Great location next to the zoo. Breakfast and pool were good. Room wasn’t cleaned or teas replenished during a 3 night stay. Cost was completely unrepresentative of the standard of the hotel

Situated outside the city centre, yet on a main thoroughfare for ease of bus transport. Beside the zoo, a major attraction. The best thing for me was the amazing refurbishment downstairs, where a genuine retro style had been reproduced.

This property has a large free car park for hotel guests. There is a bus stop outside the property with buses stopping on Princes Street, so you do not need to use your car in Edinburgh. However, for the cost-£100 per night, the property is tired looking and in some areas, in need of TLC. The bathroom was too small-in order to shut the door, you are having to stand over the toilet, being mindful of the large sink also jutting out into the room. 18 inches could easily have been taken from the bedroom to give a bigger bathroom with more ability to move. When I arrived neither the TV nor the safe worked. The TV would only provide BBC-the remote would not sync to change the TV, and the safe door would not close to enable the setting of a new number. However, both were quickly fixed by housekeeping. As other reviewers have said, the menu at this hotel is limiting, with usual pub fare food. The restaurant staff were very friendly though.

We went to Edinburgh to visit the zoo. This hotel is just next-door and an excellent location for visitors to the zoo. It was also only a short bus ride into the city center.

Very Nice Weekend Stay
Was a lovely stay in this hotel. Breakfast was great, service was great. Wasn't explained when we turned up what the times were for breakfast, there was nothing in the room either. But we googled it from the room and found the details. Room was a little tired, very clean though.
