Still impressed with this hotel, excellent rooms and service at a really good rate. This time I ate in the restaurant off the £12.95 "early" menu (before 7pm) and had three really good courses - I'd have happily paid twice that amount in a restaurant in the city centre for food of that quality.

This hotel check in was very efficient and the room very comfortable, but a bit hot during the course of the night.
Public transport to Princes Street area leaves from beside this hotel.
Dinner was fine although I had never had the sweet course served up in a teacup before this occasion.
The leisure facilities were very good too.
Only downside was the extremely wet weather which prevented us from leaving the hotel at time of visit. However that cannot be held against the establishment.

We stayed for the weekend and were pleased with the hotel. It was very nice,well decorated and modern. All the staff were very friendly.
The hotel also has a very nice gym and swimming baths,also a sauna. I didnt get a chance to use these facilities as we had plans for the whole weekend but I wish I could have asthey looked great.
The breakfast was very nice as was our evening meal although there wasn't a lot of choice on the menu.
The only thing that let it down slightly was the service at the bar. Wasnt busy but still it took a long time to get a drink.

The whole hotel was nice and modern and the rooms were clean. Slightly out of city-centre but regular bus service so no problem. Only downfall to the hotel was that it couldn't cope with the numbers of guests coming down for breakfast at one time. On both mornings, you had to queue to wait for sausages or beans etc to come through, sometimes as long as ten mintutes. However, the breakfast was good when you got it. I would still go back to this hotel however, you just need a bit of patience. Better management is all that is required.

Dear Gilb84

Thank you very much for your comments. My apologies that the breakfast service you experienced was not up to our usual high standards. We did have a higher than expected volume of guests wishing to take breakfast on a recent weekend and my apologies if this had an impact on your stay.

Any comments are always greatly received as it helps us to continually improve our service so thank you once again for taking the time and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind regards.

Capital Manager

Lovely clean and modern hotel, well connected to the city by Lothian bus routes , the staff were very helpful, and the staff organised a cot to be placed for my 8 week old no problem at no extra costs.

We stayed here for a Christmas party in December. First impressions were good, modern, light hotel, nice welcome, good distance from airport, easy check in. They had a problem with the lift that day with people getting stuck in it and we'd heard from other guests that it had happened on previous days. The room was modern, clean and spacious although the bathroom needed a little bit more cleaning. In my view the hotel had booked far too many people for their Christmas party although the service and food quality was good. There was however, someone being sick just a few metres away from where breakfast was being served the next day, people fighting, police turning up, someone throwing a chair. Not what I expected and we went to bed early to get away from this. We were located over the function room so it was noisy until early morning. Check out was straight forward but we felt that the staff on reception were a bit sharp with us when they were at their busiest. If you avoid any party nights and just want a base to explore Edinburgh this might be a good choice, other than that I wouldn't go again.
