This hotel was once, I suspect an old large house converted and added to, to create a hotel where service comes first. My husband and I stayed for one night in a twin room on the top floor. As there were no lifts it was a bit hard work for my husband, whose not as young and fit as he... More

Visited Edinburgh for Xmas markets and stayed here overnight. Bus trip to city centre from outside hotel was ideal and we were made very welcome by the hotel staff. Restraunt evening meal was excellent and our two boistrous granddaughters were not a problem. Will definately go back.

The reception areas downstairs are very nice indeed, However the bedrooms are really old and tired. My curtains had a large rip in them.... and the bathroom was quite mouldy in places, but clean enough. Just very outdated, very 80's. The bed was also very uncomfortable and the price charged I wasn't happy. However, none of this would make me... More

I booked this hotel as we had a family wedding there and lots of my family were going to be staying there too so I was really looking forward to staying there. The room we booked was a classic room which we found incredibly small to the point only one of us could unpack at a time. There was also... More

We stayed at this hotel for 12 days whilst awaiting the arrival of our first grandchild in November 2014. We had a lovely large room which was very comfortable and clean. The bay window overlooked the park opposite and gave us views across Edinburgh and to the Firth of Forth in the distance. Meals were excellent and the bar, lounge... More

Comfortable reception rooms. Good service and pleasant staff. Great place for south western part of city. Easy access to city and to bypass. Would aim for this location again unless really had to be in city centre.

was pleasantly surprised by the quality and standard of this hotel, good sized rooms, very big and comfy bed, warm and cosy. bar was well stocked with whiskey and staff were helpful and friendly. A bit out of town but a bus from outside runs straight to centre or its a tenner in a taxi after midnight
