Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cavam3 Great value overnight family break
Great facilities for all the family. Food very good. Service a bit slow at dinner and breakfast although good when attended to, otherwise would have scored excellent for service. Rooms comfortable big enough for 3. Will definitely return

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sparkey67 Excellent service and perfect location
A lovely warm welcome, water for us and some sweets for the kids my only negative would be that the in room refreshments had nothing suitable for children.... a couple of hot chocolate sachets would have made a world of difference after a long journey in freezing temperatures. Lovely leisure facilities with high levels of cleanliness.
We would definitely stay again, perfect for Murrayfield and the Zoo.

Stayed in this hotel unknowingly when the England v Scotland rugby match was on so it was very busy to say the least! We arrived early at about 9:45, despite the check in being 2pm, our room was ready & we were able to leave our bags & go and explore. We used the pool, jacuzzi & sauna on the Sunday morning and all were very nice & clean, included in the price. Overall a very nice hotel, would stay again!

All staff very helpful, especially the restaurant staff during dinner.
Was given a room upgrade, but the bedroom and bathroom were smaller in size than expected. The furnishings were modern and the beds comfortable. All in all a very enjoyable stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cw1431 Good stay but Sunday morning breakfast nightmare
Having just returned from this hotel everything went well until the Sunday morning breakfast. I still don't understand why an IHG rewards member does not receive free wifi when available in the hotel - especially after recently visiting another Holiday Inn which had this service but heyho.
My main gripe was Sunday morning where to be honest it was like school dinners - rush to make sure you have enough cutlery on your table, stand in the 30 minute breakfast queue and then, assuming you have not lost the will to live, try and get some toast - forget fruit juice - no glasses and those that did appear were roasting!!!!
I appreciate the hotel was busy, we were reminded this by the front of house at breakfast and the fact that everyone came at once, but to be honest that is not my concern and more over I do not pay to be reminded.
I have stayed at the hotel before and it was far more relaxing experience so I was disappointed. As usual the vast majority of staff and facilities were great but unfortunately these often do not stick in your mind.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mebob Free wi fi
according to your web site wi fi was free for I H G members, but when I asked reception they informed me it was only free for platinum and silver guests very disapointing

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lecheminant Poor accommodation for the price
In the room there was an acute lack of hot or even warm water, the shower went to cold after a very short time and then packed in all together.this was reported to reception and me
Motioned again on departure,really unsatisfactory.

Very enjoyable stay at another Holiday Inn, better public areas than some others, but I fail to see why one has to pay for internet access when Holiday Inn Express has it free. Its not a lot of money, but it annoys

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Graham 1 Christmas in Edinburgh.
Stayed for 5 nights over the Christmas period,on a bed and breakfast basis.Hotel was clean and comfortable and staff helpful,especially breakfast waiting staff.A bit out of the town but there are plenty of buses that stop right outside the hotel and some attractions are nearby,the zoo is next door and Murrayfield rugby ground is about 10 minutes walk.Can recommend Royal Yacht Brittania to visit which is at Ocean Terminal an out of town shopping centre.
For price paid,hotel is very good value,however if you need WiFi it is extra throughout the hotel where some places we have stayed it is free in the lobby area or in general throughout the hotel,we just used the internet when we out in pubs and coffee shops where it is free,but, if you rely on internet it is an extra cost to bear in mind when staying here.

Came for my 50th birthday and New Years Eve celebrations. Staff very friendly and kind. Pool facilities excellent, very clean. Breakfast suited the whole family, good variety. Location of hotel fantastic, only 3 miles from Edinburgh Castle. Frequent bus service right outside hotel.Therefore, used bus service. Would recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by APCH11 Hogmanay stay
This was a last minute booking for new year so was more expensive than we hoped but none the less it was a very good stay. The hotel had great facilities and friendly staff, we even got a free upgrade to a front facing room with an amazing view. To make it better breakfast was a brunch which was served until 2pm on the 1st Jan, which allowed an extra long lie (which we all need after a nights partying), check out at 12 and then get something to eat. The hotel decor was modern and the hotel throughout was very clean. I would defiantly recommend this hotel and I will hopefully be back for another lovely stay.

We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Corstophine very much. a very comfortable and clean hotel. bed was so nice we didn't want to leave! Even though this is a large hotel and was fully booked when we stayed in between Christmas and New Year it was very quiet and had 3 wonderful nights' sleep. Nice to get woken up by the monkeys in the zoo next door!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Family of six Great stay
Six of us stayed at this hotel and would certainly recommend it if you are thinking of staying in Edinburgh. Bus stop right outside the hotel takes you into the centre. Hotel itself was clean, tidy had good leisure facilities and the food, both breakfasts and dinners were great. Plently of open seating in a nice lounge area where we played familiy board games. The staff were all friendly and helpful.

The bath fills, boiling hot in less than 2 minutes any time of the day. Rooms are nice and comfortable, very spacious with huge beds. We could see the zoo from the room and the car parking as well.
Busses run from the hotel to the city center 24 hours a day also.
We will be staying here again :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kev72 Birthday Treat
This was a birthday treat for the wife. as she really wanted to see the pandas at Edinburgh Zoo. Obviously the hotel is an excellent location for that. The staff in the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful, and I was very impressed by them. The room itself was good and spacious, though I'm not a fan of two beds pushed together to make a "king" bed. Also the bathroom was a bit tired in comparison. I think that's mainly due to the use of a shower head above a traditional style bath - I would rather just have a shower cubicle. The value of the stay was very good, especially if you book the rooms separately from one of the "special offers" for the zoo (which are much more expensive).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Shaun46 Christmas Dinner Carvery Awful
Hotel in good location with good bus links into city. Picked this one because of pool...only problem was it was closed on christmas day :(
Booked for christmas dinner in the evening but oh what a mistake...food had been left out since lunch and was very very dry, so much so none of us ate any. Children ate free pity christmas dinner was not included and they ended up with chilli con carne.
To make matters worse we where sat next to the food bins so we noticed how much other food was being thrown away. I complained to the duty manager who didn't give much of an explanation but just said he offer a reduction. Checked out and got £10 off !!!! woopiee !!! at this point I couldn't be bothered arguing as I had a 4 hour drive ahead of me...all in all rubbish probably not go holiday inn again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ervin Autumnfest Premium quality budget hotel
Our 2nd stay at what we consider to be the Edinburgh Zoo hotel. We stayed over Christmas and was worried a budget hotel might be a depressing place to be but far from it. Paid for an executive room this time, same car park view as our last stay in a standard room but comfy sofa and executive chair and Edinburgh's best shortbread but only on the 1st day and Cadbury Chocolate bars too. The usual extensive restaurant menu was not available over Christmas but the team especially Hassan and Sarah on reception and Sarah on reservations made sure we were completely satisfied. Minor maintenance issues were resolved as promised. Christmas Lunch was good but shame that there were no parsnips and we were hoping Father Christmas would play a bigger part, he was watching Sky TV most of the time! Overall a most satisfactory stay and we will always use the hotel whenever we want to visit Tian Tian and Yang Guang the Edinburgh zoo pandas.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Avonte1 Convenient Location at the edge of the city
Convenient location at the edge of the city, both close to the airport and town city centre. City was a short bus ride away and an even shorter taxi ride. Value for money too. Would recommend this hotel for anyone stopping over at Edinburgh for a night or 2.

Thank you for a good stay, we will visit again. The staff were very helpful and it was very kind of you to ring in advance to warn our party that hotel was very busy with Christmas parties so the restaurant would be very busy as well. Thank you
