We had an executive room and found it very clean spacious and well appointed. I particularity liked the large comfortable bed, the Nespresso machine and complimentary water. The towels were large and fluffy and the shower was good . Having a separate toilet and wash-room is good design. The staff were friendly and food was available late at night when... More

Second time I've used this hotel and when I return to Edinburgh again I'll use it again. Excellent value, great breakfast, friendly staff, handy underground car park, good location. Perfectly acceptable room.

A reasonable hotel with some pressing issues, the rooms are clean and tidy but very cramp and the bath room is bordering on being ridicules for the size! they clearly scrimp on the loo role which is something like from a 1960s school absolutely awful. Breakfast was totally chaotic but in fairness was nice but the brown and tomato ketchup... More

Had to cancel first weekend booked here but the hotel was great at letting me rearrange despite it being a prepaid basis. The room was very comfortable, enough room with the double bed and sofa bed made up. Asked for a quiet room which we were given, had no problem with outside noise, we were overlooking an inner courtyard area... More

I stayed here for two nights on business, having not stayed here for a couple of years. Good value for the location (near the Grassmarket), spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms. Good buffet breakfast with plenty of choice, both hot and cold food. The hotel was full when I visited (half term) but rooms remained quiet despite the through-traffic. Rooms seem... More

Large family group including adults, teenagers & children. 2 night stay with breakfast. Perfectly adequate & great value for money. Everyone enjoyed the stay, pool is small but serves its purpose ( perhaps a little too much chlorine the only concern). Lovely buffet style breakfast with enough choice & volume to serve everyone's taste. Waiting and reception staff very efficient... More

Stayed over night, rooms very clean and good standard. Breakfast fantastic great choice. Only one slight pro was the venue. Not great for disabled and you need to be of reasonable mobility to walk over the bridge to Princess Street . Otherwise perfect location. Would stay again.

We booked 2 nights at the Novotel, it was very reasonably priced. The girl on reception when we arrived was extremely pleasant. The rooms and large and well equipped: Large Smart TV, Iron, Hair Dryer, Ipod dock etc. The bathroom was great, had a bath and separate shower, and it was exceptionally clean. The pool and jacuzzi area was small... More
