Fantastic service from the get go, arrived at the hotel to find out there was a mix up with the kinda room we booked, we had booked a twin room but the hotel had us down for a double, and it was sorted on the spot with no fuss. Considering how busy the hotel was I was concerned it wouldn't...

A very friendly and busy hotel on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Helpful staff, well appointed rooms and good food. Highly recommended as a base for exploring Edinburgh. Good public transport. Buses run every 10 mins. only 20 mins from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

We stayed for two nights at this hotel whilst visiting St. Andrews University, just 50 min drive away. Half way between the airport and city (about 17 min drive in each direction) and very convenient for the Forth road bridge which was about an 8 min drive away.

I stayed at the Capital for two nights when in Edinburgh on business. Located in the west of the city on Corstorphine hill the hotel enjoys fine views to the west with glimpses of all the Forth bridges. There is a large car park which is most useful as the hotel is not on a main thoroughfare. The staff on...

Despite the fact that they have a lift, there were still stairs to negotiate on the way to our room. Older style rooms but very clean. Good sized rooms at a budget price. Parking on site. Bus ride to the city centre takes about 20 mins and was fairly cheap. Good breakfast was included.
