Chose this restaurant to meet friends on holiday from Australia. Viewed website and it looked a really nice bar. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! what a shock when we arrived to a dingy, dark bar with most of the light bulbs missing - in all 9! I wanted to run out but had already made the arrangements so had to run with it.

Stayed for 3 nights middle of July. Overall, you get what you pay for. We paid around £50 per night for a double room Friday-Sunday. The room was tiny, enough room for the bed, and space to just walk around it. In much need of a lick of paint or two, and the bathtub could be doing with replacing! Room... More

We were entirely misled by the funky pics on the website. This very downmarket hotel promises a 'contemporary, individually decorated room, tv with dvd and power shower'. We had to drag a very heavy suitcase up a long staircase - no offer to assist us despite the fact that we're almost in our 60's. The decor consists of badly sawn... More

My partner and I visited the Meadows hotel restaurant in June 2012 with a voucher (Groupon type) for a two course dinner with a glass of wine. The “restaurant” is in fact just the bar area with a few tables / booths. Really not that bad but we were expecting a bit more of a formal affair. When we arrived... More

I had previously visited the restaurant and enjoyed our meal with the food being excellent and also good value. However we visited on 4th July and the restaurant was empty. There is a new menu in place and I found the choice very limited. One meal was returned as being very bland and changed for another dish and mine was... More

Booked in to attend a wedding at Edinburgh Castle and were told our room had been trashed the night before, we had booked five months ago. However the girl in reception found us somewhere else to stay for the night, but by then we were very upset. We won't be back!

I stayed here for a conference because it was inexpensive, described as a boutique hotel, and away from the more touristy area. It's about a 15 min walk to the main area (near the National Museum of Scotland). The room was quite small, and really could have used a chair or something to put stuff on (no desk or couch... More

We have given the place 3 chances and we won't be back. The place changed hands/name last year. Under the old name the bar offered good food and although never packed was always busy.
