Satisfactory but not great. We were not informed ahead of our arrival that the Beefeater restaurant attached and used by the hotel for breakfasts was under renovations. This meant that a breakfast packed in a box was offered only and there was no automatic option on site for other meals in the day. Locality is OK, with a Tesco Express... More

Hotel room was quiet, nicely decorated and clean. The bed was really comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful and provided good information about transport. The hotel is on a regularly served bus route into Edinburgh and was really convenient to get to from the A1 - all in all a great stay and let us get on and enjoy the... More

Stayed here for just one night. Room was very clean, didn't have many towels in the room. Just one each and one hand towel. No extra for hair or anything. Room has a kettle with tea and coffee. Quite warm rooms and Windows barely open but they do have fans in each room. Would have given it the highest rating... More

This hotel was easy to find as you are able to get a few different buses from the centre of town (including one night bus). On arrival the staff were super friendly and the room was lovely and clean with basic amenities. However, I was slightly disappointed with being woken up on Saturday morning (after being up for 22hours) to... More

Bedroom was very big, comfort with bathroom a good size. The staff was very polite and helpful. The negative was the bedroom was to far away and the floor turned into a maze but i would recommend this hotel to anybody.

Hotel very handy to town, buses every 10 minutes. Room clean and comfortable. There seems to be an air lock in the pipes of our room as they made a rather loud noise when the taps are used. There needs to be a grab bar in the shower, the bath side is very high and can be slippy getting in.... More

Stayed two nights while visiting family. Friendly helpful staff and good food downstairs in the Beefeater, especially the steak it was beautiful. Bus route right outside with a 30 minute trip to city centre. The room was of good standard with everything you need. The shower was excellent and didn't switch from hot to cold as hotel showers are prone... More

Queen size bed (ie only 3ft 6" wide) not the kingsize hypnose bed advertised or promised in the good night sleep guarantee - wouldn't mind if I'd been told before booking two rooms for two nights. Bed is old and moves everytime one of us rolls over - quite nauseating and not conducive to sleep - hence typing this at... More
