My partner and I stayed there for one night during this year's Edinburgh Festival and were attracted to it due to the location. When we arrived I thought it looked quite good from the outside. However, I was really disappointed once I arrived, checked in and saw the room. The twin room was clean but very basic, the outside window... More

There really isn't enough room here to explain how bad this hotel is. Unfortunately it has some serious problems in terms of its comfort, appearance and management. Needs some intervention by the company to get a grip of it and turn it around. This hotel should not be open for business as it stands. Apologies for the frankness but the... More

My first impression of this hotel wasn't helped by the fact that I stood waiting at the reception desk for ten minutes while the three young staff behind the desk totally ignored me whilst sorting out something else. Fair enough they were busy but a simple 'Hi, I'll be with you shortly' isn't too hard! There are renovations going on... More

Shabby and run-down as others have said, though perhaps not unacceptably so for a 3 star place. We stayed because they had availability when we booked during festival time, and they were a bit cheaper than the much more up-market and better-located competitors. Multiple service problems. 1. We had booked for 6 nights but then had to cut that back... More
