Positive Reviews

Hidden Gem

It isn’t often that in the midst of a city trip for business or pleasure, one would consider a stay at what is ostensibly a budget hotel This is one whose budget designation is misleading, however With its nearness to several Edinburgh attractions and points of interest and its amenities being more than adequate, this is one budget destination that’s more of a bargain.

Super Staff

While it should go without saying that those working in the service industry are supposed to make your experience a pleasant one, there is nevertheless a difference between a minimal requirement and truly fabulous treatment As friendly as can be and unable to help you enough, you’re sure to be raving about the staff of this hotel to all of your friends and family.

A Touch of Old and New

While the hotel has stylish, modern furnishings, it is in fact housed in a nineteenth century stone building which served as a maternity hospital once upon a time With its accessibility to Edinburgh and its price, having so much history just adds to this hotel’s value.

Negative Reviews

Housekeeping Hang-Ups

Although you’re always looking to safe on the inevitable cost of essentials when travelling, no one wants to be short on things such as toiletries, coat hangers or working channels on the TV.

Stuffed Into Small Rooms

One negative aspect of staying in an older building tends to be its room sizes. A onetime maternity hospital was, in all likelihood, not ergonomically designed for comfort and relaxation and that’s worth considering before you check in.

Too Close for Comfort

Whatever your reason for staying near the city centre, you may be disappointed to find out that your ten minute walk is not enough of a buffer against hearing street and traffic noises in your guestroom.
