No Frills Ex University Halls Accommodation

We have stayed here before and knew what to expect. Getting a double room in Edinburgh with a big breakfast and car parking for £100 a night during the Festival/Fringe is good value. Masson House is a full time hotel now and no longer used by students. The room is fine and security is very good. Our one grouse is the 'wet floor' style combined shower/toilet - after a shower the floor is sailing for the next 1-2 hours. During the Festival the place is packed and breakfast is very busy - food is plentiful but seats can be hard to find. Overall you get what you pay for - its clean and secure.

The best thing about my stay was...

Getting the car parked nearby without being stiffed by a parking charge.

excellent, staff were really friendly and very helpful, breakfast was great.

Masson house was very well furnished, rooms small but adequate. Only problem we had was that we had booked a twin room through this site and twin rooms do not exist at Masson house so had to be moved to the halls, which turned out to be fine but frustrating to have to move. Appeared to be plenty of parking. Would recommend Masson house for couples.
