Nice and a cheap hotel in a perfect location.

Posted 23-Apr-2017
Happy and helpful staff. Room rates including gym, pool, sauna and jacuzzi facilities - a real value for money. The down side was the bed sheet was not changed for 3 days in a row (it was only straightened up)! The exhaust fan in the bathroom seemed like a 'replica' as it did not work. Normally the light switch should have triggered the fan but that was not the case.

Really nice large busy hotel near the zoo

Posted 28-Mar-2017
Pros: The pleasant staff and location.
Cons: It suited us well
Location: The zoo is next door to the hotel. They have a wonderful collection of animals including a pair of Pandas. The bus runs every 10 mins from outside
We really enjoyed our visit to the Holiday Inn. The staff were polite and helpful and friendly. They let us check in at 8 30 in the morning.and answered our questions about the area. The only blip was that on our last night they slid a bill for accommodation under our door (we had of course paid in advance) But they were fine and explained it was a mistake so all was well.

Close hotel for the rugby

Posted 23-Mar-2017
Pros: The room was really comfortable.
Cons: It couldn't cope with the amount of people staying for the rugby.
Location: Rugby at Murrayfield and the zoo.
Really disappointed with the service. The hotel was busy because of the rugby but we waited for ages to check in with only one person at the desk. We then tried to eat at the cafe/bistro but couldn't because there wasn't a table so we went to the restaurant instead. The food on offer was a fixed price buffet meal which was very disappointing and overpriced. Breakfast was really poor too. We had to wait for ages to get a cooked meal and only had one buffet breakfast bar open which was not nearly enough given the amount of people staying. I would stay again, but eat elsewhere.

Comfortable and great location

Posted 23-Mar-2017
This hotel is very clean and comfortable and in a great location on multiple bus routes that take you into central Edinburgh in 10 min and to the airport in 15.
