Really nice hotel. Within the university grounds so wasn't expecting this standard but was pleasantly surprised! Fireplace in the room, large double bed and very large bathroom. Highly recommended. Staff very friendly and very good breakfast served. Would visit again!

We stayed here three days last week having originally booked for Salisbury Green, which is part of the same hotel group and is adjacent to this property. We were originally tempted by the ‘historic’ nature of Salisbury Green with its interesting facade and interior but requested to change as we felt that Masson House would be a little quieter. The inside of Salisbury Green is, indeed, very interesting but the corridors are quite narrow and therefore clients needed to pass by right outside the door of the room we had been allocated and it was something of a thoroughfare. Calum, on reception, was extremely helpful and polite and was able to allocate a quiet room, as we’d originally requested. We actually live in the middle of the countryside and our nearest ‘neighbours’ are sheep and so, perhaps, we are more bothered by routine hotel noise than ‘normal’ people! That having been said, our room was great: a good size, spotlessly clean and well appointed. Spot on! Our booking included breakfast and, oh my goodness, what a great selection was available! We really were spoilt for choice! On the ‘help yourself’ counters there were: proper fruit juices (not just ‘squash’), a nice selection of cereals, a wonderful choice of fresh fruit including blueberries, raspberries and strawberries alongside citrus fruits and prunes, a selection of yogurts, cheeses and cold meats, muffins and continental pastries along with breads and two sorts of milk. There was also a full menu of hot breakfasts to choose and select from including all the usual bacon, sausages, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms etc etc and also vegetarian options and three sorts of haggis or black pudding! We have stayed in some much more expensive hotels around the world and have never had better choices available at such a reasonable price. The staff in the dining area were great, especially Sean (good luck with your Wedding!) and Emelise. What wonderful representatives these staff are: polite, professional but also friendly though not ‘invasive’. First class! We just wanted a reasonably priced hotel to stay in, fairly close to the city centre so that we could walk in and then see all the sights. Our expectations were basic, really, and so we were very pleasantly surprised and would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends.

This is a fabulous little place to stay in the centre of Edinburgh. Many years ago I was a student staying in Pollock Halls and I have to say that Masson House is nothing like I expected. The refurbished rooms are really nice and the shower room is great with lovely Aran Aromatics shower gel. When it says that there is tea and coffee in the room it doesn't say that it is filter coffee and also a great selection of wonderful high end teas. Sound proofing is good. Breakfast is really good and made with high quality ingredients. Individually ordered cooked breakfast came quickly and was grilled. Continental breakfast selection is varied and really good. Staff at reception and in the Bistro were very pleasant and helpful. The grounds of Pollock Halls are beautifully laid out and planted to a high standard with lots of less common plants. Credit to the gardening team as well. Pollock Halls is a short walk to Princess Street and is also served by numerous bus routes.

Stayed here for one night and would thoroughly recommend it. The room was large, with a big window that gave great light. The ensuite bathroom was really large and spotlessly clean. There was a very good range of teas and a cafetière. The breakfast was excellent. There was a very good range of fresh fruit, in particular strawberries, grapefruit, plums, a freshly cooked hot breakfast all served very promptly. Liked this place and will definitely use again.

Hotel within the university accommodation campus, very quiet and peaceful stay. Felt very secure with on site security, free parking and excellent breakfast. Half hour walk to royal mile, very helpful and happy reception. Only reason I didn’t give 5 star was our room was a bit dated but would definitely consider staying again.

This is a great place to stay, well situated and with ample parking. A very friendly welcome when we booked in and the room was warm and nicely furnished. Lovely shower! The breakfast was excellent and the restaurant manager really helpful. Haggis for doesn't get better than that! (To think, we could have booked a Travelodge at £10 more!) Loads of parking space, which is a big consideration when staying in Edinburgh.

Recently stayed with a party of young swimmers from Preston and was very impressed from start to finish. Good sized rooms with very comfy beds and lovely bathrooms. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and were great with the younger swimmers. Breakfast was amazing too, Would definitely stay again. Thanks to all of you. :-)

Very nice spacious and clean room, bathroom with a bathtub. No restaurant on the premises, but very good fine dining Rhubarb walking distance and a pub just across the street. Breakfast could have been better.

We stayed this hotel for 2 nights. Room was very clean but sink drain was choked up something and then, housekeeper didn't come and clean up our room. When they are coming? Our room was back side, some noise came from outside. It was very noisy and s noise offensive to the ear and didn't stop over night. It was like a generator, where from coming this noise? We stayed uncomfortable room and couldn't sleep well. Breakfast was very delicious and staff was friendly.

Stayed 3 nights and dined in two nights, as the restaurant food was top quality. The service was excellent and will be remembered above others over a 6 week trip. The bed was huge and very comfortable, the bathroom (newly renovated) well designed to fit so much in, given the space, HOWEVER, nowhere to put shampoo or soap thus having to bend down to the floor to retrieve said items. Definite slip risk as the floor is so shiny. (had to lay towel on floor for safety). Lastly, not enought room for TWO suitcases. Would recomment to anyone travelling to Edindurgh.
