Very good location for city
We stayed here for the Edinburgh marathon festival as it was ideal location for this. 15-20 walk in to the city which is pretty much one straight road. Reasonable sized parking area which was brilliant as we drove up. Ideal stay for 3 nights but the beds werent comfy and only one thin pillow but apart from that everything else was fine.
