We stayed at the hotel while we came up to visit Edinburgh Zoo. We picked the hotel due to its location, a ten to fifteen minute walk straight down the road to the zoo, and the price, at the time we stayed it was just £20 per person per night including breakfast, which was unrivalled in the local area.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for a few days. The rooms are spacious, well maintained and clean with some rooms offering great view out of the windows. It is also well located with frequent connecting buses to the airport/city. There are plenty of places to eat nearby serving Italian, English and Chinese food in addition to takeaway... More

Friendly welcome. Nice, old feeling hotel. However, bedroom very small single, and not the "business double room" that I booked and paid for. Overpriced, as so small there wasn't even space for a bedside table. I wear glasses, and a room were I can't put my glasses next to me is not good enough, The toilet room was too small... More

I was in this hotel 3 times, and it was very good. I spend time in Cumberland Hotel. Service is pleasant, rooms are neat and tidy and delicious breakfast. I will return to this hotels every time when i will be in Edinburgh. In my opinion Cumberland Hotel is a very good choise for tourists.

Where do I start? This is a tired hotel that badly needs both updating and some attention to detail. The plus point is that staff are helpful and obliging, but I am afraid that there are very few if any other good things I can say. When I checked in I was shown to a large but gloomy room that...

I stayed one night with my two girls in the family suite. Their was plenty of room and big beds. The rooms may need renovation, but the people are very friendly and helpful. The Scottish Breakfast was hearty and plenty.

We booked the hotel at the last minute for the 29th December winter months and very cold. It was very cold and miserable. Having a 3 month old it was very worrying and I went downstairs to see no staff anywhere (apparently only there till 11am) I did not sleep even though i had layers on and a woolly cardigan.... More

Advertised as a 3star Hotel, it isn't it's a guest house. Room was filthy, rubbish behind the beds, dirty walls, body hairs in the shower and open shampoo containers from previous guests, floor hadn't been hoovered, shower held together with cable ties and then there was a brownie red stain on the mattress protector! Room was stinking of ammonia and... More

My partner and I stayed here over the Hogmanay weekend and enjoyed a comfortable and pleasant stay. It is quite close to Edinburgh Zoo but It is a quite a distance from the city centre if walking but there are buses that run frequently to the city, the number 26 taking you to Princes street. As we were driving into... More

The staff was very helpful and friendly. Internet did not work properly and our room was dirty and in the attic. Very narrow, curved, steps to access. This was not a handy location for us, but that isn't their fault. Too far from the city, too far from the airport and located on the main thoroughfare, so very busy and... More
