Situated in the centre of Edinburgh, the Motel One Edinburgh-Royal is 5 minutes’ walk away from the train station, and only half a mile from the Castle. Guests can reach the historical St.

Score from 1415 reviews Very good
Our stay was very comfortable - the rooms were spacious, nicely decorated and spotless. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was a good size. Although we didn't have breakfast in the morning it looked/smelt very nice. There was also plenty of information on offer about things to do in Edinburgh and the B&B also has fairly reliable wifi which was a bonus.
It was further out of town than we expected - about a 30 minute walk, although admittedly it is easy to get to as you just follow a straight road out of town and you can get several buses instead.
Close to city centre
Main road.no parking.
Thanks nice hostess. Since I had to catch my train, I need to check out early. The kind hostess make a great breakfast earlier than usual time for me. A lot of thanks.
~15 min by walk of Pollock Hall in the university.
the staff, the room
breakfast should not be extra charge
The owner was very helpful giving directions and recommending a nearby pub. The room was lovely with a chandelier and free standing mirror, and although not ensuite, the bathroom was immediately next door. Handy for the city centre - just a walk away. A very enjoyable stay.
Would have liked to have had breakfast included rather than a paid extra but it was worth it.
Landlady & other staff friendly & helpful. Good size room and breakfast. On a main road but that meant lots of buses to town centre.
Slightly dated and details in bathroom needed repair/maintenance, but not a big issue.
Cleanliness and comfort. Sensibly priced single rooms Easy access to the City and main attraction Excellent breakfast
Very nice staff Super comfortable bed Tasty breakfast Very good price/quality ratio
The hotel is quite far from the city center (by foot) and there are very few buses by night The room was a little dusty (heavy carpets and curtains) Weak shower pressure
The shutters provided good sound proofing of the noise of the street.
Bus route into city was so easy. Taxi's in evening were easy to pick up and quite cheap for the distance. Room comfortable, but needed those little extras that we had experienced in other G.H.s on our tour. Food was very good and room kept very clean.
Shower needed new on/off tap. the (temp) repair looked like it had been waiting for some time. All though the add. gave the impression of three parking spaces, there appeared to be only two, and the parking around the corner, has left my car with several small dents in the roof, from falling conkers.
It was on the ground floor which we did not request but it was just perfect for my husband as he is register blind . The hotel is well placed in walking distance for finding a place to eat
Found the bed to small
Very squeaky floorboards
We had to leave before breakfast, and the staff prepared a carry away breakfast for us. This was very much appreciated. Room 8 faces Arthurs seat and the view is absolutely stunning...
Clean and very friendly staff comfort able . Close to transport .
The room was very pretty, nice and clean, it was quiet, the shared bathroom was usually available. The breakfast was included in the price and very good.
It's a bit of a walk to the centre, but buses leave frequently right outside.
Very lovely and friendly hostess. Room was clean and well presented.
It's quite a walk to the main high street but plenty of buses close by.
friendly, helpful, very clean
I loved the room n the cleanlines
Friendly staff Good versatile breakfast Good room
Internet connection was slow at times
the hospitality breakfast in the morning and we had to vacate room in the afternoon and are train was not till evening and they let us leave are luggage to collect later
the room we were in had creaking floorboards and we couldn't get the heating to work and they had no sugar available in the room for tea and coffee
The house is very traditional one. All furniture very victorian style, chandelier, high ceilings - beautiful! Clean and very light rooms.
Bathroom isnt in the room, but just outside it - right there though. Not a big problem. U have to drive around 10 min to get there from the city centre
Clean and friendly, good breakfast!
Friendly staff, helpful and polite. The room was clean - there was a screen between our room and the private bathroom which was beside our room. A good location, only a few minutes by bus/taxi from the centre of Edinburgh. No noise from the road. A comfortable room with good facilities (tea/coffee, bottle opener, tv with many channels, Wifi connection, double and single bed, full length mirror, table, lamp, chairs, and adjacent bathroom with bath, shower, sink and loo, as well as connections for hair dryers etc) Accepts cards. Dining room (though we didn't stay for breakfast). Small parking area outside (would fit 2-3 cars at most). Great value for the room, cheaper than chain-businesses and much much nicer!
Size of rooms were good, both had a double and a single bed, with views over the garden. Both rooms were situated at the rear of the property and really quiet. Our breakfast was cooked to order and nice and hot. Having found a bath plug there was no shortage of lovely hot water for my bath, and the heating in our room came on just after to keep me feeling cosy. On arrival we were advised that we could park on one side of the adjacent road without being ticketed. The buses run really frequently into the city, from across the road, a day ticket being £3.50.
Rooms had a rather musty smell, despite the presence of an air freshener in our downstairs room. The private bathroom, adjacent to our room, was nice but didn't have a bath plug. Luckily the one from the kitchen next door fitted. Apparently a previous guest had taken it. Also although a privacy screen had been provided, there was still a clear view of our bathroom door from the stairs opposite which I wasn't expecting. The top floor bedroom was stated as having a sofa and a coffee table, neither of which it had, which was rather disappointing as this was one of the reasons I had booked this twin room. However the use of the double bed more than made up for this as far as our daughter was concerned. It would have been nice to have been offered a greater choice at breakfast eg. poached or scrambled eggs, mushrooms, porridge or black pudding.
