Airport & City Access

Would recommend Wed, Nov 11, 2015
Close both to Haymarket Station and the trams/buses to Edinburgh Airport, and to city attractions and shops. Prompt room service, helpful, friendly staff, and fast, efficient check-in/out made it a good choice for a short stay in the city. Room and bed were clean and comfortable, and the bathroom with shower was a good size and layout.

Weekend Getaway

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
We stayed at the hotel for the weekend as we had tickets to a show on the Saturday night. Price was very reasonable considering that it was only a few pounds more than leading cheap travel chains. Had dinner in the restaurant on the first night and service was very friendly and quick. Food was served hot and tasted delicious. The selection for continental breakfast both mornings was good but feel there could have been a slightly better selection/better presentation at the bar. The room looked exactly as it did on the website. Feather duvet on the bed and mattress was very comfy. Bathroom could have done with some TLC as grout in middle of double shower was a bit dingy and the door didn't stay closed properly so caused a small puddle outside. Hotel was quiet at night and slept soundly. Thought there'd have been more noise from outside but no issues. Located only ten to fifteen minutes from Princes Street and only a few minutes froom Haymarket station. Couldn't have chosen better.

On the outskirts- nothing to write home about

Would not recommend Sun, Aug 23, 2015
We lucked out to find parking during the festival- had to walk quite a bit- but we are New Yorkers so no big deal for us. Desk staff was less than helpful with mis-information and no info on the festival. Also, the free duck gimmick got us stopped in security at the airport. so pack that in your checked luggage - The shower leaked and view was of a building so again, nothing to write home about- but an ok place to stay if everything else is booked.

Happy Hotel

Would recommend Sun, Oct 26, 2014
Lovely greeting from the reception on arrival. The room was perfectly clean and very well presented. Even managed to get parking which was a bonus. The hotel restaurant serves excellent food and the service was friendly/ efficient. The position in the West End was perfect for access to the castle, museums and botanical gardens. Will definitely stay again instead of using the Travelodge.

Dining

Get yourself the Tastecard as the hotel restaurant accepts it which means 50% of the food bill when pre-booked.

We can recommend this property for its location and comfort. For a chain hotel we were satisfied and it felt more independently owned. Nothing grand. Solid service and reasonable amenities.

Wonderful Staff

Would recommend Tue, Aug 5, 2014
The staff were polite and helpful and the room was clean, roomy and comfortable. The hotel was in the quiet area away from the city center but there were some shops and pubs within easy walking distance and the train station was quite close. Quite a long walk to the other side of the city to see the palace.

Attractions

Didn't realize the Festival was the month of August and the Royal Mile was extremely crowded with various entertainers passing out flyers.

Great Local Hotel

Would recommend Mon, Oct 8, 2012
The hotel is in a great location in Haymarket. It's 2 blocks from the train station and taxis, a half hr walk to all the Royal Mile (touristy stuff), and within easy walking distance to lots of pubs and restaurants. The hotel staff was amazing! They were really attentive and helpful with giving directions. It's in a quiet location by a suburb area. The rooms were a good size, but the bed was too

Dining

I suggest going to the The Mercat Bar & Restaurant. Graham (the owner) is incredibly friendly! It's a cute local restaurant with a whisky bar and lounge downstairs. It's definitely the place to go for good food and whisky. And if you like restaurants with very few tourists and more locals then this is the spot.

Americans in Edinburgh

Would recommend Sat, Jul 28, 2012
We just spent 4 nights at this hotel. The location was perfect and we were able to walk or catch a bus to all city sites and attractions. Reasonably priced, room was clean and plenty of space for the both of us. The staff was very pleasant and helpful with suggestions for sight seeing. I would highly recommend this hotel to my friends and families.

Nice, but...

Would recommend Sat, Jun 16, 2012
Generally, this was a very peasant hotel, and would most likely stay again, the lack of any temperature control made it uncomfortable for sleep as the days got warmer. Our window only opened an inch and a half, which allowed pretty much no air movement, especially after the housekeeping staff kept closing it! The small oscillating fan just didn't help much.
