May it be well located, may it have a kind receptionist, may it be relatively cheap...but I won't repite such a dissapointing experience. Rooms were tiny and scarcely furnished, bath is terrible (not a shower case, but a nude hole on the floor, no mirror, almost no nothing). Industrial breakfast served in a kind of convention center near the hotel, on a "take something and run" basis. However, it might be an interesting place if you like to hear what are your neighbours doing by night: walls are so thin it's like all customers were sleeping together. In the morning, you can awake with the snoozer of any of them, and share their comments about the shower temperature. Basic is not exactly the word for it, definitely it is "poor"...and not cheap enough. A visit to Edinburgh deserves a better rest.

Room tip: The best tip is: run and find another place to sleep!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff are very friendly, efficient and helpful, and the breakfast is superb! We have never had a better breakfast - there was a great selection of fruit, cheese, jams and cereals, as well as a fantastically-cooked breakfast. In the evening, we went downstairs and sat in the lounge with a drink and relaxed until we were ready for bed. The building itself is full of character - our room was very comfortable and clean, as was the bathroom which had a spacious shower. The only slight complaint is that the loo seat is quite uncomfortable - the brim seems very narrow. Other than that, there was no fault found, and I would highly recommend this hotel.

A large stone house located in the campus of Edinburgh university , and under strict security at the time of our stay , due to the nearby pool being used for the Commonwealth Games, the Sailsbury Green is an eclectic and eccentric place to stay.
Our room was on the ground floor and designated 'disabled'. At the time of booking we had booked and paid for a larger room - which it certainly was. The bedroom itself was clean, comfortable and large, whilst the bathroom was a wet room , with disabled shower etc. As neither of us are disabled we had to adjust (one should obviously not say 'disable') the seat in order to shower. The floor was very slippery when wet.I was also very disappointed with the quality of the towels on offer- they were clean but very well worn.
Check in is at the nearby Masson House, where the staff were very friendly.
Breakfast is the only meal avaiable in the hotel itself - but what a breakfast! I would recommend the experience!
For an evening meal nearby , if you don't want to go into Edinburgh itself, there is the nearby Sailsbury Arms hotel, or the refrectory and bar in the complex. If you want to eat at the refrectory you have to be there before 7.30 (we weren't) but the food at the bar is more than adequte. Room service was advertised but we didn't try it. Beware impatient cleaning staff as well!
The location is about 20 minutes from the centre of the city, with a beautiful hill behind, and was a perfect place to leave the car and explore by foot and public transport. Be warned - buses in Edinburgh do not give change, so you are expected to have the correct fare .
Overall this was good place to stay.

Room tip: Be aware that asking for a larger room may mean you get disabled facilities.

Very well located within walking distance of many of Edinburgh's attractions, yet quiet and comfortable. On site parking was very useful. Room was small and basic but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of freshly prepared choices.

Although it was a bit difficult to find because of construction around the site, it was worth the effort. The hotel is located in an old stone mansion in a garden setting with a hill rising in the background. The first-floor room was pleasant and comfortable, with views of the greenery.

It's about a 15-20 minute walk to the center and the many attractions that Edinburgh has to offer.

Wonderful breakfast - full Scottish and cold buffet choices.

Note that reception is in a nearby building.
