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

Stayed for three nights during a conference in Edinburgh, the room needed a little tlc and seemed a bit tired but friendly staff and great breakfast. It's in a quiet spot at the foot of Arthur's Seat opposite the commonwealth swimming pool with some nice places to eat not too far away. Would stay again and look forward to soon.
