    Very good

    location was good as it was just around the corner from the Kitchin restaurant. Breakfast was good.

    we were disturbed by unsupervised children in neighbouring rooms slamming the doors left on the latch

    Superb

    I found the hotel to be in an ideal situation for exploring Edinburgh, due to the excellent bus service from the nearby Ocean Terminal. There was ample parking within the hotel grounds. I had previously used Holiday Inn Express in other locations, so I knew what standard to expect. Many thanks.

    Very good

    Hotel staff were very helpfull.

    The hotel did not have a record of my booking which I had made via the Booked.net website. Due to the hotel being fully booked on that particular night it took some time to sort out but I did eventually get a room.

    We found two bugs on one bed, and the mattress is very dirty. We talked your staff about this and she said that the cleaning service was not available at that time.

    Exceptional

    We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Edinburgh Waterfront for two nights and were extremely impressed with it. The room was spacious and practical. The breakfast made up in generosity what it lacked in variety. The location was great - close enough to the centre of the city but far enough removed to allow free parking and close to the shopping facilities of Ocean Terminal. The staff were fantastic (especially the young lady with dark hair and glasses - a great asset to the hotel as she was so friendly, efficient, considerate and helpful) - all in all, we had a very positive experience.
