Edinburgh stay
Hotel was good overall. We had booked a family room, but had to ask at reception for the extra bedding towels and an extra cup as none had been provided. Also the room was not serviced correctly, bins were not emptied daily, by the end of our 3 day stay we had quite a collection lof plastic bottles.

ROOM TOO SMALL FRO 4
I booked for 4 adults. The room was not built for 4 adults. We ended up having to cancel our 2 night there. We got an additional room at a different hotel in the area for the first night and then checked out of the Holiday Inn Express.
