Worst hotel ever! For the simple two day stay me and the visiting two kids absolutely found this property total rubbish! Check in: despite requesting for early checkin - wait half a day for the room Check out: despite speaking and attaining approval from the night manager - the hotel had the audacity to check in my room, pack my...

Stayed late August. The hotel is around 20 Minutes from the city centre by bus which stops right outside the hotel (Down some steps) Taxi cost £9 bus £1:50 each way. The hotel is clean and traditionally furnished, the thing I like about Best Western is they are all different including the rooms unlike Premier And Holiday Inn's. We had... More

Service was good but quality of the food on offer was ordinary! The soup on offer was leek and potato which was so thin and tinny, it could not have been home made! Would not be back in a hurry!! Definitely not recommended! This is supposed to be a quality hotel - no!!!

I should actually like this hotel. There is nothing wrong with this hotel. But it kind of irritates me. It was convenient for a business trip and for that I would come back, but not sure if I would chose it for a private trip. It is the little things like the fact that the room key demagnetised every day... More

We visited Edinburgh during high season, early August. We were shocked by the hotel and B&B prices. This hotel also expensive in our opinion. One positive thing is that the hotel has a great location for going to downtown Edinburgh. It has a free parking and there is a bus stop just 2 minutes walk from the hotel. The bus... More

People should read reviews before booking a hotel! There is no lift but there is a porter. The bedrooms are warm so open the window. This hotel is getting a facelift and if other rooms were like mine (205) I would be more than pleased. All the staff I dealt with were more than happy to help and went out... More

Booked for a Business trip, but good location for the Fringe, very good rooms and hotel has a warm atmosphere. Only slight grumble was the breakfast which was not as good as anticipated. But would use again when next in Edinburgh

A Lovely hotel. We spent a night with our little girl as we took her to Edinburgh Zoo and Deep Sea World. The hotel was beautiful and the staff went out the way to make her feel like a princess. I would t advice booking it through Booking.com as we had problems when we tried to check in and it... More
