We stayed here during the Fringe, mainly because it was at least £100 cheaper than anywhere else!
In our wisdom, we booked train tickets that got us into Edinburgh before 9.30am despite check in being at 3pm. On the off chance they had an early check in available I emailed assuming we'd have to pay extra. They emailed immediately to say it was fine and we could check in whenever. Good service. We continued to receive excellent service, thankyou reception staff!
We were pleasantly surprised by the room, it was clean and sizeable with a pretty decent bathroom. The room came with a kitchen which while not brilliantly stocked or clean was useful for reheating things and would be even more useful on a longer stay.
Although the hotel is slightly further out than other hotels the bus service is brilliant and runs from just around the corner at least every ten minutes. A day pass is £3.50 and we found it well worth it although a single journey is £1.50 if you won't be bussing much.
All in all we would stay there again as the value is second to none during the Fringe.
