            I was struggling to find a low cost hotel on a rugby international weekend in Edinburgh. So very grateful when this hotel showed up on an Agoda search. It is about 1 mile from the town centre with very frequent buses up to the bridges. The room was lovely, spacious, quiet and comfortable. There was no food available at night however Cameron Toll shopping centre is very close with food options.

            We stayed only one night in the Hotel, but we were extremely satisfied! We wish we could have stayed longer! The staff was super kind, and helped us in everything that we asked for! We lost our pushchair on the flight and they provided another one for us, that in the end we could take with us as we had to travel further. The room was a bit small for us, though we were in 3 with a baby, but it was nice that the shower and the toilet facilities were inside. The hotel stays in a nice and pleasant area, close to a shopping center, and we could take a bus to the city center which took around 8-10 minutes, so the location was also perfect! We definitely recommend it to everybody, for singles, couples or for families!

Stayed a couple of times, once with two kids visiting family nearby at really short notice, and at the price on agoda, would definitely recommend and will be back.

            Good value for money we were only there for one night”

            Our shower did not work so we were very kindly giving another room. I wouldn’t personally stay for more than one night as there is nothing that stands out for this hotel but it was a good place to sleep and get ready and good value for money. There is also free car parking at the back which is safe and very handy and the bus stop is less than a minute walk from the hotel that takes you into Edinburgh. All in all I would recommend this hotel to someone staying for a few nights but probably not the best for children as the walls are so thin and you can hear everything people are saying in the next room.

            Above average”

            We stayed at the hotel for five days. Hotel located not too far from central Edinburgh so it was very easy to go into town. Although the room was clean overall, it was not hoovered properly on a daily basis and the beds were not being made. There was a day that the coffee mugs were not washed and we were not given any shower gel sachets, although we asked for them. Another thing that we didn't like was the fact that there was very little pressure in the shower which made taking a shower a very long process. The last and most annoying thing was that on our last day when we were checking out, we asked if we could leave our suitcase there for a couple of hours before taking the train back to London. We were told that we had to pay £7.50 to do that!!! We though that that was outrageous and that we had never ever experienced anything like this before! So we had to take our suitcase with us.

            Great price and amazing reception staff. Very friendly and helpful. Room was a good size and tidy. Had issues with Tv as the remote wasn’t working. So had to do without one as they didn’t provide another one. About 30 minutes walk from royal mile and shopping centre.

            convenient location for an overnight stay

            Hotel was located in a convenient enough area (although not near the city centre itself), with parking facilities on-site. Free breakfast provided from a certain hour onward. Rooms were rather small though adequately furnished and generally clean. Overall an alright experience if not particularly memorable. Good value for the price as an overnight stay.

            Charming hotel & neighbourhood ”

            Easy to get to city center by bus,bus stop is just infront of the hotel. I would suggest to get a multiple travel day ticket(cost £4 per day)if staying here. Charming & quiet neighbourhood. No lift, so travel light or do reconsider other alternatives

            A game of two halves ”

            Stayed in two different rooms Decor dated and worn, in both. bathrooms were in a poor state state of repair with mouldy grout and sealant in the shower cubicles. The first room must have been situated below the water tank as I could hear it filling late at night and again early in the morning. Very little interaction with the staff but what I had was friendly enough when I signed in. Wi-fi with a £3.00 supplementary charge was hit and miss with regular buffering issues when using Netflix. First night was in a twin room with the narrowest of beds with plastic liner sheets and I had a very poor nights sleep and was regretting having booked the hotel for a second visit later in the week. Second room was a double with a memory foam mattress and no plastic liner sheet, a totally different experience. I booked the rooms through AGODA they had advertised that the rooms were 65 % reduced from £156.00 /night so I was expecting a far superior room.

            It’s okay for one night stay. Not very close to the city centre, but there is a bus stop next to the hotel. My room was small and not very clean. Heating was off during the night. No chair, or desk. Bed was more, or less comfortable. Would stay again, but only if there is nothing else available.

            Needs a little bit of attention since I saw cob webs on stair lights, bulbs gone out stair lights not replaced. Wiring of room and kettle not great as was needing to move kettle to floor to use it. Only got 2 little milks for the teas and coffee for 3 day stay. Broken handle on chest of drawers not fixed And 1 shampoo sachet for 3 days. It just felt a bit neglected. Couldn't park my car in the car park as cars badly parked on the 2nd night so was parked on street.

            Quite good value for money, quiet area and handy for getting bus. Not impressed that towels left on the shower were not replaced and were left with wet towels to use again the next day. Nowhere in bathroom to place towels or toiletries. Ok for the money
