    What more do you want when you find two small carafs with whisky and sherry in your room to welcome you at the Allison. Good idea and very friendly staff. Parkingplace in front of the door. Spacious and luxury room. Excellent breakfast and a beautiful garden at the rear (only to look at). From the hotel an immediate (every 5 mins) to the city-center.

    The shower was a bit small (or we are to big?)

    Sitting at the table in the bedroom with lovely view of the beautiful garden

    Between 6.30 and 6.45 we were woken by high pitched whistling water pipes as other guests were having a shower

    great breakfast, nice rooms some with views of Arthur's Seat, very friendly staff

    not very central (ca. 30 min walk but only 10 min by bus to the city centre with bus stop just at the opposite of the road)

    Fabulous

    The staff were very friendly and informative. Although this hotel is not in the centre of Edinburgh we were advised that buses ran from the stop outside every few minutes and this was indeed the case. The room had everything required for an overnight stay and the little decanters with whisky and sherry in them were a very nice touch. The breakfast was excellent.

    Would recommend. Huge comfy warm room. Excellent breakfast. Great selection of both hot food and fruits and juices. Nice touch to have the samples of whiskey and sherry in the rooms. Warms you up before heading out into the Edinburgh chill!! Regular bus stop across the road. No problem leaving our luggage there all day after checking out to go back into the city.

    Helpful/attentive staff. Good location, bus stops 1/2 block away, about 10mins to city center. great breakfast spread: hot Scottish option, cereals, fresh fruits, danishes, various juices.

    Nothing major, the front door slamming does tend to rattle the room doors at the same time, and my shower head was broken and sprayed at an awkward angle.

    The bed was very comfortable

    The breakfast was maybe not as good as we have had in the past from competitors close by.

    Superb

    My single room was good, with excellent ensuite shower. Hard to think how breakfast could be better; varied selection of fresh fruit was wonderful. Friendly staff. Location is quite handy for the University, bit of a walk into town, but certainly possible, and buses and taxis appear plentiful.
