Absolutely terrible! I booked through expedia, with a rate that included king size bed room and breakfast for 2. On that same website, it said that the pool facilities were available. My partner and I wanted to stay in Edinburgh for a night and we wanted to stay somewhere with an indoor pool. After booked, we arrived at the Inn to find out that the pool was closed. In addition, they wanted to charge us for breakfast, even though it was already included in our rate. We explained that to the receptionist, when we checked in, and she couldn’t care less, saying “this is the information I’ve got”. After proving through the reservation e-mail, she pretended she had changed something on computer. But guess what? We still got charged for breakfast! Speaking of which: that breakfast there is £15.00. For a couple of dry sausages, bacon and badly cooked scrambled eggs? Are you serious? Not worth the price. About the room: stayed in room 218. Furniture was very tired, footers and bathroom door were damaged, annoying noises from the wall didn’t cease throughout the night (couldn’t fall asleep because of those) and the stained kettle of the room had water in from previous guest. Is this Inn rated with 4 stars? I would not give more than two. Paying to expect one thing and get something else got me quite mad. Will never return for sure.

Good location, spacious, friendly staff. Some fittings a little dated and ceilings and walls can be a bit tired but didn’t affect the stay.

The staff at the hotel are superb. Very welcoming and friendly, and a credit to the hotel. The hotel rooms are a little dated but very clean and comfortable. The hotel is right next to the Zoo and every so often we heard the animals call out in the middle of the night - not bothersome, but fun! Unfortunately the pool was not open which was a shame as we had booked the hotel specifically for this. We would be happy to return.

Second time at the Holiday Inn Edinburgh and pleased to say it won't be the last. Clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. Only 10 minutes from Edinburgh city center via bus it is excellently located. I have to say the only grumble I had was some of the the facilities were not available but purely down to COVID government legislation but no fault of the hotel. If you are planning staying over the current restrictions you will feel safe, secure as it's impeccably clean and the way the hotel are dealing with it all is most impressive. Breakfast service and quality worth a particular mention. To management and staff, thankyou for making our stay comfortable and we shall certainly be back
