I have just returned from my third stay at this hotel. After my first stay, I was promised a room at the front of the hotel for my next visit as I complained about the noise from the trains.
The room for my second visit was booked 3 months in advance but I was told on arrival that they had overbooked and that I would be transferred to the Edinburgh Centre Hotel. They at least paid my taxi fare to and from the hotel and to and from my place of work the next day but it was pretty inconvenient. I was given a room upgrade which did go someway to compensate me and some points were added to my loyalty card.
It is a reasonably pleasant hotel and the staff are very accommodating but there is just something about it that makes it difficult to give it a good review. The trains are very noisy especially for rooms at the back of the hotel but colleagues who had rooms at the front of the building complained about noise from a coach turning up at 5:00 in the morning and disturbing their sleep (reversing bleepers!!). The rooms are very warm and leaving the window open is definitely not an option as it is just too noisy. I wish I could think of something positive but to be honest, I once again had two restless nights and if I could choose an alternative, I am sorry to say that I would.
