we arrived to find the hotel boarded up and lights off. We phoned Hotels.com to help us find other accomodation. 3 hours later still nothing - no call back, no other options and 5 days later no money back. we were about to find a basement floor of a bar to sleep on when a late BB was found on...

Location is out of the central area by about 2kms, but it is just down the road from Leith and harbour area. There is a bus service that runs right past the accommodation. No off street parking and parking is quite difficult. Their advert says "free parking", but that means there is no charge when parking on street. The room... More

Please note this hotel is a scam. I had arranged on 7th September for accommodation for 1 night on a work trip. The cutoff time is 8pm. I arrived at 7:30pm to find a very irate australian who had been waiting since 7pm for some-one to let him in. There was no-one in reception. It was a building site. The... More

I'm not sure if this will be allowed as we didn't stay at this property. We are very close neighbours to Capital Residence and have now had to deal with guests stopping us in the street asking for help a number of times now. It's consistently the same problem; they cannot gain access to the hotel after booking. On one... More

We reserved a room at this place through the internet. As some others mentioned, the reports looked fairly good. This is the first ever review that I have made with such a low rating. First, the two caretakers were nice enough and helpful in explaining the problems encountered but never-the-less the problems still existed. The building and the rooms were... More

When I booked this hotel some time ago, the reviews were generally positive. I had another look just before we were due to stay and it appears that standards may have slipped a bit recently. So I was a bit concerned about what we might encounter. Fortunately, we didn't experience any of the significant issues that other guests have encountered... More

No sign of the promised slippers or garden view. Boutique feel of hotel left a lot to be desired. We got placed in the basement room with view out to front yard - this could have been pretty but had been left to go tatty - needs some whitewash, hanging baskets, etc. People in the street could easily look down...

This was 29th November 2014. In fairness it was 1500 on the day of arrival that we booked (through agoda) and arrived at 1730 for a last minute weekend away, however when we arrived there was nobody there to greet us and no answer on any of the contact numbers we were given. We waited for an hour before giving... More
