Good weekend hotel

We were in Edinburgh for a family wedding so just needed a comfortable cheap hotel for a night and this fit the bill. Not too far from the City Centre and sat opposite the Ocean Terminal which was perfect for an evening meal out. Free parking was a big bonus.

Lovely weekend break

Stayed there for 2 nights, it's right by the bus stop where we can reach the Royal Mile or Holyrood in about 20 minutes, so it's pretty handy for sightseeing. Breakfast offer a good range of food options, and staff was friendly and helpful. The bed was well comfortable! Would recommend this hotel to anyone who's in Edinburgh for a city break.

Friendly Scotland

The staff were warm and friendly and a great source of information. They helped make sure you knew where to go, how to get there and shared the secrets of day trips. Rooms are small but that is the norm in this part of the world but they were clean. The room did need some storage space since there is no drawers. Overall our experience was great.
