    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    They charge so much for breakfast on top of your normal stay but didnt even serve egg. Due to covid-19 they only served grab and go, they only had a limited menu. Choice for breakfast was bacon bacon or bacon. Pathetic right? When asked for an egg omlette of fried was told they don't serve it, and only offered a veggie sausage which looked like a veggie patty! Breakfast choice: bacon roll, cereal, crossaint, yogurt, orange juice, fruits and coffee? Is that what you call a buffet? The hotel is in the middle of nowhere. Very run down area. Wouldn't recommend.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

    Nice clean hotel, rooms could have been done with being a little more spacious for family of 4. Breakfast worked well with the geab and go option and social distaning made accesible with layout of communal areas. Excellent location for getting into Edinburgh city centre. Ex
