My wife,myself and two kids had an overnight stay in this hotel over the Easter period. There was a shock when we got there and the receptionist advised us that we had supposedly only booked a twin room...............not ideal for four people.............but after checking she advised it was all ok!
The room was clean and spacious and had a fine view over Edinburgh.
We ate from the carvery which was standard fare and plenty to go at. The service was friendly.
After a decent sleep - broken only by a random idiot in an adjoining room shouting at his kids (nothing the hotel cand o about that) - we hada nice buffet breakfast.
The swimming pool is small - but fine for a quick dip and there is also a sauna/jacuzzi.
Overall this is in a good location for getting into the city centre - and is right next door to the zoo if you ae planning a visit there.
This is a nice hotel and I would recommend staying there to anyone

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Peter30 Bad mannered guest.
Another excellent stay at this hotel. Food superb in Sampans restaurant. Breakfast excellent with plenty of choices. Our room was the usual high standard. Clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful.
The only down side on this occasion was one extremely rude male guest.
While enjoying a drink on Sunday afternoon when the bar was quite busy, a gentleman sat with his feet on the table, not resting against the side but flat in the middle of the table.
It was obvious that other guests found this behaviour unacceptable but the bar staff appeared totally oblivious.
They walked past his table several times and not once did they say anything to him.
Not what I expected from the otherwise brilliant staff at this hotel.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 Generally good
Overall, our stay at this hotel was good. The room was small but fine for the money - clean, comfortable well maintained. The hotel was in a handy location with plenty of buses to the city centre. It was very busy, but there was no real problems coming from this. The only negative was that our room was located at the front of the hotel with the loading bay (and rear of kitchens/bar) below. Because of this there was only one morning of our four night stay that we were not woken early by noise; 7.30 am Easter Sunday morning employees emptying bottles in the containers below. One morning a delivery lorry at 7.15 am dragging cages of boxes across the pebble dash loading bay, another was 7.30 am and the refuse collection truck. The other morning it was 6.15 am someone disposing of something below the window. A nice stay here, but if you find yourself this side of the hotel, don't expect a lay-in!
(Chinese restaurant across the road was excellent!).
