Best Western Kings Manor Hotel

Average best western hotel located at Kings Manor. Room was big enough with a comfortable bed but soundproofing was not very good. A bit outside of the city centre, but located right next to a bus stop with regular buses going to town.

I must confess to being a bit disappointed by being assessed as an ‘average’ Best Western Hotel.
Our most recent Best Western customer feedback report puts us firmly in the top 10% of Best Western hotels in the country and your fellow trip advisor reviewers rate us in the top 15% of Edinburgh hotels,. Including many 4 and 5 star properties. I note that your last stay was nearly a year ago, maybe on your next stay we can prove to be better than average.

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay. Special dog friendly room was spacious and luxurious for the price and there is a good green space at the back for short walks. Poppy the dog has diabetes and there was no problem providing a fridge for her insulin. Staff always helpful and friendly. A somewhat anonymous location completely compensated for by easy access on foot to Portobello beach and other great walks on the John Muir trail. As mentioned by others, great bus service to Edinburgh though we walked it one day via Holyrood Park and Arthur's seat and it didn't take very long. We had no need to use the car once on our stay. Excellent good sized swimming pool and steam room which we used twice daily. Breakfast and service very good when we filled up adequately for our energetic days. As there are no other eating establishments near by and we had Poppy, in the evenings we ate at the hotel restaurant and bistro and had room service one night which is something we wouldn't usually do. Food, without being special, was fine and reasonable value. Good self controlling heating system in room, very quiet and slept like logs. Would definitely visit again if in Edinburgh .

Thank you for your kind comments following your recent stay , we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us (and Poppy). We have always welcomed dogs to the hotel but recently , thanks to a staff initiative, we are looking to make our canine guests even more welcome. I was interested to hear that you walked into the city, certainly via Holyrood Park or using the dedicated cycle way it is a pleasant trip and not as far as you may think, you can always get the bus back!

The restaurant had dishes marked as coeliac friendly and were able to prepare a special dish for one of the children. Kids loved the swimming pool and was very impressed with the committment to the environment. Most of all was impressed with the fantastic staff. Very handy being beside no.44 bus route.

Had a very pleasant stay during the Calcutta Cup weekend and enjoyed walking around Edinburgh apart from the roadworks! Don't get a taxi into town, there is bus stop outside and it costs only £1.30

Glad you enjoyed your stay , particularly the ‘free gift’ at the start of the second half. Roadworks are going to end sometime – so they tell us! Luckily with the bus service running past our gate you don’t need to touch your car at all during your stay.

We spent 3 nights here, and had a great experience. The rooms were largish by UK standards, and the whole hotel was extremely clean. Dinners in the bistro and breakfast in the restaurant were fantastic. Add to that the quality of customer service, and it certainly gets the thumbs up. While not in the centre of Edinburgh, it was great for car parking, and centrally located for what we wanted to do. Wouldn't hesitate to go back!

Stay here often. Rooms are nice and modern and I have had free upgrade more often than not. Restaurant has great food if you don't fancy the trip into town and the bar seems to be used by the locals as well ( must be good ) . Don't forget your swim wear, huge pool with sauna and steam room. Make sure you get the breakfast deal, its the best in town.

Thank you for your kind comments. Its nice to get comments from regular guests as well as those staying only occasionally. I hope that you are enjoying the new Lauders Restaurant menu and its new ‘Tapas’ innovation . anyone staying with us must find time to use the leisure club , it’s the second largest hotel pool in the city. Our balcony beauty therapy centre has been moved for a couple of weeks taking over a few bedrooms temporarily, but it is due to open next week- and its looking good! Maybe you can make use of that facility on your next visit, we hope to have some promotional re opening offers available.
