All was well
John, gb1 night trip
Motel One Edinburgh-Royal
Will stay again
Clean comfortable quick check in and good location by Waverley Station and a short walk to the tram
A Traveller, gb1 night trip
Motel One Edinburgh-Royal
Good location.
Basic room but with a fabulous bathroom. Could do with a bit more storage area in the room especially for people who are there for more than one night. Ideally located for the train station and the bus station.
Mr Philip, gb2 night trip
Motel One Edinburgh-Royal
Lovely spot at Christmas time
Apart from a couple of items we loved our stay and we will be back. A wall socket in the area of the kettle would have been nice. The only ones we could find were on the walls around the bathroom. Bedside tables to put a mug on would have been a bonus as we like to have our morning coffee sitting in bed.
