“Deserves it's high place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

I was surprised to find a Premier Inn so highly rated out of all the hotels in Edinburgh, however after staying there I can see why! As a hotel the rooms are simple but very clean. I suspect the reason this hotel is rated so highly is due to the staff. They cannot do enough for you and always have a smile to greet you, unlike the staff at many other chain hotels I could mention. Please do the right thing and stay at this excellently located hotel!

Stayed at numerous Premier Inns and this one was probably the best. Good clean rooms with lovely linen and a large bed and lots of pillows!!! We had a partial Castle view which was an added bonus and the air conditioning was great as it was a very hot day. Breakfast was lovely and the staff where very attentive. Overall a great stay and we would definitely go back NB Carpark was a bit of a walk away and uphill - Princes street is car free but hotel does validate your ticket for a large discount

The hotel was very clean and felt safe and cosy. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful, too!

The location is great and there were coffee shops such as Costa and Starbucks nearby which were good for breakfast in the morning! You can also see the castle from the upper floors, which really makes you feel close to all the city has to offer!

The room was very clean and had all the facilities you would expect from a hotel of this price.

We have been staying at Premier inn as we travel around the United kingdom and we have been very pleased with the accommodations. Clean, reasonably priced for the ideal location. 15 minute walk to castle, 10 minute walk to Carlton Hill, and plenty of restaurants right around the corner. You are able to pick up the tour buses 5 minutes way and there is a beautiful park right across the street. Yes you have to pay for wifi but really you should be out exploring instead of sitting in your room on the Internet.

This hotel has the lot.
Great location, phenominally friendly and helpful staff of the highest order. Spotlessly clean and comfortable.
Amazing breakfast, great little restaurant and bar serving good but inexpensive food and drink.
Far better than most major hotels and certainly worthy of a couple of more stars.
We will definitely return and I strongly recommend you try it because you will not be disappointed.
The standard of the staff are the best I have ever experienced and a true credit to the Premier Inn group...Exceptional

Wonderful hotel in great location. We had a large clean room with the most amazing view of the castle. The room was big enough for the four of us (2 adults and 2 children aged 11 and 13) without feeling too cramped. Nice and helpful staff and a good breakfast. Very good value for money. We will definately be back.
