We've had a very good experience here, so much that we've stayed quite a few times now. The service has been very good, very friendly and helpful. We know our way around, and we mostly want it for a clean, safe, comfortable place to sleep after a long and busy day out. And it's all for a reasonable price.

Acceptable location (walking distance to some restaurants etc, and also Castle etc if you're keen). However; poor value for rate paid - tired/dated amenities - no onsite management - paper thin un-insulated walls. Suggest there's more pleasing accommodation options for this kind of money.

The room was adequate. It was very clean, but the bed was hard. It was also a little further out from the city than I would've liked. Heads up if you book the Drambouie Room then the bathroom is not attached to the room.

Mw Townhouse is located near Edinburgh City, easy to get to and well connected with transport into the city (15mins); the room was clean, well equipped; it took a bit long for warm water to come in the shower which is a pity because of the waste of it and of course it's annoying; breakfast is ok, nothing special; breakfast...

Let me start with the good things. The accommodation: our room for two was on the ground floor with a balcony exit to the backyard parking. The room was spacious, furniture ok. The bathroom looked brand new and I have no complaints there. The location: bus stop right outside the hotel, 3.50 pounds for an adult day ticket, 15mins to... More

I can't imagine that anyone would give this place a good review. Other people must have very low standards as to what is or isn't a nice place to stay. Their web site description states they have luxurious standards of comfort, high quality accommodations along with a hearty breakfast. None of this happens to be correct. We told the owner... More

Had to have a double room as no singles available.(which made it expensive). Nice big room, clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was adequate. Friendly,helpful staff. Would stay again. Can`t understand the negative comments!

Stayed here last weekend for two nights and after reading some of the less than positive reviews on here I was pleasantly surprised! Nice clean, big room with a spacious en suite, free wifi and parking and the staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Good continental breakfast each morning and a bus stop right outside with services... More

We stayed for only two nights, and thank God for that! The room was damp and cold, the sheets were damp too, as were the towels, and they smelled of mold. The toilet didn't flush, and the water in the shower was barely a trickle, and barely warm. The breakfast was expensive, not worthy of the name English breakfast, and... More
