Positive Reviews

Roadside location was convenient for drivers

Motorists in particular liked the location of this hotel within a roadside rest area beside the junction of the A1 and A720 near Musselburgh in the eastern outskirts of Edinburgh. Drivers also appreciated the on-site petrol station and ample free parking. It was also a short drive from dining options and railway stations offering regular services into Edinburgh. It was reportedly straightforward to get to sports venues, beaches, golf courses and area attractions as well as Musselburgh town centre and Edinburgh city centre with its many attractions.

Clean and pleasant rooms at low prices

Some guests remarked that the hotel looked a little uninviting from the outside but many were pleasantly surprised to find the upgraded rooms were well-cleaned and suitably tidy and spacious for a shorter stay. There was also praise for the comfy beds. Budget-conscious travellers often claimed they got reasonable value for money because the room rates were normally competitive.

Upbeat about friendly personnel

Reviewers frequently said they were well looked after by friendly, welcoming and obliging members of staff who had good local knowledge.

Negative Reviews

Nuisance noise reported

Some visitors were bothered by nuisance noise from the adjacent roadside services in certain rooms. Moreover, several light sleepers reported that noise from neighbouring rooms and corridors sometimes travelled easily through thin walls.

Critics found flaws in some rooms

Some critics took issue with maintenance, cleanliness and housekeeping standards in certain rooms. These included stained sheets, unmade beds, tired-looking furniture and worn carpets. According to some guests, it was a struggle to regulate the room temperature with ease.

Location disappointed some non-drivers

The location reportedly best suited drivers as it was slightly out-of-town and the nearest bus stops were half-a-mile away. Moreover, the nearest dining options were not easy to access on foot.
