The recent take over and upgrade of Quality Inn by Holiday Inn Express at Edinburgh Airport has improved this hotel. The rooms although simple are bright, very clean and functional. Beds are comfy and a good size. A complimentary hot breakfast is provided from 4 am which is great if you have an early flight. The restaurant provides a reasonable... More

We stayed here both before our flight to Gran Canaria and on our return. It is perfect, with hot shower, comfy bed and clean rooms. We had a meal the first night which was great and breakfast on both occasions. A regular shuttle bus takes you to and from the terminal. Highly recommended and cheap if you can book early.

We arrived at the airport but couldn't find any signs for the courtesy bus to the hotel. It transpired you had to walk right through the airport car park and out the other side. Check in was slow. The room and amenities were all OK. We left in the morning at 6.00am and ate at the airport as the hotel... More

Dear TheFeb Thank you for staying with us. I am sorry that it was not straight forward to find the shuttle from the airport to the hotel. All car rental/long stay car parking and hotel shuttles leave from the area beyond the undercover car park and our shuttle leaves from stance 3 which is operated by Secure Airparks. Our team...

This was not the easiest place in the world to find. After arriving at the airport I looked around briefly for a way to summon the hotel shuttle but didn't see any signs or courtesy phones, although they were probably there. Note here: the shuttle, if you can find it, is not free. There's a rather whiny poster at the... More

The welcome was good. The room immaculate. The bed and pillows so comfortable. Tea and coffee supplied. Very good breakfast. Reception magicked up an emery board for me - very helpful. Parking while away on holiday is easy and well managed. And there is free wifi. My only minor gripe is the long trail I had to make - with... More

Holiday Inn express isn't a top end hotel but our stay here was fab. The hotel was spotless and the staff were just great. Had such a laugh and the manager just couldn't have been more helpful. Would stay here again for the laugh alone!

I have used this hotel on a number of occasions before early flights. Service etc at the hotel remains very good and the rates which include parking for up to 14 days are very competitive with the airport carparks. Definitely recommend.

Easy and friendly check in, lots of staff, very friendly and welcoming, huge room with great big walk in shower, lovely fish and chips. Just a tad pricey in the restaurant. This hotel has everything you need. Secure parking just opposite the hotel. We found it to be perfect for the airport. Will go back if prices stay keen!

As a one night stop over before a local meeting the hotel was better than I expected. A quality refresh to the rooms, lobby and bar made for an easy and pleasant respite after an evening flight from Bristol. Staff were pro-actively helpful and friendly especially on the front desk. Did not eat in the bar/restaurant. Rooms are heated with... More

Checkin and checkout by the same person, Sara, are events I would like to forget. They were so bad, they will be engraved in my mind forever. When asked a question, she reponded "we do not do that here", despite this happening at other IHG hotels. Two weeks earlier, stayed in three other IHG hotels and received a letter welcoming... More
