    Excellant location. Exceptionally clean modern room. Check in staff was amazing. Courteous, friendly and helpful. Manuel went above and beyond to assist us with all our inquiries and made us feel very welcomed. Would definitely recommend staying at Novotel.

    Close to the University and easy to navigate the city. The one day in advance breakfast offer was a fantastic deal as the breakfast was very very very very good.

    Mostly happy....

    Hi, felt I was inconveniencing the desk staff when I approached with questions or requests. Advertise that they include parking, which was why we chose to spend $600/night for our stay, only to find out there were very limited spots and although my mother is handicapped, we were required to find off site parking. I understand stuff like that happens, but again the desk staff did not seem interested in helping us out.

    1 night away

    We had a great stay and our room was perfect apart from our Aircon didn't work so we had a very hot night. It didn't spoil anything so we didn't mention it. The staff were great and the kids loved the pool.

    Red hot rooms ! June onwards , I should have known

    Dont stay here in june , apparently its middle of summer and dont forget its Scotland and its usually cold. The rooms were red hot all night, didnt sleep well. No phone in the room to call reception. Only has warm air no air con ,and the windows in the bedroom didnt open, the window in the bathroom area opened , but didnt help much. Reception said I was mistaken to put it politely . Rooms were nice hotel very nice , rooms red hot . wouldnt stay again. Accor are usually better than this. Disappointed to be honest.

    Nicely appointed hotel, friendly efficient staff.

    Nicely appointed hotel, well located near Edinburgh Castle. Rooms are well designed and comfortable. Great to be able to have a splash about in the small pool (booking system worked well, but a bit confusing arrangements for changing, etc). Staff were friendly and efficient. Understand things are getting underway after Covid, but there were a few niggles: - requested adjacent rooms, although on the same floor our family was split. - unable to park at the hotel car park throughout our 3 day stay. Cheaper at NCP Castle Terrace (£15 p/d with hotel voucher) but less convenient. - unable to open room windows due to very noisy fan on adjacent building on Lady Lawson St - breakfast was busy, even with booking system we queued every morning. juice machine was located in the middle of the queue for hot food, not ideal - for the first 2 days, all drinks were in paper cups
