Positive Reviews


The great location works

Most travellers book at James Craig Court for the ideal location it provides, as you will literally be about five minutes' walk from most local attractions. Royal Mile, Waverly and Princes Street are conveniently just around the corner.


Good TV signal

Guests could enjoy watching all the TV channels at James Craig Court as the signal was strong, while the Wi-Fi was also reported to be really good. You can rely on a good connection here which students felt quite confident about.


Convenience of laundry facilities

The on-site laundry facilities have proved to be quite convenient, while some students actually end up making new friends while doing their laundry. There are also two dryers in the same area, so no need to hang your washing out.

Negative Reviews


Needs a heap of TLC

Visitors have described the furniture as quite run down, while the linens have all seen better days. Guests did not find any soap in the bathrooms, while blinds were crooked and the windows needed frosted glass so that they were not see through.


Very noisy location

If you think you are going to enjoy a quiet, calm and relaxing evening, you better think twice. Guests have commented that because the walls are thin you can hear every suitcase that gets wheeled past, and every conversation that goes on within close proximity. Make sure you bring your ear plugs with.


Saggy bed

If you have back problems you might want to think twice about the beds at this accommodation. They have been reported to be very soft, and most of them are also sagging in the middle. If you end up in one of these rooms you could try turning the matress.
