The location is the most significant advantage of the hotel. It is not at all a luxury one, but it is quite a good place to have a comfortable sleep in an isolated room with your own toilet and shower. Also, there were a kettle, teabags, coffee, and some sugar. It is worth noticing that the bed was comfortable.

Room was all I needed for an overnight stay and was extremely clean with a more than adequate supply of tea and coffee - most impreiveed. The bed was very comfortable.The reception staff on checking in and out were very friendly as were the staff in the restaurant. The food was plentiful, very tasty and very fresh. All this only a short walk from Princes Street and at a reasonable price means that I will probably stay there again.Minor I know but in my single room, the en suite had a very tiny sink with a shelf immediately above it and it was impossible to bend over to brush teeth / wash face without hitting the shelf.

It's a university facility actually, and visitors are mostly mature people, academics or senior students. Very very pleasant. The breakfast was included and it's open-buffet with sufficient, tasty selections. This would be the only place I would like to stay in my next Edinburgh visit. Highly satisfied.

The breakfast was amazing! The location is simply excellent.The only facet of the accommodation which is below standard is the shower in the bathroom. It is impossible to shower without getting drenched, and without drenching all the other parts of the bathroom. At the least, a new shower head needs to be fitted, which is flexible, and can be removed for additional use.The price of the accommodation has been consistently raised each year, and is now less good value for money.

The breakfast was good.There was no lift and it didn't say this in the review. I have a badknee and climbing up stairs is not good. The shower was the worst showerever, apparantly its called a wet room where the shower is in thebathroom in a sunken floor. The shower head was so high up that you justgot drenched cos there was nowhere to go and the floor of the bathroomgot soaked. Awful terrible shower.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were small but adequatefor a one night stay-The hotel is a bit confusing at first. This is not a normal hotel, but apparently part of the facilities of the University of Edinburgh. As such, it doesn't look like a hotel from the outside and it has some perks (but if there is someone on the reception desk when you arrive, you should be fine).

Everything the rooms,food and location were all verry good.Having to walk outside to reach the dining room. Although it has to be said it is only a short walk, but if the weather is dreadful then one could get soaked. Wasn't too keen on the wet room as it was very small and it was difficult to control the spread of water on the floor.

Room was basic bu t the breakfasts were goodUnfortunately we had to haul heavy suitcases up to the 4th floor, nolift was available. Our room only had one skylight window that didn'toffer much air circulation so the room was a little hot and stuffy. Theshower in the small bathroom took some managing as you had to shut offthe shower to soap up and wash your hair else the soap was washed off inthe downpour. It was a good shower just a bit tough to manage. Finallythere was a bit of a celebration going on until late one night and quiteloud from across the way.
