“Hidden GEM!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

In Edinburgh, but when your on site, there is nothing city about it. close to all amenities and the shop is not fantastic but has all the essentials. The Stedding Bar is moments walk, and the number of showers and toilets means no waiting. Play park is fantastic and clean. I cant say enough about how great a holiday it was made by our first camping trip with the kids without worries about shower blocks and the like. very close at hand no matter where you are. Lovely, well kept site. Toilets cleaned regularly. if you sit long enough you will see the staff doing the rounds of bins, toilets and grass care. we where there for 4 nights after extending due to great weather.
Everything is clean and tidy.

Thanks to staff and owners for a great site! WE WILL BE BACK!!!!!

Chose Mortonhall for its location and quality and was not disappointed. Good size touring pitch. The pitch was difficult to find and being on a slight slope positioning and levelling was difficult on my own. However, once set up the stay was perfect. Good clean wash blocks that were perfect for the little ones as one of the blocks had toilet and showers in the same spacious cubicles. Definitely will use Mortonhall again.

Stayed 4 nights in our van. Showers were good, though small. TV room good. Lots of well kept grass. Bus stop right outside the driveway, very convenient.
Campsite very crowded on weekend. Wifi was absolute rubbish, paid £25 for two weekly vouchers and it hardly worked. Wouldn't connect, then disconnected at will. Wouldn't work in TV room, or bathrooms, or in our van.
The staff were very friendly except for the lady I mentioned our wifi problems to - who was completely uninterested. Wouldn't be that keen to stay again- would try my chances elsewhere.

Mortonhall Caravan and Camping Park is the perfect base from which to explore all that the city of Edinburgh and its surrounding countryside has to offer. Set within a 200 acre country estate it offers the ideal holiday contrast of country living and city entertainment.
The park is accessed easily from the city bypass and situated conveniently on a main bus route with a regular bus link to the city, With so much to see and do in and around the Capital, you'll be spoilt for choice.
Wigwams were situated next to the newly refurbished toilet blocks which was great not far to go. There was also a bar/restaurant on site which served lovely meals.
Also for children there was a small playpark.

Wigwam had a microwave, fridge, kettle and TV, outside you had a picnic table and BBQ facilities. Good thing about this site, electricity was included in the price, no need to worry about running out of electricity.

Every year we stay at this lovely site. Trade stand at the Royal Highland Show and the on site camp is less than agreeable!!! So we choose to return each evening to a little slice of Heaven to rest & recoup after a long day, hot shower & a good meal. Very friendly staff and a well kept site. Returning 2014 our 4th year. Will book our slot for 2015 before I leave.

We spent 3 nights at the campsite in one of the wooden pods. We are a family of 5 - 2 adults and 3 children.
Friendly staff who were happy to help and advise. The wooden pods were great fun - kids loved it. Electric heaters provided but not needed - v warm! There is a communal kitchen - but expensive to use the cooker and toaster. £1 for 15 mins. Next time I'll take a camping stove.
Toilet and showers very clean.
Lots on site to entertain - games room, park and The Stable Bar.
Overall, very enjoyable and comfortable stay. Will definitely return.

We have just returned from a weekend stay at Mortonhall, lovely clean site, well looked after and well maintained. Even though the site was quite busy on Friday and Saturday night it was very quiet, also with the good number of toilet/showers we didn't have to wait once.
Great location for getting into Edinburgh, a £3.50 day rider ticket on the bus lets you go anywhere in the city.We will defiantly be back.
