Negative Reviews

Breakfast buffet prices high

The meals at the hotel’s on-site One Square restaurant are not complimentary Guests are sometimes disheartened to see pricey meal listings, particularly on the breakfast buffet This drew the ire of some staying at the hotel If you are planning on eating at the on-site restaurant for breakfast, consider going the a la carte route as opposed to paying for the buffet You should receive a better overall deal.

Not all views created equal

While some guests really enjoyed paying for their Edinburgh Castle-view rooms, others indicate that some of the views left a lot to be desired You may end up with a view that only provides a relatively small corner of visible castle.

Spa prices may not meet expectations

A number of guests indicate they weren’t expecting to pay for access to the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa’s spa area While there are available discounts, guests occasionally report being led to believe that the spa was free Keep in mind that you will be paying for spa access during your stay if you elect to use the facilities.
