This is a really good hotel. It is right next to the zoo, and not too far off from the city centre. The hotel is right by the bus stop, so it's pretty convenient. You can get to the city centre in less than 15 minutes. This place was very affordable too compared to the other hotels in the city... More

Great location on the outskirt of Edinburgh city centre without the expense of staying in a city centre hotel. This hotel has free car parking and is only a 10 minute bus ride from Princes Street. The bus stop is next to the hotel and buses are frequent and cheap. Bus No's 26 & 31 go direct to Princes Street... More

If you want to travel around (Glasgow, Highlands etc.), the buses stop right at the bus stop in front of the hotel. So that's really practical. But the city centre takes 10-15 minutes with the inner-city bus. So, not so practical. The driver accepts only exact fare, which is £3,5, no change is given. There is a supermarket, pharmacy and...

The rooms were average and clean but the wifi was ridiculously expensive. Also, most of the lights in our room didn't work and the guy they sent had no idea how to fix them. Overall it was very average.

I seldom stay at the same place twice but have just had a third stay at this hotel, which is conveniently located for the attractions of Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.

I'd give this hotel a 3 based on location, which is a long ways from downtown, and on the decor, which is dated and a bit old. Bathrooms are tiny. However, the staff are pleasant and the restaurant was very good, so they do deserve at least 3.5. Probably a good place to stay if you are going to the... More
