Silversurfers_9 Couples - 23/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

What a pleasure it was to stay at this hotel after our experience at the Novotel in York. Everything was superb from the welcome by the lady in reception to the room and the food in the restaurant. A special mention to the restaurant staff who made us most welcome ( Otterly Ellen loved chatting to you)

NICE ROOM ON 5TH FLOOR BUT WEIRD BATHROOM LAYOUT

Good location generally comfortable

Customer review rating 4.4/5

M B. Couples - 16/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Breakfast ok. Room clean and modern.no aircon poor for 4* didn't like sink in the middle of the room. Used what's app to request more coat hangers and softer pillows no apparent response. Didn't really live up to 4* expectation felt expensive for what it was.

Generally pretty reasonable but marred by muddled accounting method.

Martin C. Couples - 15/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Declined room 511 on account of too many mirrors and oddly arranged plumbing. On a short visit noticed the room was dusty. Room 236 was also dusty, the coffee cups had not been cleaned, and an inadequate supply of milk was provided.

Edinburgh Fringe stay

Karen W Family - 15/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

I have stayed at this hotel before and had excellent service. This time the service fell a little bit short of excellent due to the number of guests. The rooms were clean and well maintained and all the facilities were clean. The only issue was at breakfast where some items ran short and were not replenished quickly enough. Not a major issue and I'm sure just due to numbers. I know that the Festival increases prices, but I paid more than 6 times the price I had paid in March for a lower quality room.....:(( However, I like the location of this hotel and always stay here when I am in Edinburgh.

Dear Karen Thank you for providing a review. We are pleased to read you enjoyed our accommodations! Our entire team appreciates your compliments and we look forward to welcome you back. As per your feedback in regards of the breakfast, it has been shared with our Food and Beverage Manager and our Kitchen chef. We look forward to welcoming you back ‘home’ in the very near future. Regards, Amine ZUNGI

Excellent, as ever

I know you're great, you know you're great. We went to Austria a few weeks back and all I heard from my wife and daughter was "it's not as good as the Novotel is it?".

Good

Enjoyable. Thanks for arranging a room on the first floor as I do not use lifts and needed a room accessible by minimum number of stairs.

Karen W. Families - 14/08/2019 AccorHotels review

The hotel was very busy (not a surprise during the Fringe) so breakfast items sometimes ran short and we had to wait for replenishments. However, as usual the hotel was well staffed and everybody was extremely helpful. The gym was clean and accessible. The room was well maintained and spotlessly clean with good supplies of tea, coffee and bathroom products.

extremely good

Damjan Families - 13/08/2019 AccorHotels review

I stayed in Novotel Edinburgh Centre with my family and the whole experience was great: the room, location, very friendly staff, hotel bar with live music...

Executive Room, but still rather basic

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Anonymous Families - 12/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Friendly staff, good food, room adequate but bed and pillows not very comfy. Served the purpose. Good location but will probably not stay again.

another great stay

Jon K. Business - 12/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Great stay, nice breakfast, lots of sleep, and the staff as usual is what makes this place... Colleen.. Alice.. Irina the guy in the bar who's name I can't remember (sorry!)... Only complaint is that the shaving/make up mirror is designed for someone about 6'5".. gotta have SOMETHING to grumble about :-)

Very pleasant stay

Jocelyn B. Friends - 11/08/2019 AccorHotels review

The staff were very helpful and everything we asked for we were provided with. The room was big and comfortable although I didn’t like being given a disability bathroom. The bed and pillows were good and the coffee & tea making facilities were also good.

it was splendid

Geoff L. Couples - 11/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Everyone was extremely helpful. As a wheelchsir user the room was ideal. Didn't use the catering facilities - next time maybe?

Busy, about time for a refurb.

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Max W. Couples - 09/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Staff were all great. The hotel itself feels a little tired. In particular, the breakfast experience was not as good as at other Novotels I've stayed at - mainly because it was so busy and the dining facilities were not up to it. The rooms were okay, but in need of a refurb. In particular, the duvet and pillows did not match up to the quality of those at a Premier Inn. The other annoying thing is the fact the staff at the neighbouring Premier Inn were crashing about in their service yard early and late, but I guess that's not anything you can do something about!

Karen G. Families - 09/08/2019 AccorHotels review

We all had an excellent stay. All staff were extremely polite and helpful. Rooms were laid out well. all facilities clean and well kept. We only had Breakfast at the hotel but plenty of choice and all nicely cooked. it was out Daughters 18th Birthday weekend and it was such a nice touch that they decorated the room with banners, ballons and some sweet treats

Overall, it was just lovely. The room and all public spaces was delightful

Customer review rating 4.4/5

Gail Families - 08/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Novotel in Edinburgh was a beautiful. Much more than I expected. BUT, you have a front desk women there who was extremely unpleasant, unsmiling, and frankly rude. I do not know her name, but she said she was new, and she had long brown hair. All other staff was delightful.
