“Fab stay! ”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

Amazing stay at hotel indigo stayed for two nights for my boyfriends birthday, i'd asked for a cake or something that said happy birthday to be put in the room and we were greeted with a cake! Room really good amazing facilities including complimentary mini bar, breakfast not great only thing that lets it down but plenty of places nearby to have breakfast. Toiletries in room really nice aswell and room service not extortionally priced. Would definitely stay again :)

Stayed here overnight with husband and was not impressed. Poor room location right nexr to lifts. Dark room as no view backed onto wall with noise from air conditioning unit all night. Worse thing is breakfast very poor continental and cooked option. Have had better experience in Premier Inn dont waste your money.

Dear Coolbadger77,

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments online. It is unfortunate that this visit was a disappointment on several aspects most especially with the condition of the breakfast served and the air conditioning unit. I appreciate you letting us know about these unsatisfactory circumstances as this is our best means of improving what we can offer to achieve complete guest satisfaction.

The Indigo

I booked into the Indigo because I had a great experience with the chain in London.

I was not disappointed.

The room had a very similar modern style and colorful style to the London hotel.

That included a modern TV, a nice settee to relax on and read the paper ontwo huge windows, hardwood floors, plenty of lighting and a stocked bar fridge.

My room was on the 3rd floor facing the street and time to time there was some vibration from the tram but otherwise it was quite quiet.

The air conditioning worked fine.

The Internet was fast and free but a bit difficult to access.

The bed was very comfortable with lots of pillows.

The bathroom was modern and clean with a choice of water jets.

Concierge was very helpful in assisting to find some nearby shops.

The hotel is located in a great part of town.

I highly recommend and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Would suggest the back of the hotel might be a bit quieter but I found the front to be fine.

My wife and I stayed on a Saturday night. We were part of a wedding party. I was worried that it was going to be noisy as it is in town and next to a busy road but I was surprised by how quite it was. We had a room at the rear of the hotel and it was great.

The rooms were clean, well furnished and stylish. The bathroom was modern and clean.

The staff were polite and friendly. They went the extra mile to make sure the wedding party were happy serving drinks into the early hours.

We had the cooked breakfast in the morning and it was good.

All in all a good experience.

I have stayed here a number of times and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Amongst the most stylishly decorated and well equipped rooms of any hotel I've stayed at for years.

The breakfast was absolutely first rate as usual. The Full Scottish was cooked to order and included delicious black pudding and haggis. I had a poached egg which was perfectly cooked.

I woke up a few times as I was too hot and the view was 2nd rate - an extractor duct and the rear of a shopping complex, but overall these two unfortunate features didn't detract from the overall stay.

Amazing hotel with a fabulous, helpful and friendly staff. Very modern room with all the comforts you could want. The only hotel that we could find that offers 2 king beds (closer to a small queen) in a single room. The hotel is located in easy walking distance to most of the major tourist attractions. The Turquoise Thistle restaurant offers up some wonderful food. When booking directly on the Ihg website, make sure to join their members program first. You get great deals and could receive an email offer after booking with options to upgrade. One that we took was dinner for 2 at £32. Be aware that not everything on the menu is included. Also if you have mobility issues make sure that you mention it when booking. There is an elevator but our room was on the first floor in the back- we literally had to walk up a short flight of stairs to walk down another to get to it. This would be a problem for anyone that can't really climb more than 5 stairs.

IHG are really getting this one right. I've stayed in Liverpool under the same banner - see review - superb. Now to Edinburgh, the minuses (please understand these are frankly tiny) as with other indigos the communal areas are quite small and very 'open plan', I can live with this - they are clean and aesthetically pleasing though. Bar prices fine and service levels high. Restaurant was shut tonight, but plenty to be found nearby (sorry indigo I'd have put £70 in the bank tonight, but bar menu not enough when away and this is my indulgence). Now the icing on the cake - as always even with minor critique this chain deliver on the rooms! Simply excellent. Mine was to the front on the second floor; beautiful features, well glazed, air con and a free soft drink and snack mini bar. Just a shower, but a very good one - duplex with rainfall, and nice products. The package adds up to an eclectic mix for business travel, which I love. For a leisure night I wouldn't hesitate. I have now silly high points with IHG (platinum ambassador) automatic upgrade at intercontinental - where would I go? Sorry indigo every time I really do love it.
