After being quoted crazy prices for hotels in central Edinburgh for our Saturday night stay, we opted for the Novotel Edinburgh Park. What a brilliant choice it turned out to be! Check-in was efficient, our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean and without exception all the staff we encountered were professional, cheerful and helpful. There is plenty of free parking at the hotel (with CCTV coverage) and direct train access to central Edinburgh (10 minutes to Waverley Station) is only a couple of minutes walk away. A late night taxi back from central Edinburgh (the Royal Mile) cost £17. Breakfast on the Sunday morning was good with plenty of choice and no need to wait for a table.
All in all a great choice and terrific value for a short break in Edinburgh.More
