      Hotel is located outskirt of Edinburgh city which is very quiet and we like it that way. There is a harbor nearby if you are interested to look at. Many big cruises and ships.

      Not a lot for the money”
      One thing to be clear about, the name implies it is on the waterfront. It isn't. It's on the Edinburgh Waterfront complex that consists of a shopping mall and apartments. There are old dock basins close by which can be seen from the upper floors but not immediately adjacent. However, as an Express type hotel, it is okay, nothing special. Good reception staff and a quick check in and a clean room. The bathroom could have done with very minor touching up but it was fine with a decent hot shower. The down-lighting for the surround mirrors wasn't very good for ladies who like to have a bright light for make-up, but the entrance had a big mirror which had better lighting. The room itself was small but adequate, having quiet air-conditioning and a kettle with tea and coffee. However, there was only two tea bags, enough for one drink each, so I phoned reception for room service but was told there wasn't any. I'd have to go down to get more teabags, which I did. The staff were apologetic but it was hotel policy, not their unwillingness. The bed was fine, a small double but comfortable. TV was okay with plenty to watch and good reception. One thing that could have been better was luggage storage. It was woefully inadequate. We had to use the two seater settee to put our bags on. There was also a tiny open cupboard with a few hangers. Breakfast was average. However with only three items on the menu, scrambled egg, sausages and beans, it could have been much better. No bacon, no mushrooms, no tomatoes etc. There were cereals, toast, tea and coffee and fruit juice, so it was just about okay. Finally, car parking. Okay if you get there early but it appeared to get very busy at times with only one space when we arrived on night. So, final verdict. With a shopping mall and the Royal Yacht Brittania attraction across the road and a quiet location, this hotel is fine for a short stay. Nothing special and very overpriced for what you get. But so is the rest of Edinburgh.

      One of the best i've staye in”
      Everything, especially the staff, receptionist was a delight - 'can do' type, bedroom great, breakfast great.
      This was the highlight of my year so far. A receptionist who made me feel welcome immediately and proud to be Scottish! For travellers from other countries this is extremely important. I had the best nights sleep for a long time and the breakfast was very tasty. Wifi available in the foyer area with comfortable chairs. Other staff were also helpful. Need I say more, lovely location and for my purpose very close to my business meeting and all booked through agoda .Will certainly stay there again, and expect to be back soon. Highly recommended.

      Pillow sheets were stained , there was a napkin crumpled which fell out when we unravelled one of the towels. Room is well worn. Staff were cold. Been traveling around Scotland for past three weeks staying in various hotels , a couple of holiday inns and I have to say this is a joke. Worst by far.

      Ideal location”
      Reasonably priced, clean rooms
      The hotel has a handy location just a few minutes walk from the waterfront at Leith. The rooms are pretty much what you expect from a hotel of this type - clean and comfortable but not particularly spacious or individual. Bathroom was clean, and the shower was good quality. Staff were friendly and efficient, but the breakfast is not that great (though it is thrown in for the price).

      Warm service, clean and tidy room, big breakfast
      The rooms were tidy and clean. The breakfast was big, same holiday inn express standard. The staff was helpful in teaching you where to dine and visit. The bus no. 22 was convenient to get to the city centre and the railway station. The bus no. 35 to Airport takes a long time. Should take 22 then exchange 100 express at the railway station if in a hurry.
