This is not a hotel but more of a guesthouse.
Price, comfortable beds, clean
I was very disappointed to find that The Ben Doran Hotel is not a hotel in my opinion. It is a guesthouse. There is no common areas to sit and relax, no bar to socialize in, no leisure facilities. The checkout time is 10.30 which is very early, the breakfast is served for a very limited time 8.00-9.30 at weekends 8.00-9.00 on weekdays. The bed was very comfortable and it is clean. I needed some forgotten items returned to me by post and after multiple phone calls I just had to leave it as they were not helpful and kept requesting that I call back at different times. I would not recommend this hotel to a friend. When returning to Edinburgh I will pay a little extra for an actual hotel.

Normal b&b
Clean, parking, big room
So so hotel, difficult find when you arrive at the evening, nothing much in breakfast, some rooms havent bath, have to check out at 1030. But their have a car park if you drive to the hotel. The hotel offer free wifi and the room we stay are big and clean. Nothing impressive, the price is expensive comparing with the service offering.

Very relaxing and comfortable.
Good staff, nice room design and lovely breakfast.
The hotel was basically a house/mansion converted to a hotel like many others on that street. The staff was good and overall the room was in very good condition. We felt very comfortable throughout and all electronic items functioned well. Breakfast was excellent. The hotel is just near to a bus stop and there are frequent buses to the city which take only 12-15 minutes to reach.
