The Corstorphine Lodge Hotel

Reviewed May 15, 2009

Great attention! We walked very much because we got confussed in the airport bus stop. Its almost best walking from the airport, around 10 blocks. And they gave us a great room, very big, with two beds, bathroom inside, bussiness desk and chimney. All was great! A bus stop almost in front of the hotel, that takes you directly to down town. Good residencial area and bussiness zone. At breakfast everything very clean.

We had a wonderful weekend with friends in Edinburgh and stay at the Corstorphine Lodge for 3 nights. The staff are friendly and very helpful and served freshly cooked breakfast. We would certainly recommend you to stay at this hotel - it is very handy for the airport - 5-10 mins drive/bus and about 15 mins drive/bus to the city centre. It was also excellent value for money. We checked with a number of other hotels in the area and they were all charging ridiculously high prices.

How can this hotel have three stars? It has tacky, cheap furniture, lots of tasteless ornaments, heavily patterned carpets. Our room had a boiler and controls for the building's central heating in it. We were told that to have breakfast you we would have to be up by 9am on an Easter Sunday morning. Having read the other reviews I am glad we missed it.

If you like a good nights sleep then avoid this hotel like the plague.....

Here are some thought about my room.

old furniture
flowery 1970's decor
cramped
old threadbear carpet
clean, but cheaply decorated from charity shops
sash windows rattled
no lock on the bedroom door

But best of all the loudest door bell that even with earplugs woke me up numerous times from 11.00pm until 1.45 am when the last unfortunate person staying arrived back.

How does the owner think that having "BIG BEN" as a door bell won't keep your guests awake.

All the guests at breakfast looked sleep deprived. I particularily pittied the americans that probably thought this was typical of B&B's in the city.........

My breakfast was also pretty poor - dried bacon and pretty unfortunate looking egg. I managed half then left it.
The seat I was sitting on seemed to have stains on it that looked vaguely pizza like. Most delightful.......

To add inult to injury, we had to check out early due to family ilness. We had a struggle to get any of our bill reduced. This seemed like very sharp business practice as the rooms could be re let the same day.

My final advice is the outside looks good, but the inside is cheap.

Avoid.................

Corstorphine Lodge Hotel appears to be two Victorian/Edwardian houses joined together and located on a main road into Edinburgh. We did not book in advance and were looking for 2 nights accommodation reasonably close to the City with off road car parking space.

We paid £70 per night for a large, shabby double room and breakfast. Carpets and decoration throughout were clean although everything had obviously been done as cheaply as possible and the furniture and beds were probably "junk shop finds". We had two double beds in our room but one of them collapsed as soon as it was sat on because the spring was not secured to the frame. The bathroom was not properly finished off and had tiles missing from the floor.

Two young (probably eastern european) girls were in charge of the breakfast and although they were very pleasant, what they produced was not worth eating.

Location is excellent as there are easy bus links to the City centre from just outside the hotel and a day pass to ride on them costs just £2.50 per person.

The location is on the main road, miles out of central Edinburgh with few tourist amenities nearby - theres a big Tesco and a MacDonalds a minute's walk away.

The rooms are big, though dilapidated with aged (rather than antique) furniture. The quality of the decor is very low - our bathroom had tiles missing from the floor (covered with a doily style blanket). The staff don't seem to care about maintenance - none of the lamps in our room had lightbulbs in them, the bathroom light didn't work (had to use the shaving light) and none of the wall-lights in the bedroom worked. When we asked for this to be fixed the single staff member left in the hotel in the evening said she couldn't do it but would get it done the next day...which never happened. The mattresses are so saggy and uncomfortable that one of the people we were travelling with had to sleep at 90 degrees across the foot of the bed. The hand soap in the bathroom was a giant (half empty) "tesco value" dispenser.

The breakfast was appalling. Croisants were dry and rubbery - not improved when I asked the waitress if she could warm them in the oven and she microwaved them. The cooked breakfast was disgusting - when we complained to the manager he said it was because we were late down to breakfast (punctual at 8:45 - you have to book an exact time the night before) and the sausages and bacon had been in the oven since 6am at 100 degrees! This complaint (and the raft of others) got us a staggering £4 discount off one night's bill.

The staff, whilst friendly and mostly helpful, are Eastern European and speak little English.

When we arrived one member of our party was told that she'd been upgraded from a single to double room. When we checked out they tried to charge her extra for this.

At £80 per night this is a rip-off and there are much nicer hotels in the centre of Edinburgh.
