“Outside city centre but good for airport”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

The Novotel Edinburgh Park is set at the edge of a large business park close to the motorway. We stayed here overnight at the start of January before a flight from Edinburgh Airport which is about 10 minutes drive away, after booking a bargain deal on a last minute rooms website.
Our room was a reasonable size, if a bit small and with a nice, spotless bathroom. We stayed during the high winds and the glazing didn’t let in any draughts, and only a little noise – understandable because the building is quite exposed.
The swimming pool was a great bonus. It wasn’t the largest but was quiet and a good temperature. The changing rooms are quite small too but I’m guessing they wouldn’t have too many people using it at once.
We had an evening meal in the restaurant/bar area – being the 2nd January, it was fairly quiet and only the bar menu was available, rather than the full restaurant selection. However the food tasted great and the restaurant itself was stylish.

Booked online at really good price also booked the breakfast online nice hotel with some cool design. Swimming pool and gym included in price. Was easy to find from train station. Room was fine very comfy bed, tv and very clean. Staff at breakfast really helpful and pleasant. Breakfast offered every type of breakfast you could imagine and high standard. Two stops on the train to Waverley Station in Edinburgh. Would recommend this hotel have nothing negative to say. Check-in was fast and efficient and again pleasant staff. Will be going back next break in Edinbugh.

Room Tip: don't think the room matters as there is no good views motorway out the front of the hotel and r...

We stayed here one night when in Edinburgh for a rugby international. Although it is a bit out of the way there are regular trains to the city centre from the railway station right next to the hotel. Rooms were excellent with a very comfy bed. We did not have dinner at the hotel but the breakfast buffet was of quite a high standard. We would go back to this hotel again.

I have visited the Novotel chain before. Pretty generic however, extremely good value. I found it quite easy to find. Check in was fast and efficient. Room was lovely! One of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in!!! Nice bath/ shower. Excellent choice at breakfast, cooked English breakfast, plenty of veggie options, cereals, toast, jams, pastries, fruit, yoghurt, juice, tea, coffee etc. it's a buffet style so can help yourself to as much or as little as you like. We ordered room service one evening, which was reasonably priced. Arrived promptly and was all home made fresh and hot! Delicious! Portions were massive too! We used the swimming pool and steam room. Nice to relax. Towels are supplied and require a pound to use a locker, which is returned. Can get the lift straight back upto room aswel. The first noght we got a taxi into the centre costing £15. The cab driver was lovely and very helpful ad it was our first visit to scotland. He recommended we went to george street as it is more exclusive, we went for a lovely tapas meal at cafe andaluce which was excellent! Then onto le mode at shanghai for champagne cocktails! Was a lovely romantic evening. When in Edinburgh we got the train from Edinburgh park which is a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Took about 10mins on the train and it takes you central, we hopped onto a tour bus for £12 each however we could get on/off As many times as we liked. Visited the scotch tower, castle, childhood museum, obscure illusions place (can't remember what it's called exactly but it's right by the castle) Edinburgh has soooo much to do! Needs several days to visit properly. I would recommend this hotel as it is just on the outskirts of the city centre, but the price reflects this.

Lovely warm pool with towels provided. Gym looked good but didn't go in. Great breakfast. Good rate for family room booked and paid for in advance. No hassle to go out to this hotel from centre of Edinburgh on the train, and more for your money when you get there than staying in town as long as you are not looking for character.
