Booked into a 'family' room. There was a pull out sofa bed for my kids. Decent beds but too small for the four of us. With the sofa bed out, there was hardly any space for our luggage. The shower was tiny, if you were any taller than 5'3" and you dropped the soap on the floor, you'd have to... More

Very nice hotel, good location. You can walk to many areas of interest. Edinburgh Castle and the beginning of The Royal Mile is quite close, but up many steps. Princes Street and North/South Bridge are 10 - 15 minute walks. Grass Market area (with some shopping and wonderful pubs) is a 5 minute walk. There are a number of museums... More

I stayed a night at this hotel for business. I have stayed in a few Novotels and the rooms are identical with the same furnishings even down to the pictures on the wall, so you know what to expect. I chose the hotel for its price, being relatively inexpensive and its location, close to my first meeting. I found the... More

We had a great weekend at the hotel with our young family. Great location, good breakfast, well furnished room and the whole family really enjoyed the swimming pool. Would definitely visit again in the future.

If you are looking for a good quality but not break the bank hotel, you can not go wrong with the Novotel. We had a great stay in a spacious clean room, which more than met our needs. The hotel serves a good breakfast and has a present swimming pool with jacuzzi. It is just a short walk for the... More

Great place to stay, central to the castle and all the other attractions staff friendly, buffet breakfast very good, only downside was the strong smell of chlorine from the pool as you walked in the door and given the wrong directions to find an atm. Good long walk from the castle down the mile.

At the end of our trip through Scotland we wanted to stay in Edinburgh for a few nights. As usually you wind up in a diverese range of hotels on a fly-and-drive, we wanted to at least end our vacation in a hotel that would give us a reliable experience and since we've had this in the past at a...

Though we got a room at the far end of the corridor and the room slightly smelly (nothing too much to be put off), it was a good experience. Good solid breakfast buffet, good facililites (I used the turkish steam bath for myself and swimming pool with the kids). The hotel prepared breakfast bags as we had an early checkout... 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
