It was an early start on the 30th. We had to be at the departure point in Kings Cross by 6am so we were on the first tube of the morning. Our 10 hour bus ride began at 7! It was good to catch up with Laura and Hamish about their recent skifest week. The journey actually wasn't too bad, I managed to sleep a lot of the way. We had a couple of stops for food and 'speed dating' in which we met others on the top deck tour took up quite a bit of time too. Our ...
... where Dolly the sheep is or has information on because she is the first cloned thing or something haha I can't remember already. The Castle on top of the hill looks amazing, the wall is pretty much in with the rock that it is on top of. I wish I could have gone inside it and had a look but they said that you need to give yourself at least 2 to 3 hours and I just didn't have that much time but that's okay but it will give me something to come back here to see one day. Also I ...
... from Christ Church Cathedral, Ottawa singing. They were fantastic, and even better was the wonderful surprise to see Michael Carty singing with them. I've known Michael since he was a baby and have followed his musical career with great interest. He had a couple of solo parts and sang The Bonnie Banks of Lock Lomand as a solo. You could have heard a pin drop in the Cathedral and even the disrespectful tourists who "whisper" ...
... earlier in the week. It focuses on locally-sourced ingredients and is only open for breakfast and lunch. I got the deli plate, which came with amazing smoked ham, roasted chicken, slabs of two types of cheese, salad, and the cafe's delicious homemade multigrain bread. Nikki got a fish plate, Grandma got a salad sampler, and Mom and Dad got sandwiches. Everyone loved it.
We spent the afternoon doing ...
... Highland Cows - all of whom Chelle fell hopelessly in love with. We stopped on way to Alyth to take these snaps (and many, many, many others!). And I fell in love with the country side and everything about it!
We had promised to visit it and take some photos for him. Stopping there for lunch, we entered an establishment which smelt like coffee shops used ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Hotel Edinburgh Airport
We had a 6 am flight from Edinburgh to Gatwick and had to stay at an airport hotel. There are 2 only... The Hilton and the Quality Hotel...
Booked online through airports own website and got a great rate for overnight stay with breakfast and 15 days parking included in the price. We had an extra 6 days added at a minimal cost of £3GBP per day - bargain.
Stayed at this hotel for two nights with my boyfriend. Got a rate of £80.25 each for two nights bed, breakfast and evening meal. On the down side shower in our room was not working, room was small and dark. We were told our rate allowed us to spend £18.50 each for dinner, and a set menu was in place. The food was lovely, however the fixed menu apparently runs for six months at a time leaving you with no choice, so we choose from the a la carte menu and paid the extra. Our steaks were £18.50 with everything. The staff are very friendly, and when I complained about the shower the first evening, I was told it would be looked at. On the second morning, I asked again and was moved to a most beautiful room, which really pleased us. It made all the difference to our stay. The hotel only serve breakfast until 9.30pm, it would have been nice if 10am was available, as a lie in was out of the question. Overall I would stay here again. the courtesy bus runs very 20 mins, and was most efficent. To go into the town centre, we got the courtesy bus to the airport, then bus 100 into town, which cost £5 each return.
We stayed overnight at the Quality Hotel prior to flying to Switzerland next day.
We stayed at the Quality Hotel in Edinburgh simply because it is less than a mile from the Edinburgh Airport and we had a very early morning flight out. The room was dated but clean. The shower was "dodgy" as reported by other reviewers-way too hot/then way too cold without any adjustment to the controls. Apparently this facility is undergoing renovations/rehabbing soon-there were displays of new carpeting/paint chips/line drawings of the "new rooms" in the lobby. Did not get a chance to utilize the restaurant on the premises. Staff did fulfill our request for additional towels in the bath within 1 hour. Hotel did have shuttle to airport on time and ready when we needed it. Would recommend to early morning travelers. I am not sure I would stay there on an extended stay in Edinburgh. Since it is close to the airport you are at least 6-8 miles from the city center, Princes Street, or the Royal Mile. If you are traveling on a budget and don't want to spend Marriot or Hilton prices to be close to the airport, then this hotel will do.
OK, this is a good value hotel, but why do they permit smoking in every public area? This is one of the worst hotels I have ever been to for ignoring non-smoking customers.
My company has this hotel on it's list of prefered hotels and I am requesting that it is removed until the smoking issue is resolved.
Great hospitality at Edinburgh Airport
Well I am amazed at the reviews I've already read. What a mixed bag! I have visited and stayed at the hotel many times. Erratic - no. Variable service - no. Welcoming - yes. Hospitality - superb. Value for money - best anywhere near the airport. A hard act to follow - in a difficult market oft characterised by tired, impatient, anxious travellers.
And a good out of city base for exploring the best of Edinburgh - with good trnsport links to avoid the ardour of driving in Edinburgh traffic.
I highly recommend the hotel. Enough said!
Unreliable courtesy bus
The hotel is proud of its free courtesy bus shuttle to the airport - we waited four times up to half an hour until the shuttle arrived. That was especially annoying on the day of departure when nobody could find the driver and we had to catch the train.
Employees are not really friendly, rather uncommitted - average hotel staff.
The rooms are ok, although the shower is a bit dodgy.
Very convenient for the airport
My husband and I have stayed at the Quality Hotel Edinburgh Airport twice, because it is so convenient for the airport, reasonably priced and has a complimentary airport shuttle. The rooms are fairly standard chain-hotel rooms, but they're clean and well furnished. Breakfast in the restaurant is expensive, though, so if it isn't included in your room rate, you might want to go elsewhere for food.
We stayed on a special dinner/bed and breakfast rate advertised in the national newspaper. What a fabulous value!Lovely restaurant staff and lovely food.Dinner was great.The waitress very helpful and friendly.One or two of the reception desk staff a bit dour but ok. Rooms at the front of the hotel overlook the runway but we encountered no noise.Room well decorated and comfortable and the bathroom was spotless and great.
Good courtesy bus service to/from the terminal and would recommend the hotel to anyone wishing a nice place to stay before(or after)flying.
