The following refers to the Motel One on the castle side of the train station , not the one on Princes Street. Booked this hotel in Dec 13 but was vey expensive due to the Fringe festival taking place and the Tattoo which we were going to see. Market forces I'm afraid! So steer clear of August unless you want to pay top prices!
This hotel is fantastically situated. Literally a few minutes walk from Waverley train station, and from the Royal Mile and Princes street, so top marks there. Check in was simple and the hotel was busy but clean and tidy. The room was pleasantly spacious, well fitted and most importantly, clean. We did not ask for a view and did not get one unfortunately. So food for thought there as there will be some great views on the Princes street facing side. Talking of food, breakfast is extra and consisted of cold meats, cereals, toast, coffee and juices. It was more than adequate if you don't need to start your day with a fry up! The room tv worked a treat as well. Good picture and lots of channels. All in all a first rate place to stay but pricey in August. But that's when all the great shows etc are on. Start saving!
