First room we stayed in the bed was so worn i felt the box spring underneath, we were then told the beds were all replaced recently in January. I have no idea what with as it was passed it. We were moved onto another room which had exposed electrical wiring hidden behind a table where the lamp wasn't even plugged... More

The hotel is in a pleasant location with plenty of buses to and from the city centre and the airport. The nearest pub, on the corner, is great - comfortable and friendly with a good vibe, and there is an ok - ish Indian next to it. The hotel rooms are small but fine for a short stay. The breakfast...

Booked the 5 bed family ensuite room for a lads weekend watching the rugby. The room was clean, warm, quiet and the beds very comfortable. No complaints from any of us. The location was ideal, bus stop outside the front door takes you to Princess St in 10 mins. Bus runs every 20 mins so no need to get a... More

Quite Probably the worst hotel I've ever stayed in, most defiantly the smallest room ever. Stay away from Room 7 at whatever cost. No wardrobe, no chest of drawers, no bed side cabinets or side lamps. We had to stack our small holdalls on top of each other in front of the door as there was no where to store... More

Really basic hotel but I suppose everything you need. Beds were clean and comfortable, the shower took ages to warm up but was nice when it did. Room 1 had a really loud extractor fan that would take ages to go off, and the toilet itself was erratic. The breakfast was really basic as well but it did a job... More

We were looking for a very reasonably priced B&B as all we needed was a bed for the night because we were visiting family in Edinburgh. We found Merith House for a very cheap price at a time when our normal B&B was very expensive because it was half term. The stairs others have mentioned were not a problem for... More

Between my wife and I we have seen large part of the world staying in top hotels and low budget accommodations. Still we both agree this is the worst place we stayed. The state of the room was so bad we were appalled to walk around it without shoes on. The ensuite had almost rotting shower head and loose tiles.... More

I needed somewhere to stay in Edinburgh at short notice, with a limited budget. This hotel was the cheapest available, I wasn't expecting,much but it was okay. I didn't realize the card charge also applied to debit cards, which was pretty annoying, as no where else seems to charge you extra for debit card payment. The room was small, with... More
