Booked this hotel after reading the many positive reviews and we were not disappointed. So much better to stay here and travel into the city centre by train. The station being located right next to hotel although we couldn't hear any train noise. For 7 of us it cost £11.20 return (4 adults, 3 children). You can keep the tickets and use for children to get free entrance into the zoo and dungeons. The journey into Edinburgh took 9 minutes. This was less hassle than driving around a busy city centre, trying to find parking and having to pay expensive parking fees.
We arrived almost an hour early but were able to check in as our room was ready, our friends room wasn't, but they allocated them a new room to save them waiting about.
The rooms were spotless, we had a family room which had 2 single beds and one king size. There was still plenty of room to walk about. The all you can eat breakfast was great value for money. Fresh, tasty and plentiful! The staff were so friendly and helpful. All in all a great first experience of Edinburgh and one I wish to repeat soon. We all agreed it was the perfect choice and will definitely stay here again. We bought the 2 day Royal Edinburgh ticket which got us into the castle, Palace of Holyrood house and aboard the Royal yacht Britannia aswell as giving us 2 days unlimited travel on 5 different tour buses- and no queuing...fast tracked straight in!!
