Very nice and comfortable ”

The hotel is perfectly located on the outskirts of the city centre. You can visit the Edinburgh zoo right next door or hop on to a bus to take you to the city centre. The bus stops are right outside the hotel. The hotel had executed all the requests placed by us perfectly. There was no room for complaining as regards the cleanliness of the hotel. The staff was friendly and cooperative. All in all a very good holiday experience. Cheers

Great hotel out of centre”

Hotels built in this era look a little dated from the outside, but this holiday is lovely inside. The reception and huge bar/restaurant area look very newly refurbished. Room was nicely decorated, very modern and comfortable, altogether the bathroom again felt a little dated. If you don’t want to pay city centre prices, this is a great choice, and you can jump on a bus right outside to get into the centre very easily.

Kudos to Claire, the evening supervisor at reception, August 6th. There was a mix up in my previous booking and she secured another site for me, absorbed the cab fee, and went even further to see the personal items I left behind in my room ,#101, were delivered to me the same day. I so appreciated the fact she went the extra mile and will be forever re grateful I received those items. Telling my story when I arrived home further enhanced my gratitude for her kind and considerate gesture. Thank you, Claire , so very much. Rosa Giletti

If you are going to the Zoo or to see Edinburgh with kids it is a good place to stay. An easy taxi ride from the airport and is on the bus route to get you into Edinburgh for seeing the sights. Kind of no-frills but with kids, it can't be beaten.

The main gripe at this hotel just now which is not mention when booking is that the hotel rooms are undergoing renovation and the floors are a building site from morning till 5 pm,banging drilling etc. Don't know if the room we had was renovated . If not it really does need spruced up. If it had been its not the best.

The hotel is very large and on the city ourtskirts, near Murrayfield and the zoo. The corridors and rooms, inc. bathrooms, are quite dated and tired.

Ideally situated hotel for arrival and departure into Edinburgh from main routes North,West and South.Big hotel with plenty free parking.Good restaurant for basic no frills food.Its a 100% family hotel which caters for young families with children.Its adjacent to the zoo and at times its difficult to tell if your in the zoo or in the hotel! Because children are running wild and free everywhere.Don't stay here if you want peace and quiet.It wont happen.The rooms share long corridors and the doors slam shut.You will be awake as soon as the early risers head for breakfast.Excited children will be your alarm call as they make their way to the 3 very small lifts.
