Quite an old hotel. It is noisy. Especially during the night.The bed I wouldn't let my worst enemy sleep in. Springs almost jump through the top of the old matrasses. Unless you are a fakir these are not the beds you'd like to sleep in. The owners of the hotel are quite friendly. They had a fantastic tip; visit "the... More

Stayed in the Merith House Hotel for 1 night with my Husband as we were visiting Edinburgh for a meal at The Observatory Restaurant. Arrived around 1.30pm and we were greeted by a man who was friendly enough and asked us to fill in a registration form which I did. We had to pay for the room up front (5%... More

Spent three days there in a family room with our grandson. Clean, comfortable and the staff were brilliant. Breakfast (Continental) was satisfying and I recommend it to anyone wanting a reasonably priced stay in Edinburgh. Bus stop at the door and near the Royal Yacht!

We had a long weekend in edinburgh and stayed here. We had room 14, it was small but met our needs. Staff were friendly enough and answered our questions and the lady got us extra pillows when we asked. Breakfast was continental and theres a bis stop just outside to get into town. All in all a good stay and... More

I stayed here long term for work purposes, IT Contracting in Edinburgh, home in Surrey. First of all chose the hotel as it offered great value for money, that was my main requirement. The Hotel is what it says on the tin, great location (Golf was first played across the road), a sound bed for the night and a really... More

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor we were a bit dubious after booking this hotel. We were plesently suprised though. On arrival the girl seemed cheerful enough,you pay an extra charge for credit card ( although we already read this ) but we took the option to pay cash. The room was small but ok for our needs, silly shelf above... More

My girlfriend had booked this hotel on booking.com, It had looked very attractive on the website but it was clear the photographer did some camera tricks to make the room look bigger. On entry to the hotel we were greeted by a miserable woman who had no hospitable aspect to her personality. We had to pay before we saw the... More

Room was a single one with shower. Sink was tiny with not much room to clean teeth. The walls were very thin and I could hear the [full] conversation (and more) of the couple next door. The owners were miserable and never once asked myself if everything was ok. Breakfast was basic continental, the coffee tasted like it had been... More

Many thanks for your review. We are sorry that you felt the room was not upto the usual standards, but when guests arrive before arrival time and want to check in early the housekeepers may miss cosmetic things due to having to rush around, this could have been mentioned when you passed reception on your way out and in the...
