HUGE Mistake

Posted 09-Sep-2015
Sucks doesn't cover this. The room was clean, but very worn. The bed was very small and noisy. The staff was dismissive. I asked for a laundry facility, and received a map, but nothing was marked and the campus was pitch black...yeah, campus. This is a dorm room on a college campus. The grounds are beautiful during the daylight, but don't expect to find anything after dark.

Way overpriced - disappointed

Posted 29-Aug-2015
Cons: Hotel stuff is not helpful at all Facilities - at least check TVs in rooms
Location: Around 30 min walk form the city centre, about 10 min by bus
- It was freezing in my room and had to sleep under two blankets (that was in August with the heater at the max setting). They said they would bring a portable heater, and didn't do so. - TV wouldn't turn on. - Water stream in the bathroom sink couldn't be adjusted, and the default pressure was very high, with water ending up everywhere around the sink - Breakfast is OK: choice of fruit, cheese, bakery, etc. Coffee was no good though. - Reception is very crowded.

Highly Recommended

Posted 26-Aug-2015
Pros: Helpful and pleasant staff.
Cons: A little more choice on the menu please.
Location: Just below Arthur's Seat. Easy access to city centre - by foot if you're fit, or a 5 min taxi otherwise.
Characterful (aren't we all!), with simple but clean and well decorated rooms. Bathroom modern and quite large. Food and staff excellent, though buffet menu a little limited. I'll be back!

well run rooms

Posted 03-Aug-2015
Pros: see above
Cons: not much. Would have liked the busses running later. Taxis were cheap though.
Location: castle and other historical places, shopping, pubs, views and walkablity or short bus ride to all.
Clean, modern with style and roomy. Breakfast was great. Easy to catch the bus for a short ride downtown. Price was right. Very quiet.

Un hotel bien trop cher pour l'absence de services

Posted 01-Aug-2015
Si la chambre était correcte, le reste de l'hotel était complétement décalé par rapport au produit décrit sur le site: pas de personnel sur place, communs en état très très moyen, très peu de places de parking disponibles, pas de bar, canapés défoncés. Rajoutez à cela que le bâtiment, coincé entre des bâtiments quelconques d'un campus, perd absolument tout son charme. Bref, même si la chambre était parfaite, tout était gâché par le reste, environnement et écarts entre le produit vendu et le produit constaté. Quelle déception !

Absolute schöne Lage, stadtnah jedoch ruhig und im Grünen. Ausgezeichnetes Frühstück, großzügige Zimmer, neu renoviertes Bad. Sehr bequeme Betten.

Sehr schönes Hotel, Zimmer haben aber kein Flair

Posted 07-Jul-2015
Pros: Der Charme des alten Gebäudes und der alten Inneneinrichtung.
Cons: Die Zimmer brauchen etwas von dem Charme des restlichen Gebäudes.
Location: ca. 20min von der Royal mile, neben einem riesigen Schwimmbad, gegenüber eines Pubs mit exzellentem Essen.
Das Hotel ist gut mit dem Bus oder in ca. 30 Minuten zu Fuß von Waverly Station aus zu erreichen. Hinter einer hübschen Fassade und sehr schönem Dekor im inneren verstecken sich aber leider "08/15"-Zimmer völlig ohne Flair. Der Frühstücksraum ist etwas arg gelb. Bett, Badezimmer und Frühstück waren gut. Wir würden wieder hinfahren, hatten aber mehr erwartet.

Nice Hotel not far from Edinburgh old town

Posted 21-Jun-2015
Location: Loads to do In Edinburgh and also easy access to Arthurs Seat (the hill behind the hotel)
Beautiful old converted hotel run by Edinburgh University - lots of carved wood on the walls ceilings etc downstairs. Comfortable clean rooms with recently renovated good size bathrooms. Fabulous breakfasts! Really useful hotel for getting out and about as there is a bus stop outside with frequent buses in and out of town (time for the next one is given electronically at the bus stop). All the buses have good wifi which is really useful. A day pass for the bus is £4. Buses are definitely the easiest way of trundling around to see the sights.
