Had a great stay.

We had a great stay at the Holiday Inn, Edinburgh, where the rooms were very clean and had everything you needed. The staff were excellent, so friendly, welcoming and polite and nothing was too much for them. Continental breakfast was plentiful, with cereal, bread, toast, croissants, muffins, porridge, bacon, eggs, sausage, fruit juice, yogurts and fruit compote. We were upgraded to a better room on arrival, as the hotel had spare rooms....


Amazing hotel in an amazing location

I could not have asked for more from a hotel. On arrival we were given a choice of floors and whether we wanted a room at the front or back of the hotel. The buffet breakfast was lovely, the staff polite and helpful, close to a variety of restaurants and a large entertainment complex. Would definitely stay there again...
