Having to travel a lot with work and stay in a variety of hotels both home and abroad, I see a lot of good and bad hotels. Planning a city break with my wife we were surprised to see the premier inn on princes st rated so highly on tripadvisor.
We decided to take the plunge and book 3 nights. The location is great with stunning views of Edinburgh castle, ask for a castle view room in advance. The staff were very welcoming and took a keen interest in the individuals checking in.
Surprisingly good for a budget hotel! Stayed in much worse for double the price, I cannot think of anything negative to say about this hotel other than the cost may be slightly higher than you would normally expect to pay for a premier inn but it was worth every penny!
