« Edinburgh Fringe stay »

I have stayed at this hotel before and had excellent service. This time the service fell a little bit short of excellent due to the number of guests. The rooms were clean and well maintained and all the facilities were clean. The only issue was at breakfast where some items ran short and were not replenished quickly enough. Not a major issue and I'm sure just due to numbers. I know that the Festival increases prices, but I paid more than 6 times the price I had paid in March for a lower quality room.....:(( However, I like the location of this hotel and always stay here when I am in Edinburgh.

« Executive Room, but still rather basic »

Friendly staff, good food, room adequate but bed and pillows not very comfy. Served the purpose. Good location but will probably not stay again.

« another great stay »

Great stay, nice breakfast, lots of sleep, and the staff as usual is what makes this place... Colleen.. Alice.. Irina the guy in the bar who's name I can't remember (sorry!)... Only complaint is that the shaving/make up mirror is designed for someone about 6'5".. gotta have SOMETHING to grumble about :-)

« Very pleasant stay »

Extremely good reception service - staff friendly and professional. Hard working staff at breakfast

Jocelyn B. Friends - 11/08/2019 AccorHotels review
« Great stay with a comfortable room. »

The staff were very helpful and everything we asked for we were provided with. The room was big and comfortable although I didn’t like being given a disability bathroom. The bed and pillows were good and the coffee & tea making facilities were also good.

« it was splendid »

Everyone was extremely helpful. As a wheelchsir user the room was ideal. Didn't use the catering facilities - next time maybe?

« Busy, about time for a refurb. »

Staff were all great. The hotel itself feels a little tired. In particular, the breakfast experience was not as good as at other Novotels I've stayed at - mainly because it was so busy and the dining facilities were not up to it. The rooms were okay, but in need of a refurb. In particular, the duvet and pillows did not match up to the quality of those at a Premier Inn. The other annoying thing is the fact the staff at the neighbouring Premier Inn were crashing about in their service yard early and late, but I guess that's not anything you can do something about!

We all had an excellent stay. All staff were extremely polite and helpful. Rooms were laid out well. all facilities clean and well kept. We only had Breakfast at the hotel but plenty of choice and all nicely cooked. it was out Daughters 18th Birthday weekend and it was such a nice touch that they decorated the room with banners, ballons and some sweet treats

« Overall, it was just lovely. The room and all public spaces was delightful »

Novotel in Edinburgh was a beautiful. Much more than I expected. BUT, you have a front desk women there who was extremely unpleasant, unsmiling, and frankly rude. I do not know her name, but she said she was new, and she had long brown hair. All other staff was delightful.

« Good central hotel »

The hotel was very nice and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in room 448. A couple of minor things about the room, the light switch for the bathroom mirror is a bit faulty and sometimes didn't work. We found it unusuall to have the toilet separate from bathroom but you still had to go to the bathroom to wash your hands.

Sue Families - 06/08/2019 AccorHotels review
« We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Novotel Central Edinburgh and each and every member of staff were very helpful, efficient and friendly »

From the moment we arrived for our 3 night stay until we sadly had to leave for our return journey home we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All staff were very efficient and friendly and went out of their way to help us and answer any questions we had. The hotel was perfectly situated and the facilities were great. Many thanks for making our stay so enjoyable!

« Below average »

The front desk person who checked us in was very unfriendly and unprofessional. Could be more welcoming and pleasant.

Anonymous Business - 04/08/2019 AccorHotels review
« OK »

Nice place, very convenient location. The ventilation in the room was not very good and it got too warm and very stuffy. I had to keep the windows open at all times during the day and throughout the night--a real problem given the noise of the street--made sleeping difficult. The gym is too small and underequipped. The breakfast was pretty good but a bit of a crowd to negotiate. Some the staff at the front desk had rather harsh accents (not Scottish) that made their English difficult to understand.

« Good »

« Nice hotel with poor housekeeping »

The room was booked for 4 people, but was only prepared for 2. We had to delay our daughters going to bed because the sofa bed hadn’t been made up. We raised the issue the next day and all that happened was that a few extra towels were delivered: no extra toiletries and dirty dishes were left in the room.

« A perfect stay in a perfect Novotel !! »

The hotel is very well (executive rooms with castle view are beautiful, very confortable and bigger than others hotels and it’s pets friendly). Near all the places To see in town, it’s a perfect spot for a family. But the real value is the kindness of all the staff of the hotel. Thanks to all for that !! When I will come back ... I will stay here. Special think for the director for his help.
