Great location and a great hotel. We had a family room which was adequate but too warm and the TV did not work particularly well a bit of an issue when you have two tired kids at the end of a busy day looking for some chill time.

Disappointing stay at the Novotel. I actually cancelled another hotel to stay here so we could use the pool, wish I hadn’t now. It was ok. Parking for a start was hard! Was told there were no spaces but when we looked there were loads. Asked for a double room, got a twin, no mention of my requests. Toilet in room was tiny, no mirrors in right places, tea and coffee not replenished, even asking twice for it to be done. Loo roll ran out and again not replaced. Just a load of agro to he honest when we wanted a nice relaxing stay

Lovely room for 2 adults and 2 children. Perfect for an overnight stay in Edinburgh. Breakfast cost £10 per adult children free. With 3 children in our party a great saving.One coffee machine was not working which meant a long wait . That was the only negative about our stay. Will definetly use this hotel again.

The rooms were nice and breakfast was delicious. Ordered room service twice and both times had to call multiple times and also try reception as no one picked up on the room service line. Changing rooms for the pool are far too small. Otherwise nice trip

The room was clean and functional, with a good central location. However, the hotel lacked in service (delays in responding to issues, staff disorganised and lacking in training, took hours to find an alternative pillow) and the breakfast buffet was of poor quality.
