“loved it”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

This hotel is right on the train route and the station is a few steps away—after haymarket this is the 2nd stop on west bound trains from Waverley—one should check the board to see if the train is calling at this station Edinburgh park as express trains may not stop. We loved the open area where it is located and the convenience of the commute in 10 minutes to Waverley station. At £ 44/night, it was a steal for our stay from May 2-4 and we loved the cleanliness and comfort offered by the Premier chain

Stayed May 2013, travelled with family

Preimer Inn Edinburgh Park is a basic quality chain hotel located right outside Edinburgh Park station. It is perfectly fine for what it aims to achieve, a simple and uncluttered spot to sleep for a night. It is something of a no-frills hotel so pricing should reflect that.

Check-in and out has been partly automated at Premier Inn but there is still one person on a very small desk for those of us who prefer manual. The two versions of that person this reviewer encountered were both friendly and personable. It was welcome to have the person on desk recognise my name as the one with the late arriving luggage the hotel had recently received.

There were no real complications at the hotel, the room space was perfectly fine, the quality of the bed was reasonable, the freesat television worked, the shower was decent. A constant almost inaudible humming sound was a bit annoying as was the 0430 wake-up from the heavy vehicles trundling by and occasionally reversing.

The breakfast was perfectly fine. Nothing special, nothing too bad. Some fellow customers did complain about their sausages and sent them back. Ordering one of the less usual extras was no hassle at all. The member of staff on duty over breakfast was very friendly even when handling complaints.

The location is a mixed blessing. Edinburgh Park is a bit of a wasteland. It is full of massive corporate offices and not a place to enjoy. On the other hand it is only a few minutes into Edinburgh's main station by train so works out well.

For a basic quality accommodation, Edinburgh Park Premier Inn is perfectly fine. It has nothg special about it and the location is a bit odd but if a good deal can be found it seems reasonable.

I book with Premier Inn on a regular basis, and I have to say that this hotel is certainly one of their best. I think this hotel is quite new, and looks and feels it. The rooms are clean and tidy, and the service from the hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Ideally situated right across the road from Edinburgh Park train station. Excellent onsite car parking facilities too. Would definitely recommend.

Situated a few steps from the Edinburgh Park station and 10 minutes by train from the city center. Airport is only 5 minutes away. Nice, clean room, very friendly and helpful staff. Everything was as it was supposed to be. Would reccomend to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

I would most certainly reccomend to anyone looking for value for money in all aspects to book with Premier Inn whether it be for business or pleasure. In relation to the Edinburgh Park Hotel,the train station is ONE MINUTE away and it takes EIGHT Mins to get to central Edinburgh
