I booked the Novotel on hotels.com for my family who were visiting Edinburgh for 3 nights and 4 days. They did say that they were very comfortable in the hotel - which is great. And they also said they had a pleasant stay and the location was very central and excellent for getting around. However the experience was let down... More

Stayed here twice, both times for the Fringe. Enjoy this hotel very much, it's well positioned for the city centre, has a pool which means we can chill out back at the hotel having a swim, sauna etc. Breakfasts are generous, plentiful and tasty. Nothing is too much trouble if you ask for it. Very quiet, great views, comfortable. Will... More
