I cannot fault this hotel in any way. The staff were polite and informative, room was amazing with great views. Very clean. The breakfast was perfect and great to set you up for a busy day exploring Edinburgh especially the haggis. The bus stop right outside made it easy to leave the car and explore the Christmas markets.

We booked a double and twin room whilst attending a wedding. Plenty of free parking on site, friendly helpful staff, lovely clean spacious rooms and the breakfasts were excellent.

We spent New Years Eve in Edinburgh staying at the Holiday Inn. The room we got was very small and I feel very overpriced however I am thinking that is because of the time of year.

This is far better than the cheaper brands out there. Don't waste your time with them and stay here. There's free parking too! Make sure you book breakfast online and before hand as its £10 for 2 ppl. Otherwise its £10 per person when you get there or £15 per person on the day!
