Stayed at the Premier Inn with my family. Family room was spacious, proper beds for the children. It was lovely and clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We opted to stay out of the city due to the children, but would definitely choose this Premier Inn again if we were going to Edinburgh.

Lack of sleep due to noisy plumbing and ? Noisy neighbours. Food had what appeared to be human hairs cooked into the meals, also missing items from meals - they were not as listed and menus were not available to check.

Good value hotel which is a £6 taxi ride to the city centre. There were a few things which could have been better - e.g no plug sockets next to the bed. Rooms were noisy, particularly when adjoining rooms use their bathroom. Decent breakfast although cooked food took ages to come out.

For us a typical Premier stay albeit in a converted property instead of one of the modern purpose built buildings. Not high rise, which suits my wife who cannot use lifts. Of generally V good standard. Rooms well soundproofed and comfortable if smaller than the usual standard we are used to, and its major competitors. However this was not an...

Great place to stay outside of the city centre, which is very easy to get too. The hotel is situated on a regular bus route and the journey takes around twenty minutes to get into town. I found the staff friendly and welcoming and I would stay there again.

We were between homes and needed somewhere to stay for two nights. This really did the job. The room was clean and at a decent price. We will be telling our friends and relatives about it should they need to pay us a visit.

We have recently stayed at this hotel on Business and are regular users of Premier Inns across the country. Receptionist being the first point of contact was very disinterested slow process checking in. We had 3 rooms booked one of the rooms had no heating though we were not informed of this until I went back downstairs and spoke to...

Hi Heather, Thank you for taking the time to review your visit. It's unfortunate to learn that you were unable to enjoy your stay owing to the service you received and condition of your room. At Premier Inn we hope for our guests to enjoy a great night's sleep and I apologise that we failed to achieve this for you....

After an 7 hour drive from Northampton to Edinburgh I was looking forward to getting to my room ! The rooms were to the usual good standard as always from premier inn. The restaurant is quite small and I really suggest pre booking a table, don't rely on a table in the bar as this is also not that big....

Arrived after a long drive from London, checked in on line so very quick once we arrived. Room excellent, bed comfy. Excellent location for our relatives to join us for a get together. We all had a scrumptious meal in the restaurant. There was about 20+ of us and we're a bit rowdy, thank you Premier Inn for putting up...
