Lovely clean room, friendly staff and a decent location in the city too. The room was lovely and the tea/coffee facilities were cute too offering Mars Bars. The rooms were warm and comfy although the bed moved around the floor which provided something to laugh about! The bed was comfy though! Shower was lovely water always hot and clean. Overall...

I got this weekend as a birthday present for my brother. It was his sixtieth birthday. His feedback was great, he loved the room if a little too small. All the staff were very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. I am disappointed that he never got breakfast as I had booked this, it's also

On a recent trip to Scotland we chose to stay at the Cairn hotel primarily because of its location and the great price we got! If you are looking to chug into Edinburgh at the Waverly railway station this place would prove a good choice...it's about a ten minutes brisk walk from there (not so convenient if you're flying in...it's...

Room was smallish but had everything we needed. And a couple of Mars bars/treats along with the tea which was a nice touch. Quiet location which was central enough. Not the shortest walk to the castle but nice to get to see so much of the city en route so didn't mind. Breakfast was a little disappointing but did the...

Great hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Clean. Very central, just 10 minutes walk to Princes Street, there is also a bus stop nearby to go everywhere you want. The room was small but great for the money we paid.

So on the map kids it looks closer to things...but it is quite a hike. Don't get me wrong there is a great park just across the way and the staff was great, the room was nice....but the walk. It is a bit much. Look closer if you can!

Great hotel. Staff were really helpful and informative on local attractions. Our room was small but had everything we needed and it was newly decorated. The shower was fantastic, just what you needed after getting caught in one of the many hail showers. Beds were really comfy. The breakfast was amazing lots of choice, all self service. We were really...

My daughter and I stayed in a twin room that looked as if it had just been refurbished - bright and modern as well as spotlessly clean. The staff were really friendly, attentive and helpful.
