« A Christmas Treat »

The rooms are clean and reasonably well appointed. The staff were professional and the restaurant staff were particularly helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good however the majority of the food served in the evenings was very disappointing.

Matt B, General Manager at Novotel Edinburgh Centre, responded to this review

Many thanks for your kind review. I am glad my team made your stay enjoyable. Sorry to read that you found the food in the evening to be disappointing. If you wish to give more details, please feel free to contact me on h3271@accor.com. Kind regards Matt Brett General Manager Novotel Edinburgh Centre

« Family 2 night stay »

Booked this hotel for the pool facility as the kids enjoy a swim however the chlorine was unbearable. It was so strong the kids were coughing and eyes were streaming we had to take them out. Other kids were the same as ours so found this disappointing. Otherwise, good location, good breakfast choice and clean rooms.

Matt B, General Manager at Novotel Edinburgh Centre, responded to this review

Thank you piniNewcastle for your review. I do apologise for the issue with the swimming pool. We called in an engineer and all had now been resolved. I realise that this did not help your experience but please be rest assured it was an unusual issue we were having. I'm glad that overall the location, cleanliness of the rooms and the breakfast choice were good for you though. We hope to welcome you back again. Warm Regards, Matt Brett.

« Average »

We stayed in an executive room with view of the castle.i was a bit disappointed with the room as it was more like a standard room with a coffee machine. The bathroom was small and also the separate toilet room was on the small side. You had to tilt your head to have a view of the castle. Breakfast was good apart from queing up for 10mins for a table. Was misled as I read before hand check out is at 5pm on Sunday but when I doubled checked at reception after breakfast on Sunday, I was told check out was at 12pm. On the plus side, good location and waiting staff very friendly.

Matt B, General Manager at Novotel Edinburgh Centre, responded to this review

Thank you Elisabethh556 for taking the time to write your review. I am sorry the room booked did not meet your expectations. We do have late check out until 5pm on a Sunday which is available upon request/ availability. we hope to welcome you back on your next visit we can arrange this for you. Thank you again. Warm Regards, Matt.

« Great place to visit edinburgh »

A nice place located near by the old town. Staff extremely friendly and keen to give you advice . Working like a high end concierge. Only one concern Parking has only 20 places and of course 1st in 1st served. Dinner is standard for a Novotel, therefore it would be highly recommended to use local restaurant. Ask to hotel lobby they gave us ONLY GOOD address

Craig M, General Manager at Novotel Edinburgh Centre, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your kind review. It is much appreciated and I can assure you that my team will be delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I look forward to welcoming you back again very soon. Kind regards, Craig Munro.

« Pre-trip stay prior to Trafalgar tour »

Trafalgar made an excellent choice for a three-night stay in Edinburgh and we added two nights on our own before our Scotland tour began. Location is not exaclty downtown, but we walked to every sight we wanted to see. The Sainsbury grocery store a block away saved us $ on food, some of which we kept cold in the in-room fridge for suppers when we were too tired to venture out. Nicely appointed modern room. Great bed. Helpful and welcoming staff. Best breakfast offering of our entire trip. We highly recommend this hotel. Great public computer to use as well.

Craig M, General Manager at Novotel Edinburgh Centre, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your visit. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Kind regards, Craig Munro.
