We spent the night at this near airport hotel and left the car in their secure car park while we went off to Vegas. Very clean hotel and it has comfy beds in nice rooms. Breakfast was good and the staff were very nice.

This is a good airport hotel: clean,comfortable with helpful staff and a good shuttle service. Ideal if you have an early flight. Hot breakfast is served from 6.30 . My only complaint was the poor quality sausages.

Excellent hotel which is much improved since HI took over. Stayed there on a Park and Fly deal which was very convenient. Friendly staff, clean and modern throughout, free wifi and breakfast from 4.30. Food offering was reasonable. Only niggle is the bus service. First, why not include the transfer in the room rate rather than having to buy tickets.... More

Hotel is ideal but make sure you leave plenty time to get to the airport. I parked my car at the hotel and just missed a bus. 20 minute wait and then tour round one of the long stay car parks stopping at every pick up point. Not ideal if you are pressed for time

HIxEdiAirportGM, General Manager at Holiday Inn Express Edinburgh Airport, responded to this review

Hi HesterDundee_Angus thanks for your ideal review. Hotel utilizes a shuttle service for transport to/from hotel. The shuttle costs £2.50 for a return journey and runs on a circuit to/from airport and can take 5-20 minutes to get from hotel to the airport. For guests who leave parking to the last very moment, maybe self parking directly at the Airport... More

We stayed one night as we had an early flight the next morning. The check in was easy and smooth with nice and welcoming staff on the desk. We had stayed here before when it was the Quality Inn. I must say since Holiday Inn has taken over as to what I remember, the rooms are a lot better. The... More

We stayed here before our travel & when we returned. Hotel clean & tidy comfortable rooms, decent breakfast do get you going in the morning. All in all this hotel next to the airport made it effortless before & after travel with safe car parking. All you require we will use again.

We stayed here on the way back from the highlands. It wasn't a bad hotel, but wasn't a good hotel either. If I didn't go and pound a lot of beer in the hotel pub I'd probably be unable to sleep due to the noise factor. It's just a normal corporate hotel, nothing fancy and nothing really outstanding. Very average.

Hi William32789 thank you for your review. I am sorry to read you had a disturbed stay. Being a airport hotel, we do have guests arriving late, and leaving early. I hope you mentioned your disturbed stay prior to leaving. Thanks so much for the comments and hope you had a nice visit while traveling in Scotland. Regards, Jason More

We stayed here after arriving by plane from London, allowing us an overnight stay before continuing into Edinburgh the next morning. The shuttle bus, whilst a little confusing to find, was easy enough to use with a quick loop of the airport carpark before arriving at the hotel. £2.50 for a return trip, payable at reception of the hotel.

Only stayed for 7 hours after arriving on a late flight, reception staff very helpful indeed, rooms comfy and modern, I have to say the sandwiches ordered from reception were delicious by far the best we have eaten in any hotel.

We used this hotel as early flight from Edinburgh next day, upon arrival we found the receptionist to be very unfriendly & rude, she kept using the saying "as I said " when I asked her a question , maybe some customer service training wouldn't go amiss !
