Review of Premier Inn Edinburgh City Centre Haymarket

I stayed at the Premier Inn Edinburgh City Centre Haymarket on a Sunday night in November 2015. It cost £29 for the night on the non-refundable Premier Saver rate, booked a couple of months in advance.

It’s the largest Premier Inn at which I’ve stayed. It’s located a two minute walk from Haymarket Railway Station, where you can take a bus or tram to and from the iairport. There’s onsite guest parking, on a first come first service basis, charged at £8 per 24 hour period. This is a reasonable price for the convenience.

I was allocated a room at the back of the hotel, overlooking the car park and the back of traditional apartment blocks. This suited me, as it was nice and quiet.

The room was large, but looking slightly tired compared to some of the newer, or recently refurbished, Premier Inns at which I’ve stayed.

I liked the fact that the room had two armchairs, as well as a chair at the desk. Premier Inn now offer free WiFi. I didn’t try it, as you had to register to use it, and I had enough data available that month to tether through my Three Mobile monthly contract.

The bar and restaurant area on the ground floor was pleasant. I hung around there for a few minutes after the noon departure time, as the nearby restaurant at which I planned to have lunch, Mr Basrai’s World Cuisine, didn’t open until 12.30

In summary. I thought that the £29 room at Premier Inn Edinburgh City Centre Haymarket offered good value for money for comfortable, quiet, centrally located accommodation.
