I stayed at the Capital Hotel for two nights on my first visit to Edinburgh. The hotel is in a great location; far enough from the city to be peaceful and quiet but with a bus route running past into the city, and over the road from a nice little nature reserve. Though the hotel looks perhaps a little dated... More

Dear Blampish Thanks for your feedback, it was great to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. The current building is an extended Georgian mansion with areas added throughout the 1950's 60's and 70's so the outside is less modern by today's standards, however we have invested considerable sums in recent years on the interior of the building to...

Not bad place, horrible location very far out and nothing really within walking distance for entertainment or food. Decent in house restaurant large rooms lots of pillows with all the extras. Beds are very hard, if from the US bring adapters. Pool and gym but for another cost. No facilities for massages or real pampering.

We stayed at Best Western for the first time and we are very satisfied with the service we received. The family rooms are good sized, very clean bathroom and comfy beds.

You just get the feel that an investment is needed soon or this busy hotel will decline. Maybe trying to do too much rather than get things right. Evening food disappointing - flash but tasteless, though breakfast good.

Have stayed at cheeper hotels and got the same level of decor. The reason we decided to pay the extra was that we want the swimming pool for our 2yr old to go swimming, and the hotel did not let us down. The pool had very long opening hours wich was great for our needs and its open to all... More
