      • Lovely views in some of the rooms over Edinburgh and well connected to the city by Lothian bus routes. Hotel was clean & and house keeping staff were superb. Service was generally good and bed was huge.

        Dangerous fittings in the bathroom.

      • Good distance from airport and the bus took 20 minutes and was clean. Hotel staff were friendly and and the price was brilliant online. ‎room service was also very prompt and room was excellent.

        Poor location, freezing showers and breakfast was a bit boring. Gym was small and tired.

      • Good location clean reasonable price friendly staff and comfortable Bus stop just around the corner and were always ontime. The hotel was very modern, reception desk was always polite and efficient, the beds were excellent and the room spacious. Breakfast was delicious and leisure facilities were good, nice pool.

        Potentially pleasant night view from restaurant ruined by security lights glaring in and decor was a little tired. I also noticed our bedroom was very noisy.

      • The quiet location and ease of getting into the city centre, hotel are just like you see on the web site, the friendly staff are probably the best thing there. The family bedrooms are a good size and the beds are comfy, pool and sauna is amazing.

        Creakng floorboards in the room above kept us awake.
