“PERFECT POSITION”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

If you are going to Edinburgh for a short break, then look no further than the kings Manor Hotel. Although it is a 3 star hotel, it has everything you require and in my opinion should be a four star. The position of this hotel could not be better, you just park your car then leave it for your entire stay and then use the excellent bus service (stop right outside the hotel) that Edinburgh has that makes Manchester buses look inferior and expensive The staff are very friendly, the bedrooms clean and spacious and the pool/spa facilities are superb. We did not eat in the restaurant at night, but the breakfast was very good and plenty of choice. The hotel even left an anniversary card in our room, which I thought was a nice touch and would not hesitate to book into this hotel again in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms at back of hotel will be quieter but we were on the 3rd floor and had a four poster bed!

Wanted a hotel in the Edinburgh area to allow touring. This came up when we searched, and the reviews were so good we felt we had to give it a go. Having enjoyed three nights there, we cannot complain. The room was excellent, the food in the Bistro was excellent, and we also had excellent food in Lauder's Restaurant. Staff were friendly and attentive, and the general décor of the whole interior was of a high standard.

Thank you for posting such a positive review. Its a pity we didn’t get your food order correctly first time, that would have been better for all concerned but at least we managed to get it right- eventually- and be pleasant about it!

My friend and I booked a few days here with 2 spa treatments each as a birthday treat. Staff very friendly. Rooms clean and spacious and even had playstations in them and hotel had left a birthday card for each of us in our rooms that had been signed individually by each member of staff - lovely touch. Everything you needed was in the room: toiletries, hairdryer, iron, ironing board, flatscreen TV, modern décor and huge comfortable beds. Breakfast was excellent - once shown to your table, you could help yourself to as much or as little as you wanted with food being hot and tasty. Tea, coffee and toast was served immediately to you on arrival at your table. The Bar area was retro-style and had a good ambience as well as having sports TV. Bistro had a good choice and food was excellent. On having spa treatments you were given a 10% discount voucher to use in the Bar/Bistro. There was a restaurant on site but we ran out of time to try this out but I'm sure the standard of the food would have been as good if not better than the rest of the hotel. Bus stops right outside hotel to take you into centre of Edinburgh so hotel a great base for travelling either by car or public transport as Brunstane Railway station only 5-10 mins walk away. Portobello beach a few minutes walk away too. Can't wait until my next spa break to go back.

Thank you for posting such a positive view of your spa break. We are delighted that you enjoyed it. Our balcony health and beauty studios are a great asset to the hotel. Although as they are so busy it is essential that you pre book any treatments.

Upon on arrival we received a free upgrade to a bigger room that was near a fire door that opened to a grassed area for the dogs. Room was clean, spacious, modern and warm. The bathroom was lovely too. The bed was huge and very comfy.
The young girl on reception is friendly, helpful and knowledgable. All the receptionist were very plesent.
Breakfast was ok. Choice was ok too. The first morning the service was very good. The second day we had to get the server from the first day to complete our order. Pot luck I guess.
We ate one night in the bistro. I wouldn't recommend eating there unless you have to. The food was ok except they try to pass off butter coated in nuts as goats cheese. Or mains were very average. I'd suggest I walk to Portobello high street. Saying this though, the waiter was friendly.
The spa was adequate.
Good links into town but make sure you have the correct change. £3 for two adults.

Thank you for posting your review. I am delighted that you found the room to your satisfactory. I am disappointed that you describe our Goats Cheese and Red Onion Relish as Butter coated in Nuts. It has been a popular item on our menu for a long time and we have never had any issues with it. It would have been good to have found our more about this item in case the was an issue with our supplier.
