Rated 2 out of 5 by MtsC Not Good
We were here for one night. After unpacking I had a shower, the drain in the shower was blocked and after a few minutes I was standing in dirty drain water. We complained and were moved to another room, the staff were apologetic and didn't hesitate but it was annoying having to re-pack then unpack again especially as we were short of time as we had an evening appointment. As we packed in such a hurry I left my passport behind and didn't realise until we had left the hotel the next day. The second room was fine but the hotel has been refurbished and the bathrooms are impractical, the water pressure is very poor (15 mins to fill a bath) and nearly a 5 minute wait for hot water. The lighting system is complicated and if you're there for one night and rushing to go out you don't haver time to work it out. The mini bar had one bar of chocolate and nothing else apart from drinks. We don't eat chocolate and were looking for some nuts and the Duty Manager did send some up to our room with complimentary drinks. The staff did what they could and were pleasant but the design of the whole hotel has changed and not for the better.

This is definitely one of the best SPG properties we have ever visited. Friendly staff, nice Club Room and a really wonderful spa. Highly recommend this Shearton

I've been to the hotel before and its always a delight. The rooftop hydropool is a must (but must be payed for extra) and I love the gin cocktail sampling at the bar.

For a Sheraton Cat 5 Hotel I thought that the Hotel was lacking, quite poor public spaces, and very limited in size and scale. There are better hotels in Edinburgh.

Comfortable,convenient and staff as good as always. I preferred the former buffet dinner arrangements to the new style, but this won't stop me staying here again.

An exciting and surprising vacation with daily reminders of how much your hotel staff were genuinely concerned for our comfort and welfare. Excellent Service!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bulls01 Lovely hotel but disappointing room
When staying in the Castle View suite, one would expect excellent quality and not having a leaking shower door or have to pay extra for internet/wifi access!

Total disappointment with the refurbished bar. The previous bar was dated and showing signs of wear, however it was stylish, elegant and had quality furniture and fittings. What you have created is a bar that does not have any signs on the beer dispensers to show what products are on offer. The furniture looks like Ikea end of line products that they could not sell. The large green high back chairs obsure your view. The table not only come apart and I spilled two drinks, they are not big enough for four people to eat and drink off as they are so small. This range of furniture will also date very quickly. No carpets means you can hear people clomping about and making a distracting noise. What has been created is a town centre bar/disco style venue, not a 5 Star quality, appealing, stylish venue. Not only all this you have spent probably hundreds of pounds on a picture and put a wide screen TV over it! Lastly you have nothing in the bar that is Scottish! A missed opportunity. For me you have created the bar on the moon - it has no atmosphere.
Needless to say, but the next time we stay at the Sheraton we will not use this facility.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rbjmsol I am shocked by the positive reviews
The hotel is ok looking and the staff in the bar restaurant are very nice. My main complaint is the manager,the staff at the front desk and the concierge desk except the main concierge. We were given directions to a restaurant that first night which was no longer there by personel at front desk. We were also almost told to go to the wrong train station, but luckily the main concierge overhead the conversation and corrected the mistake.The first night we got there they upgraded us to a club room which was great. We have been upgraded to a club level numerous times and have never not been given access to the club room. But we found out that we were given a club room but not access to the club facility for breakfast etc. I talked to the manager and he would not budge and was somewhat arrogant about the whole thing. Although he did offer us points ,but wouldn't it have been nicer to given us access since we are such supportive starwood members.
I find that sheraton hotels staff are not given high level training on how to treat guests. I would think twice about going to another sheraton hotel and may even opp out to go to another chain if a higher level hotel is not available. Too bad.
