Apex Waterloo Place Hotel - Edinburgh
Clean and new hotel in great location
Apex Waterloo is located 5 minutes' walk from the train station and about 10-15 minutes' walk to either Old Town or New Town, which made it very convenient for us to explore Edinburgh. The room was as depicted; it was spaciouus, clean and in good condition and the service staff was helpful and friendly. We dined at the restaurant one evening and the service there was excellent (food was reasonably priced and quite good too). Two thumbs up!

We have stayed in Edinburgh a couple of times now but this was our first time with a child. It was a one night stop over before heading to the Highlands. This hotel was great from start to finish with 1 minor hiccup during breakfast in bed. The front of house staff were as to be expected brilliant. Personable and approachable they did everything they could to help us settle in, we’d had a long drive and were a little early but they enquired as to whether our room was ready early and we were offered a drink in the lounge whilst it was finished. The room was spacious and clean and of the standard you’d expect for the price with the bathroom having everything you need as a small family (only problem being that whilst the shower was great and powerful, it was too powerful for the wet room tray and screen and the floor was sodden after a 5 minute spray). The beds were great and my son enjoyed having his own bed, we all had a great night sleep. Ordered breakfast in the room the next morning and it arrived without cutlery and we were missing a plate of meat and cheese, no great issue, contacted room service and it was delivered within minutes, breakfast was great and well worth the price. Gym, spa and pool facilities were clean, up to date and easy to get to, my son loved the pool. Overall, great stay and would definitely return.
