Ok but only just! Probably better to try somewhere else

by Mjsheldrick on 02 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

Pretty basic, they say parking is possible but neglect to say a few blocks away, we rented 3 executive double suites for our family, supposed to be identical but all vastly different in size and quality. Our room was excessively hot turning all radiators off made no difference. Advised our bed room was sitting on top of the hotel boiler so best to avoid suite called "Bollywood" especially as it kept making klunking noises at regular intervals all night, they didn't replenish our supplies on sec...

Visiting Edinburgh

by LaurenKath on 01 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

We arrived late afternoon for our planned stay of two nights. On arrival, the staff member greeted us warmly and we were asked for upfront payment of £20 more than my email confirmation amount.

Quirky, comfortable, welcoming, nice views, good location

The room was large and comfortable, the heating could be adjusted, the shower - slightly erratic but mostly ok, parking in adjacent streets and no charge at the weekend, plenty of good eating options - I recommend Skerries next door (quite upmarket) and Sainsbury's café (the other side of Murrayfield - terrific Scottish breakfast!)
