Mouldy bathroom, chipped sink, average food. Had to eat in bar as restaurant closed for group use. Service very slow. Not the Hol Inn experience I had promised my wife. Hotel is tired. Location for the zoo is superb. And handy bus stop just outside to get into Edinburgh.

Bathroom almost smaller than a telephone booth. Couldn't swing a hamster in room 214. Crooked bath mixer taps, decomposing wood/compost smell coming from the rotting wooden bathroom door. Hand rail over the bath had chrome bezel detached. Water pressure is very low on taps and shower. If you flush the toilet, the water pressure on the raps and shower almost... More

Hotel is well located to mass transit, the airport and the zoo. We had no problem hopping on the bus to go to the central city. Bus stops are right next to the hotel. Buy a bus pass at the airport and you are set. Rooms are small compared to North American rooms, but they are pretty standard for European... More

We stayed here at very short notice having been let down by another hotel in the area, food is good with lots of choice, rooms are clean but somewhat small, only drawback with a double room here is that you can not access the double bed from both sides due to the space, overall reasonable value with friendly staff, we...

Arrived at the hotel mid afternoon there was a small hitch there was nowhere to park as the hotel shares the over spill car par with the zoo. Eventually got through to the car park attendant that we were not going to the zoo we were checking into the hotel. Check in was as good as ever room was large... More

We booked a couple of days during Fringe month as this hotel provided a reasonable price unlike other hotels in town. It's situated slightly outside the main part of Edinburgh but there are plenty of buses you an take from outside the hotel into the centre of town. Day pass on the buses costs just £4 and you can use... More
