                                    The location of the hotel, which attracted us to the carlton

                                    The traffic noise was terrible, we couldn't sleep and the bathroom was not up to standard.

                                    very well located. must for first timers in Edinburgh

                                    Bedroom very comfortable as was the lounge area. The breakfast was excellent with great choice.Would use this hotel again. Though facing the main street the room was very quiet. The hotel was also very central.

                                    Spa facilities and jacuzzi, the bed was very comfortable and the views great.

                                    The fire alarm at 8 in the morning, the lack of amenities (only gel and shampoo).

                                    The hotel was easily accessible from the station, and central. The room was spacious and clean. The windows opened a limited amount, but this allowed us to get fresh air

                                    The lighting was not conducive to putting makeup on, either in the bathroom, (my preferred choice) or in the bedroom. There were only two sachets of coffee on the hospitality tray - more had to be requested.On arrival at 6.00pm we were asked if we would wait, after a delay to check in, until 7.00pm to access our room. We did not accept this request.

                                    the blonde haired receptionist very helpfull and spa &leisure centre staff were all so helpful. Location perfect for in the city centre beside everything. massages in spa amazing staff were great.

                                    Its a four star hotel - but it is not cleaned to 4* standard , Bar staff & Restaurant staff not helpfull asked for items that we never recieved e.g tomato ketchup, cocktail all unavailable but I really think bar man did not want to make them. Ceasar salad for 10 pounds complete joke . filth of spa definately not 4* but staff were so nice and massages were amazing. rooms freezing and was told there was not heating in hotel, does that sound 4* to you??? but reception did get us a small plug in electric heater. for price paid , we felt let down but as it was my partner and mines anniversairy we both just got on with it and tried to enjoy it. would stay again but nowhere near that price as it doesnt represent the hotel

                                    Great location and staff that were more than happy to help with any request. Large and comfortable room.

                                    We had a street room that was very noisy

                                    The hotel location was the biggest draw. Restaurant was good and reception very professional. Our stay went without incident. Bed very comfortable. Shower very nice.

                                    Price was a little high for what is essentially a 3 star hotel with a leisure suite. Windows could be double glazed to block out some of the road noise. Would request a room away from the room if staying a Saturday night. Overall the hotel was adequate, but I wouldn't feel any great urge to stay again, as the value for money element (expectation of a 4 star hotel) was not there. Plenty of other overpriced hotels in the area though, so you are really paying for location.

                                    Excellent location and very good breakfast.

                                    The room we were allocated overlooked north bridge which was a very busy and noisy street.The windows are not soundproof.

                                    8.8

                                    I liked the rooms, the reception, the leisure facilities. The proximity to the city centre etc is excellent.

                                    The cocktails were expensive. I first came to this hotel about 26 years ago and I recall it as being much bigger; Probably because I am much older now.

                                    It is large and airy, from the reception hall to the rooms. Bed was king size. Room refurbished each day. Smashing late bar, and staff very attentive.The hotel made our visit.

                                    During a short visit, nothing went wrong.

                                    the location it the best thing about the hotel. the bar and reception are very modern although the rooms are not.

                                    only real problem is that the parking is very expencive and you have to park it quite a way from the hotel its self.
