Great Hotel close to transportation

Posted 03-Jan-2017
Very nice hotel located on bus lines to city. About 10 minutes of bus travel to Princess Street and a few minutes more to rail station. U.S style rooms with lots of space but a very small bathroom. Restaurant/ bar on premises. We enjoyed breakfast but were out and about for other meals. Zoo is right next door.

Good, comfortable stay with easy access to city.

Posted 01-Jan-2017
Pros: Good links to city centre via local bus service; easy to get to via motorway network. Gym facilities were good.
Cons: Bathroom small and starting to look a little grubby.
Location: Literally right next door to the zoo. Good choice of pubs/take-aways approx. 10 minute walk out of town. Easy and cheap bus service to city centre.
Showing some signs of age, but a good hotel with easy access to city centre and helpful staff. We stayed in between Christmas and New Year so there were quite a lot of families present. We had to book a slot to use the swimming pool which seemed strange, but actually it made the experience better as there were limited people using it when we were in. We ate out in the evening but the breakfast buffet was good - the usual choice of hot food, cereal, toast, pastries etc. Staff were friendly and helpful.

nice hotel

Posted 13-Dec-2016
Location: Next door to zoo,there is in fact a shared car park,also only a few bus stops from Murrayfield
A very nice hotel although can be a bit expensive depending on time of visit . Edinburgh hotels seem as expensive as London.Breakfast was good although some items finished and not replaced-staff shortages?Hotel was clean and staff very pleasant.Short bus ride into city-around 15 mins

Visit to Friends Locally

Posted 15-Nov-2016
Pros: It was convenient for our purpose.
Cons: Nothing in particular other than mentioned above.
Location: Not applicable.
Room was adequate but considerable mould on silicone in bathroom and on grouting. There on a B & B basis - breakfast was acceptable but the cooked dishes could have been hotter although this may be common with self service.

Convenient location

Posted 07-Nov-2016
This hotel is conveniently located about a 10-15 minute bus ride from Princes Street. The bus stops directly outside the hotel and operates about every 10 minutes which is very convenient. Breakfast includes a wide variety of options and is definitely worth the extra money. The parking spaces are extremely tight which makes parking difficult. Staff were not very helpful which was disappointing.
