Lovely and helpful staff. Convenient location. However the room was in poor condition and absolutely freezing at night as no heating even in the middle of winter, which made me ill. Terrible experience that ruined my holiday in Edinburgh. The exterior is nice, just don't expect the same standard in some of the rooms. The staff deserve a praise though......

Stayed April 20-22, hotel is easy to find and a stones throw from hay market station. Rooms, bathrooms and overall very clean looking hotel. Floors creak a little, but overall a very good stay. Breakfast, plenty of options for all tastes. Good for parking, as they have around 8-10 spaces available...would visit again if in the Edinburgh area

After flying in we found the place easily and although early staff were happy for us to dump our bags. Room was at front and windows banged a little. For five room was as one but spacious and comfortable. Staff were helpful and friendly with every request. Breakfast was good, lots of choice! Good walk to town centre but not...

This place is not the worlds most luxurious hotel but is great for what you pay. Sheets smelt clean, as did the towels. Breakfast was OK. Its location is perfect, bus stop right outside that will take you into the city center

I stayed with my wife and two daughters on 11th-13th March 2017 for two nights with a double and twin room. Rooms were comfortable, very quiet and warm. Only pointers: unfinished electrical lamps etc not all working and some requiring wiring again. Bar stock also needs replenished. Special thanks to a member of staff working the long night shifts, Robert....

There's no doubt that this is a 3* hotel as it is dated. When we first got there the room was cold as we had picked a room on the top floor (the only one available with a bath at the time). However! As soon as I asked for the heating to be put on, it was and the room...

The hotel is approx a 15 minute walk to the centre of Edinburgh and offers free parking. Room was basic but comfortable. Room was cleaned and fresh towels provided every day. When we entered our room we were greeted with a bottle of wine and some lovely Scottish Shortbread biscuits. Our room was in the old part of the building...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
