Fabulous 8.8 From 547 reviews

Very good 8.0
Honestly always pays
Great, love Edinburgh Great hotel and staff City centre is only ten minutes in a taxi or fifteen by bus, it was a nice day so we walked it to princess street. It took about 30 minuets . The only trick there missing is a cooked breakfast, served to you. But don’t let that put you off the breakfast has a good range of food . But the scrambled eggs and sausages I would give a miss.

A pleasant and enjoyable stay.

Choice of draught beer/lager/cider could be better, but otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable stay
Ian, gb2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great location, room was small with 4 of us in it, had to fold the second bed away to have any floor space. Great value for money with breakfast included. Buses stopped outside the hotel.
Chris, gb3 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great family stay
Great location for a few days away with my family. Free parking outside the hotel and a bus stop right outside to take you into the city centre (bus works out much better value for a family of 4 rather than paying for parking in the centre) also the Ocean Terminal shopping centre was just across the road for dinner so we could just roll home afterwards. The hotel itself is clean and modern looking. The family room we had was a tad small when the sofa bed was fully pulled out but we found that just folding up the end gave us enough room to be comfortable. Breakfast was good although I did find the sausage and bacon a bit greasy.

Return visit.
Return trip to this convenient hotel. Handy free, onsite parking, shopping centre across the street. Rooms are modern, beds comfortable and have modern facilities. Breakfasts are tasty although a variety of eggs such as boiled or fried would be good. The staff are especially friendly and helpful in this hotel, there is a warm atmosphere that you sense from when you first arrive. I received a lovely email from the manager Fiona even before we arrived, clarifying our room preference and both Scott and the night receptionist were most helpful and pleasant. There is a little building work going on at the moment behind the hotel but it didn't cause any disturbance to our stay at all and there was no noise early in the morning. We look forward to returning in the future.
