Positive Reviews

Transport of delight

There is a new tram link to and from Edinburgh Airport and it stops just outside the Indigo. How cool is that! The railway station, too, is only half a mile away so, generally, traffic access is good. If travelling by car, the parking facility is a bit of a walk but there is always the 24 hour NCP nearby.

More food for thought and real convenience stores

The Turquoise Thistle Restaurant is great for enjoying traditional dishes but, if you want to spread your wings and maybe save a few pounds too, restaurants of many nationalities are nearby. Tip! There is a great buffet style restaurant on Waverley Bridge and it won’t take shopaholics long to find the shopping centre – just round the corner from the hotel.

Little extras add up to a great visit

Rooms are decorated to a high standard with maximum use made of every inch of space Little touches such as the free minibar with juices, water and milk are really appreciated and with the Playhouse Theatre and shops galore just down the road, everything is picture perfect.

Negative Reviews

A hole in the net: and out of step access

The internet is very slow and this becomes more annoying when it is suggested that there is a quicker alternative available – at an extra cost. The stepped entrance to the hotel is an impediment for disabled guests, although there is separate, more suitable, access.

No sound of silence

There is a lack of soundproofing and the rooms that are most prone to this tend to be near the lift or air conditioning units Some rooms are also disappointingly dark and small. Lower floor rooms particularly, suffer from outside traffic sound and even footstep noise.

Cold Comfort Food

The atmosphere at Afternoon Tea is minimal, cold and doesn’t cause a stir! It’s not bad – just not as good as you would expect here.
