People booking this hotel should be aware that when the website says 'ample on street parking' this is £2.70 an hour, max stay 4 hours. Otherwise ok, our room was clean and pleasant. Breakfast is only available 8-9.

I stayed for one night in a single room. Was clean and staff were nice. Only downside was, shower and toilet was separate from the room. But hey it did the job and you were central to everywhere which was an added bonus.

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton

There is on street parking. It's free at night but you have to pay and display through the day. Its quite hard to get a space at times though
