“Helpful staff and surprisingly quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Two of our homestay students missed the last train home to York so this was an emergency stopover for them. We arranged payment over the phone as neither of them had any credit cards with them. The receptionist bent over backwards to help us in York pay for the room using our CC. The boys slept well and enjoyed the breakfast.

I am glad that boys slept well and enjoyed the breakfast.

I continue to be pleased by Premier Inn. As with the others I have stayed in, the beds and pillows were comfortable, the rooms clean, soap and body-wash provided and the room came with TV, hairdryer, fan, kettle and tea/coffee.
Outside was extremely noisy but with the windows closed, it drowned out most of it. Inside the hotel was very quiet.
The room was perhaps not as nice as others I have stayed in but not so much so that it made it an unpleasant stay. It was little things like the TV was quite small, the room was quite compact etc but nothing major.
Staff were lovely too.

Really reasonably priced hotel with exceptionally comfortable bed. No frills approach - i.e. no microwave, but kettle to make coffee & tea. Great breakfast and meals available in hotel.
Excellent location. We easily to hotel from the train station. Easy walking to Grey Friars Bobby (great meals), Edinburgh Castle and key sites in the city. Buses were just along the street and frequent to get to other places.

Room Tip: Buy a bus pass, much cheaper than several bus rides. Also if going to Glasgow, the bus is really rea...

This was an exciting place to be in August for all of the festivities and was able to catch the double-decker bus of the city tour across the street from the hotel. Was walking distance for 6 of us to the castle and different venues of the 'fringe'; although my mum and dad (mid-70's) had to take taxis to-from the castle. And there is transportation to the top of the castle for those who cannot walk up the steep hill and against the wind by asking the security personnel at the intersection the taxi drops 'you' off. Hotel was clean and friendly with breakfast and a bar.

Hotel location was excellent for the Military Tattoo and other attractions. The staff were friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable and we had a very pleasant stay. Our room was nice (and quiet) and the breakfast (premier) is worthy of a special mention. We also tried the evening meals in the hotel and these were equally enjoyable and reasonably priced too. I would certainly recommend this hotel to family and friends if they needed to stay in Edinburgh.
