The whole hotel experience at the George Hotel was completely faultless. The staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming. The rooms were spotless, warm and very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious. The flight was cancelled on our return and had to stay at the George Hotel an extra night, the staff welcomed us back with mulled wine! Excellent stay, thank you.
I booked a room at The George Hotel as a special birthday treat for my husband. I wanted somewhere right in the city and this was the perfect location, we even managed to find a parking space! The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and the bed was possibly the most comfortable I have ever stayed in!
The hotel was in central Edinburgh and close to all the attractions.the room was very spacious Lack of parking as public parking very expensive.
location, standard of accommodation bedrooms were very warm even with no heating on. We were unable to open a window due to noise on street. This was a minor complaint.
Location, cleanliness and the staff who welcomed at door. They have a great manner and seem genuinely want to please guests. Reception staff need much more warmth, smile more and actually treat people as such. Rooms clean bu quite small for price - felt a little cramped at time.
Location. Friendly Staff. The new bar/restaurant area looks good however the only downside is the seating area near the bar soon filled up and even though there were empty tables on the lower floor level there seemed to be a reluctance to give these to guests who just wanted a drink. The reception area is still going through refurbishment which meant long queues soon began to build up when guests began arriving in numbers which was an inconvenience to be honest. No doubt this will be resolved when the work is completed.
almost everything the cooked breakfast wasn't hot enough
From the minute I walked into the hotel I felt very welcomed. The staff were attentive and perfectly freindly and professional. I travel alot internationally and truthfully feel that this was one of the best hotel experiences I've had in my life. Being that I do travel alot, it means the world when you can sleep peacefully in extreme comfort. From arrival to departure the George was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend it and will return there when in Edinburgh. A gentleman named " Willy" was a gem, very helpful. Thank You.
The hotel kindly acknowledged our anniversary. All the staff were wonderful.
enjoyed the comfort and eating at the restaurant
very enjoyable stay in a superb hotel, excellent meals, very helpful staff, nothing too much trouble to make our stay memorable
Brilliant location for all the reasons anyone would visit Edinburgh - sites shops reatauramts
Everything!!!! The staff were excellent throughout- ur room was very spacious with a brilliant view over Edinburgh. Restaurant and bar were fabulous and enjoyed having the luxury of the spa right on the doorstep. Fabulously central location.
The quality fo the room was excellent and the free upgrade was very much appreciated, as were all the little extra touches. The breakfast.
Beautiful, excellent location No coffee or non caloric sweetener in room
Using the Vermillion lounge in the evening for a quiet drink was very pleasant. The Scottish chap with very short hair who attends the door in reception is a great asset to the hotel. We came accross him on several occasions he was always helpful, pleasant, professional and friendly, give him a large pay rise!!!! We had some difficulty getting drinks in the Vermillion lounge. I dialed the number on the card as suggested but no answer. The chap from Chile who is studying for a Master in economic development sorted us out in the end, another significant asset for you hotel I hope you look after him
We were upgraded to the publisher suite which was spacious and atmospheric. This really helped to make toe stay memorable. The staff were friendly and obliging. Overall an excellent service.
the staff were extremly friendly
The helpful staff Could benefit from air conditioning
Friendly helpful staff, very comfortable room, excellent service
Staff welcoming and courteous. Good size rooms and facilities excellent
All of the staff where extremely helpful.
So very central. Useful to be able to get to the Waverley Station via the lower back door which was just a case of crossing the road to the station. Would be useful to enable access for booking into the hotel. Staff were helpful and friendly with no exceptions. There was no 'heart' to the hotel. No where to sit peacefully other than the Bistro which was open to other customers and did not have seats to lounge in.
The hotel was excellently situated was very clean and furnishings were of a very high standard. The facilities in the room included a microwave and kitchen type sink which was very handy. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The parking was difficult and you had to pay a meter but spaces were very limited.
I was disappointed that the room wasn't ready on time, it was 30 mins late. I'm pleased I didn't pay full price for the room, I still payed enough but if I had paid full price I would have been very annoyed
The hotels staff and luxurious rooms.
Appeared recently updated. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great location close to the train station and right off the Royal Mile. Large elevator. Bathroom very nice. Bathroom shower did not have any kind of shelf for shampoo, facecloth, etc. No where but the floor to put anything. Safe did not work, but maintenance replaced it sometime our first day. Sliding doors for closet and refrigerator, microwave area did not work. Very difficult to move doors. They ground off aluminum off the track when moving doors. All of the lights in the room were either all off or all on. Window would not close all the way.
The rooms are well decorated; the hotel is in a great location - really excellent; the shuttle bus is useful. We were moved room twice in a five night stay. The first move was due to the sofa-bed in the studio dulexe not working. We were then upgraded to a one-bedroom apartment. This room did not have proper bathroom facilities and the bathroom flooded while the shower was in use. This resulted in a nightmarish experience - including three plumbers at the door within five minutes - clearly an ongoing situation. The room being flooded was not reported to hotel management until I complained to staff a third time. We also did not receive toiletries on a daily basis (had to ring reception to request them); did not receive an adequate number of towels; admired the charming cobwebs across the ceiling; had to request the sofa-bed to be made up several times; noted a complete lack of communication between staff and so forth.
staff all very helpful and polite nothing
Excellent value with the ideal location for all the sights and amenities Not being able to open an account for the restaurant or bar
excellent location and comfortable space the hotel offered what i needed tho if you want room service there is not enough room for an table
Excellent design of the bathroom The lift(s). If there was a second one I do not know and the one was used for carrying linen, services, quests. Useless.
It was central, pleasant quite spacious and comfortable. Room faced a wall, No drawer space, bathroom was badly laid out with no ventilation. There was no bar
The location of the Suites couldn't have been better. Just off the Royal Mile it was central to everything. I would have liked more frequent maid service
Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.
The rooms were clean and comfortable and the spa was very relaxing.
Central Location - 1 min from bus & train station, shopping centre, pubs & restaurants, Spa Facilities and Staff were also excellent
Beautiful, brand new hotel. Our city double room was lovely and fairly spacious. Staff were lovely, very pleasant and helpful. None really, other than we didn't receive our complimentary newspaper, but we weren't bothered enough about it to enquire.
the pool and breakfast in bed friendly staff lack off parking for near hotel access also i bumpd the back of my car parking outside as you have to reverse park on a busy road!
Staff were wonderfully helpful. The fitness room was very well-appointed. There was no chair (except for the desk chair) in the room, and the restaurant could use some improvement in quality.
Excellent room. Sauna, steam room & pool facilities very good.
The location of the hotel is perfect to enjoy Edimburgh,very clean hotel and the staff was very good, also the cocktails are well worth a try! It was a very good stay, if anything the hotel should install doubble glazing or double windows, also having to queue for breakfast in a 4 star hotel is not really good so make the most of the breakfast in your room for an extra £2.50, that was perfect and on time! no queue!
Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! Lighting was rather dim & furniture was slightly dusty.
the hotel was central comfortable good facilities and hotel staff v.ery helpful and courteous
The upgraded room was appreciated we will stay here again. Did not have breakfast - thought that £16.50 was expensive
Easy to drive to and park my car. Ideal city centre location. Exclusive hotel for a rugby supporter's weekend.
good facility. hospitallity of staffs. and location. somehow internet is not working properly good in both case of WIFI nor Wired connection.
Room was very comfortable. There was lots of choice for breakfast. The hotel location was very good for castle and other attractions. We were near lots of restaurants.
Good car parking. Close to city center. Great breakfast. Frendley staff
the proximity to the main Edinburgh attractions, parking availability, supply of extra pillows, big rooms.
Efficient, slightly impersonal, no problems I resent the fact that they doubled the prices of their rooms during the Edinburgh Festival. I also think for the price breakfast should be included.
Central location, valet parking
Large, confortable rooms. Located within walking distance to all city attractions Noice from neighbouring pubs at night/early morning.
The room There was a refurb going on so had to put up with constant drilling was not relaxing
The pub and the location of the hotel.
The location was excellent for access to the heart of Edinburgh but is in a very seedy and grimy area of town. The entrance to the hotel is through the beer garden of a raucous pub-nightclub so expect to weave your way through beer-swilling drunken crowds on hens and stags nights if you stay on a weekend. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. But the blinds in our room were broken or removed and there seems to be no maintenance carried out.
Location was good but room was of a poor standard for the price bathroom was full of mould, shower dripped constantly and there was no room to move in the room
service and a fantastic breakfast
Location It was grand for a rugby weekend but would not go back if there were other choices
We stayed in one of the small rooms. It was indeed small, but extremely well designed and comfortable. It was surprisingly quiet for all of the Fringe mayhem. The shower was the best hotel shower of any hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We love this place and will stay here again.
location noise and size of room,breakfast
it was a plesent hotel the door men at three sisters
location more lighting required in breakfast diner - very dark
I liked the vacinity of the hotel and the staff were very very helpful and friendly.
Basic accommodation in good location. Powerfull shower Fire alarm went off 3 times early in the morning and there was no appologies or explanation from staff. Bedding did not fit the bed and was of poor quality. Quite noisy as located next to the three sisters
the hotel is stunning, very unique, modern and a great place to chill out after being round the shops in edinburgh
was very noisy, did not receive free paper that we were offered.. Design was nice but that should not qualify for a 5 stars, was 3/4..
Central location, especially for the Tatoo Hardest bed we have seen on this month long trip. Inadequate luggage racks or space for clothing storage. It would be ok for an over nighter but not for someone on a long trip. Out of 6 hotels we have stayed in so far on this trip, your was the only one without a bath tub.
The design of the hotel was really modern but still comfortable. When we arrived I was not expecting to have £100 per night deducted from my bank account, especially since we had already paid for it in full. Fine if you have a credit card as you dont notice the money leaving your a/c (its refunded when you check out) but if you dont have a credit card (I dont) then they ask for a debit card which means that you are money short in your account. If this had been mentioned prior to booking then maybe I would have reconsidered staying there. Its ok if they had just taken the card details but to acutally take the money was unexpected and quite unfair to say that we had already paid for the room etc. There was no warning of this and it was lucky that I had plenty of funds in the account!
The comfortable rooms and central location and choice to stay in the Hotel or not.
Fresh looking hotel Tv did not work despite changing rooms. No fresh black pepper or brown sauce available at breakfast. Waiter unable to confirm the Scottish Breakfast ingredients. Unable to access restaurant from lift as doors locked.
Rooms were lovely and beds very comfy. Bathroom very modern and shower was amazing. Requested an iron in the room prior to arrival but it wasn't there. The heating came on at 6am and was very noisy. This woke my partner and I up and we couldn't get back to sleep with the noise. The tea/coffee machine in the room did not work. Left my straighteners behind in the room but when I contacted the hotel to enquire about this they said they checked and they were not there. That is a mystery to me.
beautiful design, great location, friendly and helpful staff
Attention to detail, throughout the hotel
Very friendly and efficient staff. Luxurious contemporary feel / look. Nice breakfast. Upgrade unexpected, but very much appreciated - nice touch. Difficult to get room wamer with controls. was not freezing cold but my wife would have preferred it warmer. Couldn't seem to watch different channels on the different TV's at the same time, but this may not have been possible anyway!
The room was excellent , staff were extremely helpful and polite .
Its convenience for a city break plus comfort and value Should of stayed longer.
Location is perfect for exploring Edinburgh on foot Old rooms, bad beds, poor hygiene, breakfast not so nice.
Comfortable, clean & friendly in great location. Nice breakfast Evening meal a bit disappointing -starters freshly prepared & tasty. Main course did not live up to description but filled a gap. Setting basic rather than romantic. However very handy for a late arrival on a wet evening & reasonable price for Edinburgh.
The building has got plenty of character and was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpfuland ithe restaurant good. It was very central but in a quiet location.
Hotel is in aquite place, yet very central. Rooms are clean and refurbished in a contemporary style. Rooms are a bit small.
ountry House hotel feel, staff very friendly, room very clean and well serviced. Restaurant quite small, not advised to book when checking in so not always possible for all residents to eat dinner.Single beds a little close together.Not sure what was 'special' about the special twin room.
This hotel provided good service at a price which is acceptable and the location is idea
A clean and tidy hotel with good facilities and helpful staff Some rooms at the top of many flights of stairs
Very central and comfortable. The breakfast was reasonable quality and room was clean and comfortable
Excellent breakfast, friendly staff great location minor point: poor baggage-leaving area - not secured or really watched, didn't use it.
the room nothing to declare
Great location in city center Services were poor for the price charged, parking was very expensive, room was small, no face towels, lobby has vending machines with limited service and cramped
Wonderful hotel with great staff. Craig, the Manager, was a great guy always helpful and smiley! Would definitely come back. Nothing!
proximity to Royal Mile Hotel wanted to charge 25 pounds per day for small dog.When queried, they then said £25 for entire stay. Eventally,they did not charge for dog.I thought this was a very excessive charge and this should have been stated before we made the booking.
Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are big and confortable. Nothing negative expect for the breakfast. Limit amount of breakfast. Might not be a good choice if you are going to stay in Edinburgh for more than 4 days.
Clean and secure hotel. Good simple breakfast.
It was nice to experience a brand new hotel that was only opened two days prior staying.
Pleasant modern hotel good location , good breakfast Heating difficult to operate no instructions extra blankets not provided
Clean and good location
The hotel is in a convenient location for walking around the Royal Mile area and exploring Edinburgh. It was clean, comfortable and the included breakfast was good too.
Central location. Comfortable room. Breakfast could be improved with more selection of hot food.
The location is perfect: right below the Royal Mile and next to the central station and the bus stop to/from the airport. The staff is friendly enough, the room clean and comfortable.
very central far too expensive for a three star hotel
Excellent value for money for great location. Large, clean room very comfortable.
Great location, very comfortable hotel at a reasonable price, very easy access to the royal mile from the back. Thought the male receptionist checking me in was a bit unfriendly, probably the end of a long shift. I did not take any of the coooked buffet breakfast as it looked so unappetising. Rest of the breakfast was very nice though.
Cheap rates for Edinburgh. Tired and room not clean - empty crisp packet lying on floor. A little spartan.
Convenient location N/A
the reseption staff who made our checked in was very helpfull staff
The location is fairly central which is good. The hotel was generally cold throughout, the room was cold. The room was clean however i would say the bathroom requires some form of general cleanup. I would imagine there are cleaner more comfortable hotels for the same money elswhere.
The location is great for sightseeing and for shopping, and is just a couple of minutes from the train station. The rooms are a good size and were very clean. The rooms at the front overlooking the train station are very noisy.
I liked the fact that tho we presented ourselves off the flight from Dublin at 8.15 am the receptionist said we could access the room after housekeeping had finished, around 10.15. We had breakfast and returned, very grateful. Had no complaints
The restaurant "Number one": excellent staff, good food. The location of the hotel and the view on the old city. Very noisy hotel, not enough privacy: train station beneath the hotel, doors being smashed all day, staff knocking on doors to check on the room too often. The room had not been refurbished in a very long time. The bed was not particularly confortable. Much too expensive for the service provided and quality of the rooms.
Beautiful historic hotel in the perfect location. The staff could not have done more to be helpful. The room was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The bathroom was spectacular. The light level in the room was so subdued that it was difficult to see inside your suitcase. Other than that no complaints at all.
Hotel staff are very attentive and quality of the meals excellent.
very very good had all we required Evert up its standard
The Number One was a tremendous experience. The hotel and restaurant staff could not have been better during our stay. I would simply say keep it up!
Everything about this hotel is fantastic, and consistently so. The service in particular is always outstanding.
The One restaurant has excellent and unusual food servewd by impecably trained servers.
the staff were lovely booked double executive room, but think we got a budget room double bed two different height mattresses. asked them to sort it, they didnt. bathroom poor room smaller than stated in description
Lovely room, thoughtfully decorated, wonderful service.
Excellent city centre location, helpful and friendly on reception, liked ability to have breakfast delivered to room. Didnt find staff very helpful in breakfast room, had to continually ask for coffee then no milk on table. Despite staying on my own in double room tried 2 charge for 2 breakfasts each morning on leaving.
Easy access to city sites, good food, pleasant bar staff No
In the city centre Far too noisy if over looking Prince's Street
The location right on Princes Street is nice. The water came out the tap yellow. Also, they need to upgrade the plumbing fixtures so that hot and cold water aren't separate taps. The surcharges for Internet and even TV (!!!) were outrageous. I've never stayed at a hotel that required patrons to pay extra for basic TV.
The view, the convenience for the station and it was central for all the attractions, castle , gardens , etc. It was very good that you could leave bags on your day of departure ( travelodge charge £3.00 per bag ). Although clean enough the hotel looked a little bit worn and could do with smartning up
Easy access to the high street and other local amenities. Breakfast selection was good and evening was reasonable. No all dishes were of a high standard. My friend's main course was only just warm and not the same standard as my fish dish, which was very good. Unfortnately the room we were given had had a flood the previous night and the carpet was soaking wet. They should not have offered to room that evening.
hotel placed in an ideal position for ease of getting around edinburgh and a nice place to chill out
Clean, great location Bathroom seemed like it was for handicapped people
Location to station and shops/restaurants etc Wi-Fi had been free before...but you're now charging!!, which I wasn't aware of till checked-in.
TV Price for breakfeast and evening dinner is a rip-off. Would never eat there!
Lovely views. Not hearing the people in the room next door. Every staff member we spoke to were curtious and happy to help us. Cleanliness of rooms. Hot shower whenever we wanted. Plenty of tourist brochures. Reasonably priced meals in the Dining Room.
Friendly staff My room was small. Unwelcoming entrance hall.
For us the location was the spot on, being ony minutes from the railway station and in the centre of the city and shopping district. The Hotel was comfortable and the buffet breakfast was very good Whilst the service in the restaurant was good this was not always the same at the reception or the bar
coffee was made in apot previously used for making tea; therefore coffee was awful
location dated decor, no iron/ironing board, unfriendly staff
the breakfast and the size of the room. the location as well!
Location The merchant's website is not elaborative if you open a mobile version. It didnt show to book for a child. I was fooled by the same as had to pay extra for my child. For some reason, they charged me the whole amount for bfast inclusive, but bfast deal wasn't showing. I travelled from India and had the worst experience as had to check out early.
Nice place, central location, staff were friendly, a good experience.
Location of hotel on Princes Street, excellent breakfast and great view of castle from room. nothing our visit was fine
Ideal location, clean room, comfortable stay no proper view of the outside. Staff could have been friendlier
The central position on Princes Street, so convenient for buses, walking to tourist places and resturants.
I was attracted by its remarkable location, less than a minute from the train station. But i was most impressed by the quiet of its rooms. Ask for a quiet room and you will forget you are in the heart of a major city. And the staff are excellent. They are in the process of redoing the rooms. The one I stayed in was somewhat dated but perfectly comfortable..
Location of hotel was excellent Waited 30 minutes on luggage arriving and had to return to reception, who explained they didn't know where it was to go as they had forgotten to take room number. Also the bathroom didn't appeared to have been freshly cleaned prior to our arrival.
Although this was a brief trip the standard of room, staff and facilities were excellent. Room was a bit noisy from traffic outside
Central location for shops and restaurants Noise from street - not really fault of hotel. Very drafty windows - needs double glazing/draft excluders
Exellent location Parking was my only issue and i thought the bar prices were expensive for the quality of the drinks but there are better bars within walking distance so not a major issue.
Price of room and friendly staff 1st room was noisy
close to train station and night life too expensive, not very clean, nothing extra (e.g. bathrobes, slippers etc)
location housekeeping poor. On both nights of my stay i had to request towels for the room, on 2nd day there were no towels at all.
location, nice facilities, efficient staff, understated elegence.
room was very clean
