I stayed at this hotel for the past 2 nights, and it's pretty nice. We took a taxi from EDI (roughly £35), though it looks like you could also take the #35 bus as well. Rooms have been refurbished in the past few years, so they're in decent shape. I couldn't tell a difference between the soft and firm pillows; both were a bit harder than I like! Decent linens, and the towels are bath sheets...which are greatly appreciated! The free breakfast was good, with a variety of yogurts, breads, cereals and some hot items like eggs and sausage. Oh, there is an ice machine in the lobby too.
The Ocean Terminal across the street has some good restaurant options (Wagamama, Frankie and Benny's, Zizzi, Pizza Express, etc.), lots of shops and a M&S grocery store.
The staff was great and were very helpful. You can catch a city centre bus into Edinburgh right in front of the hotel. The #22 bus will drop you by Palace of Holyroods.
Good hotel, and I'd stay there again! More
