We have stayed here a few times, but this time in a refurbished room was excellent it was very comfortable and the lighting is a lot better, there are a lot of electric sockets also usb charging points near the bed. The staff were excellent especially on the reception desk sorted out a minor problem straight away. The bar is a little expensive. The breakfast is good, you can have fruit, cereal, scrambled egg sausage and baked beans and plenty of tea and coffee all in with the price.

Great location for the royal Yacht. Centrally situated but quiet, in Leith which is a short journey from Edinburgh city centre. Rooms good if a bit small. Friendly staff, especially the tall man with beard and long hair who serves breakfast - a smile and cheery greeting for everyone!

Comfortable newly refurbished room within walking distance of Ocean Terminal and The Royal Yacht Britannia.We found all the staff at this hotel to be helpful and friendly.We were pleasantly surprised at the wide range of choice at the breakfast buffet and although very busy there was no congestion at the food.Thank You All.

The hotel was great with a good breakfast buffet. The rooms also appeared to be newly renovated. For a family of four, the double with a sofa bed room was quite cramped which made moving around a challenge. However, we all fit in and worked around each other. It was perfect for a first time visit to Edinburgh and we would definitely stay here again!

The hotel was really well situated and on the main bus routes so it was easy to get to the city center. The Hotel itself was clean and neat and the staff were welcoming. We had booked a family room as we had our daughter with us, but with the sofa bed pulled out there was no space in the room at all. It wasn't bad just a little small so wanted to warn other travelers.

Holiday Inn in good location next to Ocean Terminal. Plenty of shops to amuse you,eating places,cinema and the Britannia ship to look around. The hotel was of a high standard.

Stayed here for a night while attending a concert in Edinburgh. The hotel is a little way from the centre of Edinburgh but is well served by buses. We walked to the city and it was a pleasant, if uphill, stroll. The hotel is nice and modern, refurbished rooms are lovely. Breakfast was included and was more then adequate.

Included in the price is an adequate breakfast. The room that we had was slightly on the small side just around the beds but plenty of space for a one night stay. A shopping centre is opposite so plenty of facilities and transport links. Only £8.50 in a taxi from the city centre. The only downside is the parking was very in demand. Nothing bad to say.

Recently stayed here for 2 nights. Rooms are very clean and staff were extremely helpful. I stayed here with my husband, 5 week old baby and my parents. The staff were very helpful to ensure that our room was big enough for all the baby things we had and we were even shown another room to compare sizes. Breakfast was fine! Good location and would stay again.

What you'd expect from a Holiday Inn Express. We stayed for one night and everything was spot on. Staff were really helpful and the room was newly refurbished. Breakfast is a typical buffet but there is plenty of it. Plenty of free car parking on site. I would definitely stay again and it is a perfect location for the Royal Yacht.

My wife and i stayed 1 night with some friends as we flew into Edinburgh, and spent the day touring the castle and the Golden mile. Hotel was modern, room was quite nice and bed was comfortable. It is a little out of the way, but an easy bus ride to the tourist area. some great restaurants just around the corner. Breakfast was excellent, lots of options. Although we didn't spend much time it was well worth the stop over! Would return for sure

This is a good hotel that is about a 20 min bus ride from the city (there are even night buses). If you don't mind being away from the action it is a good choice as a lot cheaper than hotels in the city. Breakfast is included and there is a lot of choice. The rooms have recently been refurbished so they were to a good standard.

Although we have stayed here before I am prompted to post this review following our recent stay as a "thank you" to the hotel's staff. Despite being very busy with a large party attending a Britannia crew reunion they were friendly and efficient (as before). The rooms have been upgraded since our last visit and are very comfortable. The bed gave us as good as sleep as our own.

Don't overlook this hotel as an option for a night in Edinburgh because it is not right in the centre. It's a great hotel in a lovely location with good parking and very easy access to transport into the centre. The rooms are a fine size for a night or two and the location at the waterfront means it is that bit quieter than you might find being near to Princes Street or the Royal Mile. There is a bus stop right outside the front of the hotel where you can get a bus that takes right onto Princes ... Read more
