Nearby Hotels and Info

city center range site

In 2009, Edinburgh Airport (EDI) was the busiest airport in Scotland and one of the seven busiest airports in the United Kingdom. For those many travelers to Scotland who will be flying into or out of Edinburgh, it is a good idea to have a general idea of the hotel offerings around the airport.

One of the nicer hotels near the airport is the Norton House Hotel and Spa Edinburgh. This luxury hotel is just south of the airport near the Ratho Station and just twenty minutes out of the city center. It was built in 1840 as a country retreat and retains the feel of a Scottish country manor. The hotel is situated on a large parcel of land. It has a full service spa and health club on site, along three different restaurants or lounges. Most visitors to this hotel will probably want to stay for a few nights, and not just for a quick stay prior to a departure from the Edinburgh Airport. Prices at the hotel range from about $150 per night for a classic room to over $525 per night for junior suites.

Two more moderately priced hotels are practically on the grounds of the airport, both less than 1/2 mile away. The Quality Hotel Edinburgh Airport has a number of general amenities, such as a restaurant and bar on site, free wireless internet for guests, and free parking. They also have a shuttle to the airport for a nominal fee. The rates at this hotel are typically between $100 and $225, depending on the type of room and the dates of travel. The other hotel that is quite near to the airport, the Hilton Edinburgh Airport, might be a better option for families with young children. With a playground and swimming pool on site, along with a children’s menu in the hotel restaurant, this hotel has much to offer families. In addition to a restaurant, there is also a casual cafe and bar at the Hilton Edinburgh Airport. Prices at this hotel range from about $100 to $350.

A slightly cheaper hotel option close to Edinburgh Airport is the Travelodge Edinburgh Airport. With rates in the $115 to $150 range, this hotel is located on A8 Glasgow-Edinburgh road, providing easy access to both the airport and the city center. From the hotel, a taxi will cost about £8 or £9 (about $12.50 to $14). There is also a city bus that runs between the hotel and airport for £1.20 each way (less than $2). For those who are looking for a cheap option for an overnight stay prior to a flight from Edinburgh Airport, the Travelodge is a good place to start looking.

Finally, for those who are looking for a hotel a little closer to Edinburgh’s city center but that is still accessible to the airport, the Marriott Edinburgh is a good choice. Located a little further down the A8 Glasgow-Edinburgh road, this hotel is about a 5 minute drive to the airport and a 15 minute drive into the city. It is as affordable as the other hotels, with rates in the $100 to $200 range, and features amenities such as an indoor pool and hot tub and a business center. There is also a restaurant and bar on site at the hotel. Like the Travelodge, city buses and taxis are available for rides to both the airport and the city center.
