Needed a hotel for a couple of nights at short notice and can't believe our luck at finding Masson House. Room and ensuite small but very clean with everything you need. Staff extremely courteous and helpful. The breakfast was amazing; cold and hot buffet with a huge selection - including lots of fresh fruit (no tinned grapefruit!). Hotel is a... More

Located on the university halls of residence site, easy access to the southern half of the city but a bit far from the city centre. Modest hotel with small rooms and fairly basic features, but everything works as it should. Breakfast was definitely a highlight. Parking is free but not that plentiful, so at busy times you might struggle to... More

Great stay. Room basic but very clean and had everything we needed. The hotel was a very short walk from a bus stop which was very handy for getting into the centre. Breakfast was excellent; a continental buffet as well as a hot cooked breakfast. The staff couldn't do enough for us. All in all, a really lovely stay!

The hotel was very clean and the room was ideal for a few nights stay, but the walls are very thin. Would stay again for the same price. Ideal location just an £8 taxi ride into bars and shops. Plenty to do in the area.

This place is really ok, I was a bit put off by some of the earlier reviews and to be honest it's probably worth 3.5 rather than 4, but it's clean, the staff are very friendly and the breakfast is excellent. I noted an earlier review that said something like avoid room 101 like the plague, well guess which one... More

Enjoyable 2 night stay. Great welcome and breakfast superb. Value for money and I`'ll definitely use again. Part of the university campus and only a £8 taxi fare from Waverley Station and a 15 minute walk to the Royal Mile the hotel is ideal for a sight seeing trip to Edinburgh.

Ok - the rooms are not big, and the shower 'wet room' is just about room enough, albeit with every shower leaving you with a toilet with a damp floor, and the bed was a bit soft (but that's a personal thing). But it's a great price, a great location, and offers the same breakfast that is provided in the... More

This place is around students buildings and it is fair choise for young people. Breakfast is good. It is good place and it is not expensive comparing to others. Not expect any luxury. Rooms are clean and you will get new towels every day. Fair enough.
