“Good room, average food”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

The room was good and met the expectations of a Marriott room. The food at the bar was average. Drinks were well priced. The location is good for the airport and there is an express bus into town. The closest restaurants are a 15 minute walk away.

As many already mentioned this is a bit out-dated facility but with some pros.

Here the positives:
- Good and friendly service.
- Very good access to city and airport.
- Prices at the bar were cheap.
- Breakfast buffet was ok.
- Room size is ok.

Here the negatives:
- No 24h-room service.
- No fridge in the room.
- Thin walls, you could hear the neighbors.

As for the access to the city I suggest that you buy a daily ticket for £3.50 and take the bus 31 to the city. If you take the bus number 100 (airport express) you get also to the city but there is no daily ticket, therefore much more expensive.
The bus station is just 2 min walk from the hotel.

In general I am recommending this hotel, the positives are outcasting the negatives but to reach the usual high Marriott standard it has to do some major renovations.

Dear Traveller,
I was delighted that overall you recommend our hotel. It was great to read the list of positive items and especially that you rated our good friendly service, thank you! As well as the good access to city and airport and that you were able to share logistic details. We do pride ourselves of a delicious buffet and I hope you managed to sample some of our signature dishes such as Macsween’s haggis, Stornaway black pudding and Stoats porridge.
I also wanted to let you know that we do offer a 24 hour room service menu with some hot and cold dishes that can be enjoyed throughout the night and I am sorry if you missed this. We also have portable fridges on request.
Should you plan a return to visit the hotel please do let me know as we would like to have the opportunity to take great care of you.

Yours sincerely, Angela

I stayed here for a night away with my boyfriend, the hotel isn't too far away from much especially if you drive. the hotel itself was lovely apart from a damp smell from the room we stayed and the price n choice of food, but what do you expect from a 4 star hotel. we also took full advantage of the swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room and gym, you can pay to get spa treatments done as well which I will be doing when I go back there next time. All in all I will definitely be going back there is also an 24/7 casino right across the road. :)

We used the bar for food and drinks only tonight, with a late meal for a party of six after 10pm. Staff were so accommodating, so friendly, very polite, and exceptionally helpful.

The food was great, portions were huge and they even provided a doggy bag for food that couldn't be eaten - literally for the dog!!!

We took a birthday cake and the staff were so helpful by hiding it, preparing it, lighting candles and bringing it to the table. Not pre-planned with staff. They were great.

The bar area is a great space with great atmosphere.

Thank you Marriott for being so accommodating of our late meal and requests.

Been before this and will return time and time again going forward.

We stayed for 2 nights midweek, the staff were helpful & friendly, room was spotless & had everything u would expect for a comftable stay. The hotel is about a 20 min car journey from the city centre, so getting taxis could be expensive, we made use of the excellent public transport with buses stopping just outside thehotel every 5-10 mins. £1.50 for any journey or £3.50 for an all day ticket. Would stop here again next time I visit.

We arrived at the Marriott Edinburgh after receiving some bad news. The staff were very accommodating. We ended up having Room service for tea and were happy with the choices available to us.
Lovely hotel and would definitely stay there again.
