noisy doors continuously in the accommodation. They cannot close quietly under any circumstances. some younger cliental are oblivious to other people on campus and showed no consideration at 2.00 am and 3.00am in particular.


Excellent place to stay during the Festival; several buses from city centre to Halls. Good facilities, excellent breakfast included. Right by Arthurs Seat for those feeling energetic and wanting good view over the city and surrounding area.


A great few days in Edinburgh at Pollock Halls. I had a stunning view of Arthir's seat from my room and this more than made up for the walk to the centre (about 30mins). Staff were fantastic. Breakfasts were really good value and included everything you could wish for. I would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Perfect for the Book Festival/Fringe, a little walk from the city centre but there are regular buses and the walk alongside Holyrood Park was lovely. Staff were fantastic, very welcoming and helpful with regarding walking Arthurs Seat. Rooms were great for an overnight stop, clean and spacious, breakfasts were great- self service and a good selection of items. Will hopefully be returning to Edinburgh soon and would book again!
