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.

Hotel's Favourite
Excellent hotel, spotlessly clean, outstanding decor. Great bar with attentive staff, tasty nibbles and a funky setting. George checked us in and it was a fantastic experience, instantly making us feel welcome and he gave us an outstanding introduction to the things to do in town. Location is close to the castle and the main shopping street. There was no hot water for one day of our stay, which may have been bad luck, bad maintenance or a lack of a backup system, we have no way of knowing, it was restored later in the day.

We stayed at The Voco hotel for 4 days last week. We were very impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of all of the staff. The hotel is in a great location. Our room was spotless, clean and comfortable. Modern bathroom with shampoo, conditioner, body wash. hand and body lotion. Shower was lovely and hot. Tea, coffee facilities, bottles of water, complimentary biscuits. The room also had an iron, ironing board and hair dryer. The restaurant is bright and colourful with comfy seating as well as tables to sit at. Breakfast was buffet style, great selection of food available, hot and cold. Good choice of food for dinner. Presented lovely! Special shout out to Jay and Holly who were outstanding on a very busy night!! They worked so hard, it was such a pleasure to chat to you both!!

Picked this hotel to stay for our first anniversary we were not disappointed. The hotel is very modern and clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a buffet which we enjoyed very much. The only downside was we were seated at the large windows and it was chilly plus our food was cold very quick, but we would definitely stay here again :)

The location is just a short walk from Haymarket Train station and it's in a good location to visit Grassmarket. I thought the modern decor of the hotel was impressive and the hotel staff were friendly & welcoming. The buffet breakfast was lovely too, with a great variety of breakfast items and fruit juices. I would return!

Stayed in this hotel a few times now and never had a an issue till this visit and it wasn't even the room or anything it was the food. The menu had just changed which I was fine with but the chefs were not aware of how to plate up the new menu as there was things on my food that shouldn't have been meaning wrong ingredients which I normally again wouldn't mind but I feel the things they put on did not compliment the food or work with it in anyway and when the menu says something else that is what you in your mind expect to get.

Location good, five minute walk from Haymarket and another five minute walk to the end of Princes St. Very friendly welcome, IHG status recognised and given an upgrade to a room with a Jet bath. The hotel is very clean and modern and the rooms are very clean and tidy, very nice bathroom. The upgraded room was, however, very small and felt quite cramped. There was also no desk in the room which was not great as I was travelling on business - just two small single chairs by the window. Very nice breakfast. I’d stay again with my partner as the location is fine and the hotel is nice, just not when on business.

Lovely hotel, really enjoyed out stay. A little out of the way, about 30 minutes walk from the main part of Edinburgh but we didn’t mind. All the staff were super friendly and the room was very clean and pretty big. We were very pleased with our stay and would 100% stay there again if we go back!
