    Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Edinburgh Learmonth

    Great Value Hotel

    from

    I've stayed at this hotel quite a few times and I think its very nice, staff are so friendly and helpful. The showers are so powerful they're brilliant! Nice clean rooms, food very nice and the hotel bar is very relaxing. They've got a sitting area at the front of the hotel which is lovely so sit out and have a drink on a warm evening. A very short walk into city centre which is very handy after a night out or a hard days shopping

    I think the two comments above are very untrue about this hotel and I find it excellent value especially for Edinburgh City Centre. I would definitley recommend this hotel

    Disappointing for the price

    from

    I stayed at the Learmonth with a group of friends and as it was a 2 star I wasnt expecting luxury

    On the plus side it was in a nice location with a bus stop outside (5 min journey to Princes Street for 1) or 15 walk to the West End. Staff looked after our luguage as we arrived before check in, we didnt experience any noise, the room was huge (72) and the breakfast was also excellent.

    However, the hotel is in dire need of a refurbishment. Paintwork is very tired, curtains half hanging off and broken plug socket in our room. This was all bearable but the bathroom was pretty bad. Mould and mildew all round the bath and on shower curtain. Towels also stained.

    Worst experience however was arriving back at 2.30am (yes, this was late but not unusual in a big city on a Saturday night) and finding ourselves locked out. Ringing the bell and knocking loudly got us nowhere. A large group of hotel residents were now gathered outside (no doubt waking other poor hotel residents with the noise). Eventually I rang a friend who had returned early and got her out of bed to let us in. The door was bolted and locked and not easy for her to open.

    Overall if we had been charged 80 or less for the room I wouldnt have minded but for 150 I expected better.

    Awful

    from

    I stayed at the learmonth hotel it was awful.I would not recommend it to people who would like a good nights sleep.My husband and I were awakened around 2.30 am until 4.30 with a group of young men banging on doors cursing etc they were also playing with the lifts aparently they broke one.We phoned down to the night porter who did come up and tell them to quieten down but they still went on.On the plus side the girl on reception was helpful but the room was needing done up ,the bathroom floor was risen and the tiles were old, dirty looking and just tired and worn.The trouble makers should have been thrown out.

    Security alert :don't leave your keys

    from

    Bad news hotel, with big problem. Do not leave your room keys at front desk as requested when you go out. Our rooms were entered when we were out and property removed. We were lucky as just staying one night for a theatre trip so had minimal belongings. Night duty staff(especially foreign chap at desk) convinced we must have left our keys in room and treated us like "daft wimman" when our keys were not at the desk on our return. Police informed and despite a police visit , we had no contact or interest from a duty manager at any time before we left. So beware travellers and tourists. Security is lax, this hotel is resting on its Edinburgh laurels!! Oh and if offered room 306 refuse as the bath is despicable. I know we did an internet booking (cheaper price) but even baths have to be usable.On the plus side a grand breakfast!!

    What an amazing few days...

    from

    What an amazing few days, myself and my friend have just had in Edinburugh. The hotel was excellent for the price, we went mid week and it worked out really cheaply. We had a lovely breakfast and the room was very spacious and the staff were really helpful. There might be an issue with the noise on the coridoors if the hotel was busy, but luckily it was quiet when we went.

    I would advise anyone that is going to go on one of the ghost walks as they are lots of fun and also to visit the Castle.

    Excellently placed hotel

    from

    After reading the reviews of this hotel I was a little apprehensive about my stay. On arrival I found the staff to be extremely helpful, the bedroom and bathroom clean and everything I needed was in place. The hotel is well placed for buses, there being a bus stop right outside the door, though it is only a 15 minute walk to the centre of the city. The breakfast had an excellent choice of hot and cold food and the service was good. There are some very good restaurants within easy walking distance if you don't want to eat your evening meal in the hotel.

    Okay eventually...

    from

    Arrived at the hotel at about 2.45pm after 4 hour trip. Checked in and made our way to our room which was not ready...bad start. reported this to reception woman told us to go and wait in the bar - not the friendliest and also no apology - just an excuse that "the list said it had been inspected". My partner had to go back through to reception to check to see if we could have some complimentary drinks whilst waiting - no problem - although it would have been better to have been given these from the start!

    The room was OK but I think it needed refurbishing (as did the hotel bar) ...bath had a tell tale black line in the corners where sealant needed replacing.

    Breakfast was average.

    Worst point was that when we returned from a night out (about 12.30-1pm the doors were locked - tried ringing the bell - no answer had to knock on the window to get attention - then when the guy opened the door he said "you only needed to ring the bell!"

    Location was OK - it is located about a 5-10 min walk from the West End, and a fair walk - about 20-25 minutes from the royal mile. However there are very regular buses 41/19 that leave from outside the hotel every 10 minutes or so (80p 1 way onto the royal mile)would have been fine in warmer weather - if that is ever experienced in Scotland!

    However, the hotel itself is located in a very nice area, which we probably wouldn't have seen if not for its location.

    Hotel was fab!!! Ignore any bad reviews

    from

    Don't listen to any bad reviews about this hotel. I read a few bad reviews after I had booked the hotel which left me worried, so letting you know there's nothing to be worried about so book with confidence. I have just come back from a weekend of Christmas shopping in Edinburgh with my boyfriend and we had a great time. The hotel was spotless and very well presented. The decor was lovely and kept in well with the gorgian building which made the hotel very cosy. Hotel staff lovely and friendly. The area was perfect too, not noisy at all but in good walking distance. The breakfast was great, huge choice of a cooked and continental food. We requested for a bottle of champagne to be left in our room with a supplement to be paid on arrival and they were very helpful with this, no bother at all. It only took about 7-10 mins to walk to Princess Street from the Hotel and we weren't rushing. I would definately visit again.

    Have fun!!

    Worst hotel yet!

    from

    Not a very clean hotel,food stains on walls. Decor in bedrooms peeling off and dirty.Mould in bathroom.Children not welcome in bar after 20.00 and no seperate room/lounge to to go in.

    Staff not very helpful, apart from the restaurant staff. THIS HOTEL IS NO LONGER A RAMANDA JARVIS HOTEL

    Give it a C grade

    from

    This place was just average. It might be 3 stars, but it was quite dirty and unkept in the room. I tolerated it, but I'm sure there are better choices. It is also about .5 miles from the city centre.

We have another Zoo performance on Tuesday that the Zoo may cancel on us if we do not show up for the Sat performance. I decided to postpone my decision till after the performance. Once we had finished, I looked outside and just decided to cancel on the Zoo, as I was concerned about the kids health.

    ... This was supposed to be the best view of the city, so we started our way up. Little did we know there was a storm brewing in the distance. We started up the side of the volcano at a fast pace, trying to make it to the dark before the sun went down. As we were going up, there was a steep area which was very muddy. I didn't exactly have hiking boots on, more of a riding boot, so I was nervous about sliding down the hill with my minimal grip ...

    Hello everybody. Today was our first full day in Edinburgh! We woke up (rather reluctantly), and got ready to face the day. We trudged down to the Premier inn barest restaurant, for breakfast. Then we walked down cobblestoned streets, lined with beautiful old stone buildings. We slowly made our way to the big bus station, then waited in the Prince's park for the tour bus to come. While we waited, we spotted some squirrels, climbing up a ...

    ... to have the best Guinness in Edinburgh. The next day I went off to play cricket while the others went to the Sunday markets and lazed in the sun up at Calton Hill. That night before they hopped back on the bus, we went for a feed of fish and chips and sat in the park, watching a million dogs pass by. A good end to the weekend.

    Fireworks went off every night for the whole month around 10.30pm which after the fist few days found out it was part of the performance ...
