“Very mixed feelings about this hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2009

I stayed in this hotel for about 6 weeks as I was working nearby and I have very mixed feelings about what to put in the review.
Pros -
good staff, friendly and professional. always helpful.
the restaurant food is really good. We went through the whole menu probably and didn't get a bad meal.
We also used the bar/cafe quite a lot for lunch and this was always good as well.
free wifi throughout the hotel
Cons -
the rooms. There is one section that has been upgrade and these are adequate but some of the other rooms are in need of a big overhaul. Its a big of an odd layout finding some as they have been added on at different times.

If I had been paying for it myself I think the standard of some of the rooms would have upset me and overridden the positives but as work was covering it I tried not to think about them too much.

I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel near Edinburgh. I have stayed in many hotels in the city but this has got to be the best. The rooms,the food. the leisure club absolutely wonderful and nothing is too much bother for the staff. The lovely breakfast really sets you up for the day and with the bus stop almost outside you are in the city in a very short time. The bus also goes past the Playhouse Theatre so it is very convenient all round. This is a privately owned family run hotel and the owners always appear to be on hand. So an excellent hotel indeed especially for a city break. 1st. class.

I stayed here the first three nights of my trip to the UK. Free parking was great, was greeted warmly at reception, even given a coupon for a free drink. Room was quite small but I expected that, but had a flat-screen TV with lots of channels. Bathroom was very clean. Room had a large closet. Only problem I had with the room was a very squeaky board on the floor near the bathroom entrance that got pretty annoying after awhile as it physically stuck up from the floor. Free breakfast with the room was very good, though one of the three mornings, the waitress who seated me didn't seem interested in me and I didn't see her after she sat me down. But it's a small complaint and I would stay here again.

My mother stays in this hotel when she is in Edinburgh on business and she booked us in for a weekend break and we really enjoyed it. We found our way to the hotel very easily and the big carpark meant no trouble parking. We had forgotten our booking details but it didn’t seem to bother the receptionist who gave us a nice welcome.
Our room was quite big and had a new looking bathroom with a really good shower. Nice toiletries were provided as well as hairdryer a coffee tray and a brand new TV.
Everything in the bedroom and bathroom was very clean, and everywhere we saw looked the same.
Breakfast from the buffet were excellent each morning. We had dinner in the bistro on the Sunday night and it was really good. Not too flash or pricey, but a really good selection. We did not have other meals in the hotel because we were partying in town, but the restaurant dinner menu looked fine. As others have said there are plenty buses from outside the hotel which we used to go up town and it only took 20 minutes. There are night buses as well which was good for us getting back.
On the Sunday after breakfast we went to the spa which was great. Theres a big pool and a jackuzzi which helped our hangover! There is a garden behind the hotel, but it was too cold to sit out.
The hotel seemed busy but it was quiet in the bedroom area. All in all we enjoyed our stay and have booked to stay again when we’re in Edinburgh for a wedding in October.

my husband and i stayed here for 5 nights.We honestly couldn't fault this hotel, even though it is a bit out of town the bus stop is right outside the hotel and brings you right into the city centre for £3 all day travel.The staff were very friendly and helpful, our room was spotless and serviced every day.great value with gta hotels. We would highly reccommend this hotel.

This hotel was a good find. We stayed for three nights in February. We payed £78 a night for the room and thought it was good value. The rooms were comfortable and the whole place seemed clean. Our friends payed extra for a new club room which was bigger than ours. Breakfast was OK. Staff were friendly and really helpful when we asked advice about a kilt shop. The hotel is not in the city center but we never moved the car from when we arrived until when we left because plenty buses run from outside the hotel into the city which took less than half an hour. It only cost £3.00 for a ticket for the whole day. We didn’t use the hotel fitness club, but it looked good. Big pool and lots of gym machines. We had a snack in the bistro which was good and not expensive. We will definately pick this hotel again for our next time in Edinburgh.

Two night Ebay buy, everything there on arrival, choccies n flowers in room. Room was very quiet,clean, but a little dated, particularly the bathroom, also first time sleep in a stowaway bed!
Best to avoid the restaraunt, service very iffy, far better in ajoining bistro. Food very good and keenly priced. Excellent spa facilities. Reception greeting a bit iffy, in particular from the disinterested girl with the multicoloured hair, the vaunted staff training has kinda missed her methinks...... Overall a nice stay at a bargain price.
