Well positioned for everything.

Posted 10-Apr-2015
Cons: The bed was too soft and caused back pain during the day. Choose to try sleeping on top of quilt to try and get more support, only this can be cold.
In an excellent location, just a short walk to the main thoroughfare of Edinburgh.Numerous restaurants, and coffee shops in George Street and surrounding roads: Difficult to make a choice, and should I return would like to try some of the restaurants in the road behind George Street. The room was clean and tidy, but I struggled to sleep well as I found the bed far to soft. My overall view is that it was an excellent hotel, in a prime location, and the staff worked hard to ensure that a high standard was maintained.

Super location only surpassed by the helpful staff

Posted 01-Apr-2015
Pros: Location very central for shopping and restaurants
The staff were superb - from the room service, restaurant staff to the reception staff. Best I'd ever encountered. Each one was prepared to go the extra mile.

Perfect location

Excellent location for Royal mile and new town. Good restaurant and bar but beware short measures for cocktails in bar - too much ice. Breakfast was fantastic , room very clean, warm and bed was comfortable.

Great location.

Posted 16-Mar-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: A bit crammed in the room. More stock of tea, coffee and milk would have been nice rather than having to keep going to reception to get this.
Location: Location is great near centre of town with lots of resturants, pubs, shops and entertainment.
Great location although the room was smaller than expected. Staff were very polite and well mannered and the breakfast choices was good.

Return to Edinburgh

Posted 12-Mar-2015
On a whim, nearly 40 years after my last visit & the first time for my partner, we decided on a few days break in Edinburgh.A bit of discount through work perks scheme led us to The George. Very comfortable, great base for exploring. Kilted door staff was a surprise. Can't comment on the food as we ate out, but the room itself was fine. Hotel within a few minutes walking distance of Waverley Station. We'll be going back.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, but noisy

Posted 10-Mar-2015
Pros: Location, staff, bed, breakfast.
Cons: They should think about installing double glass window to keep the noise out. Also the chef needs to work on the poached eggs.
Pros: the location is spot on, in the middle of the city centre, so it's perfect if you like to walk everywhere. The staff is friendly, and always ready to help. The bed was very comfortable, probably the best about the room, and the tea & coffee facilities were a welcome touch. Breakfast was brilliant, very good croissants, fresh fruit and pancakes, only bad thing was the poached egg which tasted of vinegar, but it was a minor detail. Cons: maybe we had bad luck with our room (123), but it was very noisy all through the night. A bar downstairs kept throwing glass bottles on the bin every half hour, and more than a few drunk guests decided the best spot to have a loud conversation was in front or our room door. We were so tired from walking all day that we still managed to get a good sleep, but if you are a light sleeper, be careful. All in all, I definitely recommend the hotel.
