“Superb stay”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We have just returned from a three night stay.we were in a Deluxe double double as we are a Mum.Dad and 18 year old.the room was a great size but bathroom a little small but spotless clean.we were bed and breakfast and the breakfast was a buffet style with a chef doing eggs to order,a good choice of fruit juice,cereal and fruit melon pastries etc.
We ate in Chats lounge which could really be a bit bigger as seats ltd.the food good but quite pricey for bar food.
We visited the Zoo and took a taxi from the Hotel then the bus into town and back it stops right outside the hotel would recommend this as parking in town not a great idea.
All staff were very helpful and seemed happy to be working there keep it up as a great advert for a big hotel chain.

Stayed 2 nights here. The staff were very friendly. Room and bathroom were spacious, clean, and comfortable. Not in the best location in terms of shopping/downtown Edinburgh but easily accessible. Close to airport. Breakfast selection and quality very good.

I am not quite sure why this hotel does not seem to quite make it. It is a good location - near the airport and on the fast bus routes into the centre, near a shopping centre, large free car park and so on. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are reasonable, though the very low ceilings make them feel pokier than they are. Showers were strong. However the food is pretty basic in both the "restaurant" and the business lounge. We left feeling satisfied but slightly unimpressed.

After spending a great time further north in Scotland we booked in to Marriott for 2 nights, it was great from the moment we arrived until we left. The staff were amazing. The breakfasts were excellent and the staff again were helpful in finding us a table with wheelchair access. We stayed 1 night last year so were really looking forward to our stay this year and if going to Edinburgh again would not hesitate to stay again.

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the end of a corridor for less noise.

I would go back to this hotel just for the staff, lovely smiling faces, nothing is too much trouble. I had a problem with my TV which was sorted in minutes and they couldn't apologise enough for the inconvenience. Food was lovely and the hotel is very near the airport. Would definitely recommend. Didn't pay the room bill myself so not sure on price.

Not a great experience.
First problem is finding out how a car travelling East into Edinburgh is meant to turn right into the car-park.

Hotel reception took an impression of our Plastic Card for “extras” Unfortunately we and others in our party discovered on leaving that had also been charged for a pre-paid room that had been booked through a reputable hotel agency. The hotel, when challenged, said that they were a large international hotel group not in the habit of ripping off the customers. Think again. They knew the rooms were booked through an agency but not all staff at reception have a good command of the English language.
Carefully check your account.

Breakfast, at £15.50, was mediocre and well below par for the hotel rating.
Getting a good night’s sleep is virtually impossible due to the high number of boisterous residents who arrive from, or are heading off to Edinburgh Airport at all hours of the day and night.
The ice machine, advertised as being located on the ground floor of the North Wing must have melted because it was nowhere to be found.

An advantage is that the hotel is adjacent to bus stops with a regular service into Edinburgh and it is also on the express bus routes to Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow and other major central belt towns.

Room Tip: Get one at the very far end of the corridor

A typical Marriott wth the standards that you expect from them but the location is excellent. It is a short trip to the airport and short bus ride into town, with the bus stop practically at the front door. the beakfast is good with an early cold breakfast if you have an early flight. We would stay here again when we return to Edinburgh.
