Great location for college visiting

We stayed at the Edinburgh Capital Hotel in order to visit St Andrews and Edinburgh University. The hotel was well located for this purpose, easily reachable from the airport and with quick access out of the city towards the Firth of Forth Bridge, but also convenient for city sightseeing and visiting. The gym facilities are excellent, with a full fitness center and large indoor pool on site - as a guest you are even entitled to attend classes at the fitness center which include yoga, aerobics, etc. The on-site dining options are a little limited, and we felt that the restaurant was pricy for the quality of food, but it was convenient for a meal when all we wanted to do was eat and go to bed after our long flight. I would definitely stay here again and recommend for families and travelers looking for a cost-effective alternative to being in the city.

why stay here?

The lobby looks good. The hotel and rooms have been recently renovated according to the staff. However, the beds are soggy, rooms are dimly lit. Cups and spoons for tea were not clean. Why would you stay here? My husband picked the hotel.
