Stayed here for one night with 85 year old mother. Room was shabby, but clean(ish) and warm. Hadn't been vacuumed. Bedside light was falling apart . Only two small UHT packets of milk. Couldn't find anyone to ask for more so has to go to co-op to buy a pint. In the morning I tried to shower at 7am but no hot water. I tried to find a member of staff, but after searching and calling for 10 mins, returned to my room and called the hotel number on my mobile. I told the fellow who answered I was in room 23 and had run the shower for a good 10 mins, but water was freezing. He said he'd just switched on the boiler and to wait another 10 mins. I waited, tried again, but still no hot water. I called him again, but he said he couldn't help as the boiler was on and it should work. I asked to try another shower, but was refused. I had to boil the kettle and wash from the sink, as did my mother. The plug was broken so water kept draining. Asked where breakfast was being served and was told there was no food in the hotel as no-one had booked breakfast. I was unaware a booking had to be made for a B&B room. The receptionist hadn't offered that info when I checked in. When leaving I asked to see the manager to discuss a partial refund, but was told he wasn't available and to send an email instead. I wouldn't stay again. 3 stars are too many for this 'hotel'. More like a shabby, 70s youth hostel.

I Booked a single room for a week, room was very small but was very tidy and clean bathroom was lovely powerful shower, nothing can fault otherwise, free parking, bar was cheap and well worth it defiantly stay again

Room advertised as 'small twin'. Indeed it was but for £40 we weren't complaining. Friendly check-in, free WiFi, bar on site. Perfect for an overnight stay except for the occupants of the adjacent room who kept us awake until 2am due to paper-thin walls and total lack of consideration. Well we were up at 3:30 to catch an early flight so we certainly got our own back! :) :) Tiny bathroom but shower was nice. I'd stay again in the same circumstances (quick overnighter) but I wouldn't stay any longer than this.

Now the only reason this isn’t getting a worse review is the fact I booked it 5 hours before checkin on a Saturday evening and it was £38 which in Edinburgh or just outside Edinburgh is really really cheap, bed wasn’t that bad, the shower was good, and that is the most important thing for me in a cheap hotel, doesn’t matter how bad the night was if you leave fresh after a nice hot shower. Room was really small, smallest I’ve been in actually, the room included a free breakfast but unfortunately I was in a rush so couldn’t sample it. The next time I’m in Edinburgh and if I can get the price as close to this one I’ll stay again.

i had a nice stay there the hotel is basic but good for what it is also the bar is OK it s nice to have a pint of lager after work i stay there for 4 night the room was a bit small but the bedding was very comfy

After travelling for hours and arriving late on, me, my wife and my 2 year old turned up at this horrendous hotel, if I could give less than 1 star I would! The key had been left on the desk in an envelope (the staff had gone home!?!?!) Walking down the hallway the stench of stale urine hit us, the rooms were tiny, as was the telly that didn't work. We noticed in the morning the bottom of my son's bed was mouldy, the mattresses were full of mould spores, the bathroom you guessed it was mouldy, toilet roll holder was broken off and to top it off there was a block screwed in front of the window so it couldn't be opened... health and safety fire exit? This place should be shut down!

Absolutely tiny room. Bed wedged against wall. The smallest TV I have ever seen that could only be watched from certain angles. The creaking wood noises from above and the hallway woke us up. Breakfast cheapest bread, cold boiled egg and Lardy old croissants - the worst I have ever had. Yes this was cheap but even so wasn't value for money.

Stayed here for one night as due to Other circumstances or other Accommodation was not available so booked on line as needed a couple of rooms quickly. Found rooms though small to be clean and comfy. Bed was with free view, kettle and private shower room. Bar downstairs was cheap. Hotel was quiet at night. Breakfast was a continental one . Ok for £5. Staff friendly.

i stay here for one night with my two daughter its was a very nice stay the building is a bit old but the bedding was comfy and the room was ok i was happy for i get for i paid the lady Barbara at the reception was nice

I stayed here for work purposes and it is by far the worst contractors hostel I have ever stayed I. Suspicions to the level of cleanliness were raised when I noticed the very dark brown carpets and black small towels. Some one opened our door at 06:30 in the morning,with a key , so obviously a staff member and when I questioned it later was told that it was because our vehicle was blocking someone in the car park, amazing as we couldn't get in the car park and had parked around the corner in the street. I slept on top of the bed the whole week. A true dump.
