Recently stayed one night in this small(ish) Portman hotel in Clermiston Road, above Corstorphine Main Street. Only one side of the road is built up - the side that the hotel is on - the other is woodland. Hotel is on a bus route, easy for taxis and also very simple to find with a private car.
We had a large modern en-suite room on a good rate. There were twin beds, all the things you would expect from a good hotel, tea, coffee, with lots of hot water and clean towels.
Our room was very clean, tidy and comfortable, as was the bathroom.
Noticed that some more luxury items were available on an upgrade basis for an additional £20.
Our room was on the road-side of the hotel, which was rather noisy with the windows open and on a future occasion, would ask for a room at the rear of the hotel. There was no air conditioning at the hotel, so it was necessary to have the windows open and hence the traffic noise.
The breakfast was superb, with a huge buffet selection and was most enjoyable. Dominika was extremely helpful in providing a table for four persons, at short notice.
Adele was extremely welcoming and helpful at check-in and check-out and everything was accomplished very smoothly. In fact, we found all the staff we had contact with, very friendly and helpful.
The hotel has a large car park on three sides of the hotel, with a fitness centre accessible from the rear of the hotel, as well as through the hotel itself.
We did not use the spa but it certainly looked very well equipped, as did the pool.
