Stayed here for a week whilst on business. Hotel was chosen primarily because if proximity to the office I would be in but I am glad I stayed here. Check was swift and room was a good size, had a double bed and a large sofa with a big desk. There is a separate toilet and bathroom which had both... More

The location is perfect. There are so many restaurants- mexican, italian, indian or traditional and stores around the hotel. Bus stops are nearby. Complimentary breakfast was awesome, the service is excellent. The bath waz too small, can't even stretch out the hands.

Great hotel. Nice staff. They have an area to leave bags if you arrive early but cannot check in, leaving you free to explore the city Restaurant/bar that you can get a nice breakfast to start your day with after a comfortable nights sleep. Would stay here again

We chose the Novotel because of its location and its car park and because we had had a good experience in a previous Novotel. We were not disappointed. The hotel feels modern and fresh, there is a nice bar and a restaurant that serves really good food. My companion had the salt beef with mash, which he pronounced succulent and... More

Good location to visit the city of Edinburgh. And the advantage of the no surprise of a Novotel with clean, well designed and convinient rooms, good and professional service. Only one point of attention is the cost of the car park.

Stayed here for 2 nights midweek, good value for money. Location is very good..20 mins walk from Waverley station, five mins from Grassmarket, ten mins walk from castle and Royal Mile. City hop on/off tour bus stops practically outside. Room was quite large and light and airy. Strange arrangement of bathroom less than two feet from one side of bed... More

We stayed at this hotel in August this year. The room was large and clean, and there was a quirky little bathroom with sliding doors. We had asked for another bed in the room for our 5 year old daughter. It took several telephone calls and a long time before anyone came to make up the sofa bed for her.... More
