A lovely hotel (students accommodation) 20 minutes walk to all the action. Very clean, sumptuous breakfast with huge field mushrooms! Good bus service if you don't want to walk. Staff so very pleasant, friendly and helpful. Five stars from me.

Really good value, managed to get a deluxe room with a really big comfortable bed, en suite with great shower, enough spare power points to charge everything, large TV, great choice of teas available in the room with ground coffee to use in the supplied cafetière. Really good breakfast choices, would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here whilst visiting Edinburgh. It was the only hotel that had free parking as we drove. Once there, we hadn't realised and what it DIDN'T say on the website was that it used to be university accommodation. However the hotel was nice, but the room was so tiny and still looked like student accommodation. The bathroom was a... More

Edinburgh is very expensive at the best of times but during August it is very much so. However, we found this hotel in the grounds of Edinburgh University, and it was great! The rooms are small and basic, but very clean. The staff were lovely and friendly and very willing to help. The breakfast was amazing!!! Central to everything and... More

Came here for just one night & it's absolutely brilliant! Ex student halls of residence so it's nothing glam but it's got everything you need! It's clean & tidy! Staff are so friendly & helpful. The location is great, about a 20 minute walk from the Royal Mile. Right next to Arthur's seat, which is good because you need a... More

The room was very large but a bit far away from the city. You can walk on clear day and it will talk little less than 35 minutes to reach the place. Frequency of buses is also very good but may have to depend on a parallel road for night services. The toilets were very large but the bath tub... More

Read the mixed reviews on this after booking so felt it was a bit of a gamble. Couldn't be more wrong. It was a bit of an unusual location within university grounds but the 24/7 security gate adds to the benefit of staying here. The reception staff were lovely very friendly and efficient. We booked the deluxe room for 1... More

The hotel is bit off the main market area but not very far. One can reach the main tourist places within 20-25 min by public transport. Rooms are neat and clean however they are quite small. Do not take top floor rooms, they have glass window on the top in addition to the window in the wall. There is not... More
