Quick stay

Stayed here on 05-01-14 due to an early check in at Edi airport on 06-01-14,(£11.50 in taxi) Staff very helpful,with advice on local transport, Train station 5 mins walk from hotel, Approx 8 minutes on train to Waverley at only £3.00 return I stayed in room 444,room spotless & comfy bed,a few of floor tiles in bathroom need re-grouting/filling, Only minor downside,was the noise from train track adjacent to room,but it was probably amplified due to me keeping window open. Did not have time to utilise leisure facilities,but had a quick tour & all looked fine Quick tip,mini-bar in room has bottles of water,but at a cost of £2.50 !! advice,take your own Overall, a pleasant stay

Modern, nice hotel

Very friendly reception with personal service. Modern hotel with American amenities. This is more of a business serviced hotel and required you to pay for wifi where as other hotels offer free wifi.

Excellent Hotel.

The Hotel is about 10 minutes on train from Waverley Station in Edinburgh, and about 1 minute walk from Edinburgh Park Station with the hotel being visible as soon as you step off the train. A round trip will set you back all of £2.50 with the trains running roughly every 30 minutes from the early morning till about 11.00 at night. A taxi will set you back about £15 - £20 and there are buses as well but again they run very similar times to the trains. The hotel itself provided a great breakfast in the morning varying from cereal to full english to fruit, pancakes and pastries etc. The staff were very helpful at check in, providing us with information about Edinburgh and the train times. they even held our luggage after check out on our last day which was very helpful. The rooms were clean, tidy and spacious with shower, toilet, hairdryer, TV, iron and board, and all the rest amenities you could need. A tesco across the road provided snacks for the evening and journey home. The maids were friendly and always on hand to tidy the room each day and keep the halls spotless. Overall the hotel was great. I would def stay there again and next time I would take advantage of the pool and gym. Great *HOT DEAL* price for a busy time of year (Fringe Festival) in Edinburgh.

Staff was helpful in telling us about the train and schedules. We found it difficult to drive from the airport to the hotel and find it--the traffic was confusing.

Very nice hotel

I stayed at this hotel because it was close to the airport and I had an early flight home. It was extremely nice. Last Sept. I stayed at a different hotel near the airport and it was cheesy.

Good Location outside of Edinburgh

Fairly inexpensive compared to hotels in Edinburgh. Hotel is outside of Edinburgh only a couple miles from the airport, very quiet at night. Train station only about 100 yards from the Hotel for easy trip into Edinburgh. Hotel is in an Industrial park so there isn't much around and finding a restaurant other than the hotel was a challenge. Also must pay for internet (13 GBP per day) but you also get decent movie package for TV)

Modern feel with some missteps.

We stayed here while visiting Edinburgh for a week. The hotel has a very modern look, which we liked. The bathroom includes a temperature controlled shower with two shower heads and a defogging mirror. Nice stuff. Unfortunately, I would trade that in for free internet access. I've stayed in other hotels in the same price range and most of them include internet access. They do offer some terminals in the lobby with free access, but sometimes there's a wait and I saw them get locked up on people a few times. (We opted to pay £14 for two hours of access to use through the week.) Rooms include a refrigerator, but they pack them with sodas and snacks. I didn't like that because I usually USE the fridge to store beverages and snacks we buy outside of the hotel. The pool was okay, but the jacuzzi/spa isn't heated and is inside the pool, which makes it all a bit small. The changing rooms and showers are coed, which was fine, but it made for some crowding with entire families inside. The location is good if you prefer to stay just a bit outside the city. It's steps from the train station, so we were able to enjoy the city by day, but get away from the busy streets in the evening for some real rest. (We weren't able to hear any trains from inside the hotel.) You must remember to grab a meal before heading back on the train because there are no dining options nearby and the hotel restaurant offers a limited menu in the late evening. One good thing nearby is a Tesco (supermarket/wal-mart type place) which helps if you forget anything or prefer to buy it once you get there.

The hotel is right next to the train station. Round trip tickets for £2.50 round trip at off-peak times. ScottRail trains run frequently and take you directly to Waverly Station in about 15 minutes.
