Stayed overnight with my 11 year old daughter during Christmas week. Hotel has lovely public areas and a small but clean swimming pool. Rooms are clean and of a decent size, we asked for a twin and got a double with a sofa bed so were happy with that. We were also really pleased to be allowed to check in... More

Having just driven 300 miles to Edinburgh, there was an issue with the booking. I had to book a separate room for my six year old daughter because it was against policy to have her staying with us. We exceeded the maximum occupancy for a room ( 2 adults and 2 children ). This wasn't clear when I made the... More

Came on December to look at the Christmas markets and stayed for one night. The rooms were average and had a bit of a smell. The beds were uncomfortable and the room got very hot. The pool was small and the changing rooms were very small. Breakfast was ok but the scrambled egg looked disgusting and was disgusting. It's a... More

Stayed in one of the suites - a very lovely room and a beautiful view. The only issue ... the free WiFi, very slow! If you can arrange your trip to tie in with either the Fringe or the Christmas Market - you will have a great time! So, I will be staying again... actually, I have already booked again!

We stayed here with our 11 month girl in December 2014. This is a lovely hotel in a great location, about a 5-10 minute walk to the city centre. The staff can not do enough to help you and the gym and pool facilities are a rarity for a mid-range city centre hotel. The food at breakfast and dinner was... More

Nice little hotel not far from all the attractions. Room was fine - Premier Inn standard rather than anything fancy but clean and comfortable. Staff were really friendly. I left some stuff in my room and called after I returned home. Housekeeping called me and could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was decent too. Plenty of choice, room and... More

Good location, short walk to the GrassMarket food and drinks precinct and a little further to the Royal Mile. Reasonable sized rooms, well designed with a separate toilet. Comfortable beds, clean bathroom with plenty of hot water. Well appointed mid range hotel with all amenities needed for a short stay. Parking is available under the hotel......limited spaces, stay as long... More

Nice hotel, good facilities and we were able to check in early at 1 pm when we arrived. The only problem it was still noisy outside the hotel at 3.30 am in the morning. Good hotel to stay in and it was convenient to Princess Street. A good stay.

I was really looking forward to our stay in Edinburgh, tried to pre-planned everything as it was a birthday surprise for my boyfriend so wanted to make sure that everything was taken care of. Normally, we stay at Macdonald hotels as we like the customer service there and the overall quality which is very high. However, on this occasion went... More

We stayed here in early December 2014 as we wanted to visit Edinburgh's Christmas Market without the hassle of driving back home late at night (we only live 45 minutes away!) The hotel was very welcoming and we had an executive room which was spacious, well furnished and included both a Nespresso machine for the coffee lovers AND an electric... More
