Rachel, gb4 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
This was our first experience staying in university accommodation we would definitely do it again very good use of fully equipped kitchen and although there was no room service however we were told before hand this was the case. There's 24hour reception. Easy to get onto Edinburgh by bus or 20mins walk
Sandra, gb5 night romance trip
Poor 2.0
terrible place. worse mattress, no air!!!!!
We wanted to stay 3 nights, in the end we stayed only 2, and even that was to much. I was with my son, we've asked for separated beds and they had no way of helping us, not even giving us an additional mattress. They were very unhelpful and didn't offer any solution. We've bought a Yoga mattress for my son to sleep on, while I was sleeping on the bed, which also was very unpleasant since the bed was impossible to sleep on. Another serious problem was that there was no way of ventilating the room, because you can't open the window and there was neither a fan nor an air-conditioner in the room, so the hot air in the room and in the corridors simply stands still, a great way to catch a disease. Most of the staff was empathetic to our problem, but none of them was able, or really tried to help us find a solution. This place functions during the year as a campus accommodation. As a parent, I would have never let my children stay there, as it is just not fit for living. After 2 nights we've managed to find another hotel. Do not come near this place!!!
