« Another lovely stay here »

There are complaints that some of the Trip Advisor reviews are biased, sometimes written by "ringers",... well despite this review maybe appearing overly favourable, I am a genuine customer who just likes the hotel. The service is always excellent, from Jordan Alice and the team at breakfast, the guys in the bar (unless they're going through one of their heavy metal vibes with the music!), Daniel and the folks on reception... the pool is lovely... the room was great... the only thing missing was Colleen, and that's because she was on Holiday... but still somehow managed to leave a greeting card in the room.. see, that's dedication, that shows you what the hotel is about... they are all very Heartist. Only complaint is that it could be cheaper (no harm in asking) :-)

« Good hotel, bad IT system »

The hotel was very clean and there is even a swimming pool. The reception was always helpful and quite freindly. The hotel is not far from the old town, about 10 to 15 minutes walk because Edinburgh is anyway not quite large. The reason why I have to give 3 points less is, 1. I have checked out more than 12 days, but till today, no bonus points has been credited into my le club card which I have never experienced all over the world in the last 10 years. I have called twice, but the colleagues said, there is an IT problem, but so long time??? This caused 2 points less because it is quite wired. 2. The breakfast is only till 10.00 O'clock, which is very inconvenient for me. I would expect that it will be open till 10.30 or 11.00 which is popular at other novotels in Europe. I really do hope, the hotel could solve the "IT" Problems asap and redeem my points asap.

« Lovely stay overall »

Efficient check in. Clean, well appointed rooms. Excellent pool. One negative point was breakfast. Possibly understaffed. Plates not cleared away. Ice cold pancakes and took half an hour to bring fresh pancakes. Juice machine ran out and overflowing.

« Good location, good service »

This is the third year we have stayed as a family while visiting the Edinburgh Fringe. The location is very good — easy walk to the Traverse and the Book Festival in Charlotte Square. Other venues also easily accessible. Hotel is a hit with the family, with swimming and a restaurant that’s easy to get into. Good breakfasts. Well looked after by the staff.

« Great room in a quiet central location »

Easy check in experience with secure parking facility which is rare. Room was clean and spacious. Quiet location but still central enough to access most areas

« Brilliant yet again! »

Stay at this hotel 2 or 3 times per year, and love it. Great location, terrific staff, elegant bar area, good swimming pool and nice rooms. Couldn't ask for more!

« Amazing anniversary celebrations »

From the moment we arrived we were looked after by incredible staff. They catered for every need, making all four of feel welcome. My children (6 and 2) felt like rockstars after being gifted some soft toys and books. My husband and I were wowed with anniversary surprises waiting for us. We stayed in a suite which was beautiful! It was bright, clean and spacious with every amenity you would hope for, my favourite being the balcony to enjoy the evening on. Both the reception and housekeeping teams were very helpful when we had questions or required some help (toys may have been locked in a safe?!?). The food and drinks were fantastic and again the restaurant and bar staff were wonderful! The pool area was clean and well cared for we had lots of fun splashing around and I found the jacuzzi very relaxing with the colour changing lights. Overall, definitely worth a visit we won't be staying anywhere else in future!

« Fantastic »

I booked this hotel for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. Joanna went above and beyond with special touches (swan towels, red balloons, special made sign, card) to the room including an upgrade. They thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Edinburgh.

« Nice hotel »

Hotel is well located in the city center...close to the restaurants and entertainment places. Reception staff very welcoming. A minus is the very small parking that always is full ( or at least this is what they tell you). Breakfast quality could be improved. Overall a nice stay!

Albert L. Friends - 28/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Disappointing, We stayed with you for 3 nights , Our guests bed was never made and the fridge was never replenished with the milk that was used , the cups were left dirty on the table/desk. All in all for the price that we paid over £1400 we are not very happy.
