Pollock Halls University Of Edinburgh Edinburgh 18 Holyrood Park Road Online Booking

Picture of Pollock Halls University Of Edinburgh

Located within a few minutes walk of the Park that surround Arthur's Seat this University accommodation is great value. Compact rooms that are also student accommodation comes in cheap to travellers.

Our location is a good one for any budget traveller. We are about 1.3 miles / 2 kilometres, approximately 26 mins walk from the North Bridge entrance to Waverly station. This also put us a similar distance from the East end of Princes Street and the gardens in the small valley below.

We have a good selection of types of room. Some with ensuite toilets and bathrooms others, the majority share facilities with other rooms down the hallways.

Our prices reflect the type of accommodation this is. There is a breakfast served up each day in a nearby building. The walls are somewhat thin so bringing some ear plugs may be a good idea. The rooms are of adequate size to sleep in but not entertain in.

More concisely, to get to us from Waverly train station follow these directions. Find and come out of the North Bridge exit and turn left to cross over the tracks. Carry on down here passing across High Street (the Royal Mile) and Cowgate (leading to the Scottish Parliament and Our Dynamic Earth).

This road will change name into Nicolson Street and then again to St Patrick's Street at a junction. Here you are looking for a left hand turn into East Crosscauseway. Carry on along here for 170 years or so and turn right onto St Leonard's Street. Continue along again for a similar distance and then turn left into St Leonard's Lane which takes you around the local police station here.

After 100 yards take and follow the footpath to your right. Next take a left onto Hermit's Croft which will turn into East Parkside after about 70 yards. Continue along here until you com to Holyrood Park Road. Cross over here and turn left. You should see our building signposted on your left.

Guests Name: ERIC  Guest was travelling as: Mature couple

Good stuff: Clean Room. Good Location, Even with building works being carried out the area were assessible

Bad stuff: The breakfast service was diabolical, to many people, not enough front of house staff and Insufficent clean tables. The Food was good, hot & plentiful but let down by the other issues. If they knew there was so many people staying the catwering service should have organised the breakfast service on both days of my stay better. Staff tried hard but there was not enough to cope with such a surge in numbers coming to breakfast at the same time. Has put me off using this type of accomodation in future.

Overall: Apart from the issue regarding breakfast, a good well located alternative option to a mainstream hotel.
