Positive Reviews

Glorious Breakfast

The breakfast here attracted favourable comment such as “plentiful and of excellent standard”, it is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the stay.

The Staff are Troupers

A guest found every member of staff excellent It was a busy weekend with several parties booked in, staff were all courteous, friendly and good fun. The chef had a lovely dry Scots sense of humour! The desk clerk was great, very friendly, and gave good information, just what was needed, obviously someone who is very good at his job.

A Good Place to Be

The hotel is within fifteen minutes of Princes Street. So much to do in this wonderful city, with a cheap all day ticket for buses: perfect to get to the zoo and castle. Listed buildings are quirky for finding your way around with the twists and turns, and rooms varying in size.

Negative Reviews

Overdue For an Update

Not only the TV system could do with an update. In the bar area the furniture is uncomfortable and dated, and where is Sky Sports? A business traveller whose company uses Hilton hotels comments: “I cannot think of a worse Hilton in Europe. Run down, dirty, terrible housekeeping, sad furniture, questionable room service. Staff are polite and try to be helpful but understandably sheepish and ashamed ”.

Bathroom Blues

The bathrooms are often poorly laid out and tired. Guests found a broken shower rail, handle and damaged door. Towel rails in two rooms, although connected to the electrics, were stone cold and could not be turned on. Getting into and out of the over bath shower can be dangerous.

The Wrong Atmosphere

The lack of air conditioning leaves the rooms very stuffy, paradoxically the place has a very cold, bland atmosphere. There was no room service available after 9 pm although the brochure said 24 hour room service.
