Historical Traveller Reviews of Edinburgh Marriott Hotel
Wow, what a hotel!!from A TripAdvisor Member
We had a nice big room, double bed was enormous. Room was very clean and the bathroom was of a good size. We used the swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi. It was brilliant! Breakfast was very good, lots of variety and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
We used to take a bus right outside the hotel to visit the town centre. It’s about 15/20 mins away. Also, remember that the hotel has free airport transfers. I bought a Marriott voucher of ebay, you should do the same as I saved some money.
You won’t go wrong with this hotel. Enjoy your stay.
Wonderful facilityfrom A TripAdvisor Member
This is a fine hotel. Yes the food in the lounge is expensive, but you expect that in a hotel lounge. A bus on the corner takes you city center Edinburgh for 1 pound.
AC is average but you expect that in Europe (and Scotland)
Rooms clean and quiet and I had two rooms with my family. Service and information from front desk is excellent. Only issue is no free internet for guests.
great hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Perrrfect place to stayfrom Lotus1lotus
I liked it, not perfect, but better than most in Edifrom neilyork
Food was very impressive - try the burger - it's simply awesome and not over priced by hotel standards.
Overall this is the best hotel I have stayed at during my numerous visits to the city and I'll probably choose this hotel over others in future, unless I find somewhere without those damn roof windows! You could do a lot worse than stay here (aka Roxburgh, Best Western and The Point).
Give the Edinburgh Marriott a miss....from Louise068
The rooms really are getting a bit tired now and offer no complimentary water, have a very small bathroom and are dark and unwelcoming.
The real problem with this hotel is the breakfast - although there is a lot of choice, the quality is poor. 3 inches of water in the scrambled eggs, microwaved bacon, cold and hard pancakes and to top it all a self toast machine that either undercooks or burns your toast. I waited so long to get a decent piece of toast that in the end my inedible breakfast had gone cold anyway.
Not up to the standards I have experienced in other Marriott hotels in the UK and around the world.
Brilliant !from A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are massive with everything you want in it, oh and the beds are really big too !
We arrived back from princess street on New Years Eve and they welcomed us with free soup or sandwiches which i thought was a nice touch ! The staff were very friendly and very helpful !
When we go back to edinburgh we will defiantely stay there again.
Overall Very nice hotel !
Friendly service, bit unorganised thoughfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The room was a great size and was very comfortable, well equipped and clean!
The leisure facilities were also really good.
We didnt use the restaurant at any time but breakfast was great, such a good choice and plenty to go round.
The staff were extremely helpful and polite.
Cant fault the place, will stay again!
The food and sightseeing were breathtaking.
The Marriott Hotel was not "Marriott"...........
The "Club Level" signage states that Breakfast begins at 06:30.
The first day we were there, breakfast was presented at 07:50.
We called the front office about the late service and "The Manager"
came into the Club Room to set us straight......
"Club Level" signage states dessert in the evening. This did not
happen. Bottled water and soda were never replenished.
The day of our departure, we did not receive the two wake-up
calls we had placed the night before. The front office people
told us - we did not place the wake-up calls.
(see the attached photographs)
Take Bus #100, from the front of the hotel, to get into Edinburgh.
It costs only 1 pound. Make sure you tell the bus driver on your
return that you are going to the Marriott. If you do not speak up,
you will be charged 3 pounds instead of 1 pound.
Make sure in Edinburgh to purchase tickets in advance for
Mary King's Close. This is a great attraction.
In the Highlands, if near Aberfoyle, eat lunch at the Mill Store.
Huge bowl of homemade soup and fresh baked bread only 3 pounds.
We were very pleased with the small town of Fort Augustus on the
southern tip of Loch Ness. We asked the captain of our tour boat
for a lunch recommendation. The Lock Inn & Gilliegorm was a WOW!
Top Local Tips for Edinburgh
Amazing Value Buses Lothian Buses have a £2.50 day ticket that allows unlimited travel on their buses. But be aware the buses don't carry change - correct fare only.
Airport access The Airport bus is cost effective and efficient. Cab drivers are knowledgeable and courteous.
Edinburgh Castle Spectacular from the outside.....not worth going inside! £11 to visit the castle, waste of time and waste of money!
