“An enjoyable experience”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

We stayed at the Newcraighall Premier Inn as it was chosen by someone else. However our experience was a very good one. The room was immaculate and kept that way, the meals were generous and enjoyable with a good choice and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Inspite of its location next to a railway station there was little if any noise in fact as we were not driving it was ideal for us location wise, within a very short train trip to the centre of Edinburgh.

this was your standard Premier Inn.
"everything's premier but the price" doesn't really ring true. there wasn't really anything premier about it. the interiors were all a tad shabby and rundown. things needed a lick of paint and a freshen, but nothing to complain about - all in ok nick, just not "premier".
the guy on reception was absolutely superb. really fun and engaging as soon as you walk in the door. a real star and a nice guy.
the bed was huge and dead comfy.
had basically freeview tv.
not very good lighting and mirror arrangement for ladies doing their hair and make-up.
the pub next door is good. people seem to come from all around to eat there. solid fayre at good prices. good pub grub. generally speedy service, though they messed up our order- but gave us free drinks to compensate. breakfast on a sunday is only til 10am though!
the hotel is right next to newcraighall station and fort kinnaird shopping centre.
did its job to a good standard, and the reception dude was superb.

situated two train stops outside Edinburgh (train station opposite hotel) and next to a Bannatynes health club (ideal for a swim or morning sauna) this hotel is perfect for visiting this exciting city. Train cost is £7.40 return for a couple of people to travel into the city, which is a lot cheaper than paying for parking in Edinburgh !. Hotel as you would expect of a Premier Inn. Also a few minutes walk from Fort Kinnard shopping centre.

Ideal for visiting Edinburgh though be aware that Newcraighall station doesn't have a booking office!

Room Tip: Be aware that there is a freight railway line at the back of the hotel along which run early morning...

We stayed here for 3 nights recently, we were visiting family in Edinburgh and awaiting our first grandchild. Staff at the Premier Inn were lovely, really friendly and helpful. We ate 3 nights in the Cuddie Brae and the meals were lovely and good value We were allocated a disabled room at the front of the hotel and it was very quiet.. On the day we were leaving we were told we could stay in the room till 2 o'clock as my daughter in law was in labour which was very helpful of them. We now have a lovely grandaughter and will be back at the premier inn in the near future.

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...
