“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

With the location, the hotel is truly value for money. The station, central market and parks are all around the hotel. Very centrally located, it is more of a business trips hotel, not really much for a family, the pub at ground floor is little noisy but the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Will go back to Jury's inn Edinburgh if we are making the trip again. Cheers

Arrived 10.30am in the hope that we may have been able to check in as some peoples comments claim that they did but no luck. We were offered a closed room to put our luggage in which was locked and only opened by the receptionists. Tickets were given that needed to be surrendered when your claim them back. We registered in and was asked to come back later of which was not a problem as we were going on a bus tour of the city. When we returned we were given room 208. A double and single bed and a fair sized room with tea/coffe making facitlites. My friend looked for a iron and board wwhen we arrived of which there was none so we called housekeeping and one was brought five minutes later.
Everything was very clean in the room and the bathroom again a good size with toiletries supplied.
We only stayed one night but both had restful sleeps as the beds/pillows were comfortable.
Some people have said in comments dont stay at the front of the hotel or the back but we found it very quiet.
The Royal Mile is just behnd the hotel with Waverley Train station just across the road. Very central and would be happy to stay again.
Breakfast was a bit crazy but a good selection.
Staff very polite and informative when aswering an questions.

Upon arriving in Scotland, we were told that the Inn had overbooked our reserved room for the night. Luckily they sent us to the Hilton for the first night, then we returned to the Inn for the second night. Sorry, after spending a night at the Hilton, it was all down hill. They more than tried to make up for the inconvenience, the food was good but the room was very small with a view of a wall. But I must say that I would probably stay here again because of the cost and the location being so close to the Royal Mile.

Room Tip: If you're not spending much time in the room, don't worry about it.

3min walk from the Waverley Train Station, 2min from the Royal Mile, Cross the Bridge and your on Princes Street plus the hop on/hop off bus stop is located at the front door... for a tourist this hotel location is fabulous!

The rooms were small but comfortable, clean and new. The breakfast was great and we wouldnt hesitate to stay again.

The staff were great, but the room was small, even though we paid a little extra for a bigger room with a view. The view was a car park and Waverly Train station. We only ate in the hotel once, because we are poor students. The only saving grace for me was the amazing little tea room right behind the hotel called Forsythes! Went there every morning for a cheap, wholesome breakfast! And the lady who works there was the friendliest woman in the world!! And she sold the best marmalade I've ever tasted! This tea room and the location of the hotel (right behind the Royal Mile) were the best things for this otherwise mediocre hotel.

Never stayed in this chain before but when I booked it suggested that the normal rate was over £300 per night. I was charged £58 which is about all it is worth. It really does annoy me when the rack rate of a hotel is so unrealistic.
Arrived late with no heat in room to be told that there must be a problem with radiator. I was given a space heater which on closer examination was 400 watts about the equivalent of 4 light bulbs! The heating came on at 5.30am - it woke me up but was off again before 7am. I suspect therefore that when i had complained in the evening it had actually gone off before I arrived rather than being a fault. Had the joy of a luke warm shower at 6.45 but noticed the water was really hot by the time I left just before 8.
Breakfast ok but one up from school canteen in terms of ambience and service - £300 a night.
Complained when checked out only to be told that the heating should have been on during the night.....
If you want good value suggest you head for a Premier Inn or something - at least they are honest.
Will not be using this brand again not because it is poor value - for what I paid it was not - but because I am fed up with the hotel industry over hyping the quality of it's product.

Stayed here twice - and the second time was most definitely by mistake. I'd forgotten how bad it is. The staff are (mostly) fine but that's all. Best avoided - nothing else positive to say about it. Rooms are Premier Inn basic but not as good and certainly more expensive.
