We stayed in the lodge. Everything was very nice. Room was nice and tidy. Really appreciated the lovely sherry after a 4 hour drive. Bed was comfortable. The cooked to order breakfast in the morning was fantastic. Hotel location is very convenient to getting into town centre. You can catch a but right outside the hotel and buses run regularly until very late. Wold definitely recommend and would stay here again.

Very good little guest house, beautifully presented with lots of nice finishing touches. Super breakfast menu, wifi, and we didn't use the car from the minute we put it in their car park! The Marriott's couldn't be more helpful. We would stay again

I had read a lot of not-so-good reviews and was a bit worried about this booking. We chose it because it was a relatively reasonable price. Looking for hotels on an August weekend for the Edinburgh Tattoo, there weren't a lot of bargains. All the worrying was for naught. Yes, the place is old. Yes, the furnishings are dated. Yes, it's small. It is NOT a big chain hotel/motel in America!
All the staff with whom we interacted were very nice and very helpful. They made the hotel worth a return trip in the future.
The location is not close to the city center, but multiple bus routes have stops within a 1-2 minutes-walk from the front door.
The full British breakfast for £7.50 was very good. There was also a continental option for £4.

This suburb on the outskirts of the city center is a popular area for students and is home to some of Edinburgh's liveliest bars. The area offers fantastic views of Arthur's Seat, Holyrood Park's extinct volcano, and golfers can take in the views from Craigmillar Park Golf Club, which offers incredible vistas down the coast and across the Firth to Fife.
