Don’t like giving any establishment a one star rating but we struggled to take any positives away from our stay.

We left it late to book after a urge to spend New Year in Edinburgh but were delighted find a hotel within twenty minute walk of the city centre. On arrival the hotel looked presentable from the outside but found the previous reviews about the poor attitude of staff to be correct. We were then taken outside and walked two doors down the street to a separate annex away from the main hotel. We ended up in a corridor sharing two bathrooms, one had a broken lock and our whistling skills are nothing ...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for four nights over the New Year. We booked the hotel at the beginning of December so we expected to pay over the odds because we had left it late and most hotels were fully occupied. Unfortunately, I would say £10 a night would be classed as 'daylight robbery' for a room at Merith House let alone the £100 a night we paid. We arrived to discover that the parking that we were promised when making the booking was on a busy main street where you had to 'find a spot...

Some of the time it felt as though I was staying in a prison, as I did not feel appreciated as a paying guest; and I'm sure a prison breakfast would have been better than the Farm Foods offerings here.

In this trade you need to love your customers and love your calling: a smile and a bit of relaxed bante...

A non-credible hotel

by PetiteNemo on 30 Dec 2016 (Solo Traveller)

I made a reservation on their official website for a stay of 3 nights at the total cost of 60 pounds (single ensuite room). A confirmation latter was sent to me right after the booking was done. I paid 60 pounds at the reception upon my arrival. Everything seemed alright. However, after having stayed there for two nights, I suddendly received a call from the hotel on the third day as I was out visiting the city. The man said that I didn't pay for the third night (that 60 pounds I paid only count...

Good location near park.

The parking is just street parking and can be difficult at times. The house is clean but could use some updating. All and all it was right on for the price. The owners we nice and gave some good recommendations for local eats.
