Travelled by train from London for a family long weekend stay. Hotel, rooms, staff and food were all excellent. Restaurant service was a little slow but nothing to be concerned about.
I chose the Premier Inn at The Gyle because I could not find a reasonably priced family hotel in central Edinburgh. The only downside is that the otherwise frequent train service from Edinburgh Park station (directly next door to the hotel) into central Edinburgh had some 40 - 45 minute gaps on a Sunday morning between 0800 - 1100. Otherwise services were frequent and quick into central Edinburgh via Haymarket (5 minutes) and Waverley (7 minutes). A family day return ticket into central Edinburgh for 2 adults and up to 4 children was a very reasonable £5.80.
Also, a tram stop going one way to Edinburgh airport and the other to central Edinburgh and onto Leith is being constructed next to Edinburgh Park rail station. This will make the location even better and travel worries lessen when it is completed in mid 2014.
A great choice if you have young children and are not too worried about venturing out late in Edinburgh after a days sightseeing. We will be returning!
