When taxi drivers don't know where a biggish hotel is, it's a bit of a sign. The man on Reception introduced himself by saying he'd only just started work that day so he didn't know what was going on. He told me where my room was 'down the corridor' and then got on with booking in other guests. I had... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. As a seasoned traveller I have stayed in hotels in Vietmam, Cambodia, Laos and many third world countries and nothing could have prepared me for the quality of this hotel. We stayed there for 5 nights and unfortunately as we had a trade stand at the Royal Highland Show were... More

What a difference a new manager makes, rooms are clean and customer service is fantastic. Alan brought us up personally an extra blanket. Last time no one was interested, bargain price and now a real service. Keep it up will be back. And thanks Alan just for informing us the changes are being made.

Single standard room? I stayed four nights in a newly refurbished room number 436 on the fourth floor which was actually only one floor above a busy traffic road and a hotel logistics and coach park with running engines, too. I was not able to shut the windows as its frames were weathered and damaged. At night I could not... More

Stayed here on business in June 2015. Hands down worst hotel stay I have ever experienced. Several years working within hotels, hospitality, and now in management I can honestly say the state of this hote is disgraceful. Could not walk on the carpet, so I laid the blankets down as I hoped they were much cleaner. Receptionst asked how my... More

Just avoid... If you find staying here unavoidable, DO NOT EAT HERE. I went over my daily allowance of salt by eating 3 peas. Food was cold, bar staff swearing every other word. Parking is an absolute joke. No remote for the TV. No sugar with the tea bags in the room, not sure I want to try the shower.

I stayed 3 nights in a twin room with a friend. Checked in, staff quite busy. Receptionist tried to charge me for the room even though I gave her the accommodation voucher showing it was paid. However, for the rest of the stay, staff were pleasant and helpful. We were on the first floor with a window. Room was spacious... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
