central to most attractions

Posted 11-Jan-2017
Pros: being central ,
Cons: up date rooms,and better lift facilities a must
Location: waverly station,shopping,bars restaurants ,and close to old town
the hotel is well positioned,old/historic but tired ,room on top floor small,with small bathroom and lopsided bed,and 1 tiny inadequate lift for all,could have been much better,hotel facilities,bar/restaurant looked good but didn't try,if you are handicapped there are stairs to climb to reception from entrance

Pratico hotel in indizione strategica

Posted 01-Jan-2017
L'hotel è dotato di ogni comfort. È vicino a tutto ciò di interesse in città. Una menzione speciale allo staff che si è dimostrato straordinariamente disponibile. Abbiamo avuto bisogno di assistenza medica e non hanno lesinato sforzi per aiutarci. Tutti i ragazzi meritano un BRAVO! Grazie ancora a tutto lo staff del'Old Waverley hotel, Laura

Very comfy rooms (a little warm though), and a location that can't be beat.

The location is why I chose this hotel!

Posted 28-Dec-2016
Excellent location. With a huge suitcase and a back problem, I had to be near to the station. I lugged my bag up their stairs but discovered they have a porter who will carry your bags. The room was ok. View of a fire escape, but cosy! And I wasn't staying for the view, just needed a room for one night. Tea bags looked terrible. No brand. Luckily I'd bought some supplies on the way there. Staff seemed nice enough. I would stay again.

Nice hotel close to shopping.

Posted 15-Dec-2016
Early for our check in staff put our bag in storage. Check in was quick and to the point. Soon was cosy with a heater you controlled yourself. Very clean and an extra blanket. Good was lovely. We ate in the bar looking over Princes street and the Christmas markets. The only criticism we have was the barmaid on our first night kept disappearing and some other guests and ourselves had to request service. We were hoping to finish dinner with a desert but no-one to order from. When she returned at 9. 05 we were told it was too late to order. On Mon night a different barmaid brought out good at 9. 15. I would stay at this hotel again though.
