We got a good late deal with Jurys which is v close to the Royal Mile, literally 3 mins walk to the station and has family rooms.

We always stay at the holiday inn next to the zoo. It is corstrophine road. Regular buses straight into the centre. Excellent breakfast. My kids love it. It has a pool, not the largest but again free and the kids think it's great. Spa treatments and a small gym. Nice open bar area. Kids menu and kids eat free as far as I remember, they have their own buffet. There is also a good pub on the same road which does a very reasonable carvery.
Usually a good rate for a family room.

Holiday Inn by the zoo is indeed fantastic. Have stayed there lots.

We often go for the Premier Inn at Newhaven, too - there are nice restaurants in walking distance (Loch Fyne and a pizza place practically next door) and buses into the centre too.

The Premier Inn at Haymarket is modern, good value & a good location, Lothian buses are cheap & easy to use to not tire out DS 5. Definitely book in advance to see Sweetie & Sunshine at the zoo. Museum of Scotland & it's new extension's great for kids.

i have also stayed and thoroughly enjoyed the Holiday Inn on Corstorphine Rd, it is so easy to get into town from there and its great haning a pool for the end of a day in the city.
Love the National Museum on Chambers St, it has lots for the whole family. Museum of Childhood on High St is good.
