I had a very pleasant stay at the Old Waverley Hotel. It was very clean and the staff was very friendly. Also the location and especially the view was amazing. I can only recommend it.
Thank you for very much!

Disliked: Room comfort
This trip was for a quiet and reflective time before yearend. I read about this hotel before departure and I can agree with the helpful staff. It could be because of the covid limited housekeeping routine, but I thought the cleaning was not thorough. The bed was too soft for me. The hotel was generally well maintained but quite a few details needed to be attended to. The location is excellent.
