Kings Manor is a lovely hotel with reasonable Edinburgh prices. The room was immaculately prepared and the bathroom spotless, with a good supply of quality toilet roll. I didn't use the gym or sauna but they too looked very well presented. The breakfast was self service but nicely catered with everything from continental pastries through fruit salad, cereal and a full Scottish / English selection. The only negative being the haggis and black pudding, which were dry enough to absorb your soul, but freshly squeezed juice took care of that. Situated on the outskirts of town, the area is pleasantly quiet, yet only a short stroll to the main bus routes and train station. Highly recommended.
Nice room with a comfortable bed. Good breakfast including porridge and haggis, scrambled eggs cooked still moist. Electric car charging point was appreciated though on our second night it was a bit hard to get at as a large pickup had parked in front of it. Good swimming pool. Our second night was slight spoiled by people banging loudly on the door of the next room at 4am followed by loud discussion. Also not pleasant that evening getting into the hotel through a group of about ten louts smoking and drinking by the no smoking signs on the ramp to the entrance.

Had an overnight stay here recently for the moonwalk, my daughter was doing it. Lovely warm welcome for us all. Great food and comfy bed and pillows very important. Brilliant sea views enjoyed by me and my grandaughter. Thankyou so much for your kind donation to the moonwalk for my daughter your support for this amazing charity was most appreciated. We will return again next year. Thankyou!
Rather disappointed with the beef on my mixed grill as it was full of grisle, that of which may have been an unfortunate one off.. otherwise it seems a very nice establishment and beautiful view overlooking the sea with the staff being of helpful and pleasant manner.. my mother had haddock and was delighted with it.

Staff were pleasant and helpful. Room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and a good selection. Would definitely return if in Edinburgh in the future.
Very friendly staff and very nice rooms. The pub next door where they serve food for the inn is also good.

Had lunch there on Sunday 23rd for my daughters birthday. Service was excellent and the food was also excellent. The place is quite quirky with lots of different areas for eating - the place certainly has character. Most of the tables all had reserved signs on them which tells it's own story. We will be back
Lovely food, tasty, wide selection of beer and other drinks, service was phenomenal! Especially a blond lady in a white shirt, she should be a role model to everyone in hospitality! We will definitely come again when we come back to Edinburgh. There is also a nice beer garden so you can enjoy the sun.

Decent menu. Nice decor. Very on trend. Colouring for kids. Burgers are too big so could do with working on portion sizing. It's not fun to eat a burger when it's contents are slipping out all over the place. Tasty though. Good work, guys.
Sandwiches are quite pricey, about a tenner, but so worth it! The haloumi and pesto one is fantastic! Nice vibe and chatty atmosphere too, great for bringing friends and family.

If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!

Great place for a nature escape in the city. The highest peak (Arthur's seat) is great for views of the city and a nice climb. The craggs (sharp cliffs facing the centre of Edinburgh) are also a great walk with beautiful views. Yet the smaller peak closer the shore direction is where I spend most my time. It is peaceful, generally with just a few locals walking dogs or running. And you can divert from the paths just a little bit, to find a secluded spot. I often head up here to sit, draw and relax.
We walked up to Arthurs seat after visiting The Scottish Parliament (free tour) and I am so glad I did that first as our tour master was wonderful, explaining everything that we needed to know, saving us time and much research. We actually parked half way up the hill on the south side and walked up one of the many wild footpaths. It is very open so if you have younger children it is a good idea to keep tight hold of them as it can get very windy up there (the day we visited it was not windy at sea level). My children (10 & 9) loved every minute. We climbed up a different peak which had equally as stunning 360 degree views but my children (no surprise to me) decided that 'as ninjas, we would not be beaten' and climbed the final ascent to Arthurs seat. It was fabulous!! Breathtaking views and fortunate enough to witness the sunset it was an amazing experience - one I recommend to anybody visiting Edinburgh
