We chose this Premier Inn over the city centre ones because it was much cheaper, especially when you factor in that it has ample free parking. It is located right next to the train station which takes you into the city for £3 return for an adult. There is also a bus service from there that also stops at Murrayfield, ideal for rugby fans!
There is a Costa in the hotel and the bar & restaurants are very reasonably priced. A short walk away you will find a Tesco Extra, KFC & a Krispy Creme Doughnut coffe shop amongst other retail outlets. So although it is not city centre there are plenty of facilities nearby.
The hotel is relatively new, consequently is was very tidy & clean. The bathroom had a bath and a shower, which is always a bonus. Very comfortable bed with plenty of pillows and air conditioning meant we could have the temperature exactly as we wanted. There is a hair dryer in the room and plenty of storage for clothing etc. It is not in the most salubrious of surroundings but as a base for exploring Edinburgh it is excellent and I will definitely use it again.More
