“I Love The Apex Hotels!”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

I have stayed here a few times on business as it is well located and provides good value for money. The customer service of all of my visits has been excellent and i even received a complimentary upgrade the last time i stayed.
The service from the reception staff has always been great. The rooms are very clean and very well presented. The food is also good.

Although my visits have been for business i would definitely stay here for personal visits and wouldn’t look at any other hotels as this one is priced well and offers a lot for your money.

Excellent stay at this hotel for the second time, for no reason other than as a treat away from home. Lovely relaxing hotel with great facilities. We did try a trip somewhere else as a change but ended up back here as we knew it could not be faulted.

The hotel was easily reached from Waverley train station. The staff were friendly and helpful. They gave my son a map and marked all the places we were going to visit, so he was delighted with that.
We had a lovely, big family room. The pool was great, and the breakfast was lovely too! Will definately go back!

I booked this hotel based on its Tripadvisor reviews for a weekend away. We were in a standard room and unfortunately did not benefit from an upgrade as many contributors seem to have done. The room looked over a back yard area and was quite hemmed in by other buildings, and as the windows were locked it felt quite claustrophobic. Other than that, the room was comfortable enough, if slightly small and a little devoid of character.The spa and pool however were a disappointment. The pool was barely big enough to swim in with only 4 people in felt crowded. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the location was extremely convenient.

On arrival we were upgraded to the master suite for no extra charge for no reason! which was absolutely amazing, 2 floors with a toilet on each, 2 huge teles, a free standing bath and separate power shower, his and hers sinks, slippers, dressing gowns and huge bed. Room was immaculately clean and tidy freshly stocked with decent toiletry products and refreshments. Used the pool (slightly small though), sauna and steam room all very good. All the staff make you so welcome and nothing is a trouble for them. Even when we were checking out they asked if we wanted to leave our bags there whilst we enjoyed Edinburgh until the train came. Location wise it is very good - 3 minute walk from the station and 10 minute walk to restaurants etc. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed here for two nights and would definitely recommend this hotel. Not only is it comfortable but the location is fantastic, literally a few minutes walk and you hit Princes Street and all the action.

We were upgraded to one of their suites on arrival which was a pleasant surprise. The suite we stayed in had a living area with large tv with Bose speakers and a nespresso machine. The room was spacious with a big (think its queen size) bed and the bathroom was huge with a nice bath tub, rain shower and fluffy towels, bath robes and slippers.

We only encountered a minor problem during our stay which was the strong winds making loud rattling noises to the windows. However everything else about the hotel made up for this and I would definitely return to this hotel.
