This hotel is located about a 20 minute slightly uphill walk from Haymarket station (Waverley is about 5 minutes further). Since Waverly station is pretty much the centre of Edinburgh, it’s a similar walk back from the hotel to get to the shops.
My room was a good size, particularly the bathroom and shower but there was no bath. Internet is extra although the Premier Inn is next door and my computer comfortably logged into their free Wi-Fi without any searching. I ate in the restaurant which was pleasant albeit the usual fayre (pasta/sandwiches/burgers etc.). There is a tiny swimming pool, sauna and steam room in the basement (all free) which is very relaxing on a Sunday morning
I pre-booked in advance and at £48 per night at the weekend (breakfast and parking extra), was exceptional value. I would happily stay there again at that price although the hotel lacks anything so ‘extra special’ that I would be keen to stay at any price.
