Historical Traveller Reviews of Travelodge Edinburgh West End Hotel
Run of the millfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Ordinary is the word I would use. Smallish rooms with a few added extras to warrant its 4 star award but not much else. Very average hotel.
Great Hotel (especially if you have a car) and Restaurant.from baxi
The Hotel was busy due to the Six Nations Rugby and to be honest it wasn't our first choice due to not being right in the centre of Edinburgh, however the service was excellent and I definately recommend this Hotel and would stay there again. The only negative was that our room was next to the lifts so could get a bit noisy as people walked by.
It is about a ten minute walk to the closest end of Princes Street or about £5 for a taxi to the centre, a main selling point of the Hotel is that it has its own car park so an ideal place for anyone wanting a base close to the city centre but without parking problems.
The quality in the Hotel could not be faulted, everything was clean, staff very friendly (especially Lala in the restaurant). We had an evening meal in the Hotel restaurant which I can highly recommend, the food was fantastic and I cannot understand why the restaurant was so quiet (only about 5 tables occupied)it should really be better promoted by the Hotel Management.

Good Value Hotelfrom SLEMONS
Impressed - better than I was expectingfrom CaliCali
Hotel was much bigger and nicer than expected. We were initially given a roadside room which due to the rain and thanks to the reviews on here I was worried would be too noisy - so we asked to be moved to a room on the other side - thought there might be a problem as it was such a low rate, but not, they moved us without a fuss and the new room was very quiet.
Room was clean and comfortable, nice linen, modern furniture, bathroom was fine and they had tea and coffee making facilities (with big mugs).
Breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice, we didn't have to wait at all.
Overall I was very pleasantly suprised by this hotel and would definitely stay again.
Good value but disappointed by early-morning noise!from Lisa_Buckley
We were unlucky enough to have a roadside room. The hotel is not air-conditioned and gets very warm. Plus, the room we had was quite small, meaning we had to leave the window open overnight. The general traffic noise was not tooooo bad, but we were awoken at 7.40am the first morning by what we assumed was a coach dropping off at the lobby beneath but which transpired to be some kind of lorry carrying an access platform or a crane-type thing. Whatever it was, it was certainly very noisy (sound of an engine running nearby constantly) and the noise had not ceased by the time we left to explore the city later that morning. Having been woken up by this (after getting up at 4am for a 6.45am flight from Bristol), we could not get back to sleep all morning thanks to the incessant rumble from just outside.
We notified reception and were told that it would be there all day and, upon requesting a room change, were told none were available. It transpired that this lorry-borne mechanical arm was tending to the illuminated sign at the side of the hotel. The receptionist told us that the lorry should not have been there before 10am.
We returned later that day to a complimentary bottle of white wine and a personal apology from the hotel manager.
All in all, pretty good value and otherwise pleasing, although a 20/25-minute walk into the very centre of the city. Spoiled somewhat by the noise.
Disappointing 4* (?) hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Much better than expectedfrom member040
Peaceful locationfrom tabitha67
The hotel benefits from being just of the beaten track, so you are away from the busy traffic of this major city. We had our window open when we stayed, and it was lovely and peaceful.
Our room was of a good size, and clean, and we didn't hear any noise from rooms to the side of us. Breakfast buffet was excellent, and plentiful (my partner recommends the haggis!!).
On the 2nd day of our stay (bank holiday weekend), the breakfast area did get very busy, and some people were waiting for seats in the breakfast area for a considerable time.
Overall, well located hotel for exploring Edinburgh, with the added benefit of having a free car park.
Wonderful stayfrom Nilmandra
The location of the hotel was good. Not far away from the centre (10 mins walk to Princes Street) but in a nice quiet spot. Very nice area by the river (you can talk a nice walk along) and right opposite the modern art gallery too. Haymarket station is closer than the main Waverly train station, if you are walking to/from there. A good selection for breakfast: continental, fruits, yohurt, full English, about 6 different types of juices. Staff is warm and friendly. Hotel looks very new and modern.
I would definitely stay there again.

Excellent food Howies in the Grassmarket area is a lovely restaurant - the set menu is very good value.
