Score from 954 reviews Excellent
We paid £99 for a double room inc breakfast and to my mind that is very good value for money.
The room was for disabled persons and the toilet although functional was no better than that. The shower pressure was insufficient. The t.v. was also functional but even at maximum volume was no very loud.
One receptionist (pregnant lady who also booked us in) always made us feel welcome with a smile e.g. good morning, enjoy your day etc but unfortunately she was the only one - please promote her or give her some kind of award and ask her to train the other staff in customer care
Most of the staff seemed oblivious to us especially when my husband was waiting at the bar - we were going to have a nightcap.The chap came over 3 times and looked past my husband. He was more interested in a chap that was having a nap. You don't ignore all other customers for one that is not bothering anyone. Customer care training needed.
It was an ok place to stay for one night
Our room was next to the lift which was noisy and the customers who used the lift were inconsiderate and noisy
Good position, convenient transport links. Nearby restaurants and bars. Free wifi. Very easy parking. Pleasant rooms, well serviced.
Breakfast room was very busy as hotel was full. Not really a complaint - although breakfast was adequate would have liked slightly more variety in hot food and fresh fruit.
Tried to assist where they could
Noise from vent inside rooms, think from kitchen extractors or heating system, kicking on and off all the time
We enjoyed good value accommodation in a good location . Good restaurants nearby . Free parking. Excellent friendly helpful staff.
All good !
Location was good Bed comfy, tv, room etc fine Coffee at breakfast good Staff on reception were helpful
Not all that clean, breakfast selection not wonderful, not so much as a biscuit or any hot chocolate in the bedroom
Love this holiday inn....great for buses to centre of town and theatre and ocean terminal for shops
Didn't like bar area...hardly any bar seats and right in front of reception....boring TV on as well.....but will still return.
Breakie great, would be nice to have an alternate menu, good to be able to make a cuppa whenever you wish. The staff were fantastic to deal with, they treat everyone with courtesy, happy to answer your questions.
Close to Ocean Terminal shopping centre and also to excellent bus links to the city centre. Free parking on site.
No problems were encountered during our stay.
Used this hotel before on a few occasions and it is very well placed for public transport in to Edinburgh and all the amenities around Leith. We prefer staying here than in the main town. Parking by the hotel is great, checking in simple and efficient and breakfast is pitched just right. Great value for money and when we go to Edinburgh we always try this hotel first for our accommodation.
On this visit we wanted a double bedded room and on the website the only one available was one with disabled access but as it was only for one night we took it. The room although spacious looks very careworn Room 434 with shabby furniture very dull. Not up to the usual standards. Bathroom was fine but the room was not welcoming at all and I would hate to think that is the normal standard of this style of room. Not worth the money we paid but as I say only for one night. The room was also very cold when we first got in and took a fair while to warm up. It won't stop us booking there again as we know this is unusual.
Great location for the Royal Yacht Comfy bed Lovely well motivated, helpful and happy staff particularly on reception
Room slightly cool with automatic air con which could be switched off.
the breakfast was very good.
short of parking space
Getting back on the road?
First room smelled terrible. Wifi was so awful as to be useless. What an insult.
Location, Pleasant staff, Parking.
staff are really great, rooms are nice and clean, beds are very comfy, rooms are of a good size
the breakfast's... in my opinion this always lets the side down at these types of hotels...
Great base for exploring Leith
Problems with heating made it difficult to control room temperature - staff were very helpful in alleviating problem
Helpful staff at reception. Rooms comfortable. Breakfast plentiful . Good location with good public transport access to the city.
Bedrooms to hot at night for me..
Easy to get in and out of town and just across from ocean terminal. Room was clean and shower was hot with some power. Comfy bed with choice of pillows. Secure parking. Ticked all our boxes as we were only there to sleep.
Basic breakfast, my husband would have liked more.
Excellent transport links to city centre.
Nice clean room. Staff very helpful. Bus stop righ outside hotel. Plenty choice at breakfast. 2 minute walk from Ocean Terminal.
The situation, right near the sea. The commodities nearby. The bus line terminal with a direct acces to the airport for only 1.5 pounds. The bus line with a direct acces to city center. The Ocean terminal.
The hotel is far from everything. The center is 20 min away by bus. The airport is 1.5 h away.
Car Parking, Room and excellent breakfast.
closeness to the britainia . excellent parking
wifi do not work in our room , staff called wifi people who wanted me to change settings on my computor . i refused as i have not had to do this before , was then given a new room and upgrade on wifi, worked well then . hotel not worth the 120 pounds it cost ,the most expensive hotel we have found on this trip we got better deals elsewhere and noved on after 1 night to starvilla .
