We stayed at this hotel when visiting Edinburgh zoo .. which is literally next door. Despite being a part of a chain, it was still very good. We had a spectacular view from our room and a lovely swim and sauna before a very nice buffet breakfast. Can't really fault it.

we stayed here in September 2014 as a result of overbooking at our original choice hotel. It is a very large nondescript hotel located beside the zoo. The amenities state there are two bars which is incorrect as the bar and grill is in fact a restaurant. The bar/lounge has no character which is in keeping with the rest of... More

Your typical large chain hotel. Only there for one night. Room was clean and comfortable. A real shame that they don't give unlimited free wi-fi and charge so much in addition to what has already been paid for the room. If you want to make it a base for seeing the sights, it is more than walking distance from the... More

Stayed here for 1 night. Everything from start to finish was great. One person worth mentioning is "Barry" he was working behind the bar a charismatic chap with a can do attitude, such a nice guy and a great attitude for customer service. I shall without doubt be back!

During the checkin process, I was also not asked if I needed any help with my cases to my room! I later rang reception about paper and... More

This is a clean and well run holiday inn. Good location with just a short taxi ride into the centre of Edinburgh. Service is very friendly and rooms are quiet and comfortable in what is a busy hotel with a lot of large groups using it as a base. Great views of mountains too when the cloud is gone. The... More
