Review states there is parking at the Hotel….. All of 15 spaces! If full a 5-10 minute walk to the nearest car park. Only 2 staff on the front desk, even at busy times and in most cases, one of them was either on the telephone, or engrossed in something ‘urgent,’ on a laptop, so we’re not helping those who were waiting. Says there is a pool. That is being a little ‘optimistic,’ as if there was any more than two in it at any one time, it would be nothing more useful than for a splash around. Jacuzzi setting at less than 5 minutes, so frustrating in having to re-fire it all the time. Then when you come out of the pool area, there is no way to dry your swimming costume, not even in your hotel bedroom! Not the best hotel experience I have ever had and would struggle to justify going back there again.

We had a great stay, hotel is well located and most spots are within walking distance. The pool and jacuzzi were a great way to unwind at then end of the day for all of us.

Happy stay.

Excellent facilities. Great staff. Unusual room layout. Open plan. Would have preferred a bathroom in a closed off room. Well presented though. Modern, contemporary and clean.

Great service well located

Well located hotel. The only downside was that all my kids wanted to do in Edinburgh was swim in the hotel pool.

Very well treated staff very helpful

The executive room was well furnished with everything needed for comfort. The hotel is located within easy distance of museums and pubs and restaurants in the grass market area. Everything in the room, lobby, lift, and breakfast area was very clean and neat.

Great family friendly hotel

Fantastic location with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Great stay for 2 nights with a decent view from the suite balcony but unfortunately was very disappointed with the quality of the sheets. Checked in to find brown streaks across the pillow covers and sheets. Housekeeping turned up very promptly but found that the “new” sheets were worse with stains. Had to return twice with all sheets having similar stains at which point we had to accept that all sheets would be in the same filthy state. This was not up to our expectations as a 4 star hotel and in the best possible room the hotel offers. Staff only offered a half hearted apology and nothing further. However, the WhatsApp feature was very helpful and replies were almost instantaneous. All other needs were met except for the issue with the sheets.

Well located , good stay , friendly helpful stuff, lovely breakfast

Nice hotel with a very good breakfast. Location is perfect to visit Edinburgh. Good pool to relax. Decoration of hotel is at the hallways a bit outdated (old carpets). Price/quality compared to other Novotel hotels could be better (due to the relative high price).

Sauna is out of work, pool is usless as the water has too much chlorine, the carpet is dirty in the room, breakfast is crowded, it is 15 mins to get a coffe if you want to get your breakfast between 9-10.
