A new hotel outside the city centre, but next to a very quiet railway station at a Retail park that's one stop to central Edinburgh. So you get all the benefits of the capital without the cost. Buses into the city also run frequently (and cheaper than the train). Location is near the Gyle shopping centre and from there you can get a bus to the Zoo to see the pandas. A couple of train stops in the opposite direction will take to you to West Lothian and into Livingston where the McArthur Glen designer outlet is based. You can even go into Glasgow on the same train.
I've stayed at this hotel only once when I was unable to get home from work when heavy snow fell (I work nearby). It's a typical Premier Inn in decor. It is very clean, quiet, the staff are great and helpful and friendly. It really is one of the better Premier Inns I've visited and I stay in them a lot. There is a Costa coffee shop , a restaurant and a bar. Everything you need after a day of wandering about Edinburgh or the Lothians. Parking is also free. There's a large Tesco supermarket is in the nearby Retail Park to purchase goodies for your room.
It's also inexpensive. So forget about cramped expensive rooms in the city centre and eye watering parking costs and save your money by staying here and spend the difference on nice food and wine (or whisky)!
