Business Stay

Hotel is 15 min (~7 GBP) by cab from airport; great for travel. A bit far from central Edinburgh (i.e., Royal Mile, castle) for site seeing by foot. Hotel is well equipped for business traveller; great Scottish breakfast buffet. One night stay that had a water interruption, but staff made sure bottle water available until water authority fixed problem (2 hrs, still had time to shower before leaving).

Green Foodie in Edinburgh

I chose this hotel becuase of the large greenspace across the street with trail running it, which turned out to be tremendous for morning runs. Beyond that the motels was immaculate, the bed comformtable, and the meals....they were amazing! I have never had A+ hotel food like this (and it was reasonably priced to boot). My friends also told me that the Beattle stayed here once when it was called Fox something. All in all, I will stay here again. Only down side for some, is it's distance from the city center -- if something else calls you to Edinburgh, that shouldn't be a problem.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Hotel restaurants are usually mediocre. This hotel had amazing food. I would look twice at the wine list though, as the glass poors left something to be desired.

Ideal if you have an early flight

A much better value than other hotels near the airport. VERY clean and comfortable, nice bar. Food is reasonably priced, although the lamb could be better prepared. Stick with the beef or order the porkchop.
