Very comfortable hotel and great location for exploring Leith and Edinburgh. Staff were very helpful with recommendations for eating places, lots of choice - found a great pub.which used only local produce - fantastic. Free parking (a bonus these days) and express check out. Visited Britannia which was amazing. Only had one night here but this would also be a great base for visiting Edinburgh city centre.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scotscalder All that I ask is for you to give us a few choices of whisky all else good
We stay here often and like it very much, great for parking and good bus service close by, good staff
The one downside with all Holiday Inn Express's that we have stayed in recently is no choice of blended whisky available in the bars, only one blend Bells which is absalutly dreadfull whisky, what a let down for all your travellers from all over the world, good job there is other bars nearby that stock good whisky blends like grouse, whyte and Mackay and loads of others. You do have a few Malt Whisky but that is not what I drink. I do hope you can change this and have some good whisky for sale on our next stay and improve your otherwise good image

The main room was very clean. The hotel has great parking and main transport links run outside the hotel into the center. The breakfast provide was very enjoyable with lots of options to choose from. I would defiantly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Edinburgh, especially those travelling by car.

This hotel is a bit concerning. The request for my passport information and I believe there is no data protection. You are already presenting to UK/England upon arrival into the country -

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by iloveschottland Guter Startpunkt für Edinburgh
Gute Lage etwas außerhalb der City. Direkte Busanbindung ans Zentrum. Sauber und ordentlich. Etwas viel Trubel beim Frühstück, wenn man die Zeit erwischt an den alle starten. Internetnutzung konnte nicht überprüft werden, da die Seite nach der Registrierung immer wieder den Browser geschlossen hat. Nach 10 Versuchen aufgegeben. Geht in anderen Hotels unkomplizierter.

The Manager, Charlene, immediately sorted out a small hiccup with the room we were originally allocated and, without being asked, explained that we would not have to pay the full price. This has definitely encouraged us to use this hotel again.

The hotel was good with no problems.
My only complaint was the standard of the breakfast, but it was as expected hence not a real complaint.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Narelley59 Comfortable room, onsite parking and public transport
Our room was very comfortable and recently renovated. The room had a window allowing for fresh air rather than needing air-conditioning. The location suited us as we did not want to drive into Edinburgh city. There was onsite parking and a very good local bus service right outside the hotel gate.
Although the staff were not discourteous they were not overly welcoming or forthcoming with any advice to first time visitors to Edinburgh. We figured that the majority of guests may have been staying on business rather than leisure thus the generally cool reception.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NeilCC Pleasant stay
Overall a generally pleasant last minute 2 night stay stay, spoilt only by a faulty air conditioning unit which insisted on shutting down whenever it felt like it causing us to have two hot nights with the window open which of course increased the noise levels despite an attempt having been made to fix it. The foreign tour parties getting up on our floor from 5.00am knocking on each others doors and talking loudly, letting their doors slam shut and children crying, did disturb me the first night but not at all the second night and in view of this I would recommend the fitting of quiet closing doors if short stay tour parties is to be the norm for this hotel. Otherwise a great hotel in a good location with excellent staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MickeyD1973 Great Location
This was our first visit to Scotland and we just doing a few days in this location. The young girl that check us in was very helpful in getting us a tour ticket and explaining where the buses where and how to get around. We had a rental car but with the city center as busy as it is the public transport worked out far better. Our only issue was just the breakfast.. not a well cooked egg. I know all hotels seem to use the powdered eggs but these were runny every morning. Other than that, it was fine.

Friendly and helpful staff. The room was very clean and well equipped although there could have been a better selection of shower gel and shampoo in the bathroom. The towels were of very good quality which was a nice surprise. The Breakfast was very good with many different choices and well stocked considering the high number of quests.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Almost got it right
We were met by a very friendly welcome at reception, whcih pretty much mirrored the whole experience. The room was comfortable, with great air conditioning, essential due to the perfect weather. The only two areas for improvement are; the pretty poor offering at breakfast time (I can't class just a croissant and a slice of a single type of cheese as continental), and the bar closes during the afternoon, a time when the hot weather would have been comlimented by a glass or two of wine. #At least the local strore only five minutes walk away was able to sell me a reasonable bottle of prosecco) Overall then, a place to be recommended when visiting Edinburgh. It is away from the bustle of the city, but easily accessible by bus, which stops just outside the hotel.

This hotel is the best hotel i have ever been to. The room was very clean and so was the bathroom. The beds were so comfortable that i had the best sleep. The staff were very polite and helpful. It made me feel like i was the queen in this hotel.
This was the 5th time i had been to this hotel, it makes me feel relaxed. I would always go to this particular hotel, and have reccomended it to other people.
If you want to go somewhere to relax choose HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS WATERFRONT Thank you for helping me to enjoy my holiday.

Stayed here overnight before an early interview the next morning. Well located near Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre and the Scottish Government buildings as well as The Royal Yacht Britannia. The room was clean, comfortable and had everything I needed. Staff were professional and efficient. Breakfast next day was adequate for my needs. There was parking in the hotel grounds.
