Great views of the castle
The Mercure sits on Princes Street and has some great views over the gardens and the castle.
Transport & Parking
The hotel is on the Princes Street and ideally placed for buses to all parts of the city as well as the city’s tram service. There is no parking on site.
Access in and around the building: I found getting into the building to be OK once I found the front entrance. The entrance has a step to the front door followed by several steps inside the lobby to take you up to the next level. I was accompanied by a companion who happens to be a wheelchair user and he could not proceed beyond this point. I did take the opportunity to look around the hotel. Access in the accessible bedrooms and bathrooms: The accessible bedrooms (if you can use the ramps to get in the hotel) where very spacious and well appointed. Access in the dining area: The dining area was large and spacious.
The staff were friendly and helpful in enabling me to take a look around.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
The hotel is well located and whilst not suitable for my powerchair using friend may be fine for other wheelchair users who can manage the ramp. It’s may also be great for other disabled people who do not have mobility impairments.
