My Husband and I visited Edinburgh for a weekend in January to celebrate his birthday. We arrived around 4pm on a Friday afternoon, and there was a bit of a wait at reception to check in, but once we were seen the staff were very welcoming, helpful and efficient. We were delighted to be informed that we had been upgraded... More

Had a great short stay here in November. The room was lovely with a fantastic view of the castle, it's worth spending that bit extra to get the view! The staff were friendly and helpful, and breakfast was great too, if perhaps just a little overpriced. The only thing that caused us hassle was it was a bit tricky to... More

When staying in Edinburgh we normally stay here as its a great central location and they have a car park on site with a small fee to pay. The staff are always attentive and the chap on reception recognised us from a previous trip and welcomed us back. On entering our room we received a complimentary bottle of wine and... More

Stayed at the Apex over a weekend recently and could not fault the staff or the hotel. The location was great with a fantastic view of the castle. Once checked in, which only a matter of minutes, we went to our room which had a great view of the castle, was right at the end of the corridor and was... More

I went with my girlfriend for a short break. Great location looking at the castle, next to the school of which Hogwarts is based on, also near Elephant House, where JK rolling wrote the books. (Could tell i was with someone who loved Harry Potter) really close to all the attractions and station, clean and friendly. The sauna and pool... More

We stayed at The Apex International for the weekend. I had previously emailed to say that it was our first trip away since recently becoming engaged and if possible could we have a nice room. Check in was quick and efficient. We made our way to our room and were delighted to find we had been upgraded to a beautiful... More

Arrived on a very col d and very windy day. The first room we were given had very draughty windows and the room was freezing. However when we pointed this out to the management we were immediately shown to another room. Rooms are comfortable with all the usual facilities. Brilliant view of Edinburgh castle from the Heights restaurant on the... More

We stayed here for a New Years Eve break (31st Dec - 2nd Jan), and loved it. We were in the Gala Ball organised by the hotel for Hogmanay and it was fab, a 5 course meal with a ceilidh and we were taken outside for a lovely view of the castle and fireworks. The hotel is lovely, we had... More
