Stayed here for two nights during half term with our 12-year old twin daugthers. We live the Premier Inn because you know in advance what to expect and it never disappoints. The rooms are incredibly cheap yet clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast costs about £8 per adult (with kids eating free) and you can eat all you want from a wide selection of food on offer. The £22 meal deal (three course dinner and breakfast) is a must if you are on a budget. The Haymarket is close to the railstation of the same name and on a direct route from the airport. The hotel is about 10-15 minutes walk to Princes Street or the Lawnmarket which means that it has a great location. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to families visiting this great city.

I'm a reasonably frequent Premier Inn guest and generally have good things to say about them. Edinburgh Haymarket has up til now been my 'brain off' choice when in Edinburgh for short business trips. It's fairly inexpensive, clean, friendly and efficient.

Last night I got a pleasant surprise - the iron WASN'T shackled to the ironing board (as if Premier Inn expected every other guest to be a cheap steam iron thief). It used to be. I have to confess - Last year I blogged about the frustration of being treated like a criminal when it came to ironing my shirts at Haymarket P.I. It seemed I ruffled a few feathers and was heartily 'flamed' by one or two commenters who I suspected were connected with P.I.

Well, whatever the reason behind the decision to stop chaining their irons to ironing boards, I say 'good move Premier Inn' :-)

As always, had a good night's sleep. The wi-fi didn't work (to be fair the lad on reception told me this was likely even as he sold me the £3 card) and they removed it from my bill on request the next morning.

The one thing I think is worth noting as a negative was the quality of the breakfast. It was soiled (in my view) by one thing - cold plates, cold food. There's nothing more unppealing than a cold fried breakfast. I left mine. Easily fixed, P.I. - I hope you can just throw the switches and heat up both food AND plates.

And the coffee (dispensed from giant industrial urns) is not just so-so, it's well and truly awful. Hot water and big standard Nescafé would be preferable.

So, sadly, down a notch or two and mainly on the quality of the breakfast which means I'll probably aim to find a new (perhaps a little more expensive) place to stay.

Very good value for money, rooms were very clean & beds comfortable. All the staff were very helpful with directions & storing our luggage. Booked with Superbreak and asked for a quiet room but unfortunately we were given two rooms facing the busy road. I found it hard to sleep due to the traffic noise but to be fair the member of staff booking us in on arrival mentioned the Premier 'Good night sleep guarantee'. As all other aspects & the location and meals were pleasing, I felt it was unfair to complain when the hotel cost is so reasonable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the busy road

BOOK THE PREMIER INN AT MORRISON LINK AS THE LOCATION WAS CLOSE TO EVERYTHING WE WANT TO SEE. Breakfast was great value, rooms where very clean car parking was £16 for 48 hours which is reasonable, on the whole we enjoyed our stay and would have no proplem recommending the hotel. Only 1 fault one lift was out of order and the other only held 4 people so a slight wait for a lift.

Room Tip: If you have Kids ask for rooms 101 - 131, 201 - 231, 301 - 331, 401 - 431
