Booked 2 family rooms for 2 nights. Beds were comfortable and rooms nicely decorated, although far too hot and the air conditioning actually made things hotter.

Pj S. Families - 24/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Stayed for two nights. Pleasantly surprised by the spacious modern reception area and the comfortable bar and restaurant. We used the pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room and all were clean and well maintained. Breakfast was buffet style and plenty of choice available and the service good. The room was small for four of us, but we expected that with a double and a sofa bed and we thought it still gave great value for money. Good location for museum and grassmarkets and only a £5 taxi from Waverley station.

Jeff Families - 23/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Enjoyable stay. Pool a bit small and have to book which we couldnt do as too busy. Didnt like the sink being in the room and both the shower and toilet having mirrored glass so you can see people showering. Rather have a seperate room. Busy breakfast time but staff very efficient to seat us and tidy up.

D R. Families - 22/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The staff on reception and in the restaurant were friendly but not resourced or supported to cope with a full hotel. We booked a room of 3 but set up for 2. After 4 hours still not prepared. The rooms were not as clean as would have expected.

Very friendly staff good location

Jim Business - 22/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I choose this hotel regularly and will continue to choose it in future. The welcome is always good and staff are friendly and helpful. But my 2 night stay last week was a bit disappointing. On both nights I had tried to order food from room service but on the first night I was toand they were too busy to take my order and on the second night there was no answer. I ended up using Deliveroo instead. On the first night of my stay there were also no milk sachets in the fridge, which I only realised when I made my morning cup of tea.

One night stay. The hotel is on the sight seeing bus route which made it very convenient. The pool was a big hit with small child breakfast was really good with lots of choice. Would stay here again.

Hotel, room and restaurant all nice, good location. Unfortunately pool area too small, changing room tiny and dirty. Chlorine levels in pool so high my daughter couldn't stop coughing and my eyes stung!

A very enjoyable visit for both my wife and myself.

Gina R. Families - 20/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Breakfast was terrible , had to queue I’ve never been in a hotel and had to queue for breakfast . One waffle making machine with children operating it why don’t you just do pancakes and waffles on the hot breakfast buffet, one juice machine so another queue, I had to go hunting for a falk while my seven year old sat on her own eating breakfast. Managers asking everyone if everything is ok when they should be managing staff and allocating tables . My opinion you have a large reception you have plenty of room there for another 15 tables if you make the reception smaller . The pool is tiny and the chlorine was so strong my eyes were streaming . This is an honest opinion from a single parent I expected better from a 4 star hotel .
