We travelled to Edinburgh for a gig and booked a room here last minute for £62. We weren't expecting much at that price but were happily surprised with an upgrade on arrival to a stunning room! We even had a four poster bed! The receptionist was so friendly and helpful. I have forgotten his name but it began with a C! The room had a TV disguised as a gilded mirror. A small box on the wall containing a free miniature of whisky and small macaroons. It had a massive walk in shower in a large bathroom suite. Everything felt very decadent and there was also a bowl of complimentary fruit, lots of unusual tea bags in a beautiful silver tin and complimentary fizzy water. We were really impressed and couldn't believe the price. Wished we were staying longer. Highly recommend!
We had a poor experience previously but it seems this hotel is now under new management and the catering and service was excellent. I took a party of 10 prior to the Scotland v New Zealand match. Food was great. Service was EXCELLENT with plenty of helpful and pleasant staff. The atmosphere was buzzing. The location was perfect, with the stadium just a 5 minute stroll away and the hotel is walking distance from Haymarket station. There were cool freebies on the table (hats and rugby balls). The room was smart without being pompous. Would definitely recommend for business customers.
Had two rooms, 213 first then (1)19, room 19 but as it was on the first floor called 119. Rooms advertised as individual in style but we were first put in a corporate style room in what appeared to be a new annexe. The T.V didnt work neither did the safe (apparently a lot of them do not work). Got a supposed upgrade to room 19 which was a larger room. The carpet and chairs were very badly stained, the curtains had many pulls on them, one tiny sloping shelf in the bathroom which everything fell of and into the sink, the shower partition loose and dangerous, room looked out onto horrible, smelly kitchen extractors and fire escape also 15 or so porto loos. DO NOT go on match weekend as we had unfortunately done. Dont pay for breakfast produce extremely poor.Waitress staff friendly as was one female receptionist. We went to celebrate my husbands retirement so were extremely disappointed in the accommodation. One mornign water just stopped running whilst in the shower, they said pressure was low, hadnt come back on when we were due to go out. Instead of providing gowns/slippers filter coffee and biscuits, they need to get the basics right first!
Amazing room, fantastic food, warm and friendly staff...can’t speak highly enough of the place. It’s close to the zoo and a straight road into the city centre. We would definitely visit this place again.
Very good experience on our two day stay- all staff helpful and friendly with nothing too much trouble for them. Food was excellent, again very friendly staff. Our room was on the ground floor but far enough away from the bar/ dining area so noise was not an issue. Excellent location with regards distance to bus stops- would definitely book there again.
We stayed in the Murrayfield House and had breakfast in the hotel. The room was superb with lots of impressive treats. The beds were very comfortable but the pillows felt like bricks! They were microfibre ones and were quite lumpy. We both woke up with sore necks. Please consider stocking feather/down options in the room for guests so that they have a choice of pillow. Apart from that one gripe, everything else was top-notch and the breakfasts were delicious. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend but may take my own pillow next time!
Location - great for going to the rugby, just across the road from Murrayfield stadium. There are bus stops nearby too and it's walking distance to Haymarket (approx. 15 mins) Also, walking distance to the zoo (approx. 20 minutes). Staff - great staff in the hotel, restaurant and bar. All friendly and we were made to feel welcome. Cleanliness - very clean hotel and restaurant. Room - we got a free bottle of prosecco in our room because we booked direct which was great. Room was very nice and bed was comfy. Nice big shower. We stayed in room 15 and now and again could here a hand dryer go off so it must be above the toilets, this didn't bother us too much as it was before we went to sleep. I found the room very warm even though it was November and the heater didn't seem to be on but there is a fan in the cupboard that cooled me down. Great tea/coffee facilities provided as well as toiletries and a hair dryer. Also, robes and slippers provided. Food/Drink - we had dinner and breakfast here and enjoyed it all. It's a limited menu for dinner and it's quite fancy but good choices. The eggs benedict at breakfast was lovely. The alcohol was quite expensive, almost £10 for 2 drinks. Parking - there is parking behind the hotel but this was full when we arrived but we managed to park for free on a street nearby. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.
We had an enjoyable stay and upon our arrival, we were told that we had got a room upgrade at no extra cost. The room was room 7 in the annexe, which was really luxurious with a luxury bathroom. The room overlooked the back garden which was very quiet. The downside was that the price of the room did not include breakfast, and for what we paid, we expected something to eat in the morning. We did not have breakfast at the hotel as it was too pricey, and this did put a bit of a dampener on our stay. That said, we were close enough to the city centre to go and find breakfast there and there is also a Tesco Express a few hundred yards down the road where we bought some croissants for our breakfast. Parking at the hotel was also an issue. Before booking our stay, I read that the hotel had ample parking, and this was not the case, as there were was a marquee erected, which covered on area of the car park, and as there was work being done on the main building of the hotel, building contractor's vehicles took up most of the car park during the day, then at night, when they had all gone, we couldn't access the car park because the contractors had secured the fencing which they had erected around the car park. That left us searching for a space on a nearby street, which wasn't ideal, as the streets next to the hotel were full of parked cars. That said, we could not fault the accommodation apart from other people staying at the property, who were not considerate of other people and would allow the front door in the hallway to slam every time they went through it, which was annoying when you were trying to have a lie in. Maybe this could be addressed by the hotel putting a sign up asking people to close the door quietly.
We stayed for one night in one of the annexed rooms, which is two houses down from the main hotel, the room we stayed in was as the front of the property on the ground floor, which I was dubious of as its on a main road on a bus route, but to be honest we didn't hear a thing, the room was very quiet and luxurious, the hotel was spotless and everything catered for, we ate dinner in The Bothy, which was lovely as was the breakfast in the morning, the staff were all very pleasant and couldn't do enough for you, the only reason I haven't given the hotel a 5 star rating is because I didn't like having to go from one building to another for breakfast on a cold rainy morning, but saying that I would definitely book this hotel again.
I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel was stylish and comfortable. The location was convenient for the City. Great value for money and good amenities provided (tea/coffee/water/WiFi etc.). I would throughly recommend and will stay here again if I return to Edinburgh!
