“Excellent as Usual”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

I've stayed in this hotel on many occasions for business and it has rarely been short of excellent. It is well placed for Haymarket Station and an easy walk into the restaurants of Lothian Road and just a little further to the heart of the city.
We stayed for leisure a few days ago and again, it was excellent, even if we had paid more than we did. We arrived at 1230 and the ever-friendly staff sorted us out a room right away. We asked for a quiet room (been there before!) and the receptionist couldn't have been more helpful before deciding which room would suit us best. Whilst we are very light sleepers and a bit more sensitive than many, half the rooms overlook the rear car park and are usually nice and quiet.
We had the continental breakfast which at just over £5 each was more than adequate with a big bowl of porridge and plentiful fruit and toast.
I've stayed in several Premier Inns in and around Edinburgh and this one never disappoints. Well done (again) to the staff and management.

Room Tip: If you like a quiet room ask for one overlooking the car park and a little bit away from the lifts.

We stayed at this hotel just before Christmas and just after New Year. Both times we found the hotel staff welcoming, the room comfortable, the breakfast yummy and the location superb. This is an 'upmarket' budget hotel!

What can you expect for £29 !!!!

Well we just had a great nights stay at this property and on arrival were met and greeted by smiling , happy and contented staff especially Amy who checked us in and although the room was not ready we had a room to leave our cases for a short period, unlike Travelodge.

The area has a few restaurants , bars and shops and these fulfilled our needs

Once in the room the Double Bed was comfy as well as warm & cosy plus clean & tidy
was the total overall impression.

If you get a bargain then this is brilliant value dead central for Edinburgh Princes Street

If we are passing through Edinburgh again will definitely stay again no probs.

Stayed here for three nights. Great location, about a ten minute walk from Princes St and with some good pubs and a variety of restaurants on the door step. Room was modern and very clean, with the added bonus of parking within the hotel. The staff were also very friendly. I would stay here again

Stayed for the weekend in January - booked early so got the best rate. Was very pleased with the accomodation - very large, clean and comfortable room. Very much liked the choice of pillows and heated towel rail. Others have complained about the small TV, I thought it was fine (but then I don't have a 40 inch plus tv at home either).

Also found all the staff really friendly and helpful and the location great - only 10 mins walk into the centre with a great pub (Carters) next door and fantastic steak restaurant (McKirdys) a 2 min walk away.
