“Kittyanne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We found it to be a very comfortable hotel, clean and welcoming and excellent service throughout. Good location for the center of Edinburgh and in easy walking distance to all the attractions. Also good value for money. Going back again this week-end with family for two nights stay.

Clean room, comfy bed, free wifi in the lounge/bar/eating area. No private car park so you can't pre-book a place despite what it says on the company website. There is a public multi-storey car park for £19 for 24 hours on Blackfriars, about a 400m walk with places on a Saturday. The hotel is nicely placed for the university, museum and Royal Mile.

We are sorry to learn you were disappointed with the parking facilities at our Edinburgh Central hotel Margaret B. This particular hotel does have a car park however it is run by a 3rd party company called APCOA and the charges are stated on our website, it does however only have 24 spaces and they do come at a first come first serve basis; however we do provide the option to pre-book during the booking process. Our reception staff are also available to advise our guests of the best parking facilities nearby should the car park by the hotel be full. Thank you for your feedback.

This is somewhere I travel every year with my group of students. It is a branded accommodation, and provides standard service as you would expect at all of their hotels. The rooms are spacious and bathrooms come with a power shower which is always hot! The location is fantastic, with only a few minutes walk to the Royal Mile, Waverley Station as well as the Castle itself. It is in the old part of Edinburgh and has many services nearby including shops, takeaways, bars, restaurants and banks etc. The hotel is very safe for groups, and the main entrance is operatred by a key card which is activated after 10pm making it a safe option for groups/young people. The hotel also has an on site restaurant and bar, making it convenient for all you can eat breakfast options which are only £6.99 if pre booked. I would recommend this accommodation based on service, location, proximity to the centre and safety. Enjoy your stay.

Overall our stay was satisfactory, the hotel was clean and well kept and was in a prime location for the areas we wished to visit however we did have some customer service and room issues. We found there was a lot of noise inside the hotel at night, and were woken by it on more than one occasion, with at one point (rather drunk) people being sent to the wrong room by staff and attempting to enter our room. We also had issues with the heating system and shower pressure in our room. Upon checking out of the hotel the customer service was very unsafisfactory as staff members bickered and argued with each other, ignoring customers and the growing queue.

We are sorry to learn that you did not have a peaceful nights sleep with us Kathryn2202. We ask our customers to respect reasonable noise levels and be courteous to others so it is regrettable to learn you found other guests to be noisy. We would expect our guests to be directed to the correct room on arrival so we are truly sorry to learn you found other customers had attempted to enter your room in the night. All of our facilities are required to be fully functional so it is regrettable to learn that you found our heating system was not working correctly and that you were unhappy with the water pressure in the shower. Our staff are also fully trained on how to provide a great service so we are sorry to learn you found them to be uninterested. We’d like to be able to contact you to find a resolution. In order for us to do this please could you visit our website and use the Contact Us button to tell us more and when doing so please indicate you have left a TripAdvisor review.
