We booked the Apex Waterloo Place in Edinburgh for a family night out and overnight stay after having stayed there previously. The hotel was clean, luxurious and right in the heart of the city. We arrived a bit earlier than the specified check-in time with the view to leaving our bags with reception, however, to our delight all 3 rooms were ready for us!!! Our rooms were exceptionally well appointed and on the same level as the pool, spa and steam room although only my daughter and her boyfriend made good use of them. Although not having seen this area for myself, my daughter reassures me that they were delighted with both the facilities available and the cleanliness. We all received excellent service from the friendly staff, enjoyed a lovely breakfast from an extensive menu and had a thoroughly good stay in the hotel. Couldn't fault it in any way!! What makes this hotel a wee bit more special than most is that its actually owned and run by a family.... far more superior than some of the larger well known chains that most of us would associate with this calibre of hotel. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing a hotel in Edinburgh!!!
