Nice location
Good place to stay, near to Edinburgh City, lots of places to see near the hotel. Spacious room, with free parking though it’s a bit hard to park but helpful.Easy checked in and checked out. The shower is not great though but we’re happy with our stay, will recommend to our friends to stay here.

Awesome wee find
Awesome little find. A wee bit dated, but exactly what I needed for the time I was in Edinburgh.

good 3 star stay
The room was basically clean but if you looked in the corners it left something to be desired. The beds were comfortable enough for a couple of nights. The gentlemen running the hotel were very solicitous and helpful and made us very welcome, offering information and advise about the local area and how to get around town.

Don’t bother
Very poor value for money. Beds are uncomfortable.
