We stayed at the Ardmillan Hotel on Saturday 10th September. We paid £75 on a room only basis. This was an extremely good price for a Saturday night in the Haymarket area of Edinburgh. Other accommodations of similar facilities in the city were in the region of £140. I booked the room about 10 days before with booking.com. A taxi from the city centre to the hotel at 2am on Sunday morning only cost £5.30.
This is a small family hotel with around 9 bedrooms. We were in room 2 which had a double and single bed. The white linen and towels were spotless. There was a built in wardrobe with lots of coat hangers. There was a small television on the wall and unlike some hotels all the channels were there and with good reception. There was also a radio alarm clock and hairdryer. The room was bright and spacious and the view was overlooking the back of other buildings in the area. This was probably a bonus as some rooms will overlook the road so it was very quiet.
The tea and coffee tray was well stocked with tea, coffee, milk etc. There was also a plentiful supply of biscuits and a dish of mints.
There was no bath only a shower cubicle in the bright ensuite. Toiletries were supplied.
Breakfast could be purchased for £7.95 served until 9.30am but as check out was at 11am we decided not to bother and stay in bed as late as possible as we knew we were going to have a late night. Breakfast had to be requested the evening before which makes sense as probably most visitors use the hotel for the same reason as we did and don’t get up in time for breakfast.
There is a small traditional pub in the hotel with friendly staff and is used by locals so could be noisy as a previous reviewer mentioned, especially if you are an early bedder.
Overall we had a great stay and wouldn’t hesitate to use this hotel again.
