Good hotel in lovely surroundings.

Posted 06-Jun-2017
Pros: I loved the amenities in the deluxe room and the décor was lovely. Particularly liked the comfy bed and flat screen tv.
Cons: Only stayed in the deluxe room so not sure what the standard rooms are like.
Location: Excellent location set in the leafy University grounds with parking facilities. Close to the Commonwealth pool and a short bus ride to the centre.
I stayed in a single double deluxe room with breakfast included for 2 nights. The room was of an excellent standard with power shower, double bed and flat screen tv. Travelling alone I felt very safe here. The buffet breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice from the hot and cold buffet. I also ate at the bistro restaurant one night and had the set meal of £15 for two courses which I enjoyed as it was good quality food. I would definitely stay here again and the location was excellent for me as it was within a few minutes walking distance to the Commonwealth pool. You can catch a bus across the road into the centre of Edinburgh or it is a short taxi ride away.

Ok

Location is approx 20mins walk from the city centre via residential streets. The "hotel" sits inside the student campus is beautifully located next to Arthur's Seat (worth the climb to see Edinburgh and surroundings). The breakfast staff were great and the buffet style breakfast was plentiful (including haggis and black pudding). As for the room - booked a deluxe room (it was comfortable) however the let down were the thin walls!

Handy location, pleasant place to stay.

Posted 24-May-2017
Pros: Excellent venue and staff.
Location: Masson House was ideally located to both explore the city as buses were a short walk away, or do some hiking up Arthur's Seat oif one wanted to .
We were surprised and happy to stay within the Uni grounds -it was secure, beautiful, and so close to transport links to see Edinburgh. A really nice breakfast topped up a very nice stay there.

Basic, adequate accommodation. Seemed to be a mix up between Expedia and Hotel as I booked and received confirmation for 2 rooms and only 1 was reserved on arrival. Sorted eventually. Another party had the same problem so would recommend confirming by phone prior to arrival.

This hotel is right next to Holyrood Park so is very convenient if walking the countryside is what you are after.
