My Recommendation

As with most airport hotels it is difficult to quantify value for money, as by nature they have a captive audience who is willing to pay more for the convenience and location. However, if you are looking for a hotel very close to the airport then the Hilton Edinburgh Airport hotel could be a very good choice for the sheer convenience, as long as you are pre-warned that extras such as food and drink do not come cheap.
