I used this hotel for an overnight stay for my drivers on a London - Edinburgh trip. The rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast was plentiful. There is free packing and the reception staff we're friendly. We would defiantly use this hotel again.

Check in was fine and friendly took a little longer than normal due to educating other staff on check in procedure. Room was not worth the £131 for the two of us to stay in. The housekeeper who had prepped the room had missed the dirty spoon on the tea and coffee tray and the room itself just looked drab,...

The hotel is a large one. It rather dominates the main road below but not in an attractive way. The hotel’s car park is limited in capacity but the car park of the adjacent Edinburgh Zoo is available free to hotel guests between 18.00 and 10.00 hrs. The reception area is wide and spacious, with the restaurants on a slightly...

Used this hotel for a short break with the children. Located right next to the Zoo was not an issue, it was quite interesting to hear the loins and tigers calling in the night. Easy access into the city centre from the bus stop outside the hotel. We did use the small swimming pool but the chlorine was a bit...

Once I had managed to check in with the English Second Language trainee who could not understand my very common British surname and was searching their computer for ages, overall I felt the room &breakfast were ok.

The room was spacious and bright with a comfortable bed and a fabulous view to the Pentland Hills. The bathroom was small but adequate.

We thought we'd have a short city break in Edinburgh and looked around for a hotel that was, close enough to the airport so the transfer would be short, and close enough to the city centre so we could visit during the days.
