Good Hotel near to facilities needed

Pros: What we like about the Hotel is the family feel i.e. guests talking to each whether they have met before or not. We thoroughly exjoyed the breakfasts
Cons: Difficult to say because the hotel was carrying out upgrades prior to and during our stay.
Location: As mentioned early, there were lots to do locally such as visit Edinburgh Castle, shopping, choices of restuarants and public houses.
My Son and I had a very plesant stay at Holiday Day Inn Express. We found the accommodation comfortable and the staff very helpful. When requested that booked our tours as well as advise us on places of interest locally. I will definitely stay at Holiday Day Inn Express hotels on other visits to Scotland.

Good hotel in a great location

Pros: Mainly location, clean & comfortable
Cons: Potentially you could be put in a room beside the lifts & noisy passageway
Location: Good selection of restaurants & Pavilion Theatre across the road
A standard holiday inn, the rooms are very clean & comfortable. We were initially allocated a nom beside the lifts & busy passageway but complained it was too noisy, they moved us to a quieter room with no issue. The location of the hotel is a short walk from the station, beside an Italian restaurant we like & across the road from the Pavilion Theatre so well located.

weekend break

Booked this hotel because it was close to the playhouse theatre. It was a very good experience and we would definitely book again. Only minus I could say would be that there was only one chair so not very comfortable for us auld yins. Staff were very helpful.

Ideal location for city sights

Had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. Excellent position for visiting sights in city centre. Handy for Waverley rail station and Princes Street shops. Room very quiet on side of hotel. Would definitely stay again.
