Great Stay

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 25, 2008

I stayed here one night, the night before I was scheduled to leave on a tour. Because it was close Hogmanay the hostels all requirred 4 night stay minimum so this was the cheaper option for one night.
Maybe I'm just easy to please after staying in hostels for a month but I loved this hotel. For 50 pounds Sterling a hot engligh breakfast was included. The hotel had cable TV and a beautiful bathroom. It located right across the street from the second last stop on the Airport express bus, so I didn't have far to walk.

We didnt know what to expect as we had booked using the website as our guide.

We found it easily as the airlink bus from the airport drops right outside.

Certainly not as grand as the website makes it look. Our double room was small (the smallest we have ever stayed in) but adequate. Definitely no frills. Kettle and tea making facilities, en suite, tv. Unfortunately there was no remote control with the tv and the alarm had been set and we were unable to unset it, but that was a minor irritation.

Breakfast was your average hotel breakfast - cereal, tea/coffee, full English (opps sorry, Scottish) breakfast. Was looking forward to some porridge but none on offer.

Small bar with friendly barman and average prices.

Worst bit was being woken a couple of times in the middle of the night by the heating banging, and I am not a light sleeper.

£160 for two nights b&b was slightly more than we usually pay on trips away, but was comparatively cheap for Edinburgh and after all - it was only a base and did have the perfect location for sightseeing.

Unique Quality: Ideal location for sightseeing. Within walking distance of everything in central Edinburgh and has airlink bus stop directly outside.

Directions: At the top of Princes Street in the West End of Edinburgh.
