Clean and quiet, great location, but no parking

Oct 6th, 2020

The place is very clean and quiet, the staff is helpful and patient in answering any question. The location is great, just a few minutes from the castle and Waverley station. There's also a pub just below the rooms, which is very nice and serve very good food. Being during the covid pandemic, we felt very safe staying at this accommodation. Just a suggestion, bring your own hairdryer if you think you'll need it, because due to covid you can't borrow one from them. We only had a problem: parking. On Booking we read that there was parking available, but it turned out that they don't have any, you just have to park in the city, which costs £25 per day. They didn't offer us any other option. As parking is free during the night (6.30 pm to 8.30 am) we solved the problem by bringing the car to a park-and-ride (which are free) during the day and taking a train back to the city centre. Very annoying, but much cheaper since we were only 2 people. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Had a great time during my time here. The place was very clean and the staff were extremely welcoming and lovely. Also loved the bar, which had a fun atmoshpere. Would definitely come back at the next opportunity TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

We checked in late as we had driven up from the Midlands after work, but wasn't a problem at all. We struggled to work out the parking situation with the staff, we were unable to find a car park open so late, so decided to park on the street and leave before the 8.30am cut off for free parking, not ideal with arriving so late. The room was very basic but fine for what we needed it for, the location was very central which was good. The reason for the 'Average' rating is mainly the issue with the parking, and although the booking wasn't expensive, we found that we got a lot better value in other accomodations throughout Scotland on our trip.

Great stay in the perfect location

Sep 22nd, 2020

Came here over the weekend for a city getaway. Couldn’t have been happier with the service from check in to having a few drinks the bar. The rooms were impeccable and we were very happy with the compliance with current regulations (as you can imagine we were wary of how it would be), our private room might have just been above the bar smoking so as to be expected we heard a bit of noise till late. The staff could not have been more helpful with recommendations when wanting to see the city, and were generally just friendly and attentive. Had been recommended to stay here by a friend from before the current climate and would recommend to anyone thinking of visiting Edinburgh now. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
