I originally chose this hotel because I needed a place near the Edinburgh Airport for our group of 26 to spend the night after we landed and until our pilgrimage started the next morning, and Holiday Inn Express offered the best price. I could not have been more satisfied. It is a 5 minute ride from the airport (free shuttle...

This hotel is close to the airport, so it's very convenient. The rooms are well-sized, clean, very basic, no extras. The bathroom is nice and large. They have breakfast available at 4am, which is great, something that all airport hotels should do for their guests who have to leave super early. Staff was efficient, check-in and check-out were quick.

Stayed here for one night last weekend as we had an early flight on Sunday morning. Check in and out was quick, room was clean, spacious and nicely decorated (the bathroom was particularly impressive!). Did not eat here so can't comment on the food. Had a good night's sleep (well as good as you can when you have to be...

We stayed here the night prior to our flight. Bedroom nicely furnished and spotless. No restaurant as in previous Quality Hotel, just a bar serving poor quality and un imaginative food at restaurant prices. Drinks VERY pricey. No atmosphere and we had to endure a football match from large screen whilst eating. Soundproofing very poor and I had to phone...

Hi kerriekhowe, thank you for your review and I am sorry you had a disappointing and disturbed stay. I am though happy to read the team ensured the nearby guests quieted down quickly and that reception offered a kind gesture upon departure. We all miss our La Bonne Auberge restaurant but the good news is that there is still one...

I can compare this hotel to the Crowne Plaza Manchester Airport as a similar sort of airport hotel owned by the same hotel group.. I have to say the Crowne Plaza is a better hotel and also cheaper (It was £82.00 park stay go - 8 nights parking) and HI was £110.00 Park stay go - 8 nights. The staff...

Hi Anne C thank you for your very detailed review. It's great you found us a convenient option whilst staying at Edinburgh Airport. Being an Holiday Inn Express, we differ hugely then the 4 star deluxe brand - Crowne Plaza- which is also part of the IHG brand family (ALL hotels are separately owned and operated). A Holiday Inn Express...

So glad that we spent the night here right next to the airport instead of having to drive out from the city to catch our morning flight home. Clean, comfortable, and convenient. We were here in summer 2008.

It's great to have stayed again at this now refurbished hotel. Reception staff were as you come to expect, friendly, welcoming and efficient. Our bedroom echoed what one again has come to expect from this chain, with the exception of lack of luggage rack, no disappointment here either. However, what has become of the Bon Auberge ethos? Instead a rather...

Its good to be back because it is the start of a journey! This hotel features in our itinerary when we fly to and from Edinburgh. The management and staff send out a welcome e mail just to let you know they are looking forward to seeing us. When you arrive the reception staff are very helpful. Car parking, meals...

good location right next to the airport with a shuttle bus - costs £2.50 for the shuttle bus. Although the rate seems high to other local hotels it works out much the same if you go for the rate that includes the car parking and you only have a short distance by bus to the terminal.

Just what you need for overnight stay before flight. Easy 5 min drive in shuttle bus to airport. Good quality breakfast and free car parking for a week! Room was comfy and quiet with free wifi. Would recommend for anyone needing an airport hotel.
