Good 6.0
Not up to usual Apex standard sadly
Disappointing compared to Temple Court and Bath Apex hotels. Shoddy building, Uncomfortable bed, cleaning staff took our room key from the room, poor room service- who puts mayonnaise in a toasted sandwich?! Very sad breakfast- buffet one day, cooked the next- several items missing. Staff serving breakfast who actively avoided the customers- wouldn’t make any eye contact and didn’t know the answer to questions. Overall, a disappointing stay, we regularly stay in other Apex hotels but won’t be visiting the Grassmarket on our return to Edinburgh.

Perfect Hogmanay!!
Absolutely perfect stay we had a room that overlooked the castle on New Year’s Eve so could watch the fireworks from the warmth of our room !! Doesn’t get better than this hotel for location

Poor 2.0
Worst hotel forever!!!
Worst experience ever. My car was damaged in the hotel car park. The staff were not helpful at all. I have asked to speak to the manager. The assistant Craig said the manager was on holiday. Really typical answer! Tiny words on the sign in the car park!!! No CCTV!!! If you like your car is damaged, you can park there. Refused to provide the receipt of my stay because they cannot access my booking and payment information. I have stayed so many hotels, this is the first time that the staff refused to provide an invoice for my stay!!!!!!!
