Standard Room - Very Variable

Posted 21-Jul-2014
Pros: Location
Cons: They clearly have at least 2 levels of quality of standard rooms - be honest drop the price of the room with a window that is 7 feet from the ground
Location: Everything in Edinburgh
The location was superb. This was booked 5 months in advance - arrived at 10.00; left our bags but checked in at 17.00 - only room left was not big enough to swing a haggis, They could not move us.

Short Break At The George Hotel.

Posted 18-Jul-2014
Pros: Cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff.
Location: For me, it was an ideal location, with everything I needed close at hand.
Spent three nights at the George Hotel, for my first visit to Edinburgh.The hotel, public areas and my room were all very good indeed. From reception, waitresses, bar staff etc. all were polite, friendly and very helpful. If I am fortunate enough to return to Edinburgh, I will certainly use the George again.

Great setting, slightly let down.

Posted 15-Jul-2014
The hotel is fairly grand and well located. The staff were mostly polite, friendly and helpful; although one or two forgot about service with a smile. Our room was clean and well presented. Although, our deluxe double bed was two singles pushed together; they kept moving apart which was very irritating. Overall the food was good, but the coffee with breakfast was not of great quality. Generally it was pleasant but slightly let down by a couple of minor things.

Great hotel, great location!

Posted 04-Jul-2014
Cons: Noisy at night (nightclubs across the st) and church bells ring throughout the day (sometimes every 15 minutes) if your room is front facing.
Awesome stay here, hotel is spacious and clean in a great location (George Street, City Centre). As it is on one of the main streets, it was a little noisy at night. Hotel staff was excellent and very accommodating. Hotel is close enough to walk to all main attractions and access transport, but far enough to not have to listen to bagpipes 24/7 outside your window, as is the case with most hotels on Princes Street. Would definitely stay here again!

Superb location, mostly cordial attentive staff

Posted 22-Jun-2014
Pros: Location, friendly and attentive staff, cleanliness
Cons: Reliable Internet connection; website notice that Internet is free for only one hour every 4 hours; earlier breakfast access when needed
We spent five nights at this hotel and had a very good experience overall. The two exceptions were the maƮtre d' at breakfast, who refused to give me access to coffee or any food whatsoever 10 minutes before the official start of breakfast service in spite of my having to leave for a meeting, and unsatisfactory access to the Internet, which the staff was unable to correct in spite of their strong efforts. The hotel is beautifully located, comfortable, and has an excellent breakfast.

George Hotel Edinburgh

Posted 20-Jun-2014
Pros: good position shame about the service
Cons: As above.
Location: Good central location - most sites within walking distance
Room not ready at check in time -front desk disinterested. Ignored in the bar - eventually managed to order a pot of tea in the bar which took a long time to arrive and was undrinkable when it did. The window in our room was nailed shut making it uncomfortable on a hot and stuffy night. television did not work although this was fixed. Had to queue for breakfast despite going at the time recommended on the information in the room. Breakfast bar not replenished. Strong impression is that this hotel is geared for tour groups / business travelers - and individual guests are ignored. The one exception was the concierge who was helpful.

No title.

Posted 17-Jun-2014
Pros: Good location and pleasant atmosphere.
Cons: As remarked above.
A very pleasant stay. My only complaint would be that the otherwise very comfortable bedroom most definitely needed a chest of drawers, there being little in the way of drawer space for clothes.

Nice hotel

Posted 20-May-2014
Pros: Staff and building.
Cons: Breakfast. Fruit juices tasted cheap and chemical. More comfortable mattresses.
Location: Right in the heart of Edinburgh so at near to everything - castle, royal mile, Holyrood. Short bus ride to the zoo.
The George is a lovely hotel in the heart of Edinburgh. The room was nice if a long walk up & then down various staircases to the other side. The bed was a bit hard for a superior room - expected a newer mattress but we were only there for one night. Nice bathroom with good toiletries. Breakfast was ok but for a top hotel the ingredients tasted a bit cheap especially the fruit juices which were awful. However there was a huge choice and the room it was in was beautiful. I would stay here again if I could get a good deal.
