The last time I was in this establishment must be around 55 years ago when it was the Milton House Hotel. Half a century later, visiting Edinburgh, my wife and I stayed here and both of us were mightily impressed. Our room was large and well furnished, the public areas were bright and cheery and the bereakfast was just right in every respect. Add exceptionally freiendly and eficient staff and there is nothing not to like. Collapse

We visited the Bistro a few months ago. The meal was alright, and due to its convenient location we thought we'd pop in for an evening meal last week. There were plenty of tables and the staff were not overly busy. However, the service was so slow. We ordered our drinks, Battered Haddock, Thai Green Curry and Spicy Wedges. The wine was served in a very small cheap plasticy glass. I was all for asking for a proper glass but did not want to cause a fuss. The two main meals arrived but no wedges. When we asked where they were, we were told they were just coming. We were three quarters of the way through our meal when they came. Piping hot, but very late. The Thai Green curry was very good. However, the Haddock was so greasy I actually had to dab off the excess oil. Although it was fresh and crispy, I felt like I had just drunk a glass of oil. Not nice. Overall, the meal and service was a disappointment. When we arrived we noticed the strong smell of burnt fat and when we left, our clothes were stinking. The Kings Manor used to be a great place to get good food and we used to eat there a lot. The menu does now not offer Spicy chicken pasta, fajitas or pizza; things that were favourites of ours. The reason we did not complain at the time was because the staff just did not seem interested so I wrote an email to the manager. I received the following reply from the Food and Beveridge manager. Interesting reading, and note that there is still no apology. ‘Thank you for your patience whilst I investigated your comments. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. I have spoken to our staff and reviewed the CCTV footage from Friday 24th November. From the moment you arrived your order reached the kitchen within 6 minutes, your meals were then sent out 11 minutes later. Our staff then checked on you a couple of minutes later to check everything was OK with your meal, at this point we have realised there was a bit of confusion when taking your order and you had not received you side portion of wedges. Our waitress immediately went to the kitchen to rectify this issue and these were delivered to your table within 4 minutes from us being informed there was an issue. The waitress then re-checked your table and no further comments were made. With regards to your comment about the cheap plastic glass, your wine was served in our standard 125ml wine glass. I have spoken to the head chef regarding your comments of excess oil on your fish. I have also made a note of comments regarding spicy chicken pasta and fajitas. You can still find pizzas on our current menu. Finally to address the issue of the smell, we have recently invested in the air conditioning in our kitchen. This unfortunately has had the unforeseen effect of blowing the smell from the kitchen to the dining area. We are currently investing on a method to hopefully stop this from happening. Once again thank you for taking the time to contact us regarding you recent visit.’ I am not a person who complains unless necessary and this can be seen from my many reviews on Trip Advisor. I prefer to give the restaurant a chance to redeem itself rather than share negative reviews. The Duty Managers response, implies that I was making things up and at times he appears to enjoy correcting me, eg. the pizza. My intention was to enjoy a meal with my husband, not look for faults and make complaints in order to get a free meal. We would not recommend the Kings Manor bistro, nor will we be returning.

Friendly, clean hotel

Friendly welcome, clean room, lovely meals in Bistro & good, varied breakfast. Quiet & comfy - would recommend. Nice location away from the busy city centre but close enough to taxi/bus in & out for shopping/ sightseeing.

Stayed for one night, to visit our son and the Christmas markets. Our Club room was superb, extremely spacious and well equipped. The bed was ENORMOUS and so comfortable! I had the best nights sleep I’ve ever had in a Hotel. In the morning we used the Health club facilities. The staff were really friendly and helpful, towels were provided and the pool, sauna and jacuzzi were great. Having two designated lanes for serious swimmers rather than us Sunday morning splashers is a brilliant idea! Everything was clean, modern and well maintained. The changing rooms were spacious, with private changing cubicles, and plenty of lockers. We didn’t eat at the hotel so can’t comment on the bar or restaurants, but will definitely try them on our next visit. This would have been a 5 star review, but for two tiny things - our room was lovely and toasty, but the heating system was very noisy. We had to turn it off at night. The shower controls were also rather confusing, with two dials, and the water temperature seemed to change intermittently. Or perhaps this was because I couldn’t work out the controls...? The bathroom itself was spotless though so no problem there. We did enjoy our fleeting visit, and will definitely be back soon! Collapse

Three nights away in small single occupancy room (115). Room small but adequate with everything you could need. Breakfast staff are brilliant and breakfast is good. Hotel dated in parts but for price it’s a good hotel with good facilities. If your after a good night sleep though may not be the place to stay! Felt like I was sharing my room with a couple on first night, talked all night heard every word and when did sleep the snoring began!!! Mentioned to reception in the morning as really needed some good nights sleep and told adjacent room empty for next 2 nights. Asked to change my pillows as they were hard and lumpy. Response ‘I’ll see what I can do’! Not response I would expect. The second night was better as the adjacent room was empty,but either pillows were not changed or exchanged for another set of lumpy pillows. I suspect not changed. Not impressed! And so to tonight/morning well it’s now 4:39 been awake for 2 hours, feel like i’m sharing a room with someone coughing every 30 seconds, snoring etc Not what you need with a busy day ahead. What I hoped would be a 3 night break, relax and good night sleep has not quite happened, very disappointed. Oh well only 2 1/4 hours until breakfast, Yawn :-0 Collapse
