I stayed for 3 nights due to business purpose. From the very first greeting until waving goodbye I enjoyed the staff's courteous, warm and professional treatment, they honestly are the best! The room was lovely, part of the hotels brand new expansion, flawlessly clean and shining (I mean housekeeping is doing fantastic job) and the location is ideal to move anywhere around town. They'll definitely be my choice no.1 by far on my next visit to Edinburgh! Thank you very much! Έμεινα 3 βράδια για επαγγελματικούς λόγους. Από το καλωσόρισμα έως την αναχώρησή μου δέχτηκα την καλύτερη δυνατή εξυπηρέτηση από το προσωπικό, τα παιδιά είναι άψογα! Το δωμάτιο τέλειο, στην ανακαινισμένη νέα πτέρυγα του ξενοδοχείου, πεντακάθαρο στη λεπτομέρεια! Τέλος η τοποθεσία στο λιμάνι είναι ιδανική για να μετακινηθεί κανείς οπουδήποτε στην πόλη. Οπωσδήποτε η βασική επιλογή μου στην επόμενη επίσκεψη στο Εδιμβούργο! Σας ευχαριστώ πολύ!

I had a one night stay here and for what I paid I couldn’t of asked for more. I think the lady receptionist was called Teodara and she was more than helpful when I asked her about the city. She is a credit too the company. Would stay here again if I visit the area again.

Stayed here as part of week visiting IHG hotels. We have never been before but found the hotel welcoming and rooms modern and comfy. We had dinner in hotel due to current regulations and enjoyed. The breakfast although take away in bags back to your room were still good, choice of sausages or bacon, plus tea coffee and pastries. Found staff really nice and thanks to Liz who checked us in and made us welcome and Scott too. The hotel is really well placed for shopping centre and royal yacht Britannia. We would stay here again if back in the area, as another bonus was parking was free and car park was secure.

Halfway on our journey home, we stayed here overnight and we’re not disappointed , even though we couldn’t eat in,there is the Ocean terminal shopping centre next door, were you can eat, whether it be a full meal or a snack and all the shops were open, breakfast at the hotel was an experience paper bags were supplied and you could get bacon and sausage sandwiches, croissants, butter , sauces, tea or coffee, loads of choice, Well worth it.
