We chose this slightly out of town hotel because we were driving and didn't want the hassle of a drive into the city centre.The driving directions given on the website however are a bit confusing-be prepared to drive a couple of miles along Queensferry road towards the city centre.We thought we must have taken the wrong route as Queensferry road does not appear on houses lining the route!
Once we found it the area is fine-there's a retail park with a Sainsbury's on the other side of the road for a cheaper option to the hotel restaurant.Bus services into the city centre are every 10 minutes but it is too far out to walk.
Holiday inns tend to vary across the brand-this one is fine-we paid £70 advance purchase rate including breakfast which was good value.Rooms are clean and spacious and the entrance foyer is also clean and modern looking
