Stayed at mortonhall for 3 nights near the end of November cost 60 plus a 1. 50 online booking fee (would have been better off just phoning). Long drive leading down to the site entrance is a narrow road with passing places. Booking in was easy and the girl on reception gave us a run down on where to eat and drink in Edinburgh.

The site itself is large but was not busy when we were there so had the pick of pitches.

The shower block (near the stables bar) is 1 of the best we have used! the under floor heating is a great touch and means its never cold!

Eat at the stables bar prices and service were both second to none.

As stated before bus stop at entrance and a short journey into the city, so much to do in Edinburgh 3 days was no where near enough so we will be returning soon

The main negative is outweighed by the positives.

On the down side, the pitches appear to be the minimum safety distance apart. The site is huge (more than doubled with a temporary tent site for the Festival - the secure lockers at Reception were a nice touch). So it was frustrating that most of the motorhomes were put cheek by jowl on adjacent pitches in one area when the site was 90% empty. Alternate pitches would have been more relaxing. Next time (out of season) we'd ask for somewhere to enjoy views of the site rather than other vehicles. Or (in high season, when the site's full) we'd need to put up a screen for privacy when we sit outside, and to deflect folk passing close by to get to the toilet block and CPD disposal.

On the plus side, the toilet block we used was clean (there are several blocks dotted over the site), the showers and hair dryers are free. Not heated though - the shower was a quick one! And there are lots of walks to enjoy in the estate.

Our primary reason for returning - and we will - would be the quick and easy access by bus into town. Buy a day ticket for hopping on and off - we went all the way to see The Britannia at Leith, came back to visit Edinburgh Castle, went out to the Botanics and back, stopped off in Morningside on the way home to stock up at Waitrose, all for 3.50 each. (Exact fare, no change given. )

Stayed here twice last year. Ideal base to explore Edinburgh. Staff extremely helpful. Spotless site and facilities cant recommend it enough. Plenty of room on the pitches. Well kept grounds. Children's play park is great. Quiet enough site away from hustle but close enough. Plenty of eateries nearby bus stop at end of road is very handy for easy access to Edinburgh. Loads of tourist attractions nearby.

Great site which is well located to visit city centre. Plenty showers and toilets which were clean (did have hundreds of daddy long legs!). Surroundings are lovely in walled park area and plenty space between each unit. Also a small pub/shop on site which we didn't use but looked nice.

Little play park for kids, quiet and overall a fab site. We will be back.

Could do with more lighting at night time.

This site is very handy for Edinburgh, very easy access to the site with ideal bus service just outside. Shop is just right. Pitches were a little too close, we were put on a campervan pitch even though we'd said we had a tent awning too, didn't think anything of it until we awoke the following morning with a larger van parked right up to the awning, lovely couple, luckily with a sense of humour. Asked at reception why someone had been put so close and found out we'd been put on the wrong pitch and shouldn't have put the awning up, hey ho, all was ok though as we were only staying one night. Lovely atmosphere to the site too as almost everyone was there for the Fringe and touring Edinburgh so like-minded people. Will be back to stay here as I think perfect.

Reviewer: Jack_igm 26 reviews from this member

Stayed here for 5 nights and I have to admit, prior to coming I was alittle put off by reading some of the other reviews about how close the pitches were. I did find them a little close however not as bad as I had imagines, however I did have a fully serviced pitch which might have made the difference.

Staff were very friendly and helpful and the site was spotlessly clean as were the toilets. Toilets were in such good condition and so clean they could almost have been from a caravan club site.

Small shop on site with basics and also a games room and TV room. If visiting in August book tickets early to see the Tattoo as this was the main reason we went and we really enjoyed it.

Also visit the castle for a good day out and the zoo as weel, although you need to book in advance if you want to see the only Giant Pandas in the UK.

Also visit the Royal Yacht Britannia for an insite on how the royals live.
