We had a really lovely greeting and the room was clean enough. It was small but we didn't mind that. The complaints of others are echoed by us too, the toilet seat was loose, the shower leaked water and the head was split. The bed was hard, the room was boiling we had both windows open all night and didn't...

Where to start. From the dated decoration, small double bed with access only from one side, and uncomfortable mattress.which made access difficult,; tiny sink, that took ages to drain; loose loo seat, split shower head, and no saucers for the tea cups. Kettle wouldn't fit under the sink tap. Etc., etc. This was in contrast to the city which we...

We stayed for one night through July. Room was tiny and the wall slopes. Hit my knee on it in the night and it hurt throughout the day. Area in which the hotel (more like a hostel) wasn't the best area to stay, was on the edge of what looked like a council estate. Whole hotel smelt like curry which...

Not having been to Edinburgh previously, my belated birthday present from my Fiancé was to have a City Break there. I highly recommend Edinburgh itself, great people, lovely city, travelled around as well (Dunfermline is also recommended), historically interesting, great places to eat. etc. However, although I knew it would be a budget place, and wasn't expecting a Palace, we...

Small place but never ran into any other guests. Staff were more than happy to help, very friendly. Excellent location just a walk into town. Take away nearby was convenient and good quality, area was also safe to walk back to late after dinner at a pub in city Centre. Clean, awesome shower/bathroom. Room was a bit squish but that...

Although bedroom 4 is adequate size ,it is in quite a sorry state. I admit it was cheap ,but that did not excuse the bed that was so hard it made my hip bones sore by morning. On top of that there was a loud, and very regular knocking sound coming from water pipes/ central heating that kept me awake...

Rooms are small, but clean, and have a great shower! The people running it are not very friendly or welcoming, and the place could do with a few air fresheners. We never bothered with the breakfast, so I can't really comment on it, but it did just look like cereal and toast, so I wouldn't pay extra for it. It...
