Bought a weekend break package on Ebay for my partner for Christmas and was very pleased with the deal which included chocolates and flowers in the room.
Have stayed at Best Westerns before and they have always been fine - this one was no exception.
The hotel is about 15 minutes from the centre of Edinburgh. We caught buses everywhere - very regular and very cheap and with parking difficult in the city, this is the easiest way to travel. However if you want to be in the centre of things, then this is not the hotel to stay in.
Facilities at the hotel were good with a fair sized swimming pool, jacuzzi and a sauna and steam room available. Changing areas were modern and clean and staff were helpful and friendly. The room itself was fine - we were in the older part of the building and quiet which was a bonus.
We ate in the bistro on the first night and the food was very good. Breakfast was good and plentiful although the layout of the buffet could have been improved - for example, the cereals, fruits, yoghurts etc. were situated at the end of the line where hot foodstuffs were being served. Consequently guest who wanted cereal either had to wait in line with guests wanting a cooked breakfast or otherwise had to jump in to try to get the cereals they wanted. However this was a minor point - all the staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful.
We didn't eat in the main restaurant, spending the second evening in the city with friends. However the food looked good and was reasonably priced for a hotel.
Overall a good, very reasonably priced break. Recommended
