Visited on a Sunday afternoon to watch the footie. Hadn't been in for quite a while. Very pleasantly surprised. Good service in very comfortable surroundings. Certainly a good place to watch a game, eat or relax with a pint. Clearly a well run establishment and not a sports bar. Will be a regular visitor now.

I stayed here overnight on a two day business trip to Edinburgh. My room was very comfortable, with all the mod cons. It looked like it was recently refurbished, the bed was very comfortable and the room was very warm once the radiator got going. The only down side was breakfast. There was hardly anything other than a cooked breakfast.... More

A quaint hotel based a short distance from city centre was clean, tidy and ideal for our short break. It was very well priced considering we were staying for the rugby and found hotels charging upto £200 per night when Links charged £45. Would definitely stay again. Only down side would be parking restrictions of you stay mon-sat and will... More

A perfect place for one night. I had a very quiet room with a comfortable bed, good TV and shower. The extractor fan in the bathroom didn't seem to be working but otherwise my room was excellent. We had our meal in the hotel bar and received a discount for charging it to our room thus making it very good... More

Staff were amazing! They went above and beyond to accommodate requests and looked after us very well during our weekend stay. The deluxe room on the top floor was impressive. Super sized room, more like a suite with marble fireplace, seating area and huge tv. Will definitely come back to this hotel - loved it!!!

I always use this hotel when I visit Edinburgh. The rooms are comfortable and well furnished, and, important for Edinburgh, warm and cosy. Staff are friendly and helpful. I was immediately upgraded to a better room when I had a problem with the bathroom on my last visit. Great location. Easy walking distance into the city centre and close to... More

This is a truly delightful hotel and the employees were most pleasant and helpful during our visit. We had come from the USA for the Hogmanay festival and found the location of the hotel fine for our needs. We walked everywhere! We also ate at the hotel which was very pleasant.

We came here because of the tripadvisor reviews. When arrive found out the place was far from city centre. Hotel is very basic with bad quality rooms and not well isolated.

Good evening, Thank you for your review. I note that your stay was in March but I am still disappointed to learn that you did not enjoy your time with us. Whilst not right in the middle of the city we are only 3 bus stops or a 15 - 20 minute walk from the city centre. Although you were... More
