This is fairly simple accommodation, but nonetheless fit for purpose. A single occupancy double bedded room was a minimum requirement, going on others' reports on this site. I cannot imagine many cats could have been swung in a single room. But the double I had was fine, though it only had a view of garages and the trees fringeing the... More

This is a really great place to stay if you are visiting Edinburgh. Located about a mile walk from the train station and not far off the main routes into the city it is the perfect city location. Lovely surroundings, comfy bed, and a great breakfast! Cannot go wrong!

Stayed in a single room for a conference at the same location. The accommodation services staff for Masson House and Pollack Halls more generally were uniformly helpful, cheerful and professional. The ensuite room was clean and comfortable enough, if a little austere and in need of a decorative refresh (scuff marks on the walls, etc). The breakfast was excellent with... More

Simple accommodations but clean, friendly, and central to everything. Delicious hot and cold breakfast included. Bus stop very near with 10 minute access to city centre. The only downside would be the creaky floors and poor sound proofing. However, the area is quiet so it wasn't too much of an issue. I would definitely stay here again.

This is such good value it is not true. Located outside the heaving city centre but easily accessible (and with parking), this is part of the Pollockhalls student residence. But actually it's a four star hotel at two star prices. Our room had just been redecorated, the beds were sumptuous, the shower amazing and breakfast fab.
