Hotel room had a lot or wear and tear. Carpet, furniture and lighting badly in need of replacing.  However the bathroom and bedlinen were spotless, which helped me overlook the tatty room.

Powered by AI

Travelodge Edinburgh Dreghorn receives commendation for its clean, comfortable rooms equipped with welcome amenities like tea and coffee, though it doesn't escape criticism for a somewhat lackluster atmosphere. The hotel's location is celebrated for its convenience to Edinburgh and public transport, yet the absence of on-site dining is noted. Friendly and responsive staff are a highlight, although service inconsistencies occasionally surface. While some guests relish the quiet, noise can be an issue for others. Views on value and room cleanliness are mixed, with some suggesting improvements are necessary.

Overall a good night's stay. Great sleep which was the main aim of the stay and while the accommodation was good, there were a few areas of improvements that could be addressed.

Main issue was the cleaning. Although the room was clean, the edges of the carpets/vinyl flooring at the door frames were dirty.

In the rooms most hotels now have USB charging points but none were present here. Lastly, a socket or 2 at the beds so the phones can charge and still have an alarm that does not mean getting out of bed would be beneficial.

We were very fortunate in that we only paid £27.99 for the nights stay so the value for money is not likely to be surpassed. Had we paid £50+ for the room I might have expected more , like a decent sized TV but for what we paid I would go back week after week.

We found the hotel room in good condition with a lovely matress and great shower. Starbucks next door handy for a quick coffee and snack to wake up with. Only continental breakfast available in hotel so if you want a full hot breakfast you will have to research best location for you. With a lot of workmen using the hotel starbuck can be busy early on but usually quieter later. The hotel teak were very pleasant and helpful. We thus had a comfortable sleep in a clean room and enjoyed our stay.
Room was warm on arrival and had a good heater so the bad weather did not affect us

The price was great and just a stone throw away from the city centre. With the number 16 bus taking you in to The centre(Princes Street) for £1.70 single. Day ticket is £3.50 and there is also a night bus(N16)that will get you back on the hour after midnight until 0400. The bus stop is about a 7 min walk down the road from the hotel.

The room was clean and the shower had amazing power with a large head, just what you need after a night out on the town.

The location was handy but the room was freezing every night even though I kept turning the heating up, the bed was so hard it was like sleeping on wood leaving me in severe pain, the sheet had a dirty mark on it and the bath that was *cleaned* had hair and dirt in it and was totally gross and the bathroom was always freezing cold. I complained to reception on my first morning who gave me an extra duvet but the room was still cold and the bed was still hard. I complained again when I left but apparently there was *no record of my first complaint*. Travelodge really need to start doing a *good night guarantee* like premier inn and up their game so their rooms are up to a decent basic standard (like warm, clean and comfortable).
Oh and take an extension lead if you like to charge your phone anywhere near your bed!
View out the window of trees was nice though

This Travelodge was very cheap at only £27 for the night but anything is too expensive if you don’t get a wink of sleep, it’s noisy or at least our room was, you could here people coming in and out and doors opening and closing all night and people walking past the room at all hours.
The room itself was ok, it had the kettle and cup thing but the bed was very soft to the point of being uncomfortable, the remote did not work the volume on the tv which was too loud, the pillows were not nice, they were hard, there was a wet patch in the middle of the carpet, perhaps where someone had been sick as it smelled a bit odd in the room and there was only one socket and no usb chargers at all. The guy on the desk was polite and nice but they have a security guard, sitting at a desk in the hall downstairs? Very odd, no covid measures in place as far as I could see, no cleaner wondering about wiping handles etc, nothing! But the have a security guard, weird!

I had a 2 night stay over Friday and Saturday evenings. I was up in Scotland to ride my bike and I called the hotel before booking to confirm they would allow a bike to be taken into the room which they did. I then booked online and then phoned them back up to request a ground level room. I paid £25 quid a night because of Covid and everything being shut. I could not have any complaints at this price and I would probable pay up to £45 in the future but anymore and I would look for somewhere nicer with a restaurant attached.

We stayed here as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) for 4 nights. The location is handy for getting in and out of Edinburgh City centre and also for accessing the motorway. The reception staff were very friendly and welcoming. There is a handy vending machine in the lobby, containing drinks and snacks, and there is also a Starbucks next door, which was great for grabbing a coffee before heading out for the day.

Our room was disappointing, however. It was facing the motorway and very dark. The carpet was very dirty - I noticed when we were leaving one morning that they had a robot vacuum cleaning the corridors and I wonder was this used on the room as well, because there were definitely areas of the carpet that looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a long time. The king bed wasn't made up properly, the sheets weren't tucked in the whole way round so as soon as we got in to it, the sheet pulled down and exposed the bare mattress. We had to strip and remake the bed ourselves as the duvet was also put on sideways. The website states each king bed comes with 4 pillows, however ours only had 2 and they were quite small. With that said, the bed was quite comfortable, so once we had the sheets and duvet sorted it was pleasant to sleep in.

We left the tag out on our door to ask to have our tea topped up, and when we got back that night there was fresh tea/coffee sachets, and also a pile of towels (which we hadn't asked for) left on the bed. However, the beds hadn't been made, nor were they on any of the other days of our stay. I'm not sure if it's company policy not to have the beds made daily but it seemed a bit odd. When we pulled the bed out from the wall a bit to re-make it, we noticed that underneath the bed was absolutely filthy and there was mould on the wall and carpet.

Overall, the hotel suited our needs in terms of being a base where we could sleep at night and leave our stuff while we were out sightseeing, but I don't think I'd stay again for more than one night.

My kids and I stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel staff were friendly and gave clear information regarding my stay. Hotel was lovely and clean and adhered to all COVID requirements.
There was no room service due to COVID but could get fresh towels or anything from reception at any time

I used to think that once you had been to one Travelodge you'd been to them all, but of course this is not the case. The one at Dreghorn, in my opinion is above average and one of the better ones.

Check-in was quick and easy and the reception staff told me several useful things. The room was clean. There is Starbucks immediately next door which opens at 0700 each morning and if earlier than that, the next door petrol station sells a variety of sandwiches, Cornish pastries, and similar as well as having a Costa Coffee express machine.

The location is of course on the extreme outskirts of Edinburgh, just off the bypass but there are buses into town and it is located in a nice area.

Easy access to the Pentland Hills which can be accessed across the bridge over the bypass. A mere couple of minutes walk at most. There is also a big Morrisons hypermarket/supermarket just ten minutes walk away. Cross the road outside the Travelodge/petrol station into the Swanston Muir housing area, follow through into the new Swanston housing are and you're there. Really just minutes walk in a safe, nice area.

Downside? Depending on when you stay here it can be either moderately priced or expensive. August, the month of the Edinburgh Festival was in the high end.....but then just about everywhere in Edinburgh is.

This is the 3rd time I've stayed here, twice with family and once alone and I would return.

we arrived Friday evening everything as should be beds made up as requested. The room as the weather was very cold however, soon warmed when the heater was turned up. We then went off for a meal & returned quite late having to park at the top of the car park in a very dark area which could have better lighting Overall the hotel was good, clean & comfortable for the price paid. It is out of town but ideal for out needs

Bus 16 from the City Centre at Princes Street has a stop about a quarter mile from the hotel. It's an easy walk with a pavement along the roadside. Bus fare is £2.

Would depend which campus you’re going to but having said that, it’s not “ on the doorstep” of any of the Napier sites I’m aware of.
