Very nice old style hotel

Posted 23-Feb-2017
Ok there are more modern hotels and in brand new condition in the heart of Edinburgh but they will be at least double the price. The room was very clean and had everything you can want. Breakfast was good and quickly served. Internet (free) was excellent and very fast. I would stay here again when going to Edinburgh.

Nice hotel for a city break

Posted 12-Feb-2017
This is a nice well kept hotel within walking distance of the city centre. The staff were so friendly and honest to a fault. I tried to tip but they are not allowed to accept (some charity connection. I would stay there again and would recommend it.

Cheap and cheerful without a cheap price

Posted 12-Dec-2016 on Hotels
When booking the Salisbury Green, we expected a converted castle, however upon arrival it was apparent we were staying in re-purposed student accommodation. Staying on the ground floor, our room was very basic with a small double bed, poor lighting (only lamps) and with only key card provided meaning you lost power to the room when going for breakfast. We were very disappointed with the quality of the room relative to the price that we paid. We would not stay here again.

A Magical (mini) Castle!

Posted 28-Nov-2016
Pros: Premises, location, quiet, service.
Cons: TV was way too small!
Location: Arthur's Seat, Holyrood Palace, Old Town, The University of Edinburgh.
This hotel is located on the foot of Arthur's Seat, in the vicinity of Holyrood Palace, and at an okay distance from Old Town. What charmed us mostly about it is its building, which is an old Victorian house located in a rather secluded and very quiet area, surrounded by nature. I would recommend it to anyone hoping to stay in a quiet place with a magical castle-like ambience.

relaxing break in Edinburgh

Posted 22-Nov-2016 on Hotels
a comfortable room, informative reception, good breakfast, a bus stop right outside the gates or a 20 min walk into the centre, free car park which is a bargain in Edinburgh and a lovely man on the gate with the parking permits.

Amazing value.

Posted 21-Nov-2016
Pros: Just about everything.
Cons: Entry hall is very dated and slight damp smell, but room was great.
Location: Bus stop across road straight to city centre. Pub across road.
The room was spotlessly clean, lovely big bathroom and all staff were extremely pleasant. Easy commute to Edinburgh city centre by bus. Fantastic breakfast. Amazing value for money.

Just OK, disappointing

Posted 14-Nov-2016 on Hotels
For us this is not a hotel more like a hostel or a house you stay in! On arrival the hotel is badly signposted in the heart of student halls, once you find the hotel you arrive at the front door to find you have to check in at the adjacent building, breakfast on out first day was in the same building second and third in Salisbury Green, their are no facilities expected with a Hotel stay here at all!! The rooms are ok, disappointing decor with an unfortunate issue with the toilet in our room, it's about to fall off the wall!! On the positive location is good an easy walk in to the centre and to be fair no noise was heard from the student halls. All in all an OK stay, would we stay here again?? Maybe, but only for location and the car parking facilities. If you are wanting a hotel it's a NO for us but somewhere to sleep it's sufficient, not worth the money paid I'm afraid.

Right in the middle of student accommodation. Room was small and had a smell of urine but was clean. Breakfast was good but did not expect to be in the middle of a student village. Rooms could be doing with a freshen up and modernised
