Perfectly fine

Hotel was a reasonable cost in Festival season. The street works outside have been going on for over a year and cause disruption. Almost missed flight due to power sockets not working and phone not charging otherwise ok.

Weekend Getaway

We stayed at the hotel for the weekend as we had tickets to a show on the Saturday night. Price was very reasonable considering that it was only a few pounds more than leading cheap travel chains. Had dinner in the restaurant on the first night and service was very friendly and quick. Food was served hot and tasted delicious. The selection for continental breakfast both mornings was good but feel there could have been a slightly better selection/better presentation at the bar. The room looked exactly as it did on the website. Feather duvet on the bed and mattress was very comfy. Bathroom could have done with some TLC as grout in middle of double shower was a bit dingy and the door didn't stay closed properly so caused a small puddle outside. Hotel was quiet at night and slept soundly. Thought there'd have been more noise from outside but no issues. Located only ten to fifteen minutes from Princes Street and only a few minutes froom Haymarket station. Couldn't have chosen better.

Happy Hotel

Lovely greeting from the reception on arrival. The room was perfectly clean and very well presented. Even managed to get parking which was a bonus. The hotel restaurant serves excellent food and the service was friendly/ efficient. The position in the West End was perfect for access to the castle, museums and botanical gardens. Will definitely stay again instead of using the Travelodge.

Visit Home

Friendly and helpful staff. Room a little on the small side but clean, warm and comfortable. Excellent location for us as very close to Haymarket station and also only a 15 minute walk from Princes Street. Food and drink prices in the hotel are expensive compared to other local bars and restaurants. However, as Edinburgh is my home town I know where to go and where not to go. Would I stay there again? Yes!

Great hotel

Its a fantastic hotel which is just a ten minute walk to Princes Street (the main shopping street) and castle etc, it is a little bit out but its cheaper than staying in the centre and the ten minute walk is nothing, would definitely go back there.

friendly hotel in a friendly town

We enjoyed our stay a lot. The welcome at the hotel was friendly, as was the service at the restaurant. The breakfast was tasty, and dinner was good quality for price. The Haymarket terrace side was at the time of our visit a bit of a construction site, but on another side of the hotel there's a beautiful old school building. A few hundred meters away it is possible to go walking or jogging along the river. The hotel is located a bit off (some 10-15 mins walk) the old town and most touristy areas, so choosing a more central hotel may be a good option if this bothers you, but we found the location quite convenient, and the surroundings pleasant.
