Lovely stay at the Cairn Hotel
Delightful stay in a lovely hotel. We stayed over a weekend so the on-street parking was free - the hotel were very helpful with this information. Only one slightly negative comment - the breakfasts were quite acceptable, but not great, or it would have been 5 stars all round. And nothing to do with the hotel, but the traffic situation in Edinburgh is complete chaos and likely to continue for another year or two while they extend the tram network - don't bring your car if you can avoid it!!

Lovely Edinburgh stay.
Absolutely fantastic stay. Fast check in, huge room -more of an apartment. Staff friendly and helpful, room cleanliness outstanding. Shower was amazing. Full breakfast options. Will definitely stay again if in Edinburgh.

Cheap n cheerful
We stayed for one night, as we needed a spot near both the airport tram and the bus station (where our tour departed the next morning). The staff were lovely and breakfast was excellent value and plentiful. The room was clean and the bed was comfy, but it’s worth noting a few drawbacks: the room and bathroom were tiny, there was plaster hanging from one corner of the ceiling, and the window was jammed open (making for a rather loud night, with lots of late-night revellers on the sidewalk). Overall, great location, excellent value for money, and perfect for a night’s snooze.
