The Holiday Inn near the Edinburgh Zoo is typical Holiday Inn, in fact it is a typical USA type of hotel, period. The food is expensive, the drinks are expensive and as with all US hotels including pay by day WiFi. We were wrapping-up our two week western European vacation in Edinburgh and it was the very first hotel in which we paid for WiFi.
The one caveat here is that if you join their frequent guest program they will waive the fee.
The rooms are clean, the water is hot and it is not too far from EDI.
Stayed here 2 nights and it's a fantastic location for getting into the city centre. There's free parking and the bus stop is right outside. Tried the restaurant and the food was better than expected for a holiday inn. We were on the 6th floor (top) and had lovely views - if u ask for a room at the front they will b even better as u will have a panorama of Edinburgh City and right out over the forth!
Only downside was no free wifi!
B&B was very nice, easy to find, close to bus routes and only 20mins walk to murrayfield. Room was spacious and clean, shower was brilliant. Of course this a b&b so room layout was a challenge when getting ready I.e plugs close to mirrors for hair/make up
We only used the room for a sleep and shower in the morn so thought what I paid was steep for that but it was one of the cheapest around

Fabulous little hotel for a weekend away exploring Edinburgh. Tidy rooms, nice staff and a cooked breakfast. All for a cheaper price per person than other more mainstream hotels with screaming kids and whatnot. The bathroom may have been a bit meh, but I would definitely stay again and reccomend to a friend :)
Murrayfield is best known as the home of Murrayfield Stadium and the Scottish Rugby Union. The area is an affluent region of Edinburgh and the highly sought after Easter Belmont Road lies adjacent to Murrayfield Golf Course. Visitors can take advantage of the area's location near Edinburgh Zoo and the central Haymarket train station.
