“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Have been here on a few occasions when visiting Edinburgh, but was Very surprised as the rooms have been recently refurbished.

Clean, modern facilities.

Staff were friendly and keen to help, as requested more towels.

Good value for money, although you do get woken up early with the train running along the back. Ok, if you are a deep sleeper.

My family had 6 rooms in total on Friday night; some had finished refurbished rooms and others were in older rooms but the general consensus was a great place to stay, friendly staff and a lovely breakfast. They had been warned about the lifts so no issues at all.I get married next year and they agree that this is where they want to stay.
It is on a great bus link to centre of Edinburgh so would highly recommend to tourists who are looking for clean and affordable accommodation.

Booked this Premier Inn at the last minute for a trip to Edinburgh to visit family. I've stayed at Premier Inn before, and generally you know what to expect as far as rooms and restaurant/breakfast is concerned. What pleased me about this particular one, which is one of the smaller Prem. Inns was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, particularly on reception. I would strongly recommend this particular Premier Inn

This is one of the best Premier Inns I have stayed at. It is on a par with many larger hotels I have used. Spotlessly clean with friendly efficient staff. The rooms are of a good size with comfortable beds. The adjoining Beefeater is of a very high quality. The staff in both the Inn and restaurant went out of their way to ensure our visit was enjoyable.

I've stayed for two nights this is your standard premier in nuts also being refurbished with lifts just being added so if your not the fittest you should ask for a lower floor as their is a few stairs but apart from that it's very good with really helpful staff and great food x

Dear Xcgt,

Thanks for your review!

We are indeed having a lift fitted just now. In fact, it will be complete by the end of this week. Next time you stay, you won't need to take the stairs... Unless you like the exercise!
I'm glad you liked our team and thank you for saying so. We really appreciate it.

Hope to welcome you back soon.

Our daughter was dancing at Meadowbank stadium early on a Sunday morning and as we're from the North of Scotland we chose to stay overnight, we chose this hotel as it was close by.
We'd recommend this hotel to anyone, the hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is on Willowbrae road which has several buses running past the door into the city centre so after we booked in we abandoned the car and hit the town.
Breakfast was available from 7am at the attached Beefeater so we were able to have a decent breakfast before we had to head to Meadowbank for the competition which started at 8am.
This location is perfect if you're here for sport Meadowbank and Easter road nearby or shopping The city centre is a 10 min bus ride away or the theatre which also a short bus ride away.

Dear Martyn B,

Thanks for giving us your thoughts on your stay.

I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed it, and that it was convenient for you and your family, especially with a dancing competition to plan for. Hope your daughter did well!

We do have a lot of families who choose our hotel for dancing/gymnastics in the area, and many will come back year after year - I hope to see you and your family again at the next competition!
