“Weekend city break - good place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

Good standard of accommodation, friendly staff, explained everything very well. Room size adequate (family room, kids beds stored under main double) - I've been in bigger rooms but to be honest we only slept there so it didn't matter! Evening meal very nice, good red wine on offer for £10 a bottle which I thought was good for a city centre restaurant. Breakfast efficient and well cooked, good choice of continental breakfast as well. The hotel is close to Princes Street, you could walk in to the centre of Edinburgh, we didn't as we had young kids but it wouldn't be a long walk. We did OK for parking as you can park in the street outside and the meter doesn't charge you after 6pm on a Saturday up to 8am on Monday morning. Other than that there's a local multi-storey round the corner, that would have been a little less convenient and more costly if the hotel had been busier and we couldn't have got a space outside.

Overall, very happy, would stay again.

overall positive experience. Spot on location for the old town area, royal mile, scottish national museum, grassmarkett.
Friendly staff, did help us when our family room was not on day of arrival by relocating us to another one straight away. This was a child friendly hotel.
The hotel has no parking on site but drivers will get a discount for the local multi-storey car park from reception.
Good breakfast. We ate at the restaurant twice and found it quiet and nice.

Stayed for 3 nights, slight hick-up on rooms but duty manager and staff were excellent on resolving situation. Very good location for city- we were on vacation. Meals OK . Look for offers - include breakfast.
Had a nedical emergency at 1 in the morning, yet again the duty staff were excellent. 5* service.
This hotel bats well above the average!

Room Tip: Higher rooms quieter

This hotel was good value and really comfortable.
The bed was huge and cosy.
Staff were really nice and very helpful. Were able to check in early at 9am which was brilliant.

Its close to Grassmarket and Castle, really good location but still quiet. Everything was well within walking distance.

One thing i do have to say is that the number 35 bus does stop very close but it takes a while to get to the airport. A member of staff told us it would only be about 40 minutes to the airport but it ended up taking 1 hour 20 mins and we only made the flight by 5 mins. Not his fault obviously but beware, if you are getting this bus to the airport, give yourself 1.5 hours. I would just walk the 10 minutes to the airport express bus.

Dear Sir

This should be the benchmark for your operation. Fantastic staff, great food, very comfortable room and a brilliant location. We even had a courtesy call the day before asking if there was anything that could be done to make our stay better!!

We cannot fault a thing. This is the sort of service and quality other hotel chains must and should be bloody envious of.

Room Tip: The beds are vast, as per usual at Premier Inns. 2nd floor not too noisy from main road
