On my arrival I was rudely met at reception. My train had ran late, no fault of my own and was then made to pay £10 as it was 11:05. Which is fine, but the tone in which my money was demanded was not pleasant nor necessary. I travel a lot and this is by far the worst experience I've... More

Fine basic hotel for stay in Edinburgh. Room comfortable and clean, TV worked, shower hot - so perfectly fine. Bus stop immediately outside the hotel so fantastic for getting in and out of centre of Edinburgh. Though everything in the hotel felt a little tired and worn - from the uninspiring (but adequate breakfast) to the decor.

I was more than happy with the merith house hotel during my stay. People complaining about trivial things really get to me, if it's the ritz you want, pay the rates! The staff were really welcoming (the lady that checked us in was lovely and helped as best she could in finding somewhere local to eat) and friendly. The room... More

If you can afford to spend a bit extra for a nicer hotel I would encourage you to do so. Merith House was adequate as a place to sleep (though walls very thin and could hear conversations/tvs/footsteps from other rooms) The room was cold but that could just be the Scottish weather. Breakfast was poor as one of the days... More

This hotel is like a Family Guest House. Is cheap but has a lot to be improved, like breakfast, service and rooms. Also it is not city center...1h walk maybe. The area is very nice and has a park in front to relax

I've no idea why there are bad reviews on here about this place. I had a pleasant stay. The staff were nice and the room I stayed in was clean, warm and priced to suit. The room had coffee, tea and a kettle, clean towels and a small but useable en suite shower. Thanks to the owners.

I booked this place hoping for a great bed and an elevator so I didn't have to lug my suitcase up the stairs(my 2 main reasons for booking a "hotel").

Stayed here for 3 nights and did our party great. Staff were approachable and helpful. Check in was smooth. Lady at breakfast was polite and brought tea and toast to the table. All staff friendly. Close to the centre and a bus right outside the door Will return and recommend
