The hotel is conveniently just off the A1 to the east of Edinburgh but a little too far from the city centre, though there is a very big retail park with cinema and eateries within walking distance. If you stay here you will ned to drive or bus into the city.

Stayed out of Edinburgh city centre, and managed to avoid the obscene price gouging going on in city-centre hotels. The hotel is very well located, on the ring road, and directly across the road from the railway station, with a 10 minute journey into the centre. The room we had faced out of the back of the hotel, and we... More

Stayed for 1 night during Edinburgh Festival. Lovely clean room and bathroom. Very comfortable beds, we were in a triple room. Staff welcoming and helpful. Good value accommodation. Easy to get into Edinburgh on the train, the station is just across the road. We did not hear any road or rail noise from our room. Would return.

One of the main potential features of this Premier Inn is its location opposite Newcraighall railway station, which is just 11 minutes from the city center. Unfortunately, the quality and reliability of the train service into Edinburgh Waverley reduces the appeal of the location - four journeys into Edinburgh on separate days saw a badly handled morning of cancellations and...

Stayed here as a last minute trip for the Edinburgh fringe, all the centre hotels were very expensive so booked this hotel. Transport to the centre was easy with the train station right by the hotel, and the bus stop right beside the hotel car park.
