We stopped here for just one night on a tour of Scotland. It was actually pretty close to the City centre. The car park was nice and private and it felt secure as the area had a cctv camera monitoring system. Our room was small but we had asked for one overlooking the car park so it was our choice....

Go to a different Inn some of the staff I think could not give a hoot,but the breakfast staff were helpful and friendly and did try to help.The receptionist staff need all the guidance the management can give them,but to be fair when his back is turned I guess they can do what they like.

We stayed here after the Edinburgh Marathon and it was an ideal choice. The roads to it from the Marathon end were not blocked off. Very clean and friendly staff. We didn't use their restaurant but reviews were decent and it looked good. We had a good nights sleep and were very impressed with the service provided. Including a large...

Perfect central location for those without cars, comfortable beds, good sound proofing, practical soap dispensers - I always find these silly little shampoo bottle sets an annoying waste of plastic, and I like the way you slot your key in to switch the lights on and off in this PI location to save power. (different from some others I've stayed...

A regular user of Premier Inns, I know that the catering can be varied. Quite frankly, the restaurant is nothing short of appalling. I was with a group of 6 colleagues, only half of us managed to achieve breakfast. There was only 1 waitress and despite doing her best, she was overwhelmed. It took a full 45 minutes for food...

This Premier Inn is an ideal location at a great value price. The buses run immediately outside the hotel and are really frequent, 15 minutes into centre of Edinburgh. Get the Lothian Buses App its ideal. The standard was the uisual great standard for a Premier Inn. Had the Meal deal once and both breakfast and dinner were excellent at...

At least five busses that go to City Centre are within steps of this hotel. Very convenient. Also, two express marts and ATMs are within steps and can make change for bus or provide cash. Very clean and secure. Staff extremely helpful. Have patience with free wifi. It kicks off every couple of minutes, and requires re-submitting. Very frustrating.

This is a fantastic place to stay if you want to see the sights of Edinburgh. Lovely restaurant next door and a short bus ride into the centre, we have stayed here often and it's a good base for getting into the city centre. Whether you want to go to a show at the theatre or to the Christmas market...

I was in Room 101, which was a bit odd to say the least. If you have mobility issues you would not want this room because to get into the room once you have got through the doors you have to descend several steps. Also, it was in a corner of the hotel that would be difficult to access. I...
