The good: Stayed 3 nights. Excellent location as there are very frequent buses which take 5/10 mins to get into the city centre . The bedroom was clean on the face of it but I didn't want to look too closely! Staff pleasant enough. Didn't have breakfast (preferred to go into the city for it) so can't comment.

The bad: Bathroom! En-suite shower enclosure wasn't nice at all, needed regrouting or replacing. Toilet wasn't securely attached so wobbled every time you sat down. Big gap around the basin housing unit. Hall carpets were badly stained on every floor. Paid for internet access in the room but couldn't connect for more than around 20 seconds at a time. Hairdryer was missing.

do not, under ANY circumstance use this hotel. The pictures we viewed were nothing like the property. You have to pay these people in CASH when you arrive or be charged 5% if you use credit. There were 4 of us. The room was suppose to be a family type suite. This room was to be able to accommodate 4 people. NOT SO! This room was so narrow you could not fit your luggage and yourself in the space let alone 4 people. The beds were next to each other with barely enough room to navigate. Our "room" was on the second level. You come into the hotel on the ground floor. NO ELEVATORS. You literally drag your suitcases up the stairs and around corners to get to the room. By the way, we were there for 2 horrid nights.....the room was not cleaned. Bathroom not wiped up, beds not made and trash not removed. I would hate to see this place if the people in it were slobs.

Room Tip: LOOK before you accept anything!

This hotel we booked just for 1 night (happy for this) and was disappointed to find the hotel very far from city centre, not at all up to Hotel standard (bathroom crammed and looked very dated). Good news is that staff was friendly- but honestly there are better hotels near the city centre for the same money (90 pounds) so spend your money elsewhere.

At last a clean fresh room in a reasonably priced hotel in Edinburgh!!As my son is at university there I have made a few trips to see him and have struggled to find reasonable cheap accommodation, but I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Lovely warm welcome, clean contemporary bedroom(no chintz!!) and handy for visiting my son and the city centre (loads of buses straight outside).Breakfast was only average - but,hey nothing's perfect! I'll definitely aim to go back.

Room Tip: Most even numbered rooms on the first floor appear to have access to a shared veranda - mine did.

After reading some reviews on here i was a bit apprehensive. We stayed at The Northumberland hotel for 1 night to go see the Edinburgh Tattoo. We found the room clean, the beds comfortable and the bathroom spotless. In fact we couldn't of asked for better. The gentleman on the desk when we arrived was very helpful pointing out key places to visit in Edinburgh and marking out on a map where they were and telling you how to get there. We were given a note with all the bus numbers on and told where to get on and off the bus. We didn't stay for breakfast and opted for a bit of a lie in instead but the breakfast room looked really nice and again very clean. We would definitely stay here again.
