Edinburgh overnight stay
Brilliant hotel and good location. Check-in was excellent and we could leave the car free of charge in the car park. Brilliant access to the city centre of Edinburgh by bus which took no more than 20 mins. Don’t be deceived by apparences, Leith is an up and coming area with some great bars and eateries close to the hotel. Hotel room was brilliant - clean and everything you needed. Self service buffet breakfast was good!

Good overnight stay and value for money
The Holiday Inn Watefront in Edinburg is located in an interesting place with the mall next to it. Lots of food options nearly. The following is my feedback. PROS: 1. Good location with parking space and lots of options for food. 2. The service was good and front desk was pleasant. 3. It is in an unique location and hence easy to find. 4. The morning breakfast was standard Holiday Inn Menu which is decent. 5. The Wifi was good. CONS: 1. The room was cramped up. The 2nd bed encroached the walking space. hence it became uncomfortable. 2. The A/C unit was not effective. Hence we had to request for an additional room heater. Overall a good option for a short stay specially for business people. It is value for money.
