        The room was clean and the tv was a good size

        Loud cleaners and inexperienced hotel staff.

      • Couple
        7.0

        Very friendly staff at Reception. Nice, clean, modern rooms. A short walk to the heart of Edinburgh, otherwise there's a bus stop directly out the front. Easy to get to on the Airlink Bus from the airport.

        Our room was quite noisy - traffic noise throughout the night.

      • Single
        7.0

        I enjoyed the service provided by the staff - they were excellent!!

        The room I was allocated was a corner room, which adjoined a major road. As I had had a long journey to the hotel, and was leaving the hotel very early the following morning, I didn't appreciate this. However, being from the uk, Istaff would have realised this, and allocated me a room accordingly!

      • Single
        7.4

        The room was comfortable and clean, as well as in good repair. Everything worked as it should. Compared to other available hotels, it was moderately prices, although hardly inexpensive. It was quite and seemed safe. It also offered free Internet.

        The location was a bit out of the way from the city center and the food in the restaurant wasn't merely adequate.

      • Single
        4.2

        They cleaned the rooms well.

        Thin walls you can hear snoring from the next room.

      • Couple
        8.2

        The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. They went out if their way to provide information.

        The only issue about the hotel is the limited car parking spaces.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Good location and nice size rooms

        I have one issue the toilet was not flusshing properly so had to un block with the shower.Told staff on desk they asked if we would like to change the room , by that time we had a our gear unpacked so did not fancy moving.Told the guy on the desk that someone form the maintenance team could fix this by increasing the level on cistern, unfortunatley nothing happened.When leaving I told the girl on the desk something need doing with the cistern as it would be unfare on the next guests

        Friendly, clean and very friendly and helpful staff.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Staff were very friendly and there was a lively atmosphere. The room was a good size and the hotel was in an excellent location for transport connections, city centre, parking and Murrayfiekd Stadium.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        professional helpful staff

        inadequate bar, no seating to enjoy a drink, restaurant too small which led to queues for meals

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        The room was comfortable and clean. Probably more a business hotel than a holiday hotel. Certainly perfect for a few days. Very nice food.

        The breakfast service was really slow. Next time I shall certainly leave plenty of time.

      • Single
        6.6

        Close to the station, on the airport bus route, convenient

        no airconditioning, window open, too noisy plus staff used area out back for smoking and talking loudly. paid for top room which was good but lack of aircon was not good

      • Group of friends
        7.0

        On arrival we were allocated double bedded room, despite having booked twin. This was changed on our taking issue with reception but it was clear some other later arrival would be faced with a similar fate. Not good but a fairly standard practice in the hotel trade these days unfortunately. Please do not accept this if faced with a similar situation, you are entitled to get what you have paid for.

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        Very friendly staff, near city centre,lovely breakfast

        Very small room on the 4th floor, tiny window not much storage space and no where to hang coats other than in cupboard, nowhere even to hang wet towels

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Helpful staff as arrived after overnight flight and had opportunity to freshen up prior to check in.
