Booked because we were visiting the Zoo and the hotel offered a 2 night "panda package" which included zoo tickets, accommodation, breakfast and dinner on one night. On the whole everything was good, the kids loved the zoo, pandas and the hotel pool. The room while dated was clean and comfortable and we had a good view of the Flamingos... More

Whilst booking our accommodation through Expedia for somewhere else, they managed to mess it up! Thankfully I asked to transfer accommodation to the Holiday Inn next door to the Zoo where I didn't have to pay a penny thanks to Expedia's error! The hotel is massive, modern, friendly with a great selection of food / drink on the premises. We... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn next to the Zoo, located between the airport and the city center, it’s an easy bus ride to tourist and shopping areas and Haymarket train station. Nice hotel, at the front desk, Nicola and her staff were wonderful, and the restaurant staff was also friendly and helpful. WiFi is free if you sign up... More

A clean hotel immediately next door to Edinburgh Zoo, not too far away from City Centre, Gyle Business Park, or the Airport. The hotel is nothing fancy, it is a typical Holiday Inn. By that I mean it is clean, comfortable, safe, with a standard room service menu. The rooms had free wifi, personal safe, fridge etc. The price for... More

I stayed in the Holiday Inn for 5 days in late May on business and returned in early June for a two day personal stay. From my first contact at reception I must congratulate all the staff for the effecient and friendly manner I/we were met with. My/our rooms were spacious,clean and comfortable admittedly perhaps a bit dated. During my... More

I had to stay at this hotel as I booked last minute and it was the only hotel left in the area within my hotel allowance. I stayed for two utterly depressing nights whilst working just outside of Edinburgh. Outside of the reception area, the corridors etc are quite frankly depressing. After a long drive up from Leeds in the... More

We had a pleasant stay at the Holiday Inn next to the zoo. This is very convenient for whoever wants to visit zoo, especially coming by car as they have parking for free. The staff was very nice and always trying to help. A simple swimming pool which did the job just to cool off the legs after a day... More

The windows opened about 2 inches, although it was high up o thought they would open more. The food in the restaurant was ok, Breakfast was ok but not too hot. Warmed... More
