We stayed at this hotel for four nights, taking in two shows in Edinburgh. The hotel is about 3.5 miles from the city centre. there is a Bus terminus round the corner for three different bus routes.
Going to Gyle centre, City Centre via Leith and Seton Sands via City Centre.
There was a reasonably priced dinner menu. With an early evening special menu at a slightly cheaper rate before 7 pm. I used the leisure centre once during the stay. It was busy and local people use it regularly. The Pool was clean, you could see the far side underwater, although it was a little over chlorinated for my personal taste. The Gym was also busy and there were two training personnel in attendance to answer any questions.
The only downside was that the floorboards are slightly creaky and if you had active neighbours above you this might be a problem. (I stay in a second floor flat and do not get this problem).It did not bother us greatly. The bed was very comfortable and there was a tea making facility replenished daily. The beds were made daily too.
There was a good selection at breakfast, they make porridge on request.
