Nice central hotel. Very comfortable.

Posted 25-Jun-2015
Pros: Room & staff very good.
Cons: Lift very slow. Water pressure poor for shower and toilet ( room 551). Sound proofing not brilliant between rooms.
Location: Super location near to shops and restaurants.
Bar facilities poor due to refurbishment. The bar on the fifth floor could have been open longer...,closed at 10pm.

Disappointed - hotel under refurb.

Posted 25-Jun-2015
The bar was boarded off and a replacement bar/drinks shelf available in the foyer. Albeit an roof bar was available if the lifts would ever turn up. The twin rooms were quite small. Overall I was disappointed.

nice hotel close to city center.

Posted 24-Jun-2015
Pros: location.
Breakfast overpriced, standard fare unnecessarily expensive. Frankly, for what we paid, they might consider providing all guests with free breakfast.

Enjoyed George Hotel

Posted 15-Jun-2015
My Air France flight from Paris was late so I missed staying in the George hotel one whole night which I had to pay for because it was already booked . In spite of Air France problem I thoroughly enjoyed staying in the George hotel where it is very centrally located in the breakfast was wonderful and the staff was so very helpful .

Very comfortable, central.

Posted 13-Jun-2015
Pros: The staff were great and the room was very comfortable.
Cons: It was just right
Location: Sedate hotel in the heart of the city, lots to do and see just outside,
Booked well in advance and got stranded at Edinburgh airport in the middle of the night with a hundred others from my flight, no bus no taxis, nothing, I phoned The George and was picked up within 5 mins, very special treatment from the night staff led by Gordon and very quickly settled into a very comfortable room. Great nights sleep,great breakfast, really helpful staff, a short walk from every where. Loved our stay there.

Lovely hotel in the centre

Posted 06-Jun-2015
Pros: Middle of the city close to all the amenities
Cons: Information about refurbishment prior to our booking
Location: Too many to mention, but highlight has to be the castle with fabulous views
Lovely hotel staff very friendly, disappointed in the fact that they were refurbishing the restaurant but we were not told until we got there. Also the panoramic bar was closed after the first night again we were not informed until we tried to have a drink, there was a small bar downstairs that closed at 10pm.

Edinburough mini break

Posted 01-Jun-2015
George hotel is in a great location. Popular wedding venue. Hotel was having bar and restaurant refurbished but gave out drink voucher for lobby bar and coupon to restaurants nearby. We are at The Grillhouse.on Rose street - 5 min walk. And a tapas restaurant literally round corner. Great site seeing and lovely weekend. Could have better toiletreies and bathrobes at this pricepoint. Also had to request a sewing kit.

Alter Prachtbau mit gutem Service

Posted 01-Jun-2015
Pros: Sehr bemühte Concierges, die bei der Lösung aller Fragen großen Einsatz zeigten.
Cons: In einem Hotel mit diesem Anspruch wäre natürlich ein Schwimmbad schön. Das gibt die Innenstadtlage vermutlich nicht her.
Location: Top-Adresse in Edinburgh. Viele gute Restaurants, Bars, Geschäfte und Touristenattraktionen in der Nachbarschaft
Das George ist ein alter Prachtbau in der Renommierstraße Edinburghs. Die meisten Hotelzimmer liegen in einem modernen Anbau, der von vorne nicht zu sehen ist. Die Superior-Zimmer sind groß genug und in einem guten Renovierungszustand. Die Gänge dorthin wirken zum Teil eng und niedrig. Unsere Zimmer gingen zur rückwärtig gelegenen Straße und waren ruhig und hell. Im Mai 2015 waren gerade einige Renovierungsmaßnahmen in Gange. Das Restaurant war geschlossen. Unter dem Dach war eine provisorische Panorama-Bar mit Dachterrasse eingerichtet. Das Frühstück fand im sehr eindrucksvollen Kuppelsaal im vorderen, alten Hotelteil statt, der ansonsten allabendlich für Hochzeiten und andere Feste genutzt wird.
