4/10 Fair

Beware hidden parking charge
Novotal Edinburgh Centre was ok. Room was reasonable but overpriced. I asked about parking before arriving and was told there was limited parking available. Was able to get a space in the hotel car park but at no point was i told it would coat £22 per day! A very unwelcome supruse when we checkd out and were told we owed £44 for parking. Totally disgraceful.

Toilet
Only drawback is the design of seperated bathroom and toilet(without hand wash equipment),lack of room on both cloth hanging and towel. Staff are very friendly, location is great.
