I stayed with my wife and two daughters on 11th-13th March 2017 for two nights with a double and twin room. Rooms were comfortable, very quiet and warm. Only pointers: unfinished electrical lamps etc not all working and some requiring wiring again. Bar stock also needs replenished. Special thanks to a member of staff working the long night shifts, Robert....

There's no doubt that this is a 3* hotel as it is dated. When we first got there the room was cold as we had picked a room on the top floor (the only one available with a bath at the time). However! As soon as I asked for the heating to be put on, it was and the room...

The hotel is approx a 15 minute walk to the centre of Edinburgh and offers free parking. Room was basic but comfortable. Room was cleaned and fresh towels provided every day. When we entered our room we were greeted with a bottle of wine and some lovely Scottish Shortbread biscuits. Our room was in the old part of the building...

The hotel is located a conveniently short walk from Haymarket station and was easy to locate. I found it to be spotlessly clean, although the decor was cheap and a bit dated. The room was comfortable and spacious enough for my son and I, with comfortable beds, free WiFi and a flat screen TV on one wall. The only downside...

The place is billed as a hotel, however in my personal view I would put it down more as a very large B&B. I booked this hotel family room for myself and 2 boys for the Scotland v Argentina rugby test match. The hotel is in an amazing location for Murrayfield stadium (only 5 - 8 mins walk away). As...

We stayed at this hotel for one night and can't fault the service the room or the breakfast. The staff were very courteous and friendly.

One night stay for family celebration. Booked family room as all that was available and did not cost much more. It was huge! 1 double, 3 singles, a settee bed and 2 armchairs but still room was not crowded. Lovely big windows overlooking city to Pentland hills. Decor was a bit dated, curtains a bit faded but it was clean...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
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.
