Score from 1456 reviews Fabulous
Room too hot with window shut and too much street noise with window open.
hotel has different rates for guests who order breakfast on previous day and other guests Iron And ironing table in the room were not working.
The location was awesome
A bit pricey but it was the festival to be fair
If you have baggage and/or a car this is NOT the hotel for you. Only buses and taxis can use road outside hotel and nearest place to park car overnight is over 15 minute walk away. It is really difficult and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Located at city centre with beautiful view of old town and Edinburgh Castle
Short stay (2 nights only)
Excellent location for all points of interest
A bit dated
Easy to get everywhere
No air con
Location overlooking the Edinburgh Eye
Rooms were too hot, even with window open. They looked out into a coutyard with the noisiest air conditioning unit I have ever heard.
Very friendly staff good position off hotel clean rooms great views close to shops , pubs and restaurants
Location is excellent
Staff weren't that friendly It looks tired TV didn't work very well, and few channels
The house kipping still my mony
Great location , castle view room excellent , good size and comfortable . Breakfast lovely and plenty choices . Good value . Will be back .
Cleaning good,location good,near train station,buses,tour bus also, I like it.
We r morning break fast your hotel but every day my table no sweetner sugar ,I ask every day your staff.
Great location, friendly and helpful staff, rooms were excellent, great breakfast
Location, and the staff with whom we had dealings were very pleasant and helpful
Although clean the room was shabby - bathroom door didn't close properly, shower very poor, some lights not working. Someone other than us used our toilet after we had checked in. We found the toilet difficult to flush and the person who had used the toilet in our absence also found this to be the case as they failed to flush the evidence away. Reported this to Reception. Repairs needed were also reported when we checked out. The cost for two nights was too high for what we got. We had paid a similar sum for a 4 star hotel in London West End the previous week. Mercure not worth what was charged and definitely not value for money.
Location was good. Bed was comfy
Facilities were basic, TV was old and slow, lifts weren't great. Very pricey for the dated look and feel. Wouldn't recommend.
Very Good location between railway station and the city.
Time of checked in was delayed for 2 hrs long. The room I booked is not equivalent to which I paid .I think it's a bit of discrimination because my English is limited.Ventilation of my room is poor, an odour smell in it. The door of wardrobe is damaged and needed to call for repaired. Basic toiletries is limited and only for one person used. But the other visitors are nice.
Checkin was late had to waiy
1. must choose a room, through which you could see the Princess Street. Then, you could see the fireworks at night. 2. breakfast, WIFI included
1. There's no loading area near the hotel, not convenience to family travelers with young child and elder people; 2. Very far to the parking area, around 15-20min walk.
1.Location from Waverly Train Station 2. Restaurant-Nice food and view
1.Bathroom 2. Furnishing-very poor-gives a feeling of worn out and very old. 3. TV too small in this day and age. 4. There should be a sitting couch in the reception or at least the chairs for an old lady to sit while check-in and check-out is in waiting or in progress.
No parking facilities
Good situation. Comfortable room.
Smokers standing on doorstep. Room 651 smelling of smoke Reception on 1st floor. Dining room very dirty. Food unappealing.
The location was excellent & the staff at reception were very helpful. Good selection at breakfast
The room was extremely hot but with the window open it was too noisy to sleep - no air conditioning, only a noisy fan. The staff at breakfast on the first day were a bit brusque.
The view of the castle
