“Good basic hotel for a few nights in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

Good size quiet room, easy bus transport into Edinburgh centre, spacious spa. Self service breakfast was fine. Bar comfortable, didn't try lunch or dinner though.

Only surprise was there was a charge for internet - something I haven't come across for the last couple of years. I found my cellular 3G more than adequate luckily.

Really friendly staff at reception and concierge - possibly the best I have ever encountered in a hotel. Hotel tastefully decorated and fresh. Room was spacious and nice. Bathroom immaculate. My only complaint is its £6 for using the internet for one hour - crazy prices!

Had two nights in the Marriott on a sight seeing trip to Edinburgh. The bus stop outside made access into the city center easy. We had a very nice room with plenty of space, the food in the restaurant was excellent. The staff made the hotel special and everyone we dealt with was helpful and friendly. Customer service was first class and I can not speak highly enough of the staff. Thank you Marriott for an enjoyable stay.

My room was very comfortable, quiet, clean and the food was good. However, i was shocked that the Internet was so expensive. It costs £15 for 24 hours so I opted not to take it. I also didn't find my journey there from the airport very easy because I arrived exhausted at night, in the dark, after 12 hours of travel. I rang the hotel and was told about the No 100 airport bus that stops by the hotel. I opted for a taxi for about £10 because I couldn't face searching for the bus or heaving my cases up and down and walking along to the hotel. The next morning I took the bus and it was easy and quick.

Standard Marriott offering. Large room, comfy bed, clean with efficient staff. Good food in the bar. The room I had this time was starting to look a bit tired though. The temperature thermostat fell off the wall and was left dangling by the wires when I touched it. The wall mounted tissue box in the bathroom did likewise and the tv remote didnt work. Perhaps its time to spend a bit of money to restore the rooms to the usual Marriott standard. Would definitely use again though when next in Edinburgh.

Excellent Staff, good catering, excellent parking facilities, clean rooms but with the external temperature below zero the air con struggled. The wind chill on the building was obviously higher than anticipated. The corridor was like a refrigerator which I am sure affected the room temperature. However the staff very promptly produced a blanket on request. When the wind changed the temps did improve. The room was valeted by the enthusiastic staff during breakfast one morning but Saturday night was not quiet, nor was Sunday breakfast. Breakfasts has a very good selection, particularly continental style. Generally a good standard Marriott.

I stayed here in November on business.

The hotel is lovely, staff pleasant, room nice. But Marriott would seriously need to look at the Internet policy here.

£15 for 24 hours ! Sweet Lord. To add insult to injury I activated it on my iphone and couldn't set my iPad up without having to pay another £15.

I stayed 2 nights. That's £30. That's the price of my Internet for the month where I live. This is clearly a money making venture by the hotel.

In this day and age it's shocking to see a quality hotel charge crazy prices for wifi.

Oh if your staying for a week they have a great deal on Internet connectivity a steal at just £75 !!!!!

That's tipping about €100. To send a few emails.


Time the management here had a chat with themselves.
