Weekend Break
Had an enjoyable stay. The hotel is well located for exploring Edinburgh and quiet at night. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We a a good sized room, but it was a little tired looking. Although their is a lounge area it only seems to be used for serving breakfast, would be nice ito have had an area to sit and have a drink or coffee etc.

Very good 8.0
Cheap and cheerful! Comfortable beds
Good points: very clean room and comfy mattress. Decor is ok but nothing special. Location is good with only a 5 min walk to station. Bad points: breakfast is very basic, wouldn't waste your money. Service was average and the windows wouldn't open properly.
