      location, comfort, nice people, and a wonderful breakfast eaten in an unhurried manner

    • Group of friends
      9.6

      Good location for the price, close to city bus routes

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      Great Location - very close to the Ocean Terminal, shops, restaurants; bus stop right at the door to get into Edinburgh. Room was a good size with a large comfortable bed.

      Very expensive "cheap" hotel - we paid £230+ for two nights for a room with a plastic shower curtain in a tiny bathroom and a basic (really basic!) breakfast

    • Older travelers
      6.2

      comfortable bed and pillows, large powerful shower

      walls very thin. Could hear man next door snoring all night long and very loudly!!. Breakfast poor choice compared to Premier Inn. Value poor compared to Premier Inn. would not normally pay £100 for a night given a choice. You only got the business because all the other budget chain hotels were booked up. Asked for double room and was given twin

    • Group of friends
      5.8

      Staff was very friendly and helpful.

      I had expected a higher standard for the money I paid. The variety at breakfast was a bit poor and guests are required to clean the table after breakfast themselves, so they were not really clean but disgusting.

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      Location was very good for local restaraunts and bars plus shopping centre and Royal Yacht Brittania. Used bus into town, easy and cost effective.

      Needs a refit, very tired and tatty in a lot of places. Good overall so still happy with choice.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Only there for one night but found it pleasant and relaxing.Very good value for money and the breakfast was very good,especially the sausages!

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Ease of getting into city center from hotel by bus, being able to leave the car once checked in

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Location,functionality of hotel.Clean & handy

    • Single
      7.0

      Staff were very friendly

      Bit grubby, lifts were dirty and grubby

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      Great location for shopping in Leith and a short bus ride to Princess Street.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Proximity to Royal Yacht Brittania and good public transport to City

      Breakfast was average but ok for the price.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Thought that the breakfast was quite limited in what was available. Addition of bread rolls, ham and cheese would have helped.

    • Couple
      8.2

      price very good. quick check-in & check-out, room always perfect, simpaty of the staff.

      parking in the hotel isn't enough for all clients, but they have other park on the other side of the road
