Kev Solo - 20/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I went to Edinburgh for a few days R&R on my own and i had the most amazing time, the hotel was fantastic, breakfast was brilliant (had an array of vegan options) leasure centre was small but clean and quite so turned out perfect, staff was so helpful my room was very modern and spotless clean and i couldn't hear any outside noises such as noise from the other rooms and the road that you'd typically get in most hotels. Next time i go back to Edinburgh I wont be wasting my time looking for hotels as i will be back to this one.

Regularly stay here-rooms always clean but air conditioning variable. Food is let-down though -especially the breakfast buffet. It’s left out for too long and the fried eggs are so rubbery.Service generally organised and friendly.

Little affordable gem in centre

Kerry Families - 09/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very enjoyable. Easy to get to and park, lady at reception and all other staff lovely. Nice and clean. Couple of points that are just wee things that bother me. Toilet is separate room to shower which is great but no bin, toilet brush or sink in toilet. We had our baby with us and they provided a cot but only with the paper thing rock solid travel cot board. No mattress........baby slept in pram. Breakfast is a wonderful selection but they need to watch the freshness as alot looked like it had been out a while and no black pudding! Pool is wonderful and warm but jacuzzi not hot enough. I have to say we would definitely stay again and these are just points that could help improved overall.
