The management photos show a lovely hotel from outside at a distance. Best advice keep your distance. on close inspection the window frames are so rotten they are falling out and windows cannot be opened. Inside the carpets deteriorate with every floor you go up, they have dangerous gaps in them and metal edgings that are sticking up. My room... More

the hotel needs money spent on it. the rooms and bathrooms are tired. the highlight was dinner which a great surprise - the haddock & chips was delicious. the only reason i stayed was my usual hotel was full.

We stayed here for a long weekend in September '14. The pictures that the website shows of the hotel are not a real representation of the hotel itself. Our room was basic, tired and dirty. The only bonus was that beds seemed clean (we didn't dare walk around without our socks on as it seemed rather unclean). The shower was... More

I recently stayed here w some family and had a nice stay. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast and dinner was good and there is a nice little bar to enjoy a drink after a day out in Edinburgh. The hotel is out of the city center but the bus station is close by and you... More

This is a great hotel although I'm afraid that when you take a close look it is tired and in much need of work the staff couldn't be more helpful and welcoming but afraid in my opinion they are charging top prices for a hotel in need of a refurbishment to bring it in to line with other hotels in...

Nice hotel with good transport links to city centre and Edinburgh Zoo. Staff really friendly and helpful with a nice garden to sit and enjoy a beer. Rooms comfy enough but could do with more plug sockets (only had 2 and tv was plugged into 1). Wifi not so good in room but ok in bar/lounge area. Would stay there... More

This was a jaunt with my mum and daughter to celebrate mum's 80th. We chose the hotel for proximity to the zoo to see the pandas, but I didn't book my 'panda viewing slot' early enough so that was a no-go. The hotel was good for access to Edinburgh, though. Didn't want to drive into the city as I did... More

This hotel was booked as a gift by a relative for my fiancé and I to enjoy a night at the fringe as part of my birthday. The room came at a cost of £160 and included breakfast as part of our stay - so far so good! The hotel is very pretty from the outside, but that's where it... More

Would like to give this 3 1/2 stars but unfortunately halves not available. Stayed there on Saturday 23rd August - room not ready when we arrived but lovely friendly receptionist directed us through to the bar where we were served promptly and had lovely fresh sandwiches and a glass of wine while we waited for the room to be ready....

Tattoo break with friends, stayed two nights. Staff were friendly and overworked, food ok but that was it. Shower curtain, door and disabled chair filthy, tap continuously dripping in basin, toilet seat hinge broken, disability alarm in bathroom continually beeping. Lamp in room didn't work, drawer handle missing, sash on window broken, stain on wall and a very dusty table... More
