    Exceptional”

    Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating to our needs. Hotel was clean and tidy and perfectly situated giving our room a view of the river beside the premises. Just a five minute walk from Haymarket station and a £8 taxi ride to the Royal Mile. If you like art, the Modern Art Museum is directly across the road with beautiful gardens and the graveyard next to it is well worth a visit also.

    Short visit to Edinburgh”

    We only stayed 1 night as we had come to specifically attend 1 event. However, the hotel was ideal for the purpose and we intend to return for a longer visit. The hotel is an ex Travelodge hotel but to a slightly better standard. It took about 20 minutes to walk to Princes Street but is about 5 minutes from several bus and tram routes. The paid car park was a useful place to leave the car during the day. Breakfast and evening meals are available, The staff were all friendly and helpful.

    1 hour check in but overall nice hotel”

    Arrived at the hotel at 9pm, computers were down so they couldn’t check in guests, a long queue started to form. Waited over an hour but our room was upgraded for the trouble which we were very pleased with. Room nice, clean and quiet. Deserves better than the ratings it has. One thing I will say though is that there was 1 member of staff to cover reception and bar, whilst the girl was trying to overcome the system issue, angry and disgruntled customers at the bar were shouting at her to serve them. One more staff member would’ve made all the difference to minimise the pressure that girl was under.

    Great hotel in Edinburgh ”

    Arrived early in Edinburgh and they let us check in which is really great. The staff is wonderful during our stay and the room is huge enough for 2 person. The location is about 20 minutes walk from the Old Town. Uber will cost you around 3 pound per way. For the price that I paid, I would say it was a bargain

    Stayed as a couple before we could take off to the highlands on a 3 day tour. A nice comfortable stay, extremely reasonable and nice rooms. A phone specially at the reception which you can use to call a cab anytime. Very close to Waverly station and Royal Mile with a 10 minute cab ride.

    We was 8 couples that have attended for Edinburgh Christmas Market We realy liked all at the hotel .... the only thing we can say is hotel is bit away from city centre. as we was mostly all over 60+ to get tram/bus still we had appx 20 minutes walk and as trams appx was £1.75 we have decided to take taxis very easy to have from hotel by free phone.. taxi for 4 always was under £10 so we managed .... Buffet breakfast was very nice for just under £8 .... buffet dinner was ok too and JUST under £11 .... I wonder why all those bad reviews in tRipadvisor regards this hotel ..... If such born complainers need better they should look and book a 5 stars hotel .... this hotel it was a great value for money hotel .

    You will enjoy staying there. Specially if you get a lake view room. ”

    Though the hotel is a bit old but the stuffs are friendly and helpful. The heater on our room wasn’t working. So i reported in the reception. After i came back to my room i saw a new heater hanging. So that’s great. Rooms are well enough and clean. They have a bar and a restaurant on the ground floor. But You have to walk at least 1 km for any restaurent or bar if you don’t want to take food there.

    Close to centre and clean ”

    Was located very close to city centre which was great. There were no clear times as to when meals were served so I went down on a couple of occasions and was told I couldn’t eat (one one of these occasions there was a couple eating a meal at a table and another guest had just been served a tray of food to take to her room). Staff mostly seemed like they couldn’t be bothered / were bored except for the lady on the front desk who was lovely and seemed smiley and helpful. Room was great, good shower/bathroom and was cleaned daily. Overall I guess you get what you pay for but would expect staff to act a little more upbeat and was a tad annoyed about the food!

    Decent hotel with friendly staff and good value for money. ”

    As a couple, we got a good deal which was good value for money with a nice sized room and excellent facilities. It even had a bathtub which was a nice surprise. The hotel was about 20 minutes from city centre with some nice surroundings. The hotel had a nice lounge area, cafe and friendly staff who were great and genuinely seemed happy to help. The only things that brought the hotel down was that the lift to our floor was out of order (which was an inconvenience but not a major issue) and that the smoking area was a mess. The fence was a bit high and the area was cluttered. If the area was cleared out with a lower fence, it would have been a nice little chill out area with a wonderful overview of the river.
