    Very good 8.4 From 687 reviews

    Exceptional 10.0
    Great Hotel
    Really can't fault this place at all, the room was fantastic, clean and well maintained and really comfortable. The pool area was a plus, although the pool itself was quite small and is usually quite busy, there are also the steam room, sauna or jacuzzi to take advantage of, and for the more sporty person theres a decent fitness suite to use. The hotels locations is good, a 10 minute walk to Grassmarket and a 25 minute walk to Princess Street. Don't fancy the walk? Well there are always plenty of buses and even a taxi if you want.

    Great hotel, nice pool, friendly staff.
    Great hotel - staff were really friendly. Hotel is located within walking distance of the centre, has a great pool, great dining room for breakfast and a chilled out bar. The basement parking isn't massive, but there is on-street parking just opposite the hotel and a carpark just down the road. Recommended.

    Poor 2.0
    Oversold and sent to different hotel - avoid
    Novotel oversold go put me into a taxi to ibis Styles across town. Very frustrating as arrived late and deliberately booked location to be close to meetings the next day
