                Very helpful and courteous staff and a great location for us.

                We didn't think much of the breakfast, rubbery poached and fried eggs!!!

                4.2

                Hotel management and staff lovely - warm welcoming and friendly.Breakfast was fine. Bar staff accomodating.However : Single room and bed very small. Difficult to reach wardrobe and kettle/tea making facilities not conveniently sited for ease of use. No lift. In room TV could only get BBC channels. Poor sound insulation and very noisy early morning [6am]with people checking out and humbing large suitcases down the stairs. The saniflow toilet system was noisy and randomly set itself off which was disturbing. It was very far out of the centre and away from the EICC. .

                The gardens were really nice and the bar menu was good

                Last minute booking so I did not expect too much but for 65 pounds I expected much more having stayed in many bb and hotels in Edinburgh before - the room was tiny hot and stuffy with no fan or air con - it wou,d have been cold in winter - the tv stations were not tuned in ( dont think they have done the digital retuning) there was one tea bag and no tissues. I left early before Breakfast and met the porter who nodded but did not ask me if I wanted anything given that time

                The service in restaurant was slow! A member of staff was very rude and un helpful, the cooked breakfasts were tiny portions! The shower in the room had a button missing and the water was freezing cold then burning hot no control over it! Not worth the money paid and wouldn't stay there again

              • Single
                7.4

                The hotel staff were efficient and courteous. The response of the hotel to organising extra services such as transport was mosr helpful.

                The room looked a little tired in terms of decoration and was certainly a "small" single with the shower room a bit of challenge to manoeuvre in for the larger guest.

                The triple room is too small, it is really expensive.

                8.2

                The room we were allocated was newly refurbished and very spacious as was the bathroom. Very peaceful area.Also on the plus side there was a hotel bar.

                The bar could have done with more real ales

              • Older travelers
                4.6

                the location was ok it was near to the function we where attending

                the hotel on the outside looks very plesant. the room we were allocated was on the ground floor which was spacious disable twin room my request was for a double room and unfortunely the room was very cold the complimentary tray had next to nothing on the breakfast staff were disorganized.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were friendly and polite on all occasions

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                Location was good for our requirements. Nice big room and lovely breakfast.

                Only downside was the bathroom was not good enough. Scratched/cracked basin, towel rail hanging out of wall and no blind (only transparent netting) at window to protect modesty while in bathroom. Also, when we arrived, felt the receptionist/manager barely spoke to us. When I welcome somebody to my work place, I smile at them and make small talk whilst processing payments etc, but felt bit awkward whilst waiting for admin side to be carried out. Although, when we asked for a different room as we had been given twin instead of double, she couldnt' have been nicer. Overall, pleasant stay.

                room was large and nice. staff were very helpful and kind.

                location only, otherwise wveruthing was ok

                7.8

                this is a very laid back friendly hotel offering good value for money.The meals were quite good and quite fairly priced. The location is a away from shopping areas, but on the plus side there is free parking.

                This service was a little on the slow side
