Great location near railway station and wedding venue, staff very accommodating and buffet breakfast was great with a large choice of food and hotel very clean, this is our second visit and would definitely stay again

Great location and modern motel, clean rooms and friendly staff. The negative for me was that the bed was too hard. The breakfast was good, but not much to choose from. But I'm not complaining because the location made everything worth it.

We stayed here for 3 nights for a wedding at the castle. It is extremely clean and highly recommended. The location is right outside the train station and royal mile just to the back. Will definitely stay here again.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the

No they don't! We had a window that looked out at another window! No view at all. It was very claustrophobia.
