    Very good

    pleasant staff, comfortable room, a bus station outside the hotel leading from the airport to town.

    You need to carry the luggage through some flights of stair before arrival at the reception if travel by public bus.

    Very good

    The Holiday Inn was very appropriate as I was meeting upwith family from Canada and Ireland and we all managed to obtain accommodation together in this hotel

    Only stopped two nights-did not spend a lot of time in the hotel-busy seeing the sights of Edinburgh

    Fabulous

    Its location. Corstophine is a busy town with a wide range of local services.

    We could have been give more towels. Stayed in 3 star hotels in Italy after the Holiday Inn. They all provided more towels.

    Very good

    Staff very friendly and helpful. Great location for Edinburgh Zoo. Family room big and spacious and clean.

    Food could have been a lot better. Room service food very poor, and evening meal expensive for the quality received.

    Fabulous

    Late check in was great as we arrived at 1am. Stayed here to watch Rugby 7s at Murrayfield. Bar was open till people stopped drinking (3am) bar staff were friendly. Out of town location good for not being disturbed when you do get to bed. Saved a lot by being out of city and a 5min taxi ride back in is only £8 (with free parking at hotel).

    Breakfast was £10, so we went to a pub and had it for £5.99. Room service meals were a bit pricey, but at least they were available - spaghetti, soup and a smoked salmon sandwich at 3am.

    Drinks expensive.

    Good

    Great view from window, comfortable room

    Very inconvenient if you don't have a car or don't arrive by Taxi. You have to lug your luggage up a hill then you go up steps to a door which has a sign which says reception when you enter there is no reception desk only more stairs which leads to a long hallway followed by more stairs and finally a reception desk. The reception people are well trained rto try to get more money out of you by asking if you want Breakfast only 10 pounds (about $16) only if you say yes now. If you say yes in the morning it will be 14 pounds (well over $20). Also do you want to amke a dinner reservation for tonight). The hotel is not close to many restaurants so you may be tempted to say yes but suggest you take bus to West End where there are many less expensive and better placess to eat Also they charge 3.25 lbs (about $5) for a cup of black coffee in the morning. The room was nice though but avoid the services even to use the internet is 5 pounds per hour and you have to pay for at least an hour. I'm sorry but I felt ripped off by these people..

    We came up from Nottingham for the Ice Hockey game and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. The Hotel was excellent, in terms of service and staff and it was so easy to get about with the excellent transport services.
