“Cheap, Clean and Cheerful”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

We stayed at The Premier Inn for one night while visiting relatives in Edinburgh. It is a short, and easy ride back into the city centre form here.
We had booked a Family Room for 2 adults and 2 children and we were pleasantly surprised to find our room had a queen-size bed and two single beds (rather than the standard two doubles you usually encounter in a family room).
The room had all the things we needed including lots of towels and a TV with plenty of free view channels. You can also get 30 mins of free wifi.
The service at reception was friendly and efficient.

Excellent service and good value for money if you can take advantage of the regular promotions.
The 'Good Night Gurantee' is applied in practice although we had no reason to complain.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the first floor. This avoids noise from floor above. Rooms facing front are away fr...

If you are looking for good value for money accomodation close to Edinburgh, with a nice bar/restaurant attached, then this it it! The Cuddy Brae is the pub attached and it serves a great variety of good quality food. Not your typiecal "pub grub" - it's much better than that!
The only drawback is that there is a railway running at the back of the hotel.

Room Tip: Don't have room that backs on to the railway line!

If you are visiting Edinburgh and are on a budget, this is an excellent option. We stayed five nights. The hotel is like an Econolodge--plain but a good place to stay. It is about a half hour from the center of the city and there is excellent bus and train service adjacent to the hotel. You can get a bus about every 20 minutes throughout the day. There is a restaurant next to the facility that is okay but not special. The hotel does not offer free wi-fi in the rooms but it is available in the restaurant. The service personnel were very helpful to us while we were there. From our experience Premier Inns offer excellent value for the money. We also stayed at a Premier Inn at the Glasgow Airport.

Comfortable, spotlessly clean, family room. Staff happy and helpful - makes such a pleasant change!! Never saw anyone without a smile on their faces!! Great transport links - train and buses - plus next to A1 for ease of getting to and from by car. Will definitely be re-booking for return visit. Xx

Friendly welcome on arrival, clean rooms and excellent location. The hotel is situated across the road from Newcraighall Station from which there are two trains an hour into central Edinburgh (journey time around 10 mins).

We stayed in a room at the back and whilst there is a train line directly behind we only noticed a couple of trains going past and even slept with the window slightly ajar and were in no way distubred.

We didn't have an evening meal in the Cuddy Brae but did go there for breakfast, nice, clean looking pub and again friendly attentive staff.

The staff are friendly and helpful the rooms are well kept and clean. The Cuddy Brae pub next to the hotel has a fabulous menu, the food and service are great and you really get value for money. The hotel is very close to the train station with only 2 stops to the centre of Edinburgh, plenty of parking on site. A thoroughly great weekend, Thank you premier Travel Inn once again.
