Excellent location with easy access to the centre.

Posted 20-Jul-2014
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.

This hotel has great staff! The room was beautiful and clean! It was easy to find and good transport into Edinburgh. I used hotel as I needed to join a ship early the next morning but I can't wait to bring my wife here for a weekend break. I loved it!!!!

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.

A GOOD NIGHT SLEEP

Posted 15-Jun-2014
Stayed here for a night.. absolutely comfortable bed. The bedroom and the bathroom were a bit small but absolutely spotless. One of the cleanest i have seen. breakfast was great as well, but thought the juices were too watery. The dinner service was efficient and my wife loved the Cajun Pork Chop but my beer battered Haddock was not very impressive.

Lovely hotel

Posted 10-Jun-2014
This is a lovely hotel, close to a large superstore and the beach. Only a short train or bus journey to the town centre. The rooms were clean and relaxing, and the restaurant food was really good. Access to the spa next door was a bonus too!

Close to the racing

Posted 27-May-2014
Pros: Cleanliness.
Location: Musselburgh racecourse.
We only really used the hotel for a place to put our heads after a night at Musselburgh racing but we found the hotel to be spotless. A great big huge bed in our room. Breakfast in the morning was also excellent.

Great hotel on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

Posted 27-May-2014
Pros: Location, facilities and cleanliness.
Location: Close to the beach at Portobello and also near to Musselburgh which had some good facilities. Also good for public transport into Edinburgh.
We were there for the Edinburgh Marathon and I was worried that it would be too far out however it proved to be the ideal location as they had organised taxis into the city for £2.00 per head taking us to the start of the race. It was also ideally situated for the finish of the race being close to Musselburgh. The hotel had great facilities including a good gym and swimming pool which we made use of. There was also a nice tennis court but the weather wasn't suited to this. We were fortunate to be in one of the newer bedrooms, presumably in an extended part of the hotel, but our daughter and boyfriend were put in one of the older rooms which were quite a bit smaller.
