We have just returned from a lovely 3 night break at the Murrayfield Hotel. On checking in we were shown to our room. I must admit that I was a little shocked at the size of the room (classic twin) it was very small. The hotel website and booking. Com are a little misleading. That said the room was clean modern and the bathroom was beautiful. We stayed bed and breakfast and I have to say breakfast was lovely, lots of choice and large portions. We had no trouble getting additional tea and toast. We did have an evening meal in the hotel and again found this really good. In the restaurant we were looked after by Pat who was lovely and an asset to the hotel. On returning each evening to the hotel Pat always asked about our day a lady who really understands the meaning of good customer service. The hotel is on a main bus route into the city and we got a day ticket that can be used up until midnight for £4.80 brilliant value. We were really lucky as the weather was glorious when we stayed. We bought a hop on hop off bus ticket for 48 hrs for 2 if us this costed £26 again great value as we used it each day to get to all the main sites in Edinburgh. Edinburgh is a beautiful city and whist we packed in a lot during our stay there are still things I would like to do and see. Most definitely will be back to the hotel which was 10 mins from Edinburgh city centre as at night the location suited us out of the hussle and bustle of the city but close enough to get into with little effort. Thanks for a great stay and hope to see you soon
Perfect for rugby and lovely comfy large beds make for a great nights sleep

We had a lovely stay at the Murrayfield Hotel, which of course is the best location to stop at if you’re here for the rugby which is almost a stonesthrow, or should that be, a conversion, away from the hotel.
We had booked a luxe room which was large and very comfortable. A warm welcome on arrival we were shown to the room which was in an (almost) adjacent house to the hotel. Parking was available on site and in our camper van without height restrictions.
The front of the hotel has the busy main road adjacent to it, but with our room (no.7) facing the rear there was no traffic noise.
The bed is HUGE! And importantly very very comfortable.
Facilities in room include room service, walk in rain shower (and hand held for those not wishing to get their hair wet), toiletries, plenty of towels and bathrobes, hair dryer, GHD straighteners, respectably priced mini bar, safe, tv (hidden in a fantastically large mirror), teas, nespresso style coffee machine, bottled water, wine glasses and wine bottle holder, bring and Aux cable to plug your phone into the HiFi speaker system.
We stayed for 2 nights and the bed was turned down whilst we were out as well as stock replenished that we had used.
I felt that the review didn’t justify a full 5* sadly as the food side of the experience didn’t meet the standards we had in the room and with the staff of the hotel.
I am aware that the chef had a personal problem on our first night. We had a light afternoon snack of average quality and breakfasts again were disappointing. Coffee wasn’t great and whilst it’s only a small thing we had to ask twice for toast, yet still didn’t receive it. The food was ok, just not “great”.
Location wise it’s easy to walk into the city (about 25mins) or you could probably catch the bus or tram (there’s a stop within about 10mins walk that takes you to the Haymarket station).
Overall, a lovely experience in Edinburgh and we would probably return to the Murrayfield again.

We had a wonderful stay at the Murrayfield Hotel. The rooms were modern and comfortable, staff friendly and welcoming and the hotel in a prime position only around a 10 minute bus journey to Princes Street with a bus stop practically outside the hotel. There is also complimentary parking on site.
We were staying in Edinburgh for a few days for our honeymoon. The hotel were made aware of this by a friend and upon arrival to our room we were greeted by a platter of chocolate dipped strawberries and a congratulations card which was a lovely gesture by the hotel staff.
To top off our stay, every morning we were welcomed into the hotel restaurant by Andy and his team. Andy is a great character, always taking time out to chat and find out about his guests. He is a real asset to the hotel!
Edinburgh is one of our favourite cities and we visit regularly. The next time we book to visit, the Murrayfield Hotel will be where we look to stay.
Thanks again for an amazing stay!

Just returned from a trip in Edinburgh and we stayed at the Murrayfield and we couldnt have wished for a better stay!
The staff were amazing, our room was prefect for our stated and couldnt thank the staff enough for the extra touch which were done as it was for my Birthday.
Just want a little extra thank you to Katie who was amazing!!
We will only stay in the Murrayfield when we return! It did help that it was free parking and able to walk into the city centre and also not much in a taxi.
Thank you so much again!!
Can highly recommend.
