Above average”
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.

A good hotel with spacious room and affordable price”
The hotel is located in an area that is a bit far from the city centre. It is close to a bus terminal and a shopping mall. The breakfast is good. the room is large.

express formula, no-nonsense
decent hotel, but a bit old, still clean. Rooms are rather small and price was still pretty high. Enough to do in the neighbourhood, nice shopping mall, restaurants etc.
