I thought the hotel was really clean and some of the staff members were quite nice. They had parking too which was a pus in Edinburgh. And the free breakfast was okay - nothing great but still nice of them to provide.
There were a couple of staff members that seemed a bit rude on occasion. There were a couple times myself or another personI saw, had to wait while the girls at the front desk gossiped and giggled. Nothing crazy but just a bit unprofessional.

The hotel was good. It was very clean and overall the staff were nice. It was really far away from everything in the main city center, definitely not walking distance. When I booked, I wasn't quite aware of just how far away - I mean easily a $20 cab ride one way (with conversion rates). In the 5 days there I spent the majority of my money on cabs. Also, there's not really any shops or restaurants too close to the hotel. There's the Ocean Terminal but that closes early. ...read more

Staff was most friendly and helpful!
Location was not ideal.

Nice breakfast included. I normally shun hotel breakfasts, but this was good, and staff were friendly!

The staff was very helpful. Ocean Terminal was across the street, shopping & restaurants. Complimentary coffee, tea, and juice. Bus stop in front.
20 - 30 minute bus ride into town. Bed was uncomfortable, small room.

The staff was very helpful - suggesting restaurants, helping with bus routes, printing our boarding passes. The room was small and the bed and pillows were uncomfortable. The breakfast was fine, enough food to keep us going in the morning. Appreciated the complimentary coffee, tea, and juice. The bus stop was right in front of the hotel but it was a good 20 - 30 minutes into town, depending on the time of day. ...read more

price
bathroom; weird door arrangement that closed on two separate door frames; poorly designed and is a safety hazard (my wife smashed her finger on the interior door frame)

overall good experience, conveniently located near bus stop and mall for restaurants and shopping; would stay here again and will recommend to others

Price and free breakfast.
Proximity to downtown Edinburgh.

Booking 3-star hotels in Europe can be interesting because you never know what you are going to get. In reality this is comparable to a good 1 or 2 star hotel in the states. There was nothing overly wrong with the place it just wasn't up to 3 star standards for this traveler. The good: price, free breakfast (which wasn't bad), Edinburgh city bus tour stop across the street. The bad: to far from downtown Edinburgh to do anything but drive in or go across the street and take a tour bus into the city and cab it back after hours; also the bed wasn't the most comfortable. My advice if you want to be "in the middle of the action" of Edinburgh stay somewhere else. If you want a clean, fairly inexpensive hotel and location isn't your number 1 concern stay here. ...read more
