We stayed here on 10/4/14 and really enjoyed our stay. We were travelling with 2 young children. We arrived early and hotel were great even though our room wasn't ready they said it wasn't any problem to leave car in hotel car park. Train station is next door and literally a 2 minute walk. The train journey to Waverley station is approx 5 mins and £3 return, which I thought couldn't have been better or simpler. We returned to hotel later that day and checked in and both kids got to pick a wee gift which was a really nice touch. Kids wanted to try out swimming pool so we headed down, we didn't need to worry about packing clean towels as they supply lovely big white fluffy towels at pool. Pool was spotless and so warm, it doesn't really have a shallow end apart from at steps so just need to remember to pack arm bands which we hadn't ! Rooms are very clean and modern. I just can't fault hotel, we didn't eat in hotel so can't comment on that, however it is in a retail park which has a kfc and a Krispy Kreme doughnut and tesco cafe, so plenty of places for snacks. The only thing missing from this hotel was an ice machine on each floor as we have young children we like to have a drink in our room once they are in bed but don't want to trail to bar, so an ice machine would be great. Would definetly return but would stay longer than 1 night next time

As others have observed, although on the outskirts of the city this hotel has the advantage that you can leave your car parked here and travel in and out on the excellent and very regular trains (every 15 minutes, £3 off peak return). Alternatively, you are next to the City by-pass and can therefore easily drive off to visit other parts of Scotland. The hotel itself is modern and functional, but none the worse for that and our (free upgrade) executive room was excellent value, with potentially good views - although the Scottish weather put paid to that! Breakfast was good. Staff were friendly, good humoured, ready with a smile and a joke. I'd go back like a shot, if I had the car with me. I've done city centre hotels here many times and although the equivalent Novotel in the city is also good and has the advantage of being within walking distance of the centre, those train rides made this seem a relatively small advantage when balanced against the hassle of driving into the centre.

Stayed here with my partner and it's a very good hotel! First of all it's in a great location, 5-10 minute walk from Edinburgh Park train station where you can take a train to Edinburgh multiple times and hour and arrive in 10-15 minutes. These trains run up until midnight. It's opposite a KFC and Krispy Kreme donuts...which is very convenient. The rooms are modern, with great bathroom facilities and they were very clean. The staff are so friendly and always there to help. The bar prices aren't the cheapest but fairly good value and the restaurant food is very good! If I were going to Edinburgh again I'll definitely stay here and I recommend it! So easy to get to by car/train...also so easy to get right into the middle of Edinburgh very quickly! 5 stars!

Spent an overnighter prior to flying out to Brussels. Excellent quality of accomodation 10 mins from Airport. Booked and airport parking 'deal' with the hotel.
Check in was fast and efficient. Staff friendly and helpful. Provided train times etc.
Room was good size and the bathroom facilities were excellent - large shower and soft, fluffy white towels.Train station 2 mins walk from hotel and trains run to city centre every 15 to 30 mins.
All in all a great stay for a very reasonable cost. We will use this hotel again.

Excellent stay at this hotel, as soon as we walked in to register, the kids were greeted by a member of staff, who gave them a choice of gifts, which was a nice touch, and got the break off to a nice start.
We had a minor problem with the pay movie channel not working in our room, as this could not be fixed we were given another room without any fuss.

We never ate in the hotel, but the restaurant looked nice, we did use the leisure club, which had a gym, steam room pool and jacuzzi the pool was at a lovely temp which made it very inviting, free towels are given so no need to bring any down, but you will need a £1 coin for the locker.

When traveling here set your sat nav for the hermiston gait retail park and you will find the hotel no problem.

There are a few places to visit within a 5mins walk of the hotel, such as KFC, Krispy Kreme, tk max, decathlon and a tescos, or if you wanted a 2min walk to the train station which does a return ticket into Edinburgh for £3.00.

All in a superb break, and someplace I will defiantly visit again, for info in our party there were 2 adults and 2 kids and the room was ample for us all.
