Property condition


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Please please please do not waste your money staying here! It is absolutely revolting. No amenities whatsoever. Half a diluted bottle of soap at the sink but no shower gel etc. Mould everywhere. Dust everywhere. I was over charged as the woman on reception said I needed to pay for the booking and after spending 8 hours in the car I paid it. Only realising when we got to the room that I had already pre paid through Expedia. Took 3 days to get them to refund me after threatening legal action the money appeared in my account immediately. Funny that! To top it all off we left with bed bug bites! Please whatever you do, don’t spend your money with this hotel. Currently still working through Resolver to try and get my money back for this shocking stay!

  • Liked: Cleanliness
  • Disliked: Staff & service

This property is like a student doss house - no service and you have to work out how to access your room. The good think was the bus service into Edinburgh and the WiFi.

One word sums the place up AWFUL. Inhospitable, dingy, the room was far from clean and the wallpaper was peeling in places. The bathroom was tiny and dirty and there was mould growing in the corners of the shower. I wouldn't touch the place a gain with a barge pole and would recommend that others keep away

if you are anything but looking for the basics

The place appears ok. No toiletries whatsoever. Very dusty. Carpet on stairs out of rails and could cause an accident. Terrible handwritten notes everywhere. If this hadn’t been paid with 1 reward night I would complain more
