Great stay at hard rock

Edinburgh

Excellent location, clean comfortable rooms and helpful friendly staff. Consumables in the pricey side but that’s what you get for prime universal studios positioning. Hotel guests also get automatic fast passes which saves hours on queuing. If you have a car, plenty of places to eat off site. Otherwise, it’s in the hotel or universal city walk, where some places, not all, offer a big meal for an equally big price tag, but are average in taste.

Lovely Hotel - with amazing amenities!

Ayrshire, Scotland

I just loved this hotel from the second I walked through the door. Check in was fast, lots of information given and the all important fast passes for the parks were issued at check in. We had a deluxe room on the 6th floor and it was gorgeous. Really spacious, it had everything we needed and more. The Birthday cake was a really nice touch! The hotel itself offers plenty of places to eat and drink. The pool bar was super friendly with lots going on around the pool - the DJ was fantastic! We used the water taxi to get us to the parks - it was really good, especially because you did not have to go in the big wait lines for security - it was all done before getting on the taxi. There is a short walk to the parks too, which is really lovely. I would highly recommend the hotel - the staff were really fantastic!
