Always a great stay!

Posted 02-Mar-2015
Pros: Nice clean room, HOT shower, a great selection of TV channels, great breakfast selection, nice and friendly staff, centrally located in Edinburgh.
Location: It's located half a block from Weaverly Train Station on the Old Town side of Edinburgh. Walking distance to all the sites in Edinburgh.
This was my 2nd stay at this specific hotel, and each time I always have a wonderful time with them. Whether you're arriving by train or plane, this is the BEST location in Edinburgh. The AirLink bus from Edinburgh Airport and the Weaverly Train Station are both just a half a block from the hotel. As someone who HATES to drag their luggage...this location is perfect! The rooms are clean and efficient (but in a good way). The breakfast is also one of the best I've had. The hotel staff is friendly, helpful, and always have a smile for you. I enjoyed this hotel so much, I now always keep an eye out for a Motel One when traveling to other cities in Europe.

Nice location

Posted 02-Mar-2015
I liked the hotel. It's modern and looks nice. The first room they put us was smelling as fresh paint, but when we told them they changed us to another. I would stay again. It's close to the Royal Mile and you can do everything walking.

Great location

Posted 01-Mar-2015
Nice room size (we stayed in the 'classic'), modern decor, very clean, nice sized bathroom and shower. Very easy check in and check out and staff are willing to keep a hold of bags if you arrive too early for check in. Never tried the bar/food area so can't comment on them. Great central location, right next to Waverely Station and the Royal Mile etc. If I was reaching for things to improve then I'd say for £84pn I would have expected soap in the bathroom, possibly even toothbrushes for those who forget and maybe even a biscuit to go with the tea and coffee based on other hotels I've stayed at in a similar price range. Didn't purchase breakfast as it was very dear for what it was but it's Edinburgh so I know things have a higher mark up. Apart from that, I was very happy with the hotel. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others :)

Very pleasing

Posted 19-Feb-2015
Pros: Location was superb. Felt very comfortable all round.
Location: On the doorstep of Waverley Station and only a short walk from the Royal Mile. Perfect!
A great hotel with a distinctive style- especially the electric blue tartan! Fantastic bar/lounge area and neat, minimalistic rooms.

ok central hotel

Posted 25-Jan-2015
Pros: happy for you to leave bags when you check out in case you have shopping etc to do
Cons: see above
Location: great location near train station
had stayed here before a few months ago and my room was fine, stayed here with my wife on friday night and the room had a few issues. firstly there was no plug near the table where the kettle was...my option was to move it and place it on the floor next to the bed (only plug it could use as the other one on the wall was too high up) - hardly safe or practical. The receptionist option was to give me an extension lead!!! EVERY hotel i stayed in across the world that had a kettle had a plug next to it pillows are way to soft and a double bed with 2 single duvets seemed a bit strange to me

Excellent hotel, very central.

Posted 23-Jan-2015
Stayed for 3 nights jan 2015. Got bus from airport which stopped 1minute away from hotel (train station just across the road). Princes St gardens outside front door so very central! Beautiful hotel, well decorated. Rooms great, clean and well equipped with tea/ coffee facilities, hairdryer, tv etc. Beds are very comfy too. Rooms could do with a few more clothes hangers and some hair conditioner but overall an excellent hotel!
