“Great Hotel, Great Value”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I stay in this hotel regularly (once per month). Although it is not located in the centre of Edinburgh, it is located next to the Edinburgh City Bypass, close to the airport and is right next to Edinburgh Park train station with very frequent trains into the city (takes less than 10 mins). The hotel is of a very high standard, restaurant food is lovely, good swimming pool. Rooms are typical Novotel - very clean, high standard of comfort. Staff are helpful and there is ample free car parking (a rarity in Edinburgh). The only downside is that there are no restaurants or pubs nearby.

Room Tip: Have stayed in this hotel at least 20 times. All rooms are of a consistently good standard. Not all...

Second time we've stayed at this hotel and it didn't disapoint. The staff are very helpful and friendly, the rooms clean and practical and the pool is excellent. The only downside I would say is the bar prices, which might have done us a favour as we drank less than normal!! There is now a KFC next door which was great as our kids didn't fancy anything off the hotel menu. Just a short hop into central Edinburgh and kids travell free at weekends. Finally there's a Tesco nearby which is also helpfull when you've got a young family with you.

We left the car at the hotel and used the train to get to the city centre. The station is an easy 5 minutes walk. In town the daily bus pass is good value and we spent hours on various routes.
The hotel food was average; breakfast perfectly adequate.

I found a good deal with breakfast included for a city break. There is another Novotel more central in Edinburgh but the prices are higher.
We had dinner in the restaurant. The food was good but not spectacular and the price obviously of a 4*.
The breakfast was continental but not too many choices, basically a sort of English breakfast, some cereals, yogurt and juice. The bacon and sausages were dry probably cooked well in advance. If you like coffee ask for an espresso, its included.
There is a train station just 3 minutes walk from the hotel. You only have 2 stops to the city center.
The staff was friendly.
The room was clean, as per usual Novotel standard, nothing to complain about. However I would not expect less from them.
The downside of this hotel is that you need to pay for Wi-fi access.
We had a problem with the sink and they fixed it the next day as per my request. The tiles in our bathroom were not looking great but nothing to spoil your holiday.
The car park is free, there is a hotel's car park.

Room Tip: ask for the rooms which are not facing the railway

Stayed here to break up the journey before onwards travel up further into Scotland. Ideally located just off the Edinburgh Ring Road. A couple of hiccups about the stay - 1. Postcode given sent us to the wrong side of the train line so had to get back onto the ring road and go around (to be fair could be the satnav so can't really blame the hotel) and 2. Krispy Kreme donuts had just opened up next door so people were queuing for hours to get into it meaning the traffic was a nightmare. Had to do some 'adventurous' driving to get around the traffic but all sorted in the end (again not the fault of the hotel).

The key programming machine was broken when we arrived but the hotel dealt with this problem effectively and sent someone up with us to let us into our room and returned a few minutes later with the key cards.

Swimming pool was nice but they really could do with more changing facilities. On leaving the pool people were using the showers as changing cubicles meaning you had to wait again as there weren't enough actual changing cubicles.

Had breakfast in the hotel which was excellent with a wide choice. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Room was clean, tidy and modern and they had already made up my daughters bed for us when we arrived and thank you for the toys you let her choose on check in. Loved the digital shower controls - his, hers and group setting! lol.

Overall a very nice stay and would stay again.

Clean, new hotel, located a few miles from the town centre, not easy to find due to current road-works.
Good quality meals for lunch and dinner. Opposite a brand new Krispy Kreme store.
Plenty of parking
