Birthday surprise

by Sarahkken on 25 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

Stayed here for 2 nights (17th/18th Jan) found it very welcoming. Room was spotless. Breakfast was good. Abit of a walk into the centre, was tired of walking after the stay, but hotel still in a good location. Perfect for parking. Would stay in this hotel again.

clean friendly hotel

My wife & I stayed here for a short weekend break ( 21st - 23rd Jan ) We requested a high floor, & we were allocated a top floor room -room 410, so we were happy with that. We arrived at the hotel at 11 30 a.m., however, we were pleasantly surprised to be informed that we could check into our room immediately, which saved us hanging around for a couple of hours or so !

Just what was needed

by pippin33 on 24 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

Edinburgh can be an expensive place to stay but this low cost hotel was just what four friends needed for overnight accommodation after a whisky tasting experience.

Rooms were clean, well furnished and had all the facilities required including ensuite shower room and air conditioning (essential in Leith in January!!!). Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is probably a bit bargain basement standard but there is a choice of a few cook...

Also it is just across the street from the Royal Yacht Britannia so we had a head start for one attraction! It takes about 20 minutes to get into the city and also goes to the airport.(1 hour ish) We had a twin room on the 4th floor as requested. It was well appointed. Storage space was rather limited, but more than adequate for a 3 day stay. It was very clean.Te...

Lovely rooms

by Ann D on 20 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

The rooms at this holiday inn express have been refurbished to a very standard. Modern decor and well laid out. We had a very comfortable king size bed and room very tastefully decorated. Breakfast is standard holiday inn express fare...nothing to write home about..just what you expect. At Ocean Terminal for shopping and the Royal Yacht Brittania. Frequent buses into town ...no 22...but plenty of interesting eateries and bars nearby.
