We stayed in the Britannia Hotel in Edinburgh for 2 nights in September 2014. The hotel was being renovated at the time but there was little inconvenience caused. In reality, there isn't too much difference between the level of accommodation to that of a Travelodge in that it's very simplistic (the current renovation may change this). The beds aren't very...

We got a Groupon deal for two nights at this hotel. We stayed TWO HOURS ! The bathroom was dirty, wall tiles cracked and broken, the walls in the room are a very dark blue and depressing. The beds in the twin room were only fit for toddlers.....two little beds pushed together. The springs were practically sticking through the mattress.... More

Do not like putting negative remarks and this hotel at the moment is going through a refurb, but "the beds....." awful, terrible, horrendous. I am only 5.1" and a size 12 and I nearly fell out half a dozen times during the night in our twin room. It lacks atmosphere and is BASIC, and that goes for the breakfast too,... More

The bedroom was nice and comfy. But the service in the meal department was not very good. The breakfast was cold and it was full of ignorant students. We came back from the Pitlochry games and I got two dishes of chips for my husband and I and was told the food was for students only but he said he... More

After showing up for our stay the company took two payments out of our account. After arguing our case for an hour and showing.them statements we got a refund. Now two weeks later and they have just taken.a large amount from our bank account. Why do they still have our details? We are currently persuing them with police for fraud.... More

Stayed for one night on business & it's a disgusting hotel. Hairs in the sink, bathroom not cleaned properly, hairs all over the chair, leaking pipe in the bath. Bed & pillows were extremely poor quality & uncomfortable. I get that it's cheap but this is beyond basic, I've stayed in budget hotels before but this is the worst hotel... More

I made the huge mistake of staying in the Britannia hotel Edinburgh on Friday 5th Sept 2014. The hotel is like a building site, the rooms are a disgrace and unclean, breakfast is barely edible. I booked a twin room and was given a double bed with an old couch in the room, when I complained I was told this... More
