This is a great place to stay. Very homely and the staff can't do enough to make you feel so welcome . Swimming pool facilities are really good as well. A great way to work of that hearty breakfast! Free wifi is a nice touch. Will come back again for sure.

We wanted to visit the Edinburgh tourist attractions but had a car to park. Nearly all the central hotels we looked at had limited or zero parking. This Hotel was Nth' West of the main center but had its own parking and a 44 bus route outside (£1.30 each) approx' 20 min direct to city centre. Worked out very well.
In previous years we had avoided Best Western as mostly, they seemed old and jaded but recently we have used several of them as they seem to have splashed some cash and upgraded them. This one was very clean and smart.
We had also joined the B'Western rewards card earlier and this got us a free upgrade as a Exec' room was available. They allowed us to stay an extra couple of hours on the last morning so as we could utilise the pool and steam rooms before we drove back to Surrey,
It was also a good base for driving the 10 min' to Ocean Terminal where we visited the Royal Yacht Brittania. A must do. Ocean terminal also had plenty of shops, resturants and a Vue cinema which we utilised. (Utilised the hotel computer/printer to find and print some discount vouchers for resturants before we set off to Ocean Term')
We found the weather very wet, windy and cold (October 'up-north'), so take a fleece at least.
This is the first time we have added a review to Trip Advisor so hope it helps.

Room Tip: Join the B'Western rewards card before you book

Thanks for your comments. I am delighted that you enjoyed your short stay with us. Guests can join the Best Western rewards scheme on the Best Western UK web site or on arrival at the hotel. You can gain rewards points on stays at over 270 Best western hotels in the UK and over 3000 worldwide. You may not be aware that Best Western do not own any hotels. All hotels are owned and managed by individual owners and operators The Kings Manor has been owned and run by the same family since 1976. They also own and operate 2 hotels in Fife, both personally managed by family members. To join Best Western a hotel must pass an exacting inspection and each year is re inspected to ensure standards are maintained. It has been Best Westerns policy or ‘raising the bar’ each year on these inspections so that each hotels minimum standard has to improve to stay within the orginisation. Several hotels over the past few years have not managed to keep pace and have left the orginisation. The result to the customer , as you testify, is a much improved quality in each hotel.

Whilst not in the city centre the hotel is about a 10 minute walk from Brunstane Train Station which is a 7 minute train ride from Edinburgh Waverly. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was a good size, clean and comfortable. The hotel is about a 30 minute taxi ride from the Airport (about £30).

Reasonable place. Lovely leisure facilities.

Got a good deal on the room but the price paid did not live up to expectations.

Bonus was free wifi which is a must for me.

Also miffed that the price did not include breakfast.

I am sorry that your stay did not live up to your expectations. We offer Room Only, Bed and Breakfast and Dinner Bed and Breakfast rates so guests can choose a rate that suits their needs. I would urge guests to double check what type of booking that they are making. Breakfast is available at a discounted rate on check in to those who have not booked a B& B rate.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Best Western Kings Manor. The price was unbeatable, the location was great, and the room was fabulous! If you are planning to stay in Edinburgh, I definitely suggest staying in this hotel. Please note that this hotel is not in the city center; however, getting to the city center is very easy.

To get from Edinburgh Waverley Station to the hotel, take the train to Brunstane Station (it runs every day except Sunday). It takes approximately 8 minutes and costs £2.10 each way. The walk from Brunstane Station takes about 5 minutes.

On Sunday there is a bus (#44) that runs from just outside the hotel to Princes Street. It is £1.30 each way and takes approximately 30 minutes. **Go to the hotel's web site for more detailed transportation directions.

All in all, I will most definitely stay at the Best Western Kings Manor again. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and the room was unbeatable.

Thank you for your kind comments I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay. I totally agree that the excellent bus and train service to the city centre is a great asset to us. You can enjoy easy access to the city without the noise, crowding and lack of parking that you would associate with a city centre hotel.

Bought via ebay we wondered if all would be fine but this hotel was practically faultless. We upgraded to a Club Class room for a nominal amount and it was very spacious and pleasant. Reception and Restaurant staff could not do enough for you. Get on ebay and buy a break!

Room Tip: Go Club Class

Decided to visit this spa hotel for our first wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed. Lovely staff, spa facilities were excellent, food was reasonably priced and nice and the rooms were more than adequate and comfortable.
Enjoyed being just outside of the main city and it's hustle and bustle; train journey into Edinburgh was just seven minutes away.
The only downfall was that we were unable to book a massage - however, in hindsight we should have booked prior to arrival.
Thank you Kings Manor for a lovely relaxing break, will hopefully be back!!

Thank you for your kind comments. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry that you could not get a massage. Our balcony health and beauty team are always very busy especially at weekends and extending opening hours on a Sunday has not completely solved the problem. I would certainly urge anyone contemplating having any of our treatments to book a beauty technicians time before arrival. Details of all treatments and costs are on our web site.
