It wasn't a bad hotel - everything was clean, the room looked nice, etc. - I won't stay here again. Our door was broken when we arrived, and it took them the rest of the night to fix it. While they did fix the door, it set the standard for the rest of our stay. The WiFi was pitiful, and... More

Very good hotel, very clean and good facilities. Staff were very friendly as well. The food at the restaurant is also of good quality. My only criticism is that the weights area in the gym was quite small but that is a general criticism I would have for most hotel gyms.

Dear Reviewer, Thanks for firstly choosing to stay with us and secondly for sharing your feedback, I get that with free weights more room could be an advantage, however this clearly did not take away from your overall experience. Many Thanks Simon and Team More

Stayed here last weekend on a 5pm voucher have to say we were pleasantly surprised lovely hotel and the staff were fantastic. Jovita at the front desk was extremely helpful.

This Hotel is a fantastic, middle to low budget place to stay in Edinburgh. We were able to leave our luggage in the Hotel when arriving at 8:30, and then checking in at 2:00. The staff were very helpful and knowledgable about Edinburgh. The room was very clean, and the pool was a great touch. I would recommend this hotel,... More

Good medium to low priced hotel for an Edinburgh City stay. It had good car parking, is on a bus route, and sits high on Corstorphine Hill with excellent views to the west, so try for a room on the west facing (back) side of the hotel. The lifts only go to the second floor so you need to be... More
