It was close to several good restaurants. However, the breakfast was the same each day.

Room was spacious and very clean, breakfast was included in price, plenty of choice, but be aware you might not get a table at peak times. Parking is available and the Ocean Terminal, with shops, restaurants, coffee shops and the Vue cinema is just across the road.

Welcoming staff and good location

Pros: Great location Geat staff
Location: Excellent location with great transport links for getting into the city with Ocean Terminal and Brittania just across the road
The hotel staff were great upon arrival going above and beyond what is expected. The room was tidy and clean and I only knocked it back due to a small tear on the duvet cover

Comfortable Hotel

Pros: Comfort, cleanliness, friendliness.
Cons: There could me slightly more choice for breakfast and the bread was a little bit dry.
Location: Convenient for shops/eateries and the Royal Yacht. Easy to get into Edinburgh city centre.
The hotel was comfortable and clean and the staff were friendly and obliging. It is in a position in Leith that makes it convenient for the Royal Yacht Britannia and the shops/eateries.

Great hotel.

Lovely hotel close to Edinburgh centre and right next door to ocean terminal shopping centre. Family of four managed comfortably, free wifi a definate bonus, breakfast thrown in made life with two kids easier. Ice machine in reception a big hit with kids. Clean rooms, lovely staff, ample parking. Highly recommended. £66 for 4 people with breakfast, absolute bargain.
