The Holiday Inn Express near Edinburgh airport is a smart and price-friendly hotel which will ease your travels to and from Edinburgh airport. Barely half a mile from the airport you can’t really get much closer to your flight! Combine that with a 24-hour shuttle service and you really are managing to grease the wheels of your travel arrangements to make them run as smoothly as possible!
The hotel is conveniently situated near good bus and tram links into central Edinburgh and is only two miles from the Royal Bank of Scotland offices making it the ideal hotel to use if you are travelling for business. If you’ve got a few hours to spare before your onward journey whether it be for business or leisure, then you can always pop into the nearby Gyle Shopping Centre with its multiple shops offering a little something for everyone or attempt the largest indoor climbing wall in the world found at the same location!
If you are staying the night before an early flight then you will love the complimentary Continental breakfast which is included with your room – it’ll give you a great start to your travelling day. Alternatively, the great thing about the check-out time being midday is that it gives you that bit of extra time in bed if you have a late-in-the-day flight. If you’ve just flown in to Edinburgh and are staying the last night of your holiday at the Holiday Inn Express, the check-out time will give you that little bit of leeway you may need to get you started the next morning if you’re jet-lagged!
The hotel has an in-house restaurant where the included Express Start Breakfast is served and where lunch and dinner can also be had on the 24-hour menu making it easy for travellers at all times of the day! The hotel’s lovely cocktail lounge is the perfect place to unwind in before grabbing forty-winks and waking refreshed for your flight the next day.
