Very helpful staff. The afternoon tea and snacks pleasant. Location good. Hotel much quieter than I was expecting. However lots of little things not working in my room. An ok hotel with very nice staff.

Although the room was small by American standards the quality and cleanliness was excellent. The location is ideal for visiting old town.

An excellent stay and experience! From beginning to end everyone was so kind, thoughtful, personable and of course professional! The hotel was extremely clean and you can’t beat the location. If I travel to Edinburgh again I will only stay at motel one! ❤️

My internet especially in my room was rather a hit and miss. Otherwise everything else was wonderful, which is why I only stay there now when in Edinburgh!!!

great location right in where all the sights are. New state of art rooms, lobby, bar, etc. great staff very attentive

A block from the castle. Across the street from the taxis and airport buses. Across the street from the station.

Hotel was very nice & in the perfect location. Lounge stays open all night which is a plus. Rooms were great except that the plugs were just like the reviews said - very few & in odd places. None in bathroom or beside the bed & half way up the wall. Staff was nice but not very knowledgeable about the city or transportation options. All that being said, I would definitely stay there again.

Modern hotel with a great breakfast. The hotel is in a very convenient area, across the street from the airport shuttle, one-half block to the train station, one block, steep incline to the Medieval Mile, near the Edinburgh Castle end. It's close to The Museum on the Mound and The National Art Museum.

The front desk staff was extremely helpful and friendly, giving us tips on how to get around the city and getting through check in was a breeze. The room was quite small, but fine for just one. Bar staff was great as well! Only a 5 minute walk to the gallery & Scott Monument, and an exchange across the bridge along with a shopping center made this a great place to stay!

Everything about this hotel was great. Very good value.

This hotels location is a 3 minute walk to the Royal Mile! The location is perfect, you are a short walk to all of the famous sites and especially the Royal Mile! The lobby area is very nice, the bar is open 24hrs, we didn't have breakfast there but it looked like a good option! The room itself, is small but has everything you need!
