Booked this place as our usual hotel was fully booked. The pictures on the web site where we booked this hotel look completely different. This place is student accommodation inside an educational centre of some sorts. Good points, nice friendly welcoming reception staff, again nice staff in the restaurant where we had breakfast, the bed nice an big and very...

Hotel reception friendly and efficient but that's about where the good news ends. The rooms although clean are fairly small and basic. However this is not where the problems really lie. The sounds which you can hear from other guests are truly epic. Our neighbours had a hair dryer on and it sounded although we had guests in our bathroom...

We've stayed here for 2 nights in the deluxe room. We were more than pleasantly surprised when we entered the lovely spacious room. Coffee making facilities are excellent with cafetière and nice coffee. The breakfast is lovely and more than enough choice for everyone. All the staff were absolutely amazing. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The bus stop is...

What a wonderful little find this was! Gorgeous hotel. Large room, clean and comfortable. Lovely modern bathroom. All staff were excellent and check in was very efficient! Breakfast was fantastic - one of the best I've ever had in any hotel! Highly recommended. Also about £8/9 in a taxi to central Edinburgh and a 15 minute bus ride, so ideally...

My wife and I stayed here for one night for our first visit to Edinburgh. We chose this place for its relatively low price and decent reviews on here. We were slightly apprehensive, given its campus location, that it would be a bit 'student digs' for us, but we needn't have worried. The campus location means its within walking distance...

I was very disappointed with the standard of hotel, especially for the price paid. There was hair in the bathroom, stains on the walls in the bedroom. The wood around the wardrobe was all chipped. The bathroom is very shabby and definately needs upgraded as does the decor in the bedroom. There is no shower cubicle - just a curtain...

Came here for a weekend getaway with my family that is visiting. The rooms are beyond underwhelming, small and not well maintained. The reception lady couldn't even offer us an upgrade for a better room. I've been to Edinburgh many times before and during high season like the fringe or Hogmanay and paid a little bit more for a way...

Really easy to get to from A1 or A68 travelling north. Once there, easy to walk into town centre or to get a bus. Every member of staff had a fabulous attitude towards customers. The young lady on reception did us a small courtesy on arrival which made my wife's birthday really special. Staff went out of their way to...

The house itself is part of the campus. Free parking which was great so we could leave the car and explore. The receptionist was exceptionally friendly, the room very small but tidy and with a comfortable bed. Breakfast was also very good, a good selection and you could order cooked breakfast too. For a trip to the city ideal, would...
