Excellent4.0 / 5
Great hotel with basic amenities
It was a beautiful hotel and in a quiet part of the University campus, so close to the conference center and a few restaurants (mostly pubs and grills). The staff were courteous, rooms were excellent, their complimentary breakfast was excellent. They did not provide any toiletries in the room but we brought our own so we did not ask the management.

Nice location for walkers and outdoors lovers
This is a little bit off the main area, but very close to Holyrood Park which is nice. The park is a lovely area to hike, walk or for a more vigorous way to make your way to the Royal Mile. Bus service is relatively straightforward to get from Waverly Station to here (they run about every 10 minutes most days) and it is less than a 10 minute walk from the bus stop by the pool. Staff was very pleasant. Room is small but functional and clean.

The Shower Needs a Redesign
The shower design and size are big problems, because the lack of any barrier between the shower and the rest of the bathroom creates a mess every time one uses the shower. The breakfast was fine. The location is very good. And the front desk was helpful.

Would not stay here again
Although staff people were nice & helpful, and the food in the dining area was great (we had dinner there), the room itself left much to be desired. It was incredibly small--and the bathroom was like NONE I've ever seen: it was TINY--the shower, toilet, & sink were like one unit. The picture advertising this hotel showed a "normal" bathroom.

Dorm Room
I felt like I was in a college dorm room. Not at all what I expected. No real shower. Just a curtain next to the toilet w/ a drain in the floor. Small bed. Breakfast was good. There was parking available. Quite a walk to the center of town.
