My boyfriend took me to Edingburgh for my birthday in April, we drove up and spent 3 nights at this hotel. The navigator found the hotel easy and there are plenty of parking spaces so we never had a problem with that. The hotel staff were very friendly when we checked in and throughout our stay. The hotel room was lovely and the view was brilliant, such a lovely sight to wake up. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom reasonably sized with a lovely shower!
We went to Edinburgh to see the pandas at Edinburgh zoo! This was perfect location as it was a five minute drive down the road to the zoo. I personally recommend if you are going to stay at this hotel then take the time to go to the zoo, its a brilliant day out and the pandas were adorable (You have to book to see the pandas in advance which isn't a major problem).
Back to the hotel! There is a bus stop right around the corner from the hotel which takes you straight in to town, again very handy! We decided not to drive into the city centre because there was tram work going on when we went and it made things very hectic! But because the bus stops were close and fairly simple it was not problem.
The restaurant, bar and the pool at the hotel are brilliant, and again I must praise how lovely the staff were! Every night we went to the bar for a drink and they were always so lovely.
I would recommend this hotel highly to anyone! Its near the zoo and has easy access into the city centre! We are already planning to go back again :)
