Reception under staffed

Posted 02-Nov-2015
Pros: Warm fire in the reception, but the room was cold
Cons: Dinning room a bit more cheery in decor
Location: Out of town , need to bus Into town , maybe a shuttle bus would be good and more staff on the reception
I was locked out of my room before I had the chance to check out..I was staying one night and I found it quite prices given that my friends were checked in for 2 nights and dinner was free for them , I had to pay for dinner. The dinning room lacked atmosphere, but the brasserie was warm and cheery , definitely go there,but the food was delicious . My room was too big, and I had a walk in shower for disabled, but I would of preferred a room on the higher floor, and allow some one who needed this room the chance... Restaurant and breakfast was lovely, and plenty to eat...bit of of the way though..

Excellent for short stopover

Posted 01-Nov-2015
I shared a twin room with my son on the way to the Highlands and wanted to visit relations in Edinburgh en route. This hotel did a very good job for 1 night and breakfast was superb. We arrived too late to use the pool etc but we had a drink in the bar which was most relaxing after a long drive. The room looked as if it had been refurbished recently to a reasonably high standard but it was a little on the cool side and the bathroom heated towel rail was broken. However overall I would be happy to return and I think the hotel would have sorted the issue if we had stayed longer.

Excellent hotel, near to Edinburgh.

Posted 23-Oct-2015
Pros: Décor, pool, gym, spa, food, cleanliness, comfort, parking, transport links, and it's in a nice area.
Cons: Fridges in rooms would be nice.
Location: Hotel is in a nice area. Bus stop outside of hotel, train station nearby for access to Edinburgh attractions. Beach, Weatherspoons, shop nearby
Looking for peace and quiet, but near to Edinburgh with great transport links and great facilities - you can't go wrong with this hotel. After a day of sight seeing, relax in the swimming pool, spa, steam room, gym, fitness classes etc. Chat over a meal in the lovely restaurant. Comfortable rooms. Free Wifi. Have a great breakfast then leave the car in the car park and hop on the bus or train to Edinburgh just a 30min ride away.

Bedroom walls could do with soundproofing

Posted 11-Oct-2015
Pros: Location and cleanliness
Cons: Better soundproofing in the bedroom walls
Location: All we know it's dead centre between Musselburgh and Edinburgh which was ideal for our stay.
My wife and I were staying 1 night for a friend's wedding. With the reception in Musselburgh we chose the hotel on proximity. As my wife is pregnant we had an early night. On the same night the hotel was holding a wedding function which was in full flow when we got back. We aren't normally fussy however we could hear the muffled sound from the dj and music from the function. We could've taken this on the chin if it wasn't for the couple next door who were getting 'jiggy' or intimate and kept us up. The walls seemed to be paper thin. We stayed in room 112. Breakfast was good, the nice waiter kept filling up the coffee. Just to add the bedroom en-suite had recently been refurbed and was lovely!

Pros: Staff were great. Always smiling and always happy to help. The room we had was huge and the bed was very comfortable.
Cons: Breakfast was nice but i felt the quality of the ingredients could be improved, only thing i can pick on as the stay was superb.
Location: Waterfront just a short walk away which is nice.
Really helpful staff who could all give good advice about Edinburgh and were always smiling and there to help. Chose this hotel due to price. The cost of this hotel was half of the ones we saw in the center of Edinburgh, we came by car so the free car parking also made a difference.We got taxis into central Edinburgh (cost c. £10 -£15 per trip to Edinburgh in a taxi) which we did 4 times, but still worked out cheaper to stay here. There is a bus stop directly outside the outside the hotel with a regular bus going into Edinburgh central. The pool was an added bonus.

Close to Edinburgh with plenty of free parking

Posted 22-Sep-2015
Pros: Convenient for Edinburgh city centre, also easily accessible by bus. Parking is plentiful and free. Very nice bar and bistro attached to the hotel.
Cons: Some rooms had been refurbished, others, although clean and comfortable would benefit from some improvement.
Location: Convenient for Edinburgh city centre, 20 to 25 minute bus ride away.
Nice hotel conveniently placed for Edinburgh. Bus stops are right outside the hotel and Edinburgh is a short bus ride away. Some rooms have been refurbished and are very clean and comfortable. The staff were lovely, very polite and helpful and the breakfasts, although not included in the room rate, were high quality, very well cooked and good value. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to my friends.

Ok choice

Posted 21-Sep-2015
My room, an ordinary single room, was quite spacious. Clean bathroom. (The clubrooms have better standard) English breakfast. Missed cheese and fresh fruits. About 15 min by bus to downtown, buses run often (app every 10 min)

Location: Edinburgh Tatoo Fringe
Friendly staff and a great place to get into Edinburgh easily from. Unfortunately woken both mornings with a loud noise and vibration ? power shower in connecting room. Complained both mornings but staff just seemed mystified.
