Best Western Kings Manor Hotel

Reviewed 27 August 2014

Just come back from Edinburgh and two nights at the Kings Manor. If you have children this is the place to be. The pool and spa are excellent, the rooms are large, spotless and well equipped, the food is great and the staff are helpful and very friendly. The kids loved it and want to go back a.s.a.p. It's just a short bus/ train ride into the City but is far enough away for those wanting a bit more tranquility. It's a short walk to the beach at Portabello and is also within easy reach of shops, banks, eateries, etc. at Portabello High St. The price was similar to other hotels I looked at but the pool was the deal maker for us. It's no deeper than 1.2m so there was no deep end to worry about with the kids, (although they must be supervised by an adult). We can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor facing the tennis court and there was no noise at all.

spent a couple of nights there to watch the tattoo. lovely, clean, friendly staff, large comfortable rooms and big beds. was a bit hectic getting in to the city due to the finge being on at the same time as the tattoo. on any normal stay i should imagine it was worth the short journey into the city.

Room Tip: not sure but a bit of a maze inside the hotel. but once you got use to it, it was ok.

Wonderful room. Firm beds. Clean and large by European standards. Modern decor, updated. Friendly staff who can't help enough. Business ctr (at check-in desk) Only thing a bit far from city center and airport. Good find during festival time though.

At first the Kings Manor seems to be a ramshackle array of units built on to the original building with no real plan or reason. Well that is what it is! That is the charm of this place. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. Showers are quick and hot and water plentiful. The staff are very helpful and cheerful. The hotel has a bistro and bar set up down one side and a more formal dining room where breakfast can be had each morning. All of which is excellent. The Kings Manor may be just out of town but what it lacks in proximity it more than makes up for in price and functionality. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all the weary travelers out there. By the way the number 44 bus takes you straight into town for 1 Pound fifty pence. All of 8 minutes!!

Much improved hotel, this is a family run hotel, on the outskirts of Edinburgh. The choice and quality of the food is very much improved. Staff are very good, very friendly and extremely professional. On the downside a lot of coach tours use this hotel, but are well managed, there for no queuing at meal times. Rooms are spotless and well maintained. Again this hotel exceeded my expectationsI would recommend this hotel. 9/10 to the management well done

Room Tip: Club room at the back

I stayed for one night while working in Edinburgh. The hotel was easy to find from the south bypass. Check in went fine and I went to my room. It was a small single room but had everything I needed - other than electric sockets near the bed.
The room and bathroom were clean, well decorated and pleasant.
There was a wardrobe, desk, chair and tea/coffee tray. Not sure why it took me a couple of minutes to get the television to work properly, but once I did it was fine.
Plenty of free parking and easy access to the city centre.
All together a pleasant stay.
