Why it was awful: - Turned up and went to the welcome desk to two sets of guests complaining and even though there was two people working we had to wait till the two guests to finish, before we was greeted. - We was then given the room next to the only stairs which lead up into the floors even...

We were in room 17. The beds were comfortable, a double and single, the room was nicely decorated and a decent size. The breakfast room and lounge were pleasant and comfortable areas. Unfortunately the carpets in the corridors and stairs had not been vacuumed for some time. Maybe they are short staffed. The bathroom was a bit small and the... More

I booked for 5 nights but moved out after the second when I woke up in the middle of the night and discovered about 20 bedbugs munching on my body. My skin is still covered with bite marks as I am writing this review ten days later. When I told the staff at the reception, I got the usual answer:... More

Booked 5 rooms as we were traveling down for a family wedding, 2rooms were so small that the shower cubicles are in the middle of the room with no privacy. This "hotel" was dirty, even the main stairs up to the rooms looked as if they hadn't been hoovered in weeks. I would say the rooms had not been properly... More

We aren't fussy customers, as long as we get a good night sleep in a clean room-we're happy. But from first "welcome" it made us notice every little thing that was wrong. We had to ring the bell to get in to the building at 5.30pm, woman opened the door without talking or welcoming us, a man asked if we... More

I stayed here for two nights in September and what I saw in the photos on booking.com is exactly what I got. It was not overly fancy or stylish. But my room was clean and the staff were relaxed and helpful. The hotel is situated along Craigmillar Park with numerous other hotels. I would suggest using public transport to get... More
