pretty basic but a decent value

The floors were squeaky in our room. The carpets had some stains. Overall it really was a decent hotel but certainly not exceptional.

Good time

In a town where the dollar (£) doesn't go far, this hotel was a good value. While not cheap, it had enough amenities to make up for the price. Clean, in good repair, no real complaints. It's a 25 minute bus ride to the city centre and the bus stop is close to the hotel.

Get your food at Tesco before going into the city centre. The food at most restaurants leaves much to be desired and is quite expensive for what you get. Spend £3 on a sandwich and crisps at Tesco and walk away from the many vendors and cafés that will charge £2 for a can of juice in the centre.

Edinburgh trip

I loved the location, very picturesque. From the restaurant, you can look out towards the Forth of Firth (I think) and see the airport, but the views are spectacular. The room was nice and fit my needs as a lone traveler perfectly. The staff were very accommodating and made me feel very welcome. I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Edinburgh.

Buy a day pass for the Buses. It was £3.50 and you can use it all day until midnight. The 26 bus will pick up by Rannoch Road and the 1 bus will drop you off right behind the hotel.

A gem outside the city!

We arrived very early before check in and went and had a coffee in the breakfast area, then within a couple of hours we were told we could check in early. Which after a long trek up we needed our bed! The bed was enormous. Two singles attached well together. Very comfy as well. Great size rooms, big bathroom and it was all in great condition and very clean. Breakfast was discounted to £10 each but had plenty of choice. My partner being a vegetarian still had plenty to choose from as well. Cooked and continental. The staff were all fantastic and couldn't do enough to help. They were chatty and friendly and so polite. The pool, sauna and steam room are lovely. Shame there isn't a jacuzzi/ spa. We didn't use the gym but looked good. Yes it is a fair way from the city. Took about 15-20 minutes on the bus. But there is a huge car park if you have a car. Plus I think its free. All in all a lovely place, great staff and we can't wait to return soon. Thank you everyone!

Great Location

It was a great location, away from the city centre but with great bus links it was great for me. The staff were very helpful which was good. The only downside was the cleaning staff, I wanted to keep my towels but they changed them everyday which was very annoying. Also there was no soap in the room.

Use the mass transit system in the city, there's a bus stop 4 minutes away from the front door and it will take you to the heart of the city!
