Great place to stay outside of the city centre, which is very easy to get too. The hotel is situated on a regular bus route and the journey takes around twenty minutes to get into town. I found the staff friendly and welcoming and I would stay there again.

We were between homes and needed somewhere to stay for two nights. This really did the job. The room was clean and at a decent price. We will be telling our friends and relatives about it should they need to pay us a visit.

We have recently stayed at this hotel on Business and are regular users of Premier Inns across the country. Receptionist being the first point of contact was very disinterested slow process checking in.

After an 7 hour drive from Northampton to Edinburgh I was looking forward to getting to my room ! The rooms were to the usual good standard as always from premier inn. The restaurant is quite small and I really suggest pre booking a table, don't rely on a table in the bar as this is also not that big.... More

Arrived after a long drive from London, checked in on line so very quick once we arrived. Room excellent, bed comfy. Excellent location for our relatives to join us for a get together. We all had a scrumptious meal in the restaurant. There was about 20+ of us and we're a bit rowdy, thank you Premier Inn for putting up... More

Our all female group booked five twin rooms in Edinburgh East in August. What we had last night was appalling. My room mate couldn't come, just as well because there was no single bed or room for one. Another friend went home thus giving a second person a double bed to herself. One couple had a mattress put on the... More

Exactly what we expected from a Premier Inn, basic but clean and comfortable. Good location with plenty of parking. Regular bus service into the city centre although we found the taxi service we used to be reasonably priced. The meal deal was well worth the money as the food was very good, there is a small extra charge on certain... More

All though a little way out of the CDB the hotel was a very pleasant stay. A bus stop was less than 50 metres from the hotel and the buses ran at regular intervals to the centre of Edinburgh. Breakfast was included in the tariff. We liked the hotels policy of Shh!

When we arrived the bedroom was bitter cold, we were informed that the heating was not working by the receptionist when she came to our room as we were a bed short and no bedding for the children's beds. An oil filled radiator was placed in the room but still cold. We complained the next day and we got another... More

Hi Sandra, I'm really sorry to hear the heating wasn't working during your stay. We have extra heaters on hand to help warm the room so it's disappointing these were also unable to help. We've now ordered additional heaters in case they're needed in future. Our team will always offer a room change when they're unable to resolve the problem... More
