The Ben Doran Edinburgh 11 Mayfield Gardens, Newington Online Booking

Picture of Ben Doran

The centre of Edinburgh is within easy reach by foot or public transport. The bus service here is very regular and close by for those out of car excursions of our fabulous city.

Rooms here are spacious and very nicely decorated. In fact it is not just us that thinks so. Guests have told us "The rooms are so nicely decorated we are thinking of doing something similar at home.". So thats a real compliment there. We are sure you will see what they mean when you stay.

Additionally in the past we won the RAC Sparkling Diamond award for cleanliness. We still endeavour to keep this award at the top of the agenda for guests by making sure everything is spick and span for you.

Our well trained staff are there to help you on you stay in the city. Maps and advice on what there is to see will be available.

The charm of the rooms has been improved for your comfort. Our aim is to make you feel at home, comfortable and cosy while you stay here with us. Most of our rooms are en suite with amenities you would expect from bigger establishments in there as well.

Near to us at the Ben we have museums walk with lovely panoramic views theatres and even an Olympic size swimming pool.

This Guests Rating Bar for 3.71 

Rating of 3.71 out of 5  Unique ID (1734663)

Guests Name: Stephen  Guest was travelling as: Mature couple

Good stuff: It was clean and the staff friendly.

Bad stuff: We would have preferred en-suite facilities

Overall: It's a fair walk to the town centre, about 1 mile, but there are very regular buses and the drivers are very helpful. No bar.

This Guests Rating Bar for 4.29 

Rating of 4.29 out of 5  Unique ID (1198755)

Guests Name: Debi  Guest was travelling as: Young couple

Good stuff: The staff were very personal and attentive. Breakfast was especially good and it was nice to order it from a menu instead of usual buffet. Room was clean and central bathroom was spotless. Bus stop right across the street made this hotel very convenient to access city centre.

Bad stuff: Room not en suite. Parking was close quarters-accessing the hotel into a very tight car park from a busy road was a bit tricky. Electrical outlets in rooms not really conveniently placed.

Overall: I enjoyed the personal touch at this hotel. I would recommend the Ben Doran to anyone visiting Edinburgh but would tell them that it is not really within walking distance to the city centre (but bus stop provides easy access til 11 PM) and the rooms are not en suite.
