A gem outside the city!

We arrived very early before check in and went and had a coffee in the breakfast area, then within a couple of hours we were told we could check in early. Which after a long trek up we needed our bed! The bed was enormous. Two singles attached well together. Very comfy as well. Great size rooms, big bathroom and it was all in great condition and very clean. Breakfast was discounted to £10 each but had plenty of choice. My partner being a vegetarian still had plenty to choose from as well. Cooked and continental. The staff were all fantastic and couldn't do enough to help. They were chatty and friendly and so polite. The pool, sauna and steam room are lovely. Shame there isn't a jacuzzi/ spa. We didn't use the gym but looked good. Yes it is a fair way from the city. Took about 15-20 minutes on the bus. But there is a huge car park if you have a car. Plus I think its free. All in all a lovely place, great staff and we can't wait to return soon. Thank you everyone!

Great Location

It was a great location, away from the city centre but with great bus links it was great for me. The staff were very helpful which was good. The only downside was the cleaning staff, I wanted to keep my towels but they changed them everyday which was very annoying. Also there was no soap in the room.

Use the mass transit system in the city, there's a bus stop 4 minutes away from the front door and it will take you to the heart of the city!

Great for a quiet stay in Edinburgh

Situated halfway between airport and city centre makes this hotel a great choice if you like quiet locations. There is a fantastic bus service (26) that runs every 12 mins from just around the corner from the hotel and is only £1.50 each way. The staff are very friendly and the hotel is worthy of 4 stars (though it is only 3). Breakfast & evening meals were wonderful. We would gladly go back there again.
