“Five star quality at Three star price!!”
Reviewed 24 December 2011

We recently travelled to Edinburgh for our first visit choosing this time to experience the Christmas fair and markets. We selected the Newcraighall hotel for its proximity to the train station which enabled travel into the city without taking the car, trains every 30 mins during the day (none on Sunday but buses stop outside) and a journey time of 8 minutes.
On arrival at the Premier Inn we were given a warm friendly welcome and check in was fast and efficient, we were allocated a room on the first floor at the back of the hotel, the room was bigger than we expected and furnished to a very high standard with king size bed, it was immaculately clean and the pillows for the bed were nice and soft, extra pillows already in the room.
On our first night as we had arrived late in the afternoon we had dinner in the hotel restaurant, the menu had a good selection and the food was OK, my partner selected a pasta dish and this was not very warm and had to be sent back but it served the purpose and meant we did not have to venture out after our journey.
The following day was spent in the city and after returning to the hotel to shower and change we returned and chose an Italian restaurant for dinner which was excellent, be aware that the trains go to hourly service in the evening the last one departing at 2315.
Next day we had a trip out in the car - first stop to find our eating venue for the evening - an Indian restaurant recommended to us by one of the reception staff who told us he was a frequent customer - Bonoful Restaurant in Portobello a little town less than 3 miles from the hotel, having identified the location we drove a little way and found that the town has a lovely seashore, quite deserted due to the season but apparently very busy in season according to a local resident, also excellent views across the Firth of Forth and Berwick. We then drove on to Leith and saw the Royal Yacht Britannia (from Debenhams restaurant windows!) and other interesting vessels in the harbour, from there we went to South Queensferry to see the road and rail bridges across the Forth, the rail bridge is a spectacular engineering feat. We returned to the hotel and in the evening drove to the Indian restaurant, we were not disappointed the food was excellent and at a reasonable price with meals on the menu which we have not seen elsewhere, the staff were attentive without being intrusive there were only ourselves and six other diners but the weather was atrocious, but we did not regret turning out and will return on our next visit to Edinburgh.
The following morning we checked out leaving the car at the hotel and having a last trip into the city to purchase some of the wonderful food at Crombies Butchers, we cannot resist quality sausages from traditional butchers together with some Scotch pies and a home made Steak pie for tea when we got home!
All the staff at the hotel were friendly and polite a credit to their employers they are knowledgeable about the area and nothing too much trouble, special thanks to Claire who helped with several enquiries, we have stayed at another budget hotel several times before but now will always use Premier Inn as there is no comparison.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back with the train line behind we were not unduly disturbed despite sleeping w...

Stayed for 3 nights with my husband and 2 year old. Although it is out of the city centre, this was not a problem at all. The train station opposite the hotel was absolutely brilliant with trains running every half hour into the city. The breakfasts were lovely including the real scottish porridge. We were on the back of the hotel with the rail line directly under our window, but it was not noisy at all. Would definitely stay again.

This is the second time we have stayed here, good clean rooms, good value and great location, straight off the A1 and convenient for the train into Edinburgh.
Went to Edinburgh for the Christmas market etc but too busy, could not even get to the market stalls because of the number of people, it was also very difficult to find a restaurant that was not full so we decided to eat back at the hotel, very good evening meal and breakfast, staff very polite and friendly. Will stay again.

This was just (ment to be) a stop over on returning form hoilday.

We where welcomed by a lovly scottish smile and a warm reception. Check in was smooth, told about all the local transport options and near by eataries ect. Was given a ground floor room on request and the staff even went along to turn the heating on whist we got our bags out the car! - lovley touch! The room was very nice, LARGE bed with flat screan TV, bath & shower! pluss tea & coffee to hand aswell.

The morning we where due to check out we decided to go for a bit of shopping, we were pointed in the direction of the FORT retail park, just minites away form the hotel, this park is HUGE.

We came back to the hotel for check out at 12 and again greeted with a warm smile and questions on our day, we had planned to getting the train home but decided to stay another night wich the gentelman was more than helpfull moving things about so we could keep the same room.

This time we ate in the restaurant wich was OK, nice food, warm atmisphpser but very overpriced. Breakfast was standered Premier Inn with all the trimmings.

Overall fantastic welcome to scotland and great hotel with well trained staff!

Room Tip: Was told there was a railway line on check in, so if this bothers you, stay on the car park end.

On arrival at we found the reception staff very friendly and helpful . Our room was on the first floor facing over the car park ,we had our window open as it was hot in the room .With the window open you do get traffic noise ,this didnt bother us ,but if it is likely to bother you ask for a room that doesn't face onto the road .
Our room was spacious and clean . The room has tea and coffee making facilities, a hair dryer .Wi-fi is available at a cost in your room ,but free in the restaurant ,you can get an iron and ironing board at the reception .
We booked breakfast at time of booking our room,breakfast was excellent and the staff were fast ,freindly and efficient .
Reception staff also helped us with directions ,giving us a AA print out which was a great help .
Should you wish to have your hair done for a special occasion when you are at the hotel then there is a fitness club next the inn which has a hairdressersin it .
There are supermarkets etc within walking distance of the inn .

i stayed here for two nights with my husband and 10 year old daughter in October 2011. The room was clean and spacious with plenty hot water and the hotel is in a quite location. The breakfast was excellent value for money and our daughter ate free. There was ample free parking at the hotel and the train station was only 5 mins walking distance from the hotel so we travelled into Edinburgh on the train for £7.50 return for the three of us and the trains ran every 30 mins. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful and i wouldn't hesitate to stay here again
