Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating to our needs. Hotel was clean and tidy and perfectly situated giving our room a view of the river beside the premises. Just a five minute walk from Haymarket station and a £8 taxi ride to the Royal Mile. If you like art, the Modern Art Museum is directly across the road with beautiful gardens and the graveyard next to it is well worth a visit also.

Booked for 1 night prior to booking 2 nights somewhere else. Just a fraction of the price I paid compared to the other one, and parking was free (although full, still free at front of hotel) For what you pay, there wasn't loads of staff, but the one manager who was there got everything done fast and was super friendly. I paid £29 for a night and wasn't expecting a lot, but the room was actually really big and clean. Great stuff!

Short visit to Edinburgh”

We only stayed 1 night as we had come to specifically attend 1 event. However, the hotel was ideal for the purpose and we intend to return for a longer visit. The hotel is an ex Travelodge hotel but to a slightly better standard. It took about 20 minutes to walk to Princes Street but is about 5 minutes from several bus and tram routes. The paid car park was a useful place to leave the car during the day. Breakfast and evening meals are available, The staff were all friendly and helpful.

1 hour check in but overall nice hotel”

Arrived at the hotel at 9pm, computers were down so they couldn’t check in guests, a long queue started to form. Waited over an hour but our room was upgraded for the trouble which we were very pleased with. Room nice, clean and quiet. Deserves better than the ratings it has. One thing I will say though is that there was 1 member of staff to cover reception and bar, whilst the girl was trying to overcome the system issue, angry and disgruntled customers at the bar were shouting at her to serve them. One more staff member would’ve made all the difference to minimise the pressure that girl was under.
