4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Clean quiet standard Britannia used by couple coaches and contractors. Excellent accessible rooms, helpful staff and plentiful breakfast BUT check the location suits you. The one way system in Edinburgh can make it a bit convoluted to get into the centre and public transport is limited just here. Fine if you're on foot.

We thought this was a bargain rate, but by the time we added on car park charges and taxi fares to and from the Royal Mile, we'd have been as well off at a more expensive centre hotel. We'd paid for an executive room but were told there were no executive rooms - we had a refund but it took... More

Hotel was clean and comfy. Had a view of the river which was nice. In a semi good location. Employees were nice. Only bad thing was I was double charged for my stay and didn't realize until after I got home. Wrote to the hotel about it but never heard back and that was two weeks ago.

Okay it was only £45 but parking cost £5 for overnight. Bedding was torn. Only one small up for crappie coffee and old tea. The door closers do not work on any door near to us and therefore they slammed - all night! Ventilation was non existent as there was no window and the loo extraction did not work.

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.
