For the price of their deal I thought the price was excellent. I payed for the evening meal and breakfast in advance and was stuffed and satisfied after both. Yes you can get a better meal in a fancy restaurant but they are not trying to compete with this level. The staff efficiency was impressive and I will be going... More

The room itself was much as you would expect. Comfortable, impersonal but clean and good budget. There is always something to criticise if you are thorough enough for example one of my sheets had a tear in the bottom and yes the ground floor is laid out strangely. I have read other reviews complaining of this but it didn't particularly... More

Stayed here for three nights at the end of the Easter holidays. This hotel is a fantastic location for the zoo, which we could see from our room. There are frequent bus services into the city centre which is only a very short journey. For £3.50 you can get a day bus ticket which you can use to hop on... More

I stayed here on 25th March of this year. It is in a good position,next to the zoo,and not too near the city centre. Over the years,I've stayed at loads of Holiday Inns,all over the country,and have been very satisfied with them,this one was different!. Upstairs,it was like any other holiday Inn,nice room,all the essentials you might need for a... More

Despite the fact that the hotel was very busy, we were given a very warm welcome and we were delighted to get a complimentary upgrade to a room on the front of the hotel with a lovely view looking over to the Pentland Hills. The room itself was clean and more than adequate with water provided and all the necessary... More

Stayed here 2 nights over Easter weekend. Lovely room on 4th floor with a great view!!! Nice clean room, pleasant reception staff. Brilliant for the zoo next door. Only downside was the parking. Every bay was full, and the empty ones had a concrete post in the way. V badly designed. You can however use the zoo carpark, which is... More

A nice enough hotel which is easy to find and has a car park - which some of the more central hotels lack. Edinburgh city centre is a 15-20 min bus ride away which is £1.50 per adult or £3.50 for a day pass. The hotel is right next door to the zoo making it very handy for zoo visiting.... More

Really nice third stay. Lovely food in the bar, especially the popcorn rocky road! Seemed really family friendly but was not noisy, even at night. Bus stops just outside so easy access into town until midnight. Really handy for the zoo. Would recommend especially for families.

Our main purpose of our stay was to visit Edinburgh Zoo next door and Edinburgh Centre. Very smart hotel, we even had a slight 'zoo view', we stayed in a standard room but you would never guess as it was very clean and stylish. Friendly and helpful staff with good knowledge of the local area. Very well located, was easy... More
