Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stayed in apex for our 10 wedding anniversary and was very happy. When we got there there had been a water leak and the whole hotel had been evacuated, the staff were informative and super helpful despite getting a lot of stick from other guests. We went back out for a bit while the hotel stored our luggage. We were upgraded and our room was amazing, would recommend room 1001 - it has a fabulous view. We order room service, had breakfast in the restaurant and also had room service breakfast too. All of these were amazing and we were very impressed! Only thing that let the stay down was the pool and spa. The pool was cold, the spa was disorganised, no towels, robes or slippers to use but the treatments are amazing so this did make up for the bad points

We stayed here for our first visit to Edinburgh Scotland we received exceptional service from Katrina. She was extremely friendly, funny and accommodating. She upgraded our room for free upon arrival which was a lovely touch for me and my partner. On our first night we got engaged and the following upon our return to the hotel we asked for a late check out. Originally Katrina advised us we could have it for free until 12pm but when she found out my partner had proposed she upgraded us AGAIN to a free 2pm check out. We shared confidences such as our dogs sharing the same name and we felt this was fate. Half an hour later we got a knock at our door and she gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne and note from the hotel staff congratulating us on our engagement. We cannot thank Katrina and the hotel staff for everything they done as they truly made our whole stay one we will never forget!

I have just requested to TripAdvisor to remove my review so I could resubmit with 4 out of 5 - Very Good instead of 3 - Average, Location - perfect! We have stayed here before & this is the reason we rebooked. It certainly wasn't the cheapest, but we decided it was the best value for money based on the location. Premium room was a good size, bed was comfortable, bathroom was good. Room was clean. I was a bit surprised to get instant Nescafe coffee sachets though & not have a Nespresso machine. Very happy with the dressing table area / mirror / hairdryer. We stayed at a hotel in London recently that had no mirror near a plug & the hairdryer they provided was built in, so I was glad to see this room was better in that respect. I always wonder whether or not to pack my own hairdryer as it takes up so much space, but I took a gamble & left mine at home & used the hotel one & it was fine. I think our room was next to a store cupboard (room 607) so there was a bit of noise in the mornings as the cleaners started, but my husband seemed to happily sleep through it, unlike me, but I am a light sleeper. We didn't get off to the best start, we arrived at 1:50pm check in I was told was 2pm & yet on arrival we were told our room wouldn't be ready for an hour, so we reluctantly had lunch in the bar, the service was dreadful, so by 2:30pm we were quite annoyed & ready to find another hotel, however George on Reception was very apologetic & accommodating. There was a water leak which affected some rooms during our stay so there as a bit of commotion, the spa was temporarily closed, but reopened just as we wanted to visit, unfortunately the steam room as still warming up, but that didn't take too long. The sauna & steam room is quite small, so it's a bit hit & miss of being able to us it, on our first visit, the sauna was just too busy, but the next day (probably because it had been closed due to the water leak & had only just reopened) we did manage to use both sauna & steam room although we had to wait for the steam room to warm up. Tip.Take £1 coin to use the lockers. After the spa we went back to our room & we had no hot water, we had dinner reservations so didn't have tome to complain, had a quick cold shower & later that evening the water temp had returned to normal. I would stay here again if the price was right. I'm going to give service 4 out of 5 because that's an average, a couple of staff members would only get a 1 but a couple (George being one) were exceptional. We get the Airlink bus from the airport, the bus stop is 5 minutes walk away outside TKMax.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, delicious breakfast. Spa facilities were nice & clean. The massage was lovely in spa, which we pre-booked. I emailed reception before hand, as it was my partners special birthday and they arranged a birthday package at a reasonable price, which included banner, balloons, a lovely cake and a 12pm late check out, this was a great touch. Great location for hotel too. Lovely stay here.

Excellent base to meet friends in Edinburgh for a 1 night stay. 10th floor standard double room was large, had a king sized bed, and a partial castle view. Usual tea and coffee amenities plus extras like popcorn, water, robes and slippers. Location is great for the east side of the city and train and bus stations. Shopping, bars, and restaurants only minutes walk away. Both of us slept well. Yes its perhaps a wee bit tired in places but for the £120 we paid for B & B we couldn't fault it.
