Stayed two nights on a visit to Edinburgh. Hotel is few miles out from the centre but has a good bus service every ten minutes to the centre. A nice hotel with the use of the leisure facilities. Nice big rooms and really no complaints at all, would recommend this hotel.

Nice hotel in a convenient location and not too far from the city. Rooms were quite modern, clean and well equipped. Leisure club very good, and the food in the bar was good and very reasonably priced. Free car parking on site. Staff very friendly and helpful, I would stay again.

I would have rated this hotel 5 star but it is only let down by its location. 50 mins on a bus to far end of princess st. Checked in early at 11.30 and were still able to get our rooms, by helpful desk staff. Rooms were large and well furnished with a very big comfortable bed. Hairdryer and toiletries... More

Was really pleasantly surprised with the size of the room, in particular the bed was massive. Breakfast and dinner were both great and the gym and pool were also a good addition to this hotel and were well run. Staff were all friendly and helpful.

We spent 1 night at this hotel at the expense of Easyjet following a flight cancellation. Check in was chaotic with guests given keys to rooms that were already occupied. The room we spent the night in (69) was not the best with a dirty carpet, stained headboard and a dodgy remote for the television. It was an experience I... More
