Happy Hotel

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.

Very pleased.

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

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.

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

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 tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

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...

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.

Friendly and helpful staff. Room a little on the small side but clean, warm and comfortable. Excellent location for us as very close to Haymarket station and also only a 15 minute walk from Princes Street. Food and drink prices in the hotel are expensive compared to other local bars and restaurants. However, as Edinburgh is my home town I know where to go and where not to go. Would I stay there again? Yes!

The hotel was really nice overall, beautiful, comfortable room except that our room had zero internet service which was a large inconvenience. Shower pressure was pretty bad but other than that no negatives to say. The walk to Princes St is actually about 20 minutes not 10 like the website says. The food in the hotel's restaurant and from room service was of good quality and not overly priced at all
