Excellent all round!

Posted 11-Mar-2015
Pros: Location is perfect, Gym is great, price is good, breakfast excellent.. Very good all round!
Cons: Receptionists could smile a bit more? Very serious... kind, friendly, helpful... but serious.. smile!!!!
Location: Perfect for Rugby at Murrayfield. Zoo next door. BUt basically, the whole City is on your doorstep, the door being the bus stop in front of the Hotel
Well, what else can one hope for? In town for a rugby match, a short distance away, I easily arrived at the hotel, parked my car in the available, free of charge car park and forgot about it for three days... in fact there is a bus stop in front of the hotel and all buses take you into the city centre, perfect, in a matter of minutes. I checked in quickly and settled in my clean and comfortable room, changed and made use of the excellent gym and training facilities available, free of charge. I slept well, and enjoyed a complete, wide choice breakfast, well cooked and presented. I walked across the road (well, almost) to Murrayfield, and back, to catch the bus into town. On a rugby weekend, you would expect massively inflated prices... but no, price was extremely reasonable, and excellent price / quality / location / service ratio. I really, seriously enjoyed it and yes, I guess my team winning the match also helped... My first choice when next in Edinburgh

Overnight stay

Posted 22-Feb-2015
The hotel and facilities were as you would expect. The staff were well informed and courteous. The room was small and the bed was tight against the wall. We were only staying overnight so it didn't matter to us. The Room was clean and had a lovely view.

1 night leisure stay in Edinburgh to visit the zoo

Posted 05-Feb-2015
Pros: location to the zoo, staff friendly and helpful
Cons: room size was a bit small
Location: perfect to visit Edinburgh zoo, 1 minute walk to the entrance , 5 minutes from the airport, good stopover hotel if connecting to onward flight
rate was really good for the hotel including breakfast and parking arrived at 1030 am and the room was ready so the reception girl let us straight in to relax room and bathroom was quite small and cramped for 2 people but over all clean and comfortable used the pool and steam room in the health club , good facilities

Reasonable hotel close to Murrayfield hospital.

Posted 28-Jan-2015
The hotel and the room were clean. Staff were very helpful and attentive. On the down side, it doesn't qualify as a 4 stars hotel in my opinion at least with our standards in Egypt. Rooms need some renovation and upgrading. For example there is no minibar in the room. The furniture is out of style. Breakfast is nice and reasonable.

Clean, friendly staff, great location

Posted 09-Jan-2015
Pros: - Breakfast food was delicious - Staff were very friendly - There was lots of storage in the room - Great location
Cons: - Price of evening meals were quite expensive, although quality was good - Would have been nice to have free water in the rooms - Free WiFi
Location: Right next to the zoo, and only a short bus ride into the city centre. Fairly quiet. Free parking was handy too!
Really enjoyed staying at the Holiday Inn in Edinburgh. Friendly staff, tasty breakfast, great storage facilities in the comfortable room, and a great location not far from the city centre. Would recommend this to anyone, and will definitely be booking with Holiday Inn again soon.

Ok

Posted 26-Dec-2014 on Hotels.com
Ok location with easy access to town by bus. Room was generally clean but disappointed with the quality of the bathroom, especially the bath looked tired. Spa was very nice. Couldn't get through to room service all evening. Ended up having to go down to ask for service. Then the order was wrong when they brought it up.

Edinburgh hotel

Posted 24-Dec-2014
Pros: Room was comfortable. Car park is large enough. Excellent transport links to Edinburgh.
Location: Next to the Zoo. Edinburgh is only 15 minutes away, buy a day return ticket for multiple journeys.
We only spent one night at the Holiday Inn but we were well looked after. The hotel was comfortable and the staff were very helpful around the hotel and for information. Yes we would use the hotel again. A big plus is the free car park.

Festive visit

Posted 15-Dec-2014
Have stayed at this hotel before a few years ago. Enjoyed this visit more. Got a good rate including the excellent breakfast. We where doing the Santa Run on the Sunday morning and we managed to get a late check out at 2pm which allowed us to shower and change afterwards. This was a great help to us. The only negative was that the female receptionists where all a bit glum in comparison to the young man who checked us in. Would stay again.
