The location is great and staff were really friendly
The property would benefit from some redecoration work - it could be amazing. The lamps in the room were not all working and there were hairs in the shower and on the beds which was a shame as put us off a little

Myself and 2 grown up children were reminiscing by going to the stage show of The Lion King and the Halcyon is literally a 5 min walk from the Edinburgh Playhouse. The building is Victorian so the rooms are very big. We had one double and 3 single beds to choose from. The room was clean and appealing to the eye. Our welcome was fab, breakfast delicious and service spot on. We would recommend and would stay again
The only criticisms we had were the mattresses were a bit thin needing upgrading and the shower did not maintain temperature.

Reasonable price for 2 staying overnight with a hearty breakfast. Very clean room and lots of tea and coffee, if you like a nice cuppa when you've been out and about.
The only thing I would fault about our stay was there was no television in the room.

Though its walking distance from the station to this hotel but if you have big luggage then you would not be able to walk through the short cut way to this hotel. Little deserted though its safe. Breakfast served was good and the ladies at the kitchen were friendly. One of the ladies helped us with the luggage.
There is no lift, so if you have big luggage then this is not for you. Narrow stairs, so very difficult to take it up when you have luggage. We had to wait for couple of mins when we entered the hotel since no one answered after ringing the bell few times. Later, a gentleman appeared who I assume is the owner of the property, Matthew was not that helpful. He was unapproachable if we had any queries since we had to ring the bell (that too we happen to notice there is a black button on the wall else knocking on the door does not help) and wait for few mins for him to come. When we asked for help with our luggage, there was mockery and told us to 'sit on our luggage and come down". Rooms and bathrooms are compact without much space to walk around. Photo attached.It was too quiet and felt it was just me and my friend during our entire stay in this hotel. Felt little deserted and to walk about in this hotel by ourselves. There was literally no one else at the hotel atleast during our stay. Ladies, who help this gentleman comes only in the morning. One of them helped with our luggage from 2nd floor. This could definitely be well managed provided owner of this property gets help like a manager or anyone who could be there for the guests when they need any help during the stay.
