Perfect for a family on a budget during The Fringe
Stayed here during Edinburgh Fringe, selected due to price and location. was easy to drive to and offered on site free parking,with alternative parking close by as well. Easy walking distance to centre or alternatively great bus service. Room would begin to feel to small if staying longer than a few days - 2 adults one tall teenage boy. Staff very helpful. Breakfast varied although the usual contraversial problem of substandard sausages existed :)

Good for overnight stay.
An overnight stay next to the cruise port, where I was attending a day ship visit. Have stayed here previously pre-cruise, and like the proximity to the port. Comfortable room with fast acting air conditioning. The restaurant area is not sufficiently large to accommodate the breakfast rush, when the hotel is busy - as it was this time.
