Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 215 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent stay! We had an excellent stay at the hotel. The staff were very accomodating and willing to help and the room was superb! The views over Edinburgh are spectacular and we loved it! Would definately stay here again. October 16, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not so Good I was very disappointed in my stay. On Check in no information was given about the hotel, about breakfast or dinner or even check out. We asked for some details of how to get to the city centre, how long it would take and what was round about to eat ect. reception staff were not informative at all. When getting to the room, first impressions were ok. we didn't expect luxury although we did expect a clean bathroom and shower. Hairs on the walls of the shower, hairs in the sink and mould on the handle and bottom of shower screen. Very offputting!! When checking out no one asked how our stay was. I worked in a Holiday inn a few years back and this particular stay has put me off altogether. October 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great great hotel, friendly staff, clean room and fantastic breakfast October 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good stay After a recent ten day stay, I can attest to the superb restaurant staff and desk staff. All my requests, needs were rapidly met and sometimes anticipated. One of the best Holiday Inn facilities I have stayed in. Would recommend and would return. October 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfectly adequate conference hotel Title of review says it, pretty much. Staff very helpful, comfy room, decent food at lunch and dinner, not quite so good at breakfast. Conference suite kept well supplied with coffee, tea and nibbles. Fairly unpreposessing exterior but better within. Pretty fair situation for access to city centre either by taxi or bus. October 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent stay at Holiday Inn edinburgh west, except for Vegeterian dinner It was a very Good, pleasant and homely stay for me and my wife at Holiday Inn Edinburgh west. However, My wife and me being a pure vegetarian from India the dinner at Hotel restaurant was not much liked by both of us. Rest every thing we liked and we were impressed with. October 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Arrived late and staff could not have been more helpful, both at reception and in the bar/restaurant. They were quite happy to serve us food, although it was getting close to time for last orders, and were happy to make recommendations etc. from the menu. October 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly, efficient and attentive staff Easy to find. Ample parking. Comfortable rooms. Quiet hotel (Monday night stay). Everything you would expect from Holiday Inn ie decor, room size, facilities etc. Not exceptional, just good standard of hotel for business travel. But what makes this hotel is the staff who should be commended. From check in, to room service, bringing iron/board, bar, check out... every single person was friendly, attentive, knowledgable. There is a Holiday Inn near Edinburgh Zoo which is much bigger and has better facilities... but doesn't have the personal touch you get with Edinburgh City West. I stay in a LOT of Holiday Inn's (and other chains) for business purposes and I can't remember ever having a better staff-customer experience. October 3, 2014
