        Great Base ”

        This is a good location almost on the river. Due to current roadworks/improvements in the area not that easy to identify immediately. Very clean, welcoming and helpful staff, good breakfast and car parking facilities on site. Unfortunately, a little noisy on the night we stayed with a very very loud snoring person next door - not something the hotel could little or nothing about.

        This is right next to Ocean Terminal, so good for shopping. When the tram link is completed, it will be the ideal location for anyone visiting Edinburgh. My only problem as someone with reduced mobility was the wet room - the water goes everywhere! But still thoroughly recommended.

        Very tidy and neat, the water pressure is poor as well as the drainage. But other than those all is fine. Close to bus stations

        an unexpected letdown”

        hotel n room are neat n clean. breakfast is also good. construction work nearby makes the neighbourhood dusty. could hea guests next door who talked till 2am. fittings in toilet are of poor quality. toilet holder cannot hold roll. bath soap dispenser dropped off whenever you try to press for soap. Staff were not friendly as what I would expect for this hotel. to top it all, it didn't come cheap.

        it is a hostel not a hotel”

        During my ten days- 1. No refill any toilet papers and tissues, once I asked to refill, the receptionist asked me to come down to the reception to get them. Then, I couldn't come down as I need to take card of my child and they said will bring them to me, at the end, there had no one to come for the whole night. 2. One morning, many rooms had no hot water, the receptionist attitude is so rude, and asked anything about fixing, just replied "I don't know, I don't know". 3. Ten days, the breakfasts are exactly the same, NO eggs. Talk to the receptionist, she said we would change anything, it is the hotel for the business customers. 4. One night, the room door can't close properly, after the staff came and fixed it. 5. On the 31th Night, there were many sounds for the whole night, and couldn't sleep, didn't know what it is, I recorded them, and asked your staff to check, he heard that too and said he didn't know what it is and said will come back, but at the end, no one came back for anything. 6. On the 24th, I asked the receptionist about Dec 25, most of shops and restaurants are closed. And if I buy some foods from the supermarket how can we heat them. She said it is welcome to bring them to the reception and she can heat them with microwave. I said oh thank you, where is the microwave, and she said it is in the kitchen, I just bring the food to them, she will help to heat. Then, I bought the food to the reception on the Dec 25, the manager who is called Mr. Scot, he said "the hotel would not help to heat food, all the staff here supposed know that and wouldn't tell me can heat foods." I strongly to reply it was your staff told me that that's why I went to the supermarket to buy foods for Christmas day. If you can't do it, why your staff told me they can? During the conversation, the manager didn't say sorry till I got angry and even no sorry, finally, he did. I have being traveled at least four times in a year to different countries, it was the worst experien

        Warm service, clean and tidy room, big breakfast

        The rooms were tidy and clean. The breakfast was big, same holiday inn express standard. The staff was helpful in teaching you where to dine and visit. The bus no. 22 was convenient to get to the city centre and the railway station. The bus no. 35 to Airport takes a long time. Should take 22 then exchange 100 express at the railway station if in a hurry.

        Family meeting”

        Well appointed hotel, near very interesting area of Edinburgh (Leith), away from the bustle of tourists in the ciy centre. The Festival crowds can be daunting. The bus services were very frequent to the city centre and could take you to any of the attractions easily. If a family wished to travel around the city I would recommend a day ticket which would save finding change everytime you caught a bus. The bus services donot give change. My only criticism of the hotel is the bedrooms are very hot, very comfy beds and cosy, but too hot for us.

        Not a lot for the money”

        One thing to be clear about, the name implies it is on the waterfront. It isn't. It's on the Edinburgh Waterfront complex that consists of a shopping mall and apartments. There are old dock basins close by which can be seen from the upper floors but not immediately adjacent. However, as an Express type hotel, it is okay, nothing special. Good reception staff and a quick check in and a clean room. The bathroom could have done with very minor touching up but it was fine with a decent hot shower. The down-lighting for the surround mirrors wasn't very good for ladies who like to have a bright light for make-up, but the entrance had a big mirror which had better lighting. The room itself was small but adequate, having quiet air-conditioning and a kettle with tea and coffee. However, there was only two tea bags, enough for one drink each, so I phoned reception for room service but was told there wasn't any. I'd have to go down to get more teabags, which I did. The staff were apologetic but it was hotel policy, not their unwillingness. The bed was fine, a small double but comfortable. TV was okay with plenty to watch and good reception. One thing that could have been better was luggage storage. It was woefully inadequate. We had to use the two seater settee to put our bags on. There was also a tiny open cupboard with a few hangers. Breakfast was average. However with only three items on the menu, scrambled egg, sausages and beans, it could have been much better. No bacon, no mushrooms, no tomatoes etc. There were cereals, toast, tea and coffee and fruit juice, so it was just about okay. Finally, car parking. Okay if you get there early but it appeared to get very busy at times with only one space when we arrived on night. So, final verdict. With a shopping mall and the Royal Yacht Brittania attraction across the road and a quiet location, this hotel is fine for a short stay. Nothing special and very overpriced for what you get. But so is the rest of Edinburgh.

        Ideal location”

        Reasonably priced, clean rooms

        The hotel has a handy location just a few minutes walk from the waterfront at Leith. The rooms are pretty much what you expect from a hotel of this type - clean and comfortable but not particularly spacious or individual. Bathroom was clean, and the shower was good quality. Staff were friendly and efficient, but the breakfast is not that great (though it is thrown in for the price).

        Location, clean, friendly staff

        The hotel is ideally located next close to the Shore in Leith. The staff were friendly and efficient and the reception area clean and tidy. The room was bigger than we'd expected, and pretty much spotless. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom a decent size with good walk in shower. Free wi-fi was available in the public areas downstairs and the room guide says it is available in some rooms as well - you can buy priority access if required. All in all, a decent hotel in a handy location.
