“Just a great place for the airport.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Possibly the cleanest airport hotel I've ever stayed in, recently refurbished I expect, the bedroom was spotless with the bathroom shining clean.Much better than when it was Quality Inn. Dinner choice was as good as you could expect for this style of hotel and reasonable priced and well presented, drinks accordingly. Good breakfast included in tariff and available from very early on. Only a short trip to the terminal so no reason to miss a flight. Altogether a good stop-over.

Stayed overnight prior to early morning flight. Friendly and efficient staff, clean and comfortable rooms with good facilities including free Wifi. Transfer service to and from the terminal quick and friendly.
Dinner at night was good and reasonably priced and the breakfast had a good choice of hot and cold food. Lost one star because the drinks were expensive. Over £11 for a pint and large wine. "false economy" in my opinion; bar would have been busier and takings more if prices reduced.
Will not hesitate however to use again when flying from Edinburgh.

We spent the night at this near airport hotel and left the car in their secure car park while we went off to Vegas. Very clean hotel and it has comfy beds in nice rooms. Breakfast was good and the staff were very nice.

This is a good airport hotel: clean,comfortable with helpful staff and a good shuttle service.
Ideal if you have an early flight.

Hot breakfast is served from 6.30 . My only complaint was the poor quality sausages.

Excellent hotel which is much improved since HI took over. Stayed there on a Park and Fly deal which was very convenient. Friendly staff, clean and modern throughout, free wifi and breakfast from 4.30. Food offering was reasonable.

Only niggle is the bus service. First, why not include the transfer in the room rate rather than having to buy tickets. Second, the bus does not actually stop at the hotel if no one is outside (we missed it due to standing in the entrance but not outside and it whizzed passed and missed hotel guests).

Will use again.

Hotel is ideal but make sure you leave plenty time to get to the airport. I parked my car at the hotel and just missed a bus. 20 minute wait and then tour round one of the long stay car parks stopping at every pick up point. Not ideal if you are pressed for time

HIxEdiAirportGM, General Manager at Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh Airport, responded to this review, 1 week ago
Hi HesterDundee_Angus thanks for your ideal review. Hotel utilizes a shuttle service for transport to/from hotel. The shuttle costs £2.50 for a return journey and runs on a circuit to/from airport and can take 5-20 minutes to get from hotel to the airport. For guests who leave parking to the last very moment, maybe self parking directly at the Airport would be a better plan. Thanks so much, Jason

We stayed one night as we had an early flight the next morning. The check in was easy and smooth with nice and welcoming staff on the desk. We had stayed here before when it was the Quality Inn. I must say since Holiday Inn has taken over as to what I remember, the rooms are a lot better. The quality of the bedding was lovely, the room had a really nice clean and fresh feel about it. The bathroom was lovely with a great shower. We had a meal before we went to bed which we cant complain about, it was delicious, however, the cost of the drinks were VERY pricey which was a shame. I really don't think there is a need to charge as much as they do. We didn't sleep too great (hence giving a 4 star rating and the price of the drinks otherwise I would give 5 stars) as the room was on the hot side for us (personal choice) . There was a GREAT selection / choice in the morning at breakfast - excellent. Thank you to all staff for making our stay prior to holiday enjoyable, especially the cleaners and housemaids - an excellent job they do to keep the ratings high. We will definitely book again Thank you.
