Very good
The hotel is really good and the service as well. It’s close to literally anything and there is also a bus station nearby. I recommend purchasing breakfast as it is really good and they offer many options. The room was clean, warm and comfortable. The only thing I disliked was the shower, it looked to me rather dirty, but the bathroom was lovely otherwise.

Edinburgh Playhouse visit
Perfect location for our purpose, loads of eateries within walking distance, bus stops within a 5 minute walk to make travel around the City so easy. Excellent check-in/check-out, staff very good. Breakfast very good, ample choice, breakfast room clean and welcoming and staff on the ball. Would definitely stay again.

2 night stay at The Cairn Hotel
We stayed for 2 nights while visiting the Edinburgh Playhouse. Disappointed that there was no lift as my wife struggles with stairs. The room was a reasonable size and the bed was very large with reading lights, there were several sockets and charger points, the walk-in shower was a plus. The hotel is within easy walking to the Playhouse and Omni centre, unfortunately it doesn't do evening meals but we found a little Italian restauraunt almost back to back with the hotel. Parking can be an issue as one side of the road is permit holders only and the other side of the road is 4 hours Max during the daytime.
