4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW via mobile

Room was well heated with plenty of storage. Tea and coffee making facilities were replenished daily along with the towels. Really nice staff and great free WIFI everywhere. Our room, 520, had a poor quality decor but wasn't damp or inhospitable. Lack of electric sockets and public transport was an issue. All in all, for just under £40 a night,... More

We checked in at midnight, late flight in. The room was old, cold and dirty, carpet not vacuumed, hairs in the basin and shower. In the morning we asked to be moved. We were then given a brand new room. Much better but freezing cold. We waited an hour for the heater to warm the room up. I also asked... More

Found room 402 to be clean and the bed fairly comfortable however parking your car is an issue tight spaces on a steep hill. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that, however the windows in this room were full of condensation and the level of traffic noise they let in is unacceptable made a good nights sleep difficult to...

Booked this hotel to spend some time with friends and sister in law for her 50th Birthday. I live and work in Scotland spending many nights in hotels due to my work. I am generally very easy to please in that I only require a good clean room with basic comforts. I arrived here prior to the other guests in... More

Rooms are spacious for an budget european hotel, however it's not very clean. One of my towel was yellow, not sure if it was stained or just dirty. They don't clean the carpet very often, some dirt stayed on the floor for days. A bit far from the city center, roughly 30 min walk from Waverly Train Station.

A bit worried after reading previous reviews so phoned ahead and asked for a room that had been refurbished, which we got. Room was basic but clean and all new furniture, bed and carpet, so they are improving the place.Fan blowing air into room all the time was a wee bit annoying but you get used to it, suppose its...

Arrived at the hotel after reading bad reviews I was a bit worried but got into reception and the receptionist was nice and booked us in good. When walking the the room there was an awful smell around the hotel, got into the 'box' room and the smell got worse! Looked around the room and the room was covered in... More
