This was our first stay in Motel One. Fabulous location in the City Centre less than 100 yards from Waverley Railway Station and the Air Link bus service to the airport. All the Central Edinburgh day and evening attractions are right on your door step as well. The hotel is decorated in a modern minimalist style and provides all the basic amenities for a short stay. The rooms are spotlessly clean and bathrooms are well equiped. There are no tea or coffee facilities in the rooms, but if you read their terms and conditions there are none offered so it can't be a surprise to anyone on arrival. We never took breakfast in the hotel as we needed something a little more filling but looked ok. That said, there are a multitude of places within a few minutes walk serving breakfasts and we stumbled upon a gem just a few yards away in Cockburn Street in the shape of the Southern Cross Cafe, which I have also reviewed.
Really can't fault Motel One at all. It provides good quality, low cost rooms in central Edinburgh. Just what the town needs to enhance the growing ' budget plus' hotel market, providing stiff competition to the established hotel groups that have fleeced travellers to Edinburgh for decades.
