My family (2 ‘auld yins’ and 2 teens) stayed in 2 double ensuite rooms for 3 nights from 15th to 17th August as part of our Edinburgh and Highland drive-tour. Masson House is an attractive hotel within the grounds of a university student residence complex. The rooms were not spacious but were still big enough, comfortable, clean and well-presented. The staff, including housekeeping, were all very friendly and helpful. Security is well-considered, with electronic pass-keys in and out of the building for late-night entry. Parking is first-come, first-serve in several nearby parts of the grounds, but I always found a spot for my hired mini-bus. Food isn’t served within Masson House itself, nor is room-service available. However, a short walk round the corner leads to a large university self-service refectory with adjacent bar. It brought back my student days but the food is far better nowadays ! A hearty full Scottish breakfast was just what was needed to start off a busy tourist day. The refectory was bursting with international tourists and Mexican performers for the Edinburgh Tattoo which all made for a very cosmopolitan, bustling atmosphere. I also liked the free hotel wall-phone directly connected to a taxi switchboard which could organize a taxi within minutes, very welcome, as city-centre parking is difficult to find and we preferred taking taxis to buses. The hotel helped make our Edinburgh stay so enjoyable.
