Holiday in Edinburgh ”

On a trip across Scotland we did a one night stop in Edinburgh. Novotel was definitely the right stop for this. Very clean and had a nice vibe. Rooms were spotless and the bathroom was immaculate. Great quality shower. Gym was available as well as a spa, hot tub, sauna and steam room. The only caveat is that they are only available for use between 7am-10pm. But great extras within your price. I would recommend the queen suite for a couple

Very clean hotel that was easy to walk to the city center from. The staff was helpful in making sure we could catch a very early train on our last morning. Walking distance to Edinburgh Castle but it wouldn't be a recommended walk.
