Excellently placed for walking up Holyrood Park

Posted 02-Aug-2015
Pros: I liked the indoor pool, sauna, changing rooms. Breakfast was good. I found the staff really welcoming and friendly and very helpful.
Cons: No improvement needed.
Location: Within easy reach of Holyrood Park, Scottish Parliament, Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street and Calton Hill.
We found the hotel easily enough thanks to a very friendly bus driver on route 35 from the airport. The hotel is excellently placed for Holyrood Park, the Scottish Parliament and is within easy reach of Calton Hill. The hotel accommodation is like all McDonald Hotels, clean, comfortable, stylish. Our bed was extremely comfortable and our room lovely and quiet; just the way we like it. Breakfast at the hotel was good. The indoor pool was a good size for doing lengths. Edinburgh itself is a beautiful city and easy to get around on foot.

Good and not so good

Posted 27-Jul-2015
Pros: Again I would like to say the staff were really lovely
Cons: The plumbing needs some attention
Location: Ideal location as close to city centre, but quiet next to Holyrood Palace and Arthurs seat
Good points: The staff were brilliant, the room clean and the evening meal and breakfast were excellent Bad points: Our room had a very wet carpet by the bathroom door and the hot tap was not fixed and the whole tap moved when trying to turn it on making it almost impossible to get hot water- after asking someone to investigate we were kindly given a second room opposite, the tap had an identical problem but it was possible to turn it on.

Nice hotel close to Castle

Posted 23-Jul-2015
Pros: Location Charming & helpful Concierge Gareth
Cons: Wi-Fi service Car Parking friendly
Location: Castle & local Park
Met are basic expectation. Terrible Wi-Fi arrangements - not user friendly - to claim a free Guest Service is a cheek as Service Provider wants all personal details for initial set up - so be warned !!!

Pros: The room was clean. The location is not bad with good prices.
Cons: It seems that the number of the staff or/and training for them is not sufficient. The service at the reception and the restaurant was not great.
Location: The location is not bad.
The room itself was OK and clean. I saw uncleaned bed sheets in a corridor from afternoon till night. The restaurant made a mistake about our orders and mistakenly charged.

Quality hotel at fairly high prices

Posted 14-Jul-2015
In general this is a pleasant and conveniently situated hotel. Rooms are spacious; breakfast offers good variety. Staff are very friendly and polite. Only criticisms were that both knobs on the air-conditioning control needed replacing (this was done promptly) and there ought to be proper leaf tea available in a four-star hotel.
