My first impression was that this was nicely decorated hotel, until I saw the room! Well, the bath room to be exact. It was in desperate need of updating as it had ill matching tiles ,some broken or missing altogether. The room itself was very pokey and hardly room to move. The bed itself was hard and not comfortable at... More

If your idea is to book there,... More

We didnt stay at this hotel but visited the bar of this hotel whilst staying just along the road. The hotel is friendly and very welcoming, the prices to stay here are very fair. The rooms look very comfortable even if not luxurious. The hotel is family run and above all the staff/owners honest and friendly. Ignore the poor ratings... More

I spent a busy August weekend in Edinburgh, and the Argus Hotel fit the bill perfectly for a reasonably priced place to lay my weary head down at the end of the day. Conveniently close to everything, but not right in the thick of things during the busy festival. My small single room on the first floor was clean and... More

Myself and my partner went for a weekend away and had a good time. The hotel is in a good location about a 10 15 min walk to bars and restaurants. The rooms were basic but were just what we needed, the rooms were clean which is the main thing and had its own bathroom. The food was average. the... More

However, that's pretty much it with positive. The two rooms we (4 people) had were quite small, in one you could hardly fit... More
