All staff helpful and friendly.
Restricted snack bar menu. Elderly mother not interested in pizza, chilli con carne or tikka masala
Location of hotel excellent, right in the heart of edinburgh. Plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby at the royal mile. Accomodation basic but very clean.
Breakfast was a bit chaotic, too many people trying to choose breakfast within small kitchen area. No bacon included with hot breakfast options, which i found rather odd. Staff could have assisted guests more at this time. Lot of crockery broken during this time, as a result of dissaray.
the location of the hotel, small but hidden, close to Royal mile and surroundings. Friendly staff at reception. Good breakfast.
Noise of the street from room, maybe invest in Double grazing?
The staff was very helpful and courteous. The hotel was close to the sites.
The bed seemed extremely hard. After walking around all day, I wanted to get a good night's sleep. Instead I tossed and turned because of my lower was tight.
Clean, friendly and central
Breakfast buffet layout was daft causing huge bottlenecks around the hot food
Room was clean, spacious, quiet; staff all sounded as if they had been trained to be nice but they had been trained well so no complaints. Excellent value for money.
Breakfast area a wee bit crowded but hardly a problem.
Great location in The Old Town. Attractions, restaurants/pubs and shopping is just a walk away. Nice and helpful staff. Clean rooms and good security. Great offer for families, because children sleeps for free in parent's room.
We would have appreciated a little more healthy breakfast, including vegetables and dark bread.
The staff were uniformly obliging.
Friendly professional staff. Excellent room, facilities, location and staff. Will certainly be visiting again.
Location Room facilities Cleanliness Staff
Coffee: horrible, but the only blot for me.
Great location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay!
For those who want a true experience of Edinburgh the Holiday Inn is ideally located to enjoy the underground activities, the castle, the shops and the nightlife.
Breakfast was limited and no mobile phone reception in room.
Location perfect. Clean and friendly.
Could do with some wall hooks for outside coats. We had lovely weather but there was nowhere to hang coats,jackets etc.(away from our wedding outfits) if they were wet.
Location Reception staff very polite and helpful
Cleaning needed to be better and the room fittings needed to be fixed or/and cleaned. Breakfast room small so it was a bit like a cattle market.
Lovely and helpful staff, free wifi
Room rate relatively high
Although it was a 3star hotel and not very big, the facilities were very good. It was exceptionally clean and a well organised friendly hotel,with NCP nearby It was a short walk to the city centre. Would recommend it.
First impression of the area it felt out on a limb, but it wasn't.
Very helpful staff!
That the receptionist went out of her way to help. Nothing too much trouble.
Having to ge new code for internet every day. Not really a prob but it's all I could think of !
Convenient location. Very helpful and friendly staff. Hotel comfortable and well maintained.
Some difficulty accessing the Wifi.
My friend and I liked the room lay out and how relaxed the breakfast was. Food was excellent, room was clean facilities excellent. Two days of relaxation!
Nothing to write everything was good.
