My family and I stayed a week in Holiday Inn Express. It was very cosy and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is very good. There are number of buses going to the city centre so transportation is easy and cheap.
All in all,we enjoyed our trip in Edinburgh and we loved our hotel.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled with family

The hotel is situated quite a way from the city centre, which makes things easier if you are driving. However, there are plenty of shops and restaurants in the nearby Ocean Terminal complex. It has the comfortable, airy and well-equipped rooms you expect from a relatively modern hotel. Breakfast is included and it helps to have sharp elbows when using the self-service buffet.

2 night stay whilst visiting Scotland with family. Very happy with overall service, staff friendly and polite. Room spacious and clean, although we did have to ask for a second bath towel in our room, as did our son and girlfriend too. Breakfast nice with plenty of choice of food.
Bus stop right outside for easy access into the city. Great sightseeing and lovely places to dine.
Reasonably priced hotel for location. We would definitely consider staying here on a future visit.

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel in Edinburgh and it is very nice. The bed is very comfortable and large enough for my 6'4" tall husband. The rooms clean. The breakfast was included and very good. Everyone was helpful and nice. I would stay there again. There is a bus stop right outside of the hotel that can take you all over town. There is also a mall down the street.

Room Tip: All of the rooms that I saw are nice. Our air condition made a little nice at times but my sister and her husband had a room next to ours and they had no noice.

Stayed for 1 night with our dog, nice quiet area, clean, good food, tea and coffee in room, staff very friendly and helpful. Plenty of buses into town centre. My partner is disabled, unfortunately all the disabled bays were full with other guest who weren't disabled and we ended up having to park on the street

Dear 706willy,
Thank you so much for reviewing your recent stay with us.
I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay and found our hotel to be clean and our staff to be friendly and helpful.
I'm sorry that you were unable to find a free disabled parking space in our car park. We do try our utmost to ensure that only those displaying badges use these bays but it can be difficult for us when the hotel is very busy. If you could contact us prior to your next arrival we will ensure that a bollard is placed in a space for you.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel soon.
Kind regards,
Andrew
General Manager
