Decent enough hotel, close to the city centre, with free parking. Room was clean, if a little small and basic, but to be honest, we were here to have a night out, and I slept very well after a few beers! Floor boards are a bit creaky, and the bathrooms are small, but overall i slept very well here. Breakfast...

We first selected this hotel because it had free parking and was close to the city center and the holyrood park. Also, the price looked really good for the city. The room was quite small but clean, the bed comfy and the breakfast rather good. What makes our stay special would the service! People were kind and quick to help...

Came here for a nights say for my partners birthday and bonfire night. First arrived and was very hard to find the entrance/front of the building but all in all a good stay but was very disappointed that the place and the rooms didn't look like they did on the photos, and the price was to high for one night...

My wife and I stayed here for new year. We struggled to find the place or rather the entrance which is not clear if you come from Arthurs seat. This is a conference centre in the halls of residence but is a brilliant place to stay. We stayed 2 nights, the rooms are excellent, the common areas are fine, staff...

the hotel is in fact converted from ex student accomodation and at the time of visiting was still being decorated. However the rooms were clean and fresh and the breakfast excellent with a great selection of both hot and cold . We also ate in the restraunt and can whole hartedly recommend this for the qualirt of the food

I've given this hotel/ B &B a four star review not for the double room that I stayed in for one night, which was small but clean, but for the convenience of the location and the bountiful breakfast which awaited me the next morning. The hotel was receiving some renovating while I was there, the main hallway in fact, it...

Our room although basic had comfortable...
