Nice Hotel not far from Edinburgh old town

Posted 21-Jun-2015
Location: Loads to do In Edinburgh and also easy access to Arthurs Seat (the hill behind the hotel)
Beautiful old converted hotel run by Edinburgh University - lots of carved wood on the walls ceilings etc downstairs. Comfortable clean rooms with recently renovated good size bathrooms. Fabulous breakfasts! Really useful hotel for getting out and about as there is a bus stop outside with frequent buses in and out of town (time for the next one is given electronically at the bus stop). All the buses have good wifi which is really useful. A day pass for the bus is £4. Buses are definitely the easiest way of trundling around to see the sights.

salisbury in June

Posted 15-Jun-2015
Pros: historic look and breakfast included- helpful front desk folks
Cons: little airflow in the rooms..a fan at least.
Location: nothing immediately out the door, but just a short walk.
good for price. if not for cool weather would have been issue with no AC in the rooms. nearest walk to store is about 10 min but can easily catch a bus just a 1 minute walk away or walk to downtown in 20 minutes. pretty standard for UK type accommodations.

Good, well-located conference-style hotel

Posted 03-Jun-2015
Pros: The breakfast; the position - so close to the city centre; the wood panelling in the older part of the building
Cons: Check-in: We had a slight problem checking in: the room key didn't work and had to be replaced - although this was done relatively painlessly.
Location: Holyrood Park and Arthurs Seat for the energetic, and the many restaurants and pubs of Edinburgh's south side for everybody else. Great bus service.
The location is great, next to Holyrood Park, and the ambience is very pleasant. The rooms are clean and spacious - if a little institutional - while the breakfasts set a very high standard.

Pros: charmigt hotell med stor karaktär.Fina trädetaljer,påminner om ett slott i mindre skala

Location: nära in till centrum.bra bussförbindelser.många sevärdigheter på nära håll
vi hade en bra vistelse där.Perfekt hotell för de som vill ha tyst på nätterna.

Nice hotel. Good location. Great breakfast

Posted 19-May-2015
Pros: Nice quiet rooms. Intimate. Breakfast was very good. Never had this quality at other hotels.
Location: Arthur seat. Edinburgh castle. Royal mile. Bunch of pubs. All walking distance.
We spent 7 nights at this hotel. It was a nice place and really centered. You can walk to old town center, easy access to Arthur seat which is little mountain you can climb to have the nicest view on Edinburgh. The breakfast were very good. Big selection of cold and hot dishes. The only negative point I have is I found the mattress too soft. Although it didn't not stopping me for having good night sleep. Thanks you very much for the great experience.

Nice hotel on the University of Edinburgh campus

Posted 14-May-2015
Nice sized rooms and bathrooms. The bed was a little hard for my taste. There is no elevator, and we were three floors up, so keep that in mind when making reservations.

Pros: Just 20 minutes by walk from the Castle.
Cons: The brightness of the lights into the bathroom.
Location: Salisbury Arms, a great Pub in front of the Hotel where you can spend good times and enjoy good food.
A nice old Manor close to the city centre with a taxi station nearby, ideal location for couples who want to visit the magic city of Edinburgh.
