Golf & City Break
Excellent Hotel location for exploring Edinburgh as just a short walk away from Princess Street, with street parking outside (we were luck to park on two occasions right outside). Clean and comfortable hotel, with great breakfast. We were in Scotland for the Woman's British Golf Open which was held in near North Berwick, so this hotel was in a great location to exit the city with ease and also allowed us to enjoy a city break too. We will be back.

4/10 Fair

Car parking guidance not provided by staff. Room was stinking of new paint as I was allergic they didn’t change in spite of repeated request. Room very poorly planned and small. Bathroom shower taps were loose and falling. Bathroom shower didn’t have pressure. No stand for luggage. No restaurant in the hotel or room service available to have food at odd hours.

Avoid this property
If you are unlucky enough to get to deal with the daytime employees you are in for issues. When you check in if they tell you your room is downstairs ask for a refund and run. The smell to your room will not be pleasant and the futon they consider a second bed is fit for a jail. Room P1 downstairs looks very lively when you first get in but 10 min after you regret it. Bathroom is nice but you can only shower for 5 min before the bathroom floods. Not all rooms have been refurbished and even the ones that have been it’s 50/50 if your AC works. My wife had room 221 and the AC was broken and the staff replied with an apology and that’s it. No room change no discount. Nothing. One day my room door was left open by the cleaning crew after they where done. Unlocked all day. The response was an apology. That’s it. I would never stay here or recommend to anyone.

The room was excellent, large with a sitting room. There was three of us sharing and we all found the room very comfortable.

The hotel is migrating from a Crowne Plaza to a Voco hotel. For some reason these renovations meant that both the gym and the bar were unavailable. Our room was nice but the bed/mattress were crooked so sleeping was a bit uncomfortable. The staff were very kind and the included breakfast was delicious. A good location.
