Historical Traveller Reviews of Quality Hotel Edinburgh Airport
Excellent, can not fault themfrom incongru
I would say that the location of this hotel makes it ideal for tourists also. You can be in the city centre in minutes , using an airport shuttle.
Remember to store the hotel phone number in your mobile ( cellphone) then when you return, you can be picked up by the smart and efficient hotel shuttle bus. Before you retrieve your car, ask the driver for the PIN number for the barrier or you will be unable to leave the car park. Security is good.
I stay in hotels a lot and I can honestly say that this is one of the best airport hotels in Scotland. The bar prices are shockingly extortionate, but oh well, that's the UK for you. We ate in the bar and the food was very good indeed. I looked into the restaurant and it looked very swanky and upmarket.
I also noticed quite a few single ladies, i.e., business travellers, staying there. This friendly , safe hotel is ideal for the single lady travelling alone.
The only negative thing I can think of, is that they allow cigarette smoking right outside the front door. We were eating our bar meal and every time the front door opened ( the ground floor is open plan) we were treated to a whiff of tobacco smoke. Similarly, our room was directly above the front door and there was a bit of noise during the night, presumably also from the cigarette smoking brigade. But this is true of every hotel in Scotland, and it did not really detract from what was a very pleasurable stay indeed.
Convenient to airport - good choice for early flight outfrom Lyte
– Hard to define easy to recognise – Your Call.from cricklewood
Location – The hotel s a few minutes drive from the airport right by the boundary fence – located next to factory units and in front of a car auction & to be fair if you are using the hotel closeness to the airport must be playing a part in your decision rather than the ambience of location – otherwise you would pay £5 on the bus & select a city centre location.
The building – Those of you from the UK may recall a long running TV serial called crossroads – the Quality Hotel resembles that minus the swimming pool. In short a 1980’s / 90’s modular functional building.
Reception & Public areas – Pleasant reception with bar & restaurant leading off – the lounge is nice with a high-pitched tent like roof. A large Plasma TV is constantly on with no sound – a bit superfluous. Internet access (I think you had to pay) on the side in the lounge, free Metro newspapers.
The Bedrooms – For my £130+ for a single what did I get – not a lot. The rooms lead off the pubic area with ground & first floor availability. Corridors in need of decoration. The room was very clean – however no matter how clean it did not mask the fact that my room was in dire need of some live cycle decoration – the walls were marked, skirting boards needed painting, the net curtain ( remember them) had holes in , the old small TV was placed above the dressing table so one had to sit on the edge of bed to watch. One, yes one, tiny sheet of notepaper & a pencil , no trouser press , no comfy chair, kettle not emptied from previous guest. Room was very small – but I say again it was clean & the bed was OK for its age. But I would say I did expect better for the price. There are only two hotels at the airport ( the other is a Hilton) so they do have a take it or leave it hold over you.
The bathroom – Again very clean – but the shower water pipe was rusted, the loo seat was broken on one side & the extractor fan very noisy. No shower cubical door just a curtain . I did feel sorry for house keeping who clearly tried their best against a backdrop of little or no investment.
Oh in the bathroom look out for a large sheet of glossy paper saying ‘ Don’t drink the water – drink some wine’ – this as a rather odd voucher to exchange in the dining room for a glass of house wine. Classy or what?
Food –. ate in restaurant for dinner & breakfast. I have say the food was fine, service good & whilst the free house wine of questionable quality the thought was there.
Staff – All very friendly – really good customer care – I would say they deserved better from the operator who has an excellent team in a very tired hotel. .
Over all – for one night it is fine – for two nights go into town you can do much better.
Tip – Ask for a room at the back & look out for the free wine voucher in the bathroom .
Great experience!!from BabsBuenosAires
My entire stay, short but very enjoyable, was great. I had the change to enjoy a really nice meal, and although I'm a bit picky, they offered me alternatives to the menu. I will definitely stay again in this hotel, absolutely worth every penny!!
I hope you enjoy it too!!

Great airport overnighterfrom travellerStirling
Obviously I was not in the best of moods when I arrived at the hotel but the dark clouds soon lifted when I got to the reception desk. The airline had booked a room and had told the hotel the problem with the flight.
The receptionist was sympathetic and friendly. The room was on the 1st floor and was quiet despite having a great view of the airport runway.
I had expected a cheap budget hotel as the airline was paying but the dinner in the hotel restaurant far exceeded my expectations by offering a selection of traditional scottish and southern european meals. I had a great fillet steak with all the trimmings.
The location of the hotel means there is not a lot of local amenities so I went to the bar after dinner, again the the barmaid was friendly and attentive.
After a good nights sleep in a comfortable clean bedroom, I had a full cooked breakfast.
Though I didn't pay for this hotel, the advertised rates were not much more than a dull budget hotel. Would definitely stay here again.
First Classfrom WindsockAnteater
The room was absolutely spotless and exceeded my expectations.
The food was lovely and the wine selection was outstanding.
The continental breakfast was very good, if, like me, you have to depart early. I didn't consider this hotel value for money and would choose elsewhere in future.
Great Valuefrom Dieman
Good accomodation at a good pricefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The fire alarm system works (which is good to know) - we had a false alarm at 1.30am which had all the guests out on the pavement for 15 minutes. Probably not the hotels fault - probably someone lighting up in a non smoking room or the like.

Best Pizza anywhere! Try out Samsuns in Tollcross for the greatest Pizza on earth! I kid you not.
airport proximity This hotel is ideal for business and pleasure users because of its proximity to the airport. It also has its own courtesy bus 24 hours a day.
It really rains!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Always carry an umbrella, you never know when the rain is going to surprise you.
