Certificate of Excellence
As its name suggests, Premier Inn Hotel Edinburgh Central (Princes Street) is situated on one of the most famous streets in Scotland, if not the world. All the delights of Princes Street are literally on your doorstep, while all the heritage and landmarks of Edinburgh are just a few minutes away. Stroll along pedestrianised Princes St to enjoy top name brands on one side, and one top notch view of the park on the other. Walk the Royal Mile to visit Edinburgh Castle, a destination steeped in history. Step out in style if you're coming to enjoy Hogmanay or the Edinburgh Festival. Then turn your feet homeward and come back to great food at our restaurant and a lovely comfy bed.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.

Staff were very friendly and chatty. One of the best nights sleeps I’ve had in a while. Clean and tidy and the bath was amazing. We would definitely stay here again. The food in the pub next door was also very good

Excellent stay in this Premier Inn, very comfortable room and great nights sleep. The only problem was the temperature of the scrambled eggs and bubble and squeak on the morning buffet. However this would not stop me recommending staying here.

I had a warm welcome, although I was pleased there was a member of staff as the automated checking wasn’t working. All the staff were friendly, the room was a decent size. There was a good selection of food for breakfast. The location was really close to the station, the castle
