Royal terrace, edinburgh

Good location - great view over leith, nice walk to the city centre (10 mins). friendly staff. clean. popular with tour groups - downside was early departures. i only stayed because i couldn't get a room elsewhere. but cost worked out not much more than for a travelodge at waterloo place. would go back.

Lovely hotel, wonderful servie

We stayed here on saturday 5th december. we arrived early and our room was ready. the room for 3 people was spacious and well appointed and would be ideal for a family of 3 or a group of friends. the reception staff were wonderful, helpful, polite and interested. trust me i stay in hotels a lot and these people know good customer service. pool is very nice and breakfast great. one minor niggle - there was a wedding reception on at the hotel and we were on the first floor above it, check when you book - unless you particularly like cheesey dance music :)
will certainly go back

Royal terrace

First room was very cold, very draughty and very noisy.

do not have a room at the front of the hotel - the road outside is cobbled and very, very noisy at all hours.

breakfast was ok, very cheap ingredients used for cooked breakfast.
