We had a very early flight the following morning and I wanted to stay somewhere close to the airport. I wasn't really expecting such a decent hotel experience. We took the tram out to the airport from Edinburgh town centre and then took the shuttle to the hotel. Check-in was quick and easy. Our room ( a queen bed with...

We stayed at this property a couple years ago when leaving Edinburgh - it was then a Quality Inn, I believe. The transition to Holiday Inn Express has been a good one - the rooms are much nicer and better appointed, and the staff is friendly and courteous. The location isn't as convenient as the airport Hilton - it is...

It is grossly expensive, but you are paying for the convenience of being at the airport. Very clean and nicely appointed room. The restaurant food was marginal at best. Great shuttle service for airport.

Stayed here for 1 night prior to an early morning flight, great hotel, friendly staff and great reliable shuttle bus. The hotel was clean excellent powerful shower. The only downside is the limited menu and the high priced food Definitely wound stay here again

We needed something for a ridiculously early departure so we chose this. We thought - ok, Holiday Inn Express - it's going to be pretty minimal as that has been the experience I have had with this chain in the US. Not so!! The rooms were spacious and comfy with a really modern bathroom that had a great shower. The...

This hotel is on the airport grounds and extremely convenient for access to and from the Edinburgh International airport via bus #3 right in the bus station across from the low price, scenic new TRAM to Edinburgh city center (5 pounds fare, vs 20# taxi and faster). The staff is very good and educated, friendly and informative, and the food...

This recently updated hotel next to Edinburgh Airport is an ideal location for travelers to and from the airport. Within walking distance to the rental car agencies. Our room was spacious and very clean. There was a nice restaurant and pub serving excellent Scottish food at reasonable prices. It is very near the runway so you hear jet noise, which...

The hotel is nice, staff is also helpful. The only challenge is access to the hotel. It is in a very secluded and lonely place. Walking alone from the bus stop in the night is bit scary. Shuttle to the airport is best way to commute anywhere from the hotel. Breakfast served is good.

Thank you Upintheair1980 for your review. I am glad to read you enjoyed the hotel, breakfast and that you found our staff were helpful. Our shuttle bus is the best way to get to and from the airport, it runs 24 hours a day and costs £2.50 for a return ticket. The bus picks you up from our front door...

We have stayed here a number of times before early morning flights, location is perfect, couple of minutes by the shuttle bus to the terminal. The buses are very regular. Rooms are clean, and ok size. We have eaten in the hotel restaurant and food was lovely, little patio area out the back was perfect for our 5 year old...

Having arrived 2 days early for our golf tour of Scotland, we decided to stay here for 2 nights to be close to our connection, and Edinburgh. We arrived in the late morning and were extremely happy that our rooms were available for check in, so we could change and shower after our 7 hour flight. The room was very...
