“A bit overpriced”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Like all hotels when there is an event on in town, the prices start to soar. First impression is lovely with a very modern feel to reception, bar and rooms. Strong smell of chlorine in reception from the pool. Beds comfortable and shower great. Great location to hop on either the tram or train link into the city, but you are part of a retail park / waste ground/ business park area so don't expect any surrounding scenery. What stopped me rating this stay higher was the breakfast area was so tatty in comparison to the rest of the hotel. The carpet is worn and ruffled in areas and the breakfast buffet area was cramped/ compact. staff were great. Breakfast had a good variety of choice. £146 was just a bit steep for one night!

Thank you for your review of Novotel Edinburgh Park. As you say when events are on in town the Hospitality trade do vary in rates. Your points of our restaurant have been passed on and we do hope this will be rectified very soon.

Great location for splitting time between the Livingston Designer Outlet center and Edinburgh city center. Free parking onsite and although not used on this stay a gym and pool. Room was clean and spacious and the breakfast buffet had a good choice with options being topped up regularly. Best part is the close proximity to the tram station making it so easy to get into Edinburgh city center. Krispy Kreme donuts next door is also worth a visit.

Stayed over with my daughter , whilst visiting the city. Stayed for two nights and had a great stay. Staff are very accommodating and helpful. The station is very close to the hotel and its great to be away from the busy city at night. Retail park close as well for any shopping and food. great breakfast would stay here again .

Lovely and handy for the tram. Pool, gym and steam room to relax in if you're all fringed-out - and staff couldn't be more kind. Enjoyed our stay enormously and would visit again, possibly on business.

Great all round hotel. Rooms very nice. Stayed overnight for a family break to go to Edinburgh Tattoo. Ideal for us. Pool good. Warm and big enough to swim, also large steam room. Ideally positioned next to tram and train stops for Edinburgh Centre. Also next to retail area with Krispy Creme and KFC straight across from hotel. Tesco and other shops also walkable distance from hotel.
Breakfast buffet was again great.

Would recommend for a short stay in Edinburgh Area. Had to return late due to tattoo but still got the night bus to hotel area as trams/trains had stopped service.

Great as usual. Excellent room and location now even better as you are only 5 minutes from the tram. Good breakfast buffet and always attentive staff. Good parking and although we did not use it this trip the pool is very good.

Room Tip: Room facing AWAY. From the railway
