Overview

The Jury's Inn is a large modern hotel extending over two blocks a short distance from Waverley Station, Princes Street and the Royal Mile.

Transport & Parking

4

The hotel is very close to Waverley Railway Station being only a five-minute walk from the Market Street entrance to the station. Taxis stop at the taxi rank outside the station. A short distance from the hotel, around 500m, on Waverley Bridge you can find the Airport Bus service. There is also an Edinburgh Transport Shop where you can get tickets for Lothian Buses, the tram and for the tour buses. The hotel does not have any dedicated parking. On street parking is available outside the hotel and in some adjacent streets. There are also car park facilities at the railway station. Buses to all parts of the city pass along Princes Street which is a ten-minute walk from the hotel.

Access

Access in and around the building: Arriving at the hotel from the station you see the front of the building with little prominent signage. Getting closer you’re likely to pass the door and then realise it is the hotel as it does have the look of an office block from the exterior. There's an automated main entrance door as you arrive that is triggered by sensors as you approach. There is level access in most parts of the hotel. I found getting around, as a powerchair user, fairly easy with smooth floors in the principal areas such as the reception and dining areas. Two lifts (side by side) serve all floors. The lift door clearance is 88 cm. When moving between the reception area and the restaurant and bar you pass outside (under cover) and go in to the second building. There’s a ramp when you enter the second building that takes you down to the restaurant and bar level. Access in the accessible bedrooms and bathrooms: The hotel has four accessible rooms. The bathrooms vary as one has a bath with a seat to move you into the bath and the others have a bath. The entrance door to the accessible room was wide and had a clearance of 86 cm. There was plenty of space to wheel into and around the room; as well as approach the bed from one side. The room was bright and well lit from the natural daylight streaming in the dual aspect windows. Access in the dining area: The dining room was at ground level and approached along a corridor with a ramp and some double doors. Once inside there was plenty of space and the tables and chair are moveable if required. Access to other facilities: The bar is next to the restaurant and offers a range of tables and chairs. There was ample space to move around in my powerchair.

Toilets

3.5

An accessible toilet was located in the corridor as you approach the bar and restaurant. It was large enough for me to get in but not to turn a full circle.

Staff

5

The staff we met were helpful and knowledgeable. Being very welcoming we would encourage potential guests to get in touch prior to booking to discuss their requirements as the hotel has a very positive attitude toward making everyone welcome.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

The hotel has its own quirks by virtue of the building. The building has been made fairly accessible and its proximity to the railway station and nearby Princes Street and the Royal Mile make it an attractive choice for many visitors.
