Premier Inn Lauriston Place
Travel Blogs from Edinburgh
Without too high expectations we arrived in Edinburgh after a journey of over 26 hours (Melbourne - Singapore - London - Edinburgh). Edinburgh turned out to be the perfect start to our trip around Europe and at the end we both thought we could have stayed in this picturesque city for a little longer.
It was a little cold as soon as the sun was …
Well, after two feverish weeks closing up my house and getting ready for this round the world trip that was unexpectedly expanded from 6 weeks to 4 months, I am finally off and running. What didn't get done at home before I left, will just have to wait until 2007! (Unless one of my great friends or family members who are helping me make this dream …
Woke up to a windy and rainy morning, then within an hour it was beautiful with all blue sky. I went out, then ran back up the 3 flights of stairs for a jumper. Went to the National Museum of Scotland, which is very modern and well laid out. I only went through the Scottish bit, and enjoyed this very much. I ...
... 8217;ll have a 3 hr layover and then a short 1 hr flight to Edinburgh.
Next day: I’m sitting up in bed at 10:30am and am ready for a nice, restful sleep. There's still light in the sky even at this late hour. I didn’t get much shut-eye on the plane. Slept maybe 2 or 3 hours but I feel really great. I found these homeopathic jet-lag pills that seem to really help. We arrived in Heathrow and had a couple of hour ...
... our Vegemite the second time!! The first time we bought one, it got left in a hostel. This time, we weren't allowed to take it on the flight, cos the jar was too big. Just can't win with the Vegemite! Once we got through the security, we wandered around the airport for a while, talked to one of the workers to make sure we would be ok to take the guitar as carry on, then Darren and Lyle got some food and sat down, while I went looking round the shops, in search of a certain lead ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn Lauriston Place Edinburgh
We stayed at the Edinburgh Premier Travel Inn on Lauriston Place this last weekend, we paid £64.95 per night for Friday & Saturday night.
Doesn't sound like the same hotel as 26/10?
My husband myself and our 2 young children stayed here 29/10/05. Room was very clean, breakfast was great and staff very helpful. We came back for our cases later and were able to have some food in the restaurant even though we had checked out at 12.00 hrs.
whilst waiting to check in only one member of staff was on the desk and she was on the phone for about 15 mins, a queue built up, someone came out to see to us and started checking the newest arrivals in before those of us who had been waiting....
Great place to stay
I stayed at this hotel from 24/9 to 26/9. £62.50 per night. The hotel room I found to be very spacious, their was just me and my wife staying. The room and the rest of the hotel was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Situated about 10-minutes walk from shops and Princes Street the location is good. Arriving by plane early Saturday morning it is good that you can leave your cases/baggage at the hotel both prior to checkin and after checkin out, if required. I did not eat at the hotel preferring other restaurants and I thought the breakfast cost appeard a bit expensive. All staff were helpful, checkin fast. If I return to Edinburgh, I would definately use this hotel again.
Good location,room clean,friendly staff.Took approx 10 mins walk to centre of edinburgh shops,and about the same time to walk to the castle
No problems with the hotel at all
Brilliant budget hotel
Fantastic hotel price wise and location wise. If you're looking for a clean hotel with good room service just minutes behind the castle, this is the place for you. Only slight downside is it's near one of the main pub/bar streets and you can hear the noise on a Saturday evening. They do mention this on their website however and is only a small inconvenience.
I stayed at this hotel for three nights in August. Considering that the Edinburgh Fringe Festival was already underway I think that for the rate charged this hotel was excellent value and could not recommend it more highly (several guest houses had quoted me rates up to 30% higher).
We stayed at the Lauriston Place Premier Travel Inn from 4-7 August. As a family of four (two teenage daughters) we had a quad room, which contained a very large double bed and two small single beds (about 5' 6'' in length and low down to the floor). The room was £188.85 for the three nights, and we paid for two full and two light breakfasts for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings, which came to £73.20. Our total stay therefore cost £262.05. We thought this was excellent value for money given this is Edinburgh in August.
We arrived late one evening, driving up from the south. We had lots of trouble finding the hotel because of the one-way street system in Edinburgh so after a while I rang the hotel to ask for directions. The girl who answered the phone had an Irish accent and obviously was no more familiar with the Edinburgh road system than I was; rather than passing me on to a local she asked me to repeat where I was (I don't know why because she was none the wiser when I did!). Eventually, after driving around for a bit longer with this girl on the end of the phone, being no help at all, I told her not to bother, we would find the place ourselves, which we eventually did.
After a string of dirty, over-priced B&Bs, budget hotels and hostels, the Premier Travel Inn on Lauriston Place was a welcome surprise. The room was massive (when compared to most hotels in the UK), and everything in the room was brand new: sheets, blankets, carpet, television, curtains, etc. Satellite television was an added bonus, as was the silence. The hotel was fully booked, yet we didn't hear a single noise from 10pm right through the night until 8am. The large, comfortable beds were also conducive to peaceful slumber. I slept better there than I do at home in my own bed. When I checked in at 4pm, the staff (newly trained) took longer than usual to fill in the paperwork, so in order to compensate, we were taken to the bar and given free cocktails/beer to pass the time. Rooms are approximately 60 pounds and breakfast is not included.
