All needs are catered for whether business, short breaks or longer stays for all ages. We hope to visit again in the future. Location of the hotel is ideal for visiting most of the places of interest by foot if you are able or reasonably priced taxi. One attraction is situated right next door. The Fire Museum.

Bathroom was well set out with separate shower cubicle. Also nice idea the toilet was was not in the bathroom but completely separate. All in all nice room... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in April. Lovely clean hotel. Pleasant staff. The room was nice and clean and big enough for 2 adults, 2 kids. Breakfasts were good, not sure if I would want to pay £14 extra but we had them included. We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening, but we did have drinks... More

Overall we had a great stay at the Novotel in Edinburgh. The staff where excellent, rooms where ok, dont go for executive as these are just the same as standard with slippers and a robe at extra £50 per night. A bit out of the centre kn terms of location but value for money if booked on cheap sites.

We stayed here for two nights and it was as advertised. A central location suitable for families. Car park was full so we did need to walk about ten mins back to hotel from Semple Street (great value though at £16 for the entire weekend as we just walked everywhere). As we unloaded car I could have done with a... More

Lovely view of the castle from the room. Hotel is close to a stop for the city sightseeing bus, and other bus stops. Not too far to walk to the... More

On entrance to this hotel you are immediately dazzled so much by the bright lights and strange seating arrangement that it feels like you are in a car showroom.Everything is open plan which results in a smell of the pool and restaurant mixed together. The rooms are very strangely laid out with a separate toilet away from the bathroom and... More
