We chose this Premier Inn due to its location - a two minutes’ walk from the hotel to the tram & train station in order to travel into Edinburgh – about 15 minutes. The hotel is two years old, has a very good standard of accommodation and staff are positive, customer service focussed and friendly. Hotel was easy to find and the large car park is free. The hotel is on a business & shopping park and is therefore quiet without passing traffic or noise. Excellent value for money.
Automated check in was easy & quick. Room preferences were met (4th floor away from railway station end of hotel for quietness). The restaurant is good. Breakfast was excellent - probably one the best we have enjoyed in any hotel and we travel extensively. The 'meal deal' is great value. Dinner was very good on two of our three nights. Unfortunately, one dish - the 'steak' choice was poor but we were quickly offered an excellent alternative.
The only reason for not awarding this hotel full marks is that we had asked for a twin bedded room. Given that 'twin' means - something containing or consisting of two matching or corresponding parts - we were disappointed to find on check in that the room comprised a double / king bed (which was extremely comfortable!!) and a sofa bed, which albeit being a full size single bed, was not particularly comfortable nor conducive to sleep quality, especially for an adult. Staff were understanding, but did not offer an alternative and explained that this was Premier Inn's standard 'twin' offering.
We would definitely book with Premier Inn again, including this hotel, but if you want two full size beds, you would need two rooms.
Overall, very good hotel, good location, good quality rooms & food but beware of Premier Inn’s ‘twin bed' definition!
