We went there through "late rooms" web page, to visit around Edinburgh, but the rooms were terrible ,the wallpaper hanging off, the bedding was not clean, just awful , more a truck stop/hostel than a hotel it's advertised as. Avoid Avoid.

As the price is cheap, the room is not very clean and bathroom is also not very okay.but the stuffs were very friendly. I would like to suggest the hotel to focus more on cleanliness. Overall, it s a good hotel to start with. I wish the hotel get better review next time.

Had a lovely night stay for my friends birthday, we got a big room with loads of space, staff were very friendly and helped us when needed, room was bright and clean! Would recommend to anyone, it is a bit out of the city centre but taxis are easily called!

Stayed here with the wife for an Edinburgh city break. The hotel is in a good location for getting into the city. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. There is a bus stop across the road and its only about 10-15 minutes into the city. Our room was clean and the beds (twin room) were comfy. We had a... More

I would recommend this for a budget stay. Only one pillow so a bit uncomfy, may be worth asking for an extra. Staff were friendly.never had breakfast so can't comment. If you get the number 3 bus it will take you to princes street and is only £1.50! Much cheaper than getting taxis all the time.

Booked this function hall for a birthday party, the hall is very dated but looked fine after we decorated it for the party but would not recommend at all. Dirty toilets, ran out of toilet roll, two grumpy looking bar staff who tried short changing a few guests, after getting pulled up then just shrugged their shoulders, they only stock... More

A group of us stayed here as a base to explore the distinctive culture and heritage of Scotland's finest city. Our stay was quite memorable from start to finish... The diverse array of friendly staff made us feel immediately at home with their wit and wisdom. Between us we had several rooms but without doubt the one to request is... More

We stayed for one night in a double room priced at almost £90, a very steep price for what we received. The website mentioned free wifi but it turns out that's only for the communal area downstairs and it's an extra £3 for wifi in the rooms. Breakfast is also not included, £4 for a continental, i.e toast and cereal,... More
