Nice room

The beds were large and comfortable. The temperature controls were perfect. I slept well. It's close to a bus stop that takes you to city center. Parking is free. Internet is NOT free.

Practically perfect in every way

The hotel is lovely. The pool is small but all you need, with jacuzzi and sauna. The restaurant/bar is expensive but has some tastey treats on the menu that are worth the price tag. The rooms are comfortable. I feel the best thing about this hotel though is the location. From the windows of the rooms you can see the mountains and fields - stunning to wake up to. The transport links are fabulous. We didn't wait more than 5 mintues at any time of the day or night for a bus including a bus right outside to the airport. We couldn't have chose anywhere better.

Edinburgh Holiday Inn

Staff was the best and tried to meet every need. They even provided a no cost upgrade once they found out it was our Honeymoon. Food was GREAT and the Staff was very friendly. The Hotel is a little outside of town but that made it much more quite and the rest was better.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Save your money on a taxi or gas to drive to locations. The buses run all day and night in Edinburgh, and the hotel flyer you can get upon entering the hotel tells you which buses to take into the city and back.

Nice stay to prepare me for freshers week at university

After catching a plane 4pm local time, an 13 hour flight, 15 min express train, 2 undergounds, 5 hour train ride, and a 10 minute taxi I was ready to sleep. The Holiday Inn was very welcoming and helpful. I was able to get room service after 9pm and was aided in getting a taxi and with four enormous bags of luggage in the morning. They made a long trip easier so the next day I was refreshed for university. **one negative: Thin walls, but I have found this true of most European hotels I have stayed at.

Very nice hotel, great location!

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. They greeted us at the door, and gave our 4 year old daughter a balloon and treat! Check-in was very fast, and were very happy to find the room clean and as described. Great location with city bus stop directly in front of hotel so we were able to hop on and off all day! We would definately stay there again!
