Pros: Everything It's cleanliness it's friendliness and it's excellent food
Cons: Renovations taking place outside will be great when finished meantime it's a bit muddy down the bottom end of the car park
Location: Handy for Edinburgh City centre easy car journey
We were so lucky to find this great stay whilst looking to visit "Britannia" although the location is noisy at night the room itself was clean, comfortable and luxurious. SKY in the room made my husband happy The food was first class and what you would expect from a top London Hotel - we could understand why the restaurant was so busy and had a buzz of contentment when we went in! Major renovations taking place out back but plenty of parking Staff were very accommodating and friendly nothing was too much trouble Would recommend to anyone wanting a first class stay just outside Edinburgh City centre

Pros: Comfortable, modern, excellent food, helpful staff.
Cons: Unfortunately, the location cannot be altered!
Location: Busy road. Nothing much within walking distance. Major building work did not affect stay but part of car park a bit of a building site at present.
The Sun Inn is on a busy road. The room was comfortable and the road was not extremely noisy, we still got some sleep but it was not ideal. We had dinner and breakfast and the food was excelllent.

Pros: Rooms were clean, beautifully decorated and staff were friendly and very helpful.
Cons: A lack of defined parking spaces meant people parked in a haphazard manor and our car was (lightly) scratched on two separate occasions
Location: Approximately 20minutes from the centre of Edinburgh. A range of activities are detailed in a book in the room and great location to visit the Fringe
Stayed here for 4 nights with the aim to go into Edinburgh daily to visit the Fringe festival. Staff were fantastic, very helpful and welcoming. We did not eat in the restaurant in the evening, but the food at breakfast was lovely and the rooms were comfortable, clean and well equipped with everything we needed during our stay. Fantastic value for money

Pros: Parking, and the food.
Cons: Cost was a little high. Could be more competitive.
Location: We were travelling and did not look although I suspect not a lot to do locally.
The room was clean, spacious, quiet, and car parking was available. Food was exceptional and the breakfast huge. Not close to the city although we were driving and this was of no concern.

Pros: Its size.
Cons: The Menu.
Location: Visit into Edinburgh
Our stay was pleasant and comfortable, unfortunately our room was next to A7 and traffic noise can be an issue. Our meal in the restaurant whilst nice was I think overpriced.

Perfect solution for a 1 night stay

Pros: Everything
My Husband and I were taking my parents on a whirlwind visit to Scotland traveling from the Midlands and this was a brilliant place to stay after our first leg of the journey. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were lovely and we also stayed there for dinner which was delicious. I would highly recommend. We headed into Edinburgh the next day and the journey only took 40 minutes to Royal Brittania.
