Convenient digs. Ideal if your on a budget. Friendly staff. Ideal for workers. 2 min taxi ride to nice selection of bars and restaurants. Free parking. Wi-fi available. Supermarket round corner. It is what it is.

The room had a good price but it was very basic and it wasn't easy to go around a find something to eat. The worst thing was that I wanted to have a shower at 11 in the night and guess what? The shower wasn't working!! Of course there was nobody around to ask for help since the reception was...

This has to be the worst room I have ever had the misfortunate to stay in, small, grubby, the shower was obviously added after as it was just a shower unit in the room, there's no way it could've fitted in the bathroom! (btw no bath!). I was in Edinburgh on business the room was actually booked for me by...

If you are looking for a low cost hotel with no frills that does exactly what it says on the tin then this is the place for you. It's a bit out of town but the bus routes are excellent with various services covering all areas of the city as well as a night bus. My biggest problem was the...

The exterior is lovely. Great location for us. Good private parking. Very quiet location. But the words of the room were like paper and we could hear all from the other rooms and the hall. But The room super out of date! The carpet was dirty, with stains every way. The window do not close properly. The room has a...

This has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I'm a firm believer that you pay for what you get however my stay in this hotel was far worse than what I expected. They run their hot water on a timing system so if you jump in the shower outside of their timing you will end up...

A basic hotel within walking distance of the city centre (15 mins). The rooms are simple but do have ensuite shower & toilet, TV and coffee/tea making facilities. The beds are firm and comfortable & the room was a very pleasant temperature. There is WiFi available at £3 for the whole length of your stay, but is quite slow &...

This hotel is undeniably an affordable place to rest while visiting Edinburgh. It's close to a bus stop and taking a bus to the city centre is really easy. However, the room I got was facing the roadside and it was terrible. I could hear sirens from police cars or ambulances passing by every now and then, at the very...

Well we stayed for 3 nights, we ha to change rooms on day one as shower didn't work, new room was cold drafty and after the first night the toilet didn't flush(due to air lock from fixing showers) I think hotel is a very stretched description and for what we got it was expensive!!!

Very unwelcoming. On first impression of the room it looked lovely looked clean...decor abit dated. Beds comfy bedding shocking..no mattress cover and sheets wernt fitted so sheet moved as you moved leaving the mattress bare. The duvet very thin and no filling in parts. Room on main road if curtains were at window it would block out a bit of...
