    Helpful staff, comfortable room, great breakfast and very handy for buses into Edinburgh. We travelled into Edinburgh to go and see the Fringe. 25 mins to Waverley station was a very easy journey and was only £1.60 for an adult and 80p for a child.More

    If you have USB charging cords you will not need any adaptor in Holiday Inn Waterfront, as most, if not all, power outlets have a USB connection as well as the standard plug sockets mentioned in other responses.
