Positive Reviews

Good quality rooms

Although some guests thought the rooms at the Mercure Edinburgh Quay were fairly compact, most found they were of a good standard. The beds are often described as comfortable. Plus, guests love the addition of the Apple TVs, along with the reliable Wi-Fi.

Appealing location

Guests tend to appreciate the location of this hotel. Although it's set back a little from the city centre, this means that you'll be spared much of the associated noise. And when you are ready to explore, you'll find there's plenty to see and do within a reasonable walking distance of the hotel.

Enjoyable dining

The breakfast attracts lots of positive feedback from guests, many of whom mention that there was plenty of choices and the service was good. Compliments are also made about the general quality of the restaurant and bar. Plus, guests who ordered room service found this went smoothly.

Negative Reviews

No on-site parking

The lack of on-site parking bothered some guests. If you take your car, you'll need to source a paid parking space in a public facility. These facilities aren't too far away but it might feel that way if you have heavy luggage with you.

Temperature is occasionally uncomfortable

A small number of guests had difficulty working out how to control the heating and air-conditioning, leading to some fairly uncomfortable temperatures. Also, some guests comment that they were unable to open the window.

Limited tea and coffee supplies

While far from a major concern, a couple of guests mention that they found the supply of tea and coffee was a little too meagre. It's easy enough to ask for more, though. Some guests would have liked to see some hot chocolate sachets on the hospitality trays too.
