    Fabulous 8.6 From 791 reviews

    Very good 8.0
    Nice hotel with car parking and pool
    Steven, gb1 night family trip
    Fair 4.0
    Nice hotel, but negatives outweigh positive
    Just a brief review to sum it up . Positives- Lovely hotel, friendly staff. Nice pool area, great open times. Here’s the down side- Booked a family room only to find out on check that there were no rooms available! We were split up for the first night & then moved to a family room on our second day. However, Staff were very apologetic and refunded us the 1 night. Although we were disappointed as how could this happen this day in age? Breakfast was a shambles! Very long waiting times and then hardly nothing left when you actually got seated, and was then told that they couldn’t make more waffle mix as it is for tomorrow!! Maybe if we were seated quickly then my daughter could have had some, on the same morning there were no bowls left!! Don’t think food was replenished quickly enough for the amount of guests staying at the hotel, same as clearing the tables, lots of tables full of used plates etc and huge queue of people! Hotel was lovely, nice entrance, clean and modern but wouldn't stay again.

    Give it a miss, plenty more choice in Edinburgh.
    Poor service, miserable staff (Martin on reception), cutlery left in corridors for three days, broken flushes and no toilet roll in the pool toilets and just laughable that the hotel claims 4 stars. Our room was cleaned once in three days and the first time the housekeeper wanted to come into the room was 17.30! And Xmas day menus stayed up for our entire stay 26th to 29th...,!). Don’t get me started on the spelling and grammar....!
    Kevin, gb3 night family trip

    Hotel is nice ,but really required maintenance. Carper in room was with hole. Spa was really bad ,lockers in changing room didnt work ,sauna didnt work. Some doors needed painting. Breakfast was really good.
