    Superb

    Great accommodation for the fringe. It was perfect for me because I was out meeting friends, it's not the best choice if you're looking to meet people to go around the festival with but that was never my aim. Nice and safe location and as it's right by loads of bars so you don't have to go too far to have a good night!

    Great Location. Sinks didn’t work and the bathroom wasn’t very clean.

    Fabulous

    Having stayed at this venue on another occasion I feel that this time my stay was not as comfortable. My room was situated virtually above a bar/put, and they were playing loud music way into the early hours. Four nights of this became challenging. I booked for two people, two rooms. My friend checked out after one night, due to the noise. He booked his flight and cut his stay due to the unpleasantness. The toiler also needed some general maintenance.

    Standard university accommodation, not brilliantly maintained - wallpaper peeling, little bit dirty in places, usual things. After arriving I went to get my keys, the staff there were pretty rude and ignorant, shocked to look at her name badge to see she was the Duty Manager for the evening. I had to move rooms after the first night so was a little bit of an inconvenience. The pillows were shocking. Location is noisy (it overlooks Cowgate) but I knew about it so not complaining.
