Leonardo Royal Hotel Edinburgh

Reviewed 20 November 2013

We took advantage of a great deal and stayed for three nights at £29 per night, which is brilliant.
From entering the front door we were greeted by very pleasant young staff who had obviously been well trained. They didn't give just a 'list' of things to say to customers but seemed natural and interested. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet, which is what we have come to expect from Premier Inn. It was great to find that we could leave our car at the back of the hotel for £8 a day and walk. To try and drive anywhere in Edinburgh now is just daft.
The restaurant meal in the evening was ok, but I would suggest that there are plenty of places to eat within a 15 minutes walk.
On the down side, the lifts were unpredictable - felt a bit concerned about getting stuck! Also for the 3 nights we were there, the car parking ticket machine, the drinks machine and the ice cream machine were all out of use. However, we didn't want to use any of them so we were fine.
I would definitely come here again. There are so many places at this end of the city to get to know e.g. The Scottish Galleries of Modern Art and Dean Village. Fabulous!

Spent three nights in this hotel last week. staff were courteous and helpful. food was good but not spectacular; hotel and room were both clean though it was hard to get the room temperature to regulate. hotel is convenient for everything that we wanted to do and we would stay here again without question.

My wife and I stayed on the recommendation of a friend. We were only there one night to have dinner with some friends. Location is great for the city centre and just a short walk from Haymarket station.
The staff were excellent, much better than a lot of more expensive hotels. They could not do enough for you and recommended a great pub before we had our meal.
Rooms are large and very clean. Bar was good enough for a final night cap.
Breakfast was very good and again great service.
This hotel is excellent value but more so for a city centre.
The manager should be very proud of his staff.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back away from the main road. It is a late night city.

Second time I have stayed at this hotel. It is easy to find if you use the Airport link bus and get off at the haymarket station. The room was quiet, comfortable and well equipped as you come to expect at Premier Inns but the outstanding thing at this one was the genuinely helpful and friendly staff. They must see thousands of guests but treat everyone as an individual and even better they were all local people with plenty of local knowledge. They helped us to use the local buses and helped with printing our flight boarding passes, all with a smile! Very refreshing.

Room Tip: Higher rooms at the front have great views.

From the minute we entered to the time we left everything was excellent! the staff were excellent from requests for more pillows, to where to catch buses from, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice as much as u wanted and extended times ( up til 10-30am!!) the bed was extremely comfortable and lovely pillows( the best ever in a hotel) and lovely crisp bed linen!
Although this hotel is big and in a busy area the lack of noise was amazing.
The room was big and even had a sofa , the bathroom was a decent size, and the shower was second to none, the only downer and this is not a complaint , the fan in the bathroom was a trifle noisy.
Location was superb, 10-15 mins walk from Princes street and all the buses!
All in all a most pleasing and pleasant stay and wont hesitate to use a premier Inn again.

I booked the Premier Inn, Haymarket because it was one of the hotels available on their £29 a night room promotion. We stayed four nights - one night at the £29 rate and three at £35 per night.
I have to say that at that price, my expectations were not high.
How wrong I was. From the moment we arrived the reception staff were friendly, courteous, helpful and efficient.
Our room (305) on the third floor was spacious, comfortable and clean. I couldn't believe how little we had paid for such quality. The view was over a car park but it was quiet. The bed and bed linen were absolutely top notch. Tea and coffee making facilities were very welcome. If you needed an iron and ironing board there was a communal one available on each floor in a cupboard by the lifts.
The en-suite was a good size and also clean. The shower pressure wasn't the best but it was perfectly acceptable. The toilet was sometimes difficult to flush - on occasions requiring two or three flushes to clear it.
Two very minor issues were reported to reception - light bulb failed in en-suite and room not serviced when we returned to it at 3.30pm on our last day.
These issues were dealt with promptly, efficiently and courteously on both occasions. I have stayed in Hotels of all grades and the staff at this Premier Inn are up there with the best of them.
We first arrived at the hotel at about 6.30pm after a total of about 6 hours on a train. We were very tired and so we decided to eat at the Premier Inn restaurant.
The food and service was really good. We had the Chicken Makhani curry and a New Yorker Pizza. The food and wine was very reasonably priced.
The location of the hotel was very good. Although not right in the City centre, you could walk to the main shopping area of Princes Street within a 10 minute stroll. The Castle and Royal Mile were about a 20-25 minute walk. There are lots of restaurants within a 1- 5 minute walk of the hotel.
The all you can eat cooked buffet breakfast was good value at £8.25 each. Unlimited tea and coffee of a good quality from a Costa freshly ground coffee machine. Unlimited fresh fruit juice was also good quality. The back bacon and sausages were good and there were mushrooms beans, tinned and fresh fried tomatoes and hash browns. The fried eggs suffered by not being freshly cooked - they are never at their best from a buffet. However, if you wished, when you were being seated, you were given the option to have freshly poached or boiled eggs. Freshly made porridge was also offered.
Having read previous reviews about queues for the breakfast - I was pleased to see that in the lift there was a colour coded time chart to indicate which were the busiest times - what a good idea. We utilised that information and went for breakfast at 9.30am each day and never had to queue or wait for a table.
My only criticism of the breakfast is that the hot food items were just lukewarm, but I know it's difficult to keep food hot on a buffet without spoiling it.
That said, we enjoyed our breakfast experience - by the time we had had 2-3 mugs of coffee each and a couple of juices - we wouldn't be far off the £8.25 price at nearby cafe's. When you add on a full cooked breakfast price with toast on top of that you realise just what good value the Premier breakfast is. A cheaper Premier continental breakfast option was also available.

Well done Premier Inn Haymarket - you have won-over two customers who would heartily recommend you to others. If these standards are typical of Premier Inn nationally - I shall certainly look to book with them in future.
