Brilliant place to stay!!!
Never stayed in an Apex Hotel before but I will definitely stay again! Really impressed. Excellent location, service, room etc. If I had to find something that could improve the stay, I’d say robes in the room would be nice and also point out that the pool is in the sister hotel ( practically next door). Would thoroughly recommend and will book again for our next visit to Edinburgh. Thank you Apex!

Very good 8.0
Great hotel with beautiful views of the castle and a lovely, comfy room. Great location! Difficulty with changing my dates as I messed up the travel, so ended up paying for a night that I didn’t use. Would have been nice if the hotel was cooperative with my issues, rather than not allowing us to adjust the dates by one day.

Very good 8.0
Everything was excellent except the bed was too hard which lead to a sleepless night.

Great hotel - great stay
Never stayed at an Apex Hotel before and was extremely pleased with the overall experience. The reception was speedy and efficient, the room was of a good size and very clean with good facilities including a good selection of teas, coffee etc. Of particular praise should be the breakfast service. We chose to have a cooked breakfast and there was a very good choice on the menu. What we liked best was that it wasn't the usual self service breakfast from heated dishes - it was served to order by an extremely friendly, polite and efficient waitress - she deserves special praise
