The location is great but the staff are absolutely shocking. No one ever mans the reception desk and there are no phones in the room so locating help when you need it is almost impossible.

During our stay our room was not serviced so we had to travel down to reception to get fresh towels and ask for the room to be serviced (which it ultimately was not). The breakfast best before date is 3 months in advance and looks like something you'd get at the start of a nuclear winter.

The lift wasn't working while we stayed either. The ultimate nail in the coffin was when they refused to hold onto our bags for a couple of hours until our flight was taking off. There was clearly space behind reception and I could see other bags there but the receptionist flat out refused.

All in all a very unpleasant stay. The only good thing about this place is the location.

We had a little trouble spotting the Travelodge initially due to the flag outside being all tangled up and due to heavy traffic and concerntrating on where I was driving missed seeing the sign on the pavement the first time round. Handy that you can park outside to unload cases to save having to trundle them from the car park which is a short 5 min walk away (We used the 24 hour John Lewis car park) We found the hotel to be in a really good spot to access all the things we went for which was mainly the castle and the shops. Plenty of places to eat a stones throw away. I would use this Travelodge again if/when visiting Edinburgh again.

We had a nice clean family room, the location in the New Town was great for all Edinburgh's attractions and shops. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we will definitely be staying again. We didn't try the breakfast boxes as their is a Whetherspoons just around the corner on George Street serving a good breakfast from 8am onwards

Excellent location for all the major attractions in Edinburgh just a short walk to Princes St and a little further for the Castle, Royal Mile etc. Hotel was clean, comfortable and quiet, staff were pleasant and the whole stay was excellent value for money. Would definitely return.

Convenient location for exploring Edinburgh Town Centre, Away from the potential noise of Princes Street. Stayed on a Wednesday night and plenty of eating places nearby. Hotel clean and stay hassle-free.

Not what expected. We booked a family room with continental breakfast for 4 nights and we were given a room with just a queen bed. The breakfast is definitly not continental, just a nox with orange juice and a muffin. The receptionist told us unfortunately there were no place no change room. The same happened a three boys that were at the hotel.

Thank Lorelev
