                            Convenient, easy to get to and for parking, and great for the zoo next door.

                            Very convenient for Heriot-Watt University where I was attending a conference

                            Availability of car parking and access to buses into the centre of edinburgh were excellent. The attached Sampan Restaurant was very good.

                            Our hotel room was spartan and small with a compelling view of the roof.

                            Good reception and oriental restaurant staff. Gym and pool. Great breakfast.

                            Not-nice room this time. Stale cigarette odour in room and Zst floor corridor.

                            overall the room we had was okay

                            The staff there were rude! They have mixed up with the payment for the bill (which we have pre-paid about two months ago!!) and they just assumed that we didnt pay.

                            Next to zoo

                            Leaking toilet, despite repair during the night it still leaked was not pleasant

                            Resteraunts within hotel were excellent

                            The bath mats were old and the back of them were not properly clean, a bit disappointed with the size of the bath

                            Choice at breakfast was nice, room very clean and comfortable

                            There should be free wireless internet for the cost of the room. £5 or £6 per hour is completely outrageous, and a deterrent for staying here again.

                            Even room is old, It is enought to stay.

                            Internet access is only WIFI, even it is equipped with cable access according to this site. Surrounding this hotel, there is only zoo. It is not quite convinient to buy some small items. The room does not equipe with mini bar.

                            Nothing to add here

                            I did not like the fact that the cleaner entered our room twice whilst we were still in bed, yes we maybe should have used the do not disturb card but we were only staying one night and were to vacate by 12pm the following day surely the hotel staff knew that our room would be empty to be cleaned at that point, I found that we could not relax incase the cleaner entered a third time so we packed up and checked out. I think this should be noted for future use

                            Services available. Staff very welcoming and served you with a smile. Bedroom just what we wanted. Very convenient location for our purposes.

                            Reported faulty plug in the wash basin. Not attended to whilst we were there. As we could leave it "open" it did not inconvenience us or spoil our stay.

                            Dimensions of the room---politeness of the staff member---quality of the food in the lounge/bar

                            Not enough parking spaces --- chinese restaurant don't open until 6 pm so I have to eat in the lounge/bar(which then was good, see above)

                            It was a very good location. The bus stop was right outside the door you could jump on any bus to any destination which was very covienient. The rooms were exellent catered for your every need. Definatly stay there again if visiting Edinburgh.

                            i did not like the fact that even a basic breakfast was not inclusive for the price we payed .....high....for our two day stay most hotel in that area do when we actually had food in the hotel an evening meal the food was verypoor ,my steak was un eatable and the overall standard the worst i have had for a long time i might add certainly not to be recommended other people i spoke to in conversation also had no endearments to add to .........standard v poor for a city holiday inn.
