      As it was a last minute booking I was not expecting much just a box standard room somewhere to sleep but I was more than pleasantly surprised, deco in the room was lovely, hotel was very close to the town, friendly staff and delicious breakfast. I alredy tried to re book for New Year - unfortunately the hotel is fully booked.

    • Group of friends

      The small number of rooms meant care was very good and hotel very quiet.

      staff very pleasant food very good rooms very clean and upto date would go back again

      no hook on the back of the bathroom door to hang your clothes

      staff were very welcoming and helpful

      limited car parking - although at least it had some and it was free

      T.V and DVD did not work properly.

    • Family with children
      5.8

      It is in the way of the Airlink Bus which make it easier to get into or from the airport. The room is modern and furnished to high standard.

      The room is small and kind of noisy. You can hear people in next room and corridor. The hotel is around 25 mins from the city and there are some road work in the way to there which make walking kind of hard specially if you have a pram to push.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      The staff were very helpful...our DVD wouldn't play in the room and we were switched to another room which was actually superior. Originally only booked for one night but, liked it so much we stayed for two!

      The location of our room was on th e ground floor by the front door and it was a little noisy later in the evenings as people came back from evening out. However, it didn't last too long.

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      The rooms and facilities were well kept and the hotel was spotless. Breakfast was good and we had a meal in the resteraunt which was very good.

      Great room -- Good location -- Attentive staff

    • Couple

      Excellent choice for attending a concert at Murrayfield, within walking distance, Staff were very helpful and knew the area well. Breakfast was excellent, would highly recommend.

    • Couple
      9.2

      The whole experience was luxurious, comfortable and relaxing which is exactly what I wanted.

    • Couple
      5.4

      Its interior is modern; toiletries were first rate; bus to airpor leaves form stop next to the hotel

      Rooms are tiny and brekfast is expenisive; most importantly with all its virtues it is still far away from being worth of its cost which are over the top. Unless you have some one else paying your bills I suggest to look for better and cheaper hotels near the city center.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      We loved the location of the hotel to all the important parts of the city.

    • Family with children
      8.2

      The rooms were lovely, well-furnished, and very comfortable.

      The restaurant (which was in the sister hotel right across the street, in and of itself not a problem) was poorly staffed when we went for dinner. The number and experience level of the wait staff was severely inadequate to serve the number of guests who were attempting to eat dinner - made worse by bad scheduling of dinner breaks for the staff at the height of the dinner rush. Of course, staff have a right to breaks - but don't schedule them for peak times!

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      This hotel was excellent with very helpful staff. Lovely breakfasts. The room was of a high standard with a super bathroom. Very close to the City Centre with free parking on site.
