“Excellent value and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

Fabulous location and forces you to stroll down south clerk street on way to more popular tourist area. Plenty of good shops and cafes on route and ideal for a walk up Arthur's Seat which gives a wonderful view of the city. We booked the double room which wasn't huge but adequate for us. The breakfast was superb with freshly cooked to order; stornoway black pudding, ayrshire bacon and a variety of other options. I stay in hotels frequently through work and have become used to the hot buffet however the quality of the hot food on offer here qas excellent. The staff were excellent especially the domestic staff and one lady who showed us the guest pantry was especially helpful. I would not hesitate to stay hete again. Opps nearly forgot the free parking which is a premium in edinburgh. Fantastic!!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2011

Hotel is in a good situation, in the university complex. Good bus service into the city. Bedroom was very small but with a good modern bathroom. Two problems, (a jammed plug in the wash basin and a faulty light) were dealt with fast and efficiently. Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order with plenty of fresh fruit, juices, pastries and joghurts. It lacked atmosphere as it was more a series of rooms with en suite bathrooms than a hotel. No reception area (that was in the university building).

The Salisbury Green is clean, very quiet, and all in all a pretty nice place. It is about a 30 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride from the center of Edinburgh. It is on the edge of the area where the residence halls for the University of Edinburgh are, so the whole thing has a college feel about it.
I stayed here because I had a conference on the campus and had no desire to stay in a residence hall. I think, however, if I were visiting Edinburgh as a tourist I might want to stay closer to the center of town. As other reviewers have pointed out, it is right next to a large park, and so there is a feel of being in the country with a pleasant place to walk, jog, or even climb up the crags.

This place looks lovely in the photos on Booking.com but I it was made clear on the web site that this hotel is run by the University of Edinburgh and is located within the Pollock Halls Residence. The building is not in its own grounds as implied by the website text and photographs as you are basically on a campus. Breakfast was good but the dining room is too tiny for the number of guests and we had to wait in the lobby. The reception is in another building on campus. The receptionist was not helpful at all as we had lots of issues getting into the the room. Lucking there is a good pub across the road becuase this place has no atmosphere and while the rooms are well decorated these is still an institutional feel about it. The website says thart there is free parking included but on arrival were told IF we could find a space then we had better not move the car as they were very busy that weekend. We would not recommend this "hotel" nor would we stay there again.

Stayed here for three nights on a visit to the Edinburgh Fringe. For the last seven yearsI have lodged in Chancellor's Court (also part of the Edinburgh Univ Halls) and Salisbury Green proved to be an ideal choice and good value for money (£110 per night on B&B basis)

Positives
Free (and safe) car parking right outside the hotel - collect a permit from reception
Free (and fast) wifi in the room (login details provided on arrival)
Big and comfortable rooms (I had ground floor, room 3) with excellent blackout curtains to help get a good night's sleep
Quiet and secluded - set away from the main Halls which are teeming with thousands of visitors during the Festival month
Excellent breakfast - small dining room, but superb Ayrshire bacon and Scottish sausages + good selection on continental. Free newspapers to browse (from 7.30am)
Bathrooms are fine (large!) and there is guest pantry open 24 hrs a day for supplies of fresh milk and a microwave etc for cooking quick meals on the hoof
Easy access to Edinburgh - 15-20 min walk, and adjacent to Hollyrood Park for superb jogs and walks - a memorable feature of any visit to Edinburgh.

All in all a great choice for me this year and I would happily return.
