“Spacious room, very good experience”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

The room was spacious, beds were comfy, room was clean and the wi-fi was fairly fast. For the price we paid you couldn't ask for much more. Easily one of the better Novotels we have stayed at. The lady at reception when we checked in was extremely helpful in providing us with some maps and showing us what sights were in the hotels vicinity.

We stayed here for a weekend in January.

The hotel was easy to find in a central location from which it was easy to access all atttractions in the city particularly the grassmarket with plenty of bars and restaurants and with views from our room of the castle, a 5 minute walk away

The hotel was welcoming and clean and our room was a good size and well appointed. The hotel charged extra for breakfast but this was well worth the money and delicius. The hotel had a small but well appointed gym and a small but again very plesent pool and spa area. The only comment here is that the changing rooms were tiny and incredibley hot so not very plesent to be in but that is only a small issue.

Overall I deifnately plan to stay in this hotel again when in Edinburgh due to its great location and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Some rooms have castle views which were nice

The best thing about this hotel is its location within walking distance to the city. Everything is on your doorstep - 5 mins from Grassmarket in the old town. There are loads of restaurants nearby. The hotel has an indoor swimming pool which was fab for the kids. The restaurant offers a fully cooked buffet breakfast. The rooms were cosy, as we had a sofa bed for the kids, but there is so much to see in Edinburgh, we were hardly in our rooms. Great value for money for families.

I stay in novotel because of their cleanliness - dog friendly? Looks like they let the dogs crap and pee on the carpet - do not stay here. Save your money. On site parking? 10 spaces and people take up 2 with their cars. Yes close to everything but this place is disgusting.

Dear Stacey H ,
I appreciate you taking the time to complete a review after your stay at our hotel.
I was very disappointed to read about the carpet in your room. This is not the standard we set and if there are to be any accidents in our rooms, the carpets are washed and kept out of service for as long as possible to refresh the room for the next guest.
If you do find any issues with your room, our staff are always here to assist and we can arrange a room move to different room.
We have also started to replace the carpet in our bedrooms since your stay with us.
If you wish to discuss this further, please feel free to contact the hotel at h3271@accor.com
Kind regards
Craig Munro
General Manager
