but the saunas (there are 5!) and the ginormous hot tub & pool are just ridiculously awesome. It's worth it to get a day pass to use the saunas alone. I should probably write a separate review for the spa but won't find many like it, not even in Vegas.

The hotel is well located, right across from Edinburgh Castle and close to Princes Street and Grassmarket Street. There are good restaurants all around, including Kampai Sushi (across the street and down a little side street), which was a huge find. I'd definitely choose to stay there again if the opportunity arises.

Great hotel and it's close to downtown about 3 or 4 miles. The bus stops right next to the hotel. Downtown is great the castle is right there as well as all the restaurants. But to get the real feel of Scotland get a few miles away from downtown and you will find great spots.
