Three of us went to the fountain spa then we decided to eat at the hotel to save going anyplace else. Three fish and chips two with peas one with no peas. Ok it was a Saturday night but they were not that busy so what could be wrong. Fists the time we waited to have our food! Second two with peas one with out we got one with peas and two with none the staff did offer to get peas but said it would take several mins for it to be done so only real option was to have no peas as i did not want cold fish and chips now the food being brought out to other tables looked real good and i could hear people saying that it was very good i now with i had the steak and root veg pie with mash but that will come now to end this the chips were soggy and taste wise bland had to over do the vinegar to give them some taste do not get me wrong we will come back to try the pie.
Very nice clean hotel... Pleasant staff and really nice dinner in the Bistro and nice breakfast. Only moan is DIY toast at breakfast. It is a pet hate of ours, standing in line making toast rather than it being brought to the table with the coffee....seems to be the trend these days.
There were no hellos, just a blank stare until I volunteered my name. We were taken to the lift,no smiles or enjoy your stay. We arrived half an hour after check in time, yet sheets and trolleys were strewn all over the corridor. The corridor was narrow so negotiating this with a case in hand you can imagine. Not impressed with being told the member of staff concerned was not normally like that, and told the linen was due to people checking out at the latest time. This experience totally spoilt our nights stay, the room however Was comfortable enough except for the lack of fans or air conditioning. After this we would think twice about staying in a Best Western, and certainly won't be going back to The Kings Manor.
We had a family birthday party for 50 here last weekend in the Lothian suite which was professionally handled by both management and staff with superb efficency, organisation and cheerfulness. Nothing was too much trouble for management, serving staff or bar staff, who were always willing to advise and chip in as family set up the room, dressed the tables and organised music and AV facilities. A memorable night was smooth and seamless and I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for value for money, care and attention to detail. A job well done. Thank you.
Traveling on business, happy with the facilities, the room was nice, en-suite perfect with a very good shower. The pool was a good length and a good temperature for swim training and the Gym was excellent with a very good treadmill.
I stayed the night with two friends at this handy best western hotel. The facilities were excellent. The hotel is very clean and well decorated. Staff are friendly and attentive. We had a few drinks in the well appointed bar. Dined from the bistro menu which was good value. Haggis balls to start with. Followed by steak and ale pie and mash. Nothing special but fine food. Breakfast was buffet style. Served in a very nice restaurant. The variety of breakfast was good. The bacon was poor quality and unfortunately the food was almost cold. Typical buffet. Why can't they have better heating for the food provided. But overall a nice hotel marred by a lukewarm breakfast.
We stayed in the Best Western Kings Manor Hotel for three nights in room 82 which is fabulous for a wheelchair user - very accessible, spacious, comfortable twin beds. One recommendation we made was for a fixed shower seat to be provided as the one we were given was haphazard for my friend, but apart from that the room was perfect with nice outlook. All the staff were so friendly and helpful - reception, porters, housekeeping and restaurant staff. The hotel is immaculately clean Food served in the restaurant - breakfast and dinner was excellent - the Goan Fish curry is sublime and there is so much choice at breakfast - a real feast. Excellent value for money - considerably cheaper than other quotes we had for a disabled room in Edinburgh. We really like the location - it is a few miles out of the City Centre but not far from the beach at Portobello and easy to get to Leith or further afield if you want to explore such beautiful places as Queensferry and Dunbar. Good parking facilities. The Hotel also has a Spa with large swimming pool and various treatments - the staff went out of their way to make us feel very special.... facial and manicures were first rate I would give this hotel a very high rating and would highly recommend it BUT I do think a little more could be done to make it more disable friendly eg push buttons to open doors to the restaurants - its very demeaning for my friend in a wheelchair to have to wait for someone to open the door for her. Huge thank you to all the staff who made our stay so enjoyable
I've stayed here for a Six Nations game in March 2017 and was very impressed. It's the first hotel I'd look to stay in if I ever needed to do so again. The price was very competitive for Edinburgh, parking was free and on site, the staff were extremely friendly, the breakfast was good and the room did the job. If you are looking for a place to rest your head for the night after a city break this is the place.
Stayed here 3 days beginning of June. Booked as a base to see Edinburgh and so glad I did! The area is perfect - it's a 7 min train ride from city centre, with the station 5 mins walk around the corner. Or you can take a bus (30 mins journey) from literally outside the hotel. The immediate area - you are a 15 mins walk (downhill!) to the beach, and what a beach! Beautiful sandy beach and you can then walk along the promenade right to the main part of Portobello beach (approx 20 mins?) with many cafes etc. We walked back along the high street rather then the promenade, just to see more. The vast majority of cafes and restaurants are healthy modern fare - by this I mean you will be very well catered for if you are vegetarian, vegan or gluten free. The shops are lovely arty and crafts shops & galleries. As to the hotel! The room was one of the biggest we have stayed in for a triple/family room. I had called ahead and arranged for a fridge to be in the room (at no charge). There is a PlayStation in the room and a selection of games held at reception (again, no charge). The health club is great, large swimming pool with kids pool and jacuzzi, Steam room & sauna. Guess what? No extra charge 😂 What really sets this place apart though is the service. All of the staff we dealt with were so helpful and genuinely took pride in their work. You really have the feeling that anything you may want will be accommodated. The information available in the room and at reception is the most Comprehensive if any of the many many hotels we have stayed over the years. Complete timetables for every mode of transport with everything marked out so clearly, where to get on & off and price of all fares, this is just one example of the wealth of information laid out for you. As long as you can read, you have all the answers to all the questions previous reviewers have moaned about. Maybe that's it, they can't read? I would suggest they take the time they spend whining learning how to read. Excellent service and if you are in Edinburgh, do yourself and stay here - especially if you have children. You will Not be disappointed!
Good hotel, we had a very large triple room, clean, comfortable and well priced. No mini bar or fridge but that wasn't an issue as the weather wasn't hot! TV, X box, in room. Didn't try the restaurant but the adjoining bistro was good and well priced. Would stay here again if in the area.
