It's not a particularly good looking hotel, but who cares when you mainly will see it from the inside? Good value hotel located on the outskirts of Edinburgh, right next to the zoo. Service was excellent and staff were friendly. The receptionist offered free bottles of water when we checked in and there was even a free newspaper in the... More

I'm a platinum ambassador member with the IHG group and stayed in many Holiday Inn / Intercontinental hotels over the last 10 years or so. This is a perfect young family hotel with the location next to the Zoo. Good service, friendly staff. Not a business retreat but a good family stop over and close to the city.

When I arrived check in was very fast with no one waiting, I was greeted as a member of their rewards scheme and was offered a free drink or reward points. When... More

Came to Edinburgh for two nights with a friend to celebrate his birthday. Booked this through last minute as a top secret 4* hotel but was pretty disappointed overall. The service was fine from everyone except a rude waiter, although he did redeem himself by apologising when we explained our issue with his service. Room was mediocre and not 4*... More

Hotel clean, has a good mix of guests business, pleasure. Absolutely great for families, very friendly staff, good selection at breakfast. Ideally situated for visit to zoo. Good bus service outside of the hotel, 3 buses regularly to Princess Street. Excellent restaurant for evening meal, again children welcomed.

It was called the Forte Posthouse back in 1999 and it was also my home for eleven long months. So this time when I got another chance to travel to Edinburgh, I wanted to revisit the hotel which by now had been rechristened as the Holiday Inn Edinburgh. The welcome was warm and I was pleasantly surprised to notice that... More

This is a really good hotel. It is right next to the zoo, and not too far off from the city centre. The hotel is right by the bus stop, so it's pretty convenient. You can get to the city centre in less than 15 minutes. This place was very affordable too compared to the other hotels in the city... More
