Perfect location close to airport

Decent price; did not tell us that they'll charge 2.5 pounds to take the shuttle to the airport (it's free to get to the hotel). Food mediocre at best and expensive for what they give you.

Edinburgh Farewell

Perfect place for our last day in Scotland. Quick shuttle to the Airport for car return, catching a flight or getting a bus to The Royal Mile. The Lounge and resturant are nice also.

Stay somewhere else

The room was tiny, found hairs on spare pillow, meal was OK but service was not the best. We had 4 different servers so no one knew what we wanted or came to see if we needed anything else. We had a very tight connection to make in Dublin & when I asked to print my boarding pass I was told the computer was away being repaired & they would not do it at the desk for me. I tried several times to get help with this & the manager refused. They wanted to charge us 10 pounds each for a continental breakfast and the shuttle was 1.5 pounds each to the airport. On checking out at 6 AM the desk clerk , who was pleasant, finally agreed to let us get our boarding passes much to the disgust of the other employee. I would say that for the most part the staff were pleasant, it was management that did not want to help.

Strictly for airport access

If you are vacationing in Edinburgh, this is not the place for you. It's a very nice hotel but it is out by the airport and there is NOTHING nearby, no stores, no other restaurants except theirs (which is very nice, by the way). We were looking for a place to buy snacks for the room and there was no store or snack shop anywhere nearby. But the room was clean and modern, the staff friendly and helpful. Very nice hotel.

Convenient to airport

The hotel is very clean and comfortable, and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. It is also very close to the airport, and although we could see planes taking off and landing we could hardly hear them thanks to dual pane windows. It is, however, a little pricey, including the bar and restaurant, and unless you have your own transportation you are stuck there because it's in an industrial area and there isn't much else nearby. Except an even pricier Hilton.

It was excellent. The heater didn't work in our room and within 10 minutes the manager came up with a portable heater to replace the one that didn't work!
