The location of this hotel is quite convenient as there are 3 buses that run regularly to and from downtown, only about a 15-20 min ride. It is right beside the zoo which would be great if you are travelling with kids. Nice amenities with a pool and fitness centre onsite as well as a restaurant and lounge. You can't... More

This hotel is located right next to the zoo, so it's ideal for a short trip to Edinburgh. There is a bus stop at the front of the hotel which takes you right into the city centre. The room was clean, a bit small as we had a child with us and the sofa was pulled out for her so... More

I have been here before back in March 2013 with my husband as we went to the zoo. The hotel was extremely handy for this. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast options were great too as you could choose what you wanted. The hotel was value for money. It is a nice distance out of the city... More

Our group stayed in 3 other hotels during our stay in Scotland. This final place left a lot to be desired. It was convenient to visits into town for the Fringe festival and the Tattoo, but the food was mediocre at best. They handle many groups, but with little or no control over them. We were the first into the... More

We have stayed here a number of times and cannot fault it. Great food, staff and service. Whilst it is not in the centre of Edinburgh the bus service is regular and just outside the front door and the new tram service is about a 15 minute walk away.

Clean, comfortable, friendly and helpful staff. We got there too early to check in and they kindly locked our bags away. They also called cabs for us during our stay and had a great cleaning service while we were there.
