          It was clean and tidy

          Over priced at £140. Very noisy room. Staff seemed to complain a lot (it was very hot though). The staff smoked and talked outside our open window. The bedding and towels smelt of cigarette smoke. We had to clear own table for breakfast, the staff just wern't going to do it. Breakfast was average. A drunk guest hit our car trying to get out of small car park. We were going to be changed more unless we payed cash. They ignored our request made when booking. Worst hotel ever stayed in.

          friendly stuff.

          Room was very very unclean, and we all three guest couldn't eat a breakfast, dishes were also unclean, and for example one morning we have got cheese out of the due date. I think no matter that there is cheaper than in other hotels, a shower like in the plane, but a little cleanness have to be.

          The staff were friendly and the breakfasts were good and plentifull.The location was aproximately twenty minutes walk from the town center and on the main bus route

          We stayed for three nights and felt the room should have been cleaned,and tea making facilities replenished at least once,but was not.

        • Group of friends

          Friendly staff and a cosy place to stay

          Some small booking problems, but they were fixed quickly

        • Family with children

          It was value for money. The rooms were excellent - clean, spacious and comfy. The bathroom was comfortable too.

          Came with my elderly parents who found the steep stairs to the dining room very difficult to navigate. Also, the lady who greeted us on arrival was somewhat rude and unwelcoming. She first told us we'd arrived too early and that our room wasn't ready (even though we'd informed the hotel well in advance that we'd be coming in early), made us wait - tired and hungry - for about 40 mins..once the room was ready, and we were starting to settle in, she then informed us that that was not our allocated room and that she had made a mistake!!! Our room had been ready all along!! An unpleasant start to say the least..

          Paula, the owner was very welcoming on arrival. She really went out of her way for us letting an extra guest stay with us for no extra cost. We were going to a concert at murrayfield and the bus stopped outside the four seasons there and back. Great value for money. If we are ever going to a concert there again, this is where we will be staying. There was also a huge treampoline in the garden for the kids.

          the best think was the breakfast, was complete and enough, the room was good, big and bright

          the bathroom was dirty and we couldnt get to the hotel until 12.30 because it wasnt ready

          On site parking

          Bathroom was dirty, used glasses, still with toothpaste from previous user. Plughole hadn't been cleaned. The kettle they supplied didn't work, luckily had our own. From our room had a view of the garden, which was unkempt and cluttered with rubbish.

          Difficult to say what we liked. I believe the only good thing was that it was actually in Edinburgh !

          We have travelled all over the world and we have never experienced a more filthy, dirty, disgusting "hotel". There was bird mess all over the floor by the windows. The beds were filthy - ridden with bed bugs. It was so bad that the guys even felt bad for the girls and bought them some blankets to sleep on! We could not stand to spend a minute in the room when not necessary - it really was the sleeping quarters - and that was too much time! Whilst we had no problems with the staff, it was obvious they had a lot of attitude. We booked as a last resort due to last minute planning and availability (this was literally the last place available in the city and now it makes sense why....). In hindsight, I would have preferred the inconvenience of staying 20 miles outside of Edinburgh and commuting in. The owner "Mr Khan" really needs to learn to invest if this is to stay open for business. I would not recommend staying here to my worst enemy.

          Car parking available.

          Very expensive for what it offers. Poor continental breakfast. I was originally given a room with no en-suite having booked one. I was then questioned the following day as to why I was in that room. (In fairness it could have taken 4 people and I was on my own, but sorry, that was not my problem.

        • Older travelers

          Good location for sightseeing

          We were told that we were double booked and were given a room in the basement with no oulook and without a private bathroom

        • Older travelers

          Location is good for visiting Edinburgh. Lower price. You can leave the car at the hotel and walk to the centre, the Royal Mile and the Carlton Hill.

          Old facility.Lower class hotel, we were waked up by a young singing young men in the middle of the night. Internet (mobile) was not working, but we could temporary connect our laptop to a hard wired line in stead. There is no permanent security and you have to collect the key on the other side of the steet and also go there every time you need assistance (except during breakfast when there is permanently sombody).

        • Couple
          7.8

          Location was great, 20 minute walk to city centre. Room was comfortable, good breakfast in the morning and manager was quite a character, very helpful and put on a cooked breakfast as it was the weekend. Hotel was quiet even though every room was booked and we were given keys to the main door so that we could come and go as we liked.

          We booked a double en-suite but were told on arrival that the shower in our room was not working so we had to use the shared bathroom. Shower was extremely weak and needing replaced.

        • Family with children
          5.4

          The hotel staff was extremely helpful to make sure our stay was comfortable. She offered us to use the common bathroom though we had a en suite. The hotel have the potential to be one of the classic B&B as it is not so far away from the city center (half hour leiserly walk) but on the quieter side of the road. It boasts a fantastic garden. Thaks to Paula from the hotel staff who was really helpful.

          The hotel lacks basic maintenance. We were locked out of the room and could not get through with keys. Had to nudge our way in. En suite bathroom was shabby. Garden can be looked after.

          The lady in charge was very polite and very helpful with directions and local knowledge.
