Ok stay.

Mark R. B. Couples - 15/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The Mercure on Princes Street in Edinburgh is well located and was ideal for us. There were one or two things that did take the shine off our stay though: Our room (262) smelt of cigarettes (evidence of which was in the gutter below our room window, approx 10 cigarette butts). We did get our room changed, but it's still not acceptable to present a room to a guest when it reeks like that. I appreciate that in these times of COVID-19, we have to make allowances, but in my opinion, the 50+ minutes that we had to wait for our food in Scott's restaurant was a bit excessive especially as the meal itself could only be described as 'ok' at best! To mitigate eating at Scott's for a second evening, we had a room service meal - I had a chicken Korma which didn't come with the mango chutney as was stated on the room service menu and my partner had a pizza which she said had a stale base (not freshly made). We have used the Mercure Dolphin in Southampton on two previous occasions and had far superior service as far as both room standards and food standards were concerned. Don't get me wrong - the staff at the Mercure in Edinburgh were fantastic and could not do enough to help us out, but I do feel that the issues we encountered on our most recent visit may well give us reason to re-think our plans for accomodation next time we go to Edinburgh (to see our daughter who is at University up there). Kindest regards. Mark R B. (mb…).

Walls are very thin so could hear both rooms on each side all night, rooms are very warm and uncomfortable with heating off and our room was very loud with the main road outside for trams etc, rooms very dated so lucky if your in one that isn’t

The room was nice and the staff were helpful, we had free breakfast included with the deal we got so it did live up to the standard of a free breakfast, however we never received our toast and the breakfast staff on the first morning never came over when I tried to get there attention, however I understand they may have been busy.

Mervyn C. Couples - 10/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Although the stay and staff were pleasant, there was a complete lack of atmosphere in the bar and dining area. The rooms and corridors are clean but tired and in need of updating. The reception and dining area were cold because the street doors were not operating properly. That all said, I wouldn’t rule out returning to the Mecure for its location.

Tired

Steven R. Couples - 10/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Hotel is tired and rooms are in dire need of a refresh. Put on the 2nd floor with a castle view which sounds nice but the street noise is terrible and I was awoken with a busker right below the window in the morning. Bring cups, teabags, milk and sugar because you only get enough for one cuppa and its paper cups. Location is excellent though and the reception staff are good so it's not all bad.

great stay

Lindsay Couples - 09/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

2 night stay in a fabulous location. Hotel staff very pleasant and helpful. Our room was adequate, but could do with a refurbishment to improve it. Breakfast was adequate, but a disposable or wipeable menu would have been useful to show all of the options available- we were only asked "Full Scottish breakfast?" and didn't realise there were other options.

Well Located

Danny Couples - 09/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room was very basic and bland, expected better. Walls very thin, meaning the constant banging of other room doors keeps you awake as well as the heat in the room, even with the fan that was provided. Excellent service delivered from staff at check in/out.

Lee Couples - 07/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice hotel, excellent staff must give 110% for them could not have been more pleasant, food was excellent, if I had to be picky room could do with updating and more soundproof windows and heating control would be nice and parking quite far away but overall loved the stay and would go back again also recommended for Edinburgh stay

I am extremely pleased with my stay at Mercure Prices Street Edinburgh! The staff was endearing, polite, helpful and catered to our requests, even changed the room to a bigger one for us to have the best view- as we had requested in advance! We always choose Mercure Hotels when going on holiday in UK! Always centrally located and nice! Keep up the good work!
