My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel this week and have nothing but good words about the place. Our room was on the second floor and was lovely, clean and spacious. There was plenty of light from the windows and ampules amount of room for all our belongings. We found reception very helpful when asking staff about transport (taxi and buses) and about eating in the hotels restaurant. We ate in the restaurant twice ( once for breakfast and a two course evening meal) both were fantastic. Everything made that bit easier by being able to charge everything to our room and settling later. Overall a very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of visiting Edinburgh.

Stopped at this hotel from the 18th to 23rd of February 2014. All I can say is what a fantastic hotel. As the hotel was t expensive I wasn't expecting anything as near as this hotel. It was very clean and had a big room. The staff were very nice and friendly the restaurant had lovely food and the bar had a nice atmosphere. The location is a bit away from the center but there is basically a bus stop two minutes away from the hotel that you can catch many different buses to anywhere you want to go in the city.

My boyfriend and I spent a week here in the middle of Feb after getting a great deal on the room. The hotel was excellent and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The room has all the facilities needed and the bed was absolutely huge! Definitely recommend using the healh club during your stay, pool was excellent to wind down in after a long day out.
As for the location...brilliant! The hotel was extremely close to a bus stop which had many routes into town and passed the zoo too, which was very handy! Prices were very reasonable with a day ticket only being £3.50. Only problem is that you need the exact change for the bus fayre, but notes can be easily exchanged in the hotel reception.
As for eating, we did not eat in the hotel, however I would recommend cafe rosa for lunch (get the no.26 bus to Corstorphine) and wannaburger which is in town and serves great snacks!
All in all a great week and we didn't wanna leave! Cannot fault the hotel at all!

The stay at hotel was lovely. It was clean; I am very particular about bathrooms and the bathroom was spotless.
The food was great and the services also. The first day we arrived the receptionist was not as friendly as I would have liked, there was another girl the next day who was very good.
Easy access to town on bus 26.
The only thing I did not like about the room was that we could hear everything from the next room.

stayed here as a family of four for four nights during feb half term, found all the staff friendly and helpful, nothing was a problem for them, even a good morning from the maid most days, the room was superb, large room and huge comfortable bed, although pillows were firm, this was my only letdown otherwise 11 out of 10, the views we had of the mountains and forth bridge were fantastic, used the pool most days, changing rooms were clean and well equipped, plenty of showers, lockers, hairdryers etc. never used the gym but looked good too. we were room only but we tried breakfast there one of the days which was great, the bread especially nice, fairly quiet and relaxed was £10 per adult, but kids eat free which makes it a good price. overall the hotel seemed as good as a 4* Hilton or similar if not better, but the price a lot lower making it really great value, buses running past the hotel frequently and Edinburgh easily accessible by car too. a great base for exploring or a city break. overall a very clean & friendly hotel. would definiately stay again if up that way.

Room Tip: we had room 217,rear of hotel 2nd floor excellent views.

Dear Reviewer,

Thanks for the detailed feedback, very pleasing to read that the team and all our facilities including the pool went down well with you.

In regards to the pillows, which really is a personal preference, its because of this we have implemented a "pillow menu" that way guests can pick the right one for them, as we really do want our guests to have a great nights sleep!

Thanks again for the comments and the 5 star rating.

First visit to this hotel and it wont be the last. Stayed 7th-8th Feb '14 and the staff and hotel were very good. the breakfast certainly set us up for the days out in Edinburgh as every thing any guest could want was avaliable and the breakfast times werevery relaxed. We recently stayed at the Sheraton in Edinburgh and the Capital was just as good and better value for money
