Not in an upscale part of Edinburgh but this hotel was reasonably priced and good value. Haymarket train station right across the street as is a tram stop that can either take you to the centre or to the airport. Very convenient for both of...More

I booked a twin room for the one night, and it was only £60. We arrived early and were invited to leave our case in the hotel office while we went and explored the city. We were then greeted by a man on reception (I...More

Thanks for taking the time to leave such a good review, it's very pleasing to hear and I will make sure Richard is aware of your comments.
The hotel staff really friendly and welcoming. Checked in quickly and were advised on parking. Room was outdated, with loads of marks on the walls and hangers from shops. Fair enough asking to recycle, so 3 bins in the room. Mattresses were cheap and well...More

Good afternoon Rhiannon,
Thank you for the kind and honest review, we really appreciate your comments and are glad you enjoyed your stay here.

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
