Good Central Holyrood Park accommodation

Posted 09-Aug-2017
Convenient access to Edinburgh city centre and the amazing Holyrood Park for great walks and panoramic views. Staff are great and buffet breakfast amazing. Rooms are basic, accommodation is in University grounds, our room a little noisy at night as right above entrance door of ground floor and next to entry door on our floor, 1st floor. Nice communal lounge downstairs with tea and coffee available, restaurant on-site also, great bar/restaurant short walk on campus also. Definitely great for a short stay, ours was 2 nights.

Decent hotel near halls of residence

Posted 17-Jul-2017
Staff very good, food good, although we only had breakfast. Bus stop nearby to get straight into city centre. Room was small and mattress very soft but still managed a good sleep as it was quiet and set away from the main road. Would be good if there were vending machines to get juice, water etc. Otherwise a decent hotel and would stay again.

Good location easy local bus service into town.

Posted 09-Jul-2017
Pros: Location to city centre, local transport.
Cons: As we were halfboard the evening menu was restricted for stays longer than two nights. We were staying 4 nights a more flexible choice would be nice.
Location: The location is good, it's Edinburgh plenty to see and do.
Comfortable, good food and pleasant helpful staff .

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

Posted 05-Jun-2017
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!
