Stayed here for business; conveniently located near to the airport, a £2.50 shuttle bus takes you to the airport or you can walk as it's not too far. Shuttle runs frequently. Room to a great standard, clean and decent bathroom amenities. Reception staff very happy and cheery for check in and check out. Breakfast opens early (4am for continental, later...

The checkin by the warm and friendly receptionist was very quick. There is no porter to help but there are trolleys for your luggage and lifts to all the floors. Although it was a basic room, it was warm and bright with hot water whenever you want it. No fridge though. No complimentary mineral water even though the room costs...

Booked park and stay, which was good value. Our room was spacious, modern and ultra clean. All staff were very welcoming and able to provide relevant information. Shuttle was very easy to access. Breakfast was the best I've experienced at any Holiday Inn. Everything about the place was spot on!

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and I really can't fault this hotel. The welcome was friendly, professional and informative..... the staff in the restaurant were friendly and professional, the food served was very tasty, the surroundings were calm and comfortable.

I ended up actually being sent here by KLM after a cancellation to a flight. The hotel is about 10 minutes from the airport by Shuttle that seems to run every 10-15 minutes (I think you normally have to pay for this service). Rooms were comfortable, though they were a bit cold and the storage heater on the wall did...

We always stay at this hotel if we have an early morning flight when we go on holiday. This is the 2nd time we have stayed this year. The hotel is a 2 minute bus journey from the airport and they run every 10 minutes. The rooms are a good size with en-suite facilities and tea/coffee facilities. The food in...

This is a typical chain hotel, efficient staff and comfortable room. Couldn't really fault the accommodation. Major gripe was about the shuttle service offered by the hotel (it is a long walk, perhaps 20 minute, from the airport!). No mention is made on the website about the fact that you have to pay £2.50 each for the return journey if...

This Holiday Inn Express is relatively new (or at least, appears to be), and the rooms and common areas are all clean and well-maintained. As you would expect, it is very convenient to the airport, for your early-morning departure and/or late-night arrival. The shuttle service to/from the airport and surrounding area is a nice benefit. The bar and restaurant area...

Decided to use this hotel as we had an early morning flight from Edinburgh airport and the hotel offered securing parking for our car while we were away. Would have been cheaper to find a different hotel and paid for separate parking, but this was convenient and easier. The reception staff were friendly and helpful during booking in. The room...
