Breakfast included, great location (both for walking or taking the bus to the touristic attractions), really close to Arthur's seat (beautiful views), friendly staff.
The breakfasts were excellent the variety covered all tastes from meat eaters to vegans. The buses to city centre were a few minutes walk and every few minutes.
Nothing really I would perhaps preferred en suite facilities but it was not much bother as shower and toilet were just outside.
The property was fully acceptable and clean.
There was a fire alarm - someone was smoking in a room - in the early am. However, there was no - none whatsoever - assistance from the facility staff. In addition, there never any explanation given, and no "all clear" advisory that guests could return to their rooms. What occurred only became known the next day when various guests inquired at the front desk. There was never any notice posted - nothing!
Breakfast was fine - with a very good range of foods
The enthusiasm and interest shown by the staff was noted. The food at the facility was reasonably priced and of good quality. The availability of a laundry facility in the building was nice.
A midnight fire drill was not attractive. The directions for finding the facility were not so good.
With a stay at Pollock Halls, you'll be centrally located in Edinburgh, steps from Royal Commonwealth Pool and 14 minutes by foot from Holyrood Park. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. Limited parking is available onsite.
