    Good base for a trip to Edinburgh. Hotel is basic and can be very busy checking in. Breakfast is also extremely busy. I would book in advance as the rate they charge for on the day booking is totally not worth it.More

    Good hotel in convenient central location - parking slightly difficult to find and needed to check with staff at desk - otherwise clean room with friendly staff and good breakfast. Would stay again if needing a central Edinburgh location.
