We had booked 7 nights at this hotel but checked out after one night. We had never been to Edinburgh before and when we arrived at hotel after flying from Dublin we were almost laughed at because we had arrived too early to book in. It was 11.30am. I understand that but front office staff were rude. However we were...

Dear Assey412 Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. Please accept my apologies on behalf of the hotel for the shortcomings in service you experienced on arrival at the hotel as this is certainly not reflective of the warm Scottish welcome we aim to provide our valued guests.

I stayed for a brief visit to Edinburgh. I'd stayed at the hotel a few years ago and it was fine, if a little chintzy and old-fashioned. Since then it has been refurbished (I don't know if it is completed) so when I arrived at my room it had a more modern decor, was clean and spacious with a large...

This was our second stay in this hotel, the first being about 4 years ago. It has changed a little but mainly in the decor which is very tasteful (and Scottish). When we stayed her last time we had one of the large turret rooms and it was fantastic, we were treated like Royalty. This time the staff were once...

Excellent location for exploring the city. Public transport is easily accessible and can save you considerably on parking charges. Make sure you check bill thoroughly as reception tried to charge for breakfast we didn't have.

Hotel was very comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. The rooms have been recently updated and provide excellent facilities, although the carpets in the corridors were showing signs of wear. Breakfast choice was good and cooked items lovely and hot.

I chose the best western mainly for the (plentiful) free parking. It's about a 45 mins walk into the city centre. You have to walk through Morningside to get into Edinburgh centre itself. This is a lovely area. Plenty of nice bars and little Bistros. Great hotel. The rooms are fabulous. Highly recommend.

Efficient and pleasant reception. Room small but well appointed. Bar nice. Would not do cocktails after 10pm ! But not end of the world. Good as a base hotel although quite outside city centre not walkable would need transport.
