The staff at reception were very efficient, helpful and pleasant. They were well informed about the area, facilities and amenities available and overall it was an excellent location for catching buses to the city centre and for getting to know Edinburgh. I would highly recommend this as good value for money accommodation with an excellent buffet breakfast.
