Me and my partner booked this hotel at the last minute while driving up to Edinburgh, as on Booking.com it looked a clean, comfortable hotel. When we arrived we were faced with a shabby looking front entrance which also had smashed windows. We checked in and paid for the car parking (£5), and went up to our room. We were... More

Grossest hotel I've ever stayed at. When I came back from our day sightseeing, I found someone had searched through my bag, clothes strewn out of my bag, and my tablet had been STOLEN. THIS PLACE IS DIRTY AND DANGEROUS!!! STAY AWAY!!!

Other than being close to the centre there wasn't 1 good thing about this hotel. I have emailed both the hotel and head office with my issue and still had NO REPLY AFTER A MONTH! We arrived late evening and checked in with a lady who was completely clueless and told us we are running out of rooms! Well we... More

Not up to par for a modern day hotel. Cheap price for Saturday night.. Which showed. The main issue was the non-smoking room that came with a complimentary ash tray and a foul 60's stench of a Working Man's club. Not all bad, next to the uncomfortable turn down was a leftover sock. I still smell of smoke.. The worst... More

Unsecure: Intruder (Foreign man) in our room at 3:50am. Fortunately nothing stolen or anybody injured. Confirmation from hotel manager that our room had been "accessed" at 3:10am on his keycard tool/ mobile checking device, but the times aren't "accurate". Horrendous customer service by hotel manager and staff on shift at the time of reported incident. (This situation is currently being... More

We have recently returned from our stay at the Britannia in Edinburgh. We chose to stay here as we heard that it's really good! Everything was fine, room was clean and great facilities. Most of the staff were friendly, but there was one lady and everything you asked her seemed to be a chore! Even though she wasn't doing anything... More

Where to start...? Unorganised on arrival. After waiting to get our room we were greeted with lots of noise from a) other rooms and b) outside. The hotel need not have windows as the gaps in the frame ensure a lovely cold breeze and noise from passers by. The highlight of the stay was when myself and my partner were... More

This hotel is tired and punching above its weight. The reception staff had to phone HQ to access my booking, the mattress is more springs than stuffing, the bathroom is yesteryear, the decor Spartan, the doors slam like a cannon shot, the wireless is slow as dial-up. All sad when the connection is excellent and the potential huge. It is... More

My experience was very bad. Booked it from booking.com and later on I modified the booking and changed the dates but I was charged for both the bookings on my card and now I am not getting any response from the hotel and booking.com as well. This is fraud. Moreover the room was newly constructed with paint smell in basement... More
