Outside the City Centre: Economical Alternative

Posted 12-Aug-2014
Pros: Economical and friendly. Nice pub/restaurant on site gives you good meals and refreshments.
Location: Not much nearby, although Portobello beach might be a nice local outing. Spent most of time downtown thanks to the excellent bus and train connections
Basic rooms, no air conditioning (not needed), slightly confusing layout; but the breakfast was delicious, the staff friendly and there are several inexpensive, convenient options to get downtown. The 44 and 44A buses are frequent, and take about 30 minutes to Princes Street (look for the Scott Monument, and you won't get lost). Alternatively, trains from Brunstane station link up with the mainline at Waverly. Maybe a 10 minute walk from the hotel to the train station, so very convenient and lots of options.

Secert hotel (was awesome)

Posted 12-Aug-2014
Hotel is £11 tax from town, but it has everything you need. All staff are nice and the room is a really good size :) The pool and gym were the bonus for this hotel, as it's a nuttfield gym (which are really good) Will stay again if it was closer :)

Great hotel easy access into Central Edinburgh

Posted 05-Aug-2014
Pros: Pool and jacuzzi.
Cons: A it more pressure on the shower
Location: Easy to find just off the A1 with a bus stop right outside.
Stayed for two nights to see the Royal Tattoo and do a bit of site seeing. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the facilities including the swimming pool were a treat. Room was big and comfortable. What more could you want?

Close to beach. Far from center.

Posted 03-Aug-2014
Breakfast is included which is necessary because there is no other place to eat. But the food is such poor quality I could barely eat it. They have two resturants here with equally bad food. The rest of the facilities are of a 3 star hotel-no more but the food pulls it way down.

Nice hotel with great pool bonus!

Posted 30-Jul-2014
Pros: The pool and facilities
Cons: larger rooms? Larger plates?
Location: everything is easily accessible by a great bus service.....city center just a 15 min journey....huge asda 5 minutes away :)
Small room but perfectly adequate for our needs. Pool facilities great and was the highlight of this hotel. Small plates for breakfast but maybe thats a wee bit picky, service freindly and efficient.

Excellent location with easy access to the centre.

Have stayed here on numerous occasions and staff are always warm, welcoming and friendly. It is hit and miss as to whether or not you are allocated one of their bigger rooms but regardless the room is always clean and tidy. The breakfast is he usual "help yourself" buffet style and is good value for money. We have not dined here in the evening, preferring to go to the "St Andrews" Italian restaurant in Portobello, which does extremely good fish and chips as well as a host of other items. There is a bus stop at the hotel entrance and you can buy an off peak day ticket for £3.50 and roam the city all day. Far easier than driving and parking in Edinburgh which is a nightmare, even for those who know the city! Musselburgh racecourse is also only a 10 minute bus ride from the hotel and the town itself is very pleasant to browse through. The hotel is just a great location to be based in, albeit expensive in festival time, which I think most are.

Good value hotel on the outskirts of Edinburgh

Posted 15-Jul-2014
About 15 min drive into town. Very clean. Nothing to fault my stay other than being awoken at 6:45 by someone in the room next door doing what can only be described as shouting down the phone.

Good Hotel

Posted 26-Jun-2014
Lovely spa, good facilities and food. Staff were super-helpful and everything needed was available. Stayed in a small single room which really was small but excellent value and when travelling alone as I was who needs bigger. Connections into town centre were perfect with a bus running from the front door direct for £3.50.
