“Great base”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

3 days, 2 nights in the cheapest option available.
2 adults, 2 kids.
The location from the centre is broken up by the Train journey, which firstly breaks up the day and kids love trains. Kids travel free as well.
Rooms OK, clean and modern.
Had dinner here too and the food is brilliant. Took quiet a while with only a few peaople dinning and it was worth the wait. The Aberdeen Burger was great. Kids eat 1/2 price as well.
Swimming pool modern. Free internet in the Lobby too.
Shopping centre/retail park across the road and would mention Decathlon if you haven't got one by you for sports gear.
Cost us £8 to the Zoo. By the way The Pandas sleep 16 hours a day so if you are visiting The Zoo so be prepared to look at a ball of fluff!
We have stayed at the Holiday Inn next to the Zoo before and chose this as somewhere different to stay and price!
The Hotel is a great base to explore Edinburgh and i would recommend this Hotel to anyone. The daily train in to the centre breaks the day up and takes 7 minutes and is fun too.

I booked this hotel using aclub vouchers as I stay with Mercure Hotels a lot, we received a 50% off offer - if I would have paid full price and had no vouchers I would have certainly complained and tried to move hotels. Good points: hotel right next to train station that takes you into Edinburgh for around 3 pounds each return, nice staff, nice pool area, quiet corridors... bad points: nothing around the area not even a pub/restaurant to walk to (industrial area), railway track and main rd next to hotel, noisey when you open window, temperature control in room is very bad, rooms are very hot and you can only set temperature by 1 or 2 degrees either way, bar area was very dirty and chairs were passed their best all velvet had gone bald on ALL chairs, our bathroom was half painted (1st coat) and shower screen was moldy, kids play area was a table and set of wooden blocks, second days housekeeping was done at 5pm when we had returned to room to relax after a day out...overall I would think this is fine for a business trip but for weekend away or holiday I would go elsewhere..

stayed at the novotel ,edinburgh park for a week in aug 2012,fast, easy check in ,got to my room which was modern but the heat eminating from somewhere was almost un bearable, there was no air con in the room ,only a temp controller to keep the room at a certain temperature(which didnt seem to work),opened the window only for the tv to be drowned out by railway engineering works,right next to the hotel.Asked reception for a fan which i only switched off at bed time.Speaking to another guest he complained of the same thing and said the novotel in bristol was exactly the same,apart from this and being charged or services i didnt use ( which were removed)its a nice hotel,food and drink a bit pricey,but only two train stops away from edinburgh waverley station (edingburgh park station is 5 mins walk away) £2.90 return, overall 5 out of 10 rating nb. dont use the post code on the website you,ll be driving around for hours ,trying to find the hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a room as far away from the train line as possible

After enjoying a stay at another Novotel we were disappointed with how this one turned out. There were good things: The location is not special, but close driving distance to the sites. The restaurant is ok, with excellent staff. We enjoyed the pool & steam room with their longer hours. The "play area" was nothing but a couple of books. My kids didn't even notice it. We were not given towels once when we indicated. My husband called down the request. 30 min later he went down to remind & let them know we needed to give our kids a bath soon. He was greeted with disbelief but was told her colleague must be too busy to get to us. He insisted & we were given the towels by a grumpy or annoyed employee. No one ever bothered to apologise. The room was uncomfortably warm throughout the stay. The window didn't open wide enough to make much difference. The limited climate control kept resetting itself. We just wish their automatic temp they maintained was a couple degrees lower. A cleaning cloth was left in our room twice. The shower control didn't work right & was a little frustrating to deal with. We currently have an unexplained charge as well, which we'll have to get resolved.

We went here for our anniversary. we checked in as early as we could. To find that the room did not have a air conditioning working and it did not have a bath. We asked to get changed to a different room but after waiting half an hour they could not change room.
Next time I go Edinburgh I will be staying across the road at the premier inn

The hotel is located at the end of the M8, near a railway station for easy access to Edinbrugh city centre and not far from the airport. The room was fine with plenty of space but very hot especially during the night and we were unable to rectify this. We were somewhat disappointed with this particular Novotel after recently staying in one near Heathrow Airport which was excellent. The ambience of this hotel was not as welcoming as Heathrow and we would not particulary choose to stay again. However the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel if you don't want the noise of the trains that run at t...
