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.
enjoyed the comfort and eating at the restaurant
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.
The hotel kindly acknowledged our anniversary. All the staff were wonderful.
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, 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.
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!
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.
Brilliant location for all the reasons anyone would visit Edinburgh - sites shops reatauramts
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.
very enjoyable stay in a superb hotel, excellent meals, very helpful staff, nothing too much trouble to make our stay memorable
almost everything the cooked breakfast wasn't hot enough
Excellent value with the ideal location for all the sights and amenities Not being able to open an account for the restaurant or bar
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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
staff all very helpful and polite nothing
The hotels staff and luxurious rooms.
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 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.
Service and attention to detail Nothing to report
The grandeur, the comfort, the facilities, the location, the staff. The leisure complex is a little tired, but pleasant nonetheless!
nothing It is a very old Hotel .It needs to be renovated urgently .The toilet flush is broken , noisy AC , non hot water avaliablility ( it was for a limited time but not expected from a five star Hotel ) . The staff talk without looking at your face with an unfriendly manner . The pool is again too old and need to be renewed so that the price paid to the Hotel is too much in comparison what you get .
Absolutely everything. I had always wanted to stay at the hotel and t lived up to all of my expectations The only thing I would change would have been to have a bigger bed in our room. Kingsize just wasn't big enough!!
Good reception we arrived early room ready and all very efficient similarly check out very efficient Breakfast, we were put in a cold room, toast took an age to produce , one poor machine and when we left the queue was 25 yards long to get in for breakfast
The location of the hotel was good Hilton are using there brand to sell below standard rooms. I would never stay here again
The friendly and welcoming attitude of the staff, in particular the concierge. The have maintained the standard of the hotel since changing to a Hilton. It was well located for walking to Murrayfield for rugby.
Delightful! We hope to return to Edinburgh one day, and when we do, we will stay at the Caledonian. Couldja make it stop raining?
The room was quiet and had a lovely view of Edinburgh. The staff were very helpful and the standard of cleanliness excellent. The leisure facilities were of a high standard also. The price of breakfast seemed high even for the standard of hotel.
Everything was great except bed was very uncomfortable
excellent staff shame about the hotel. qeues for brakefast,electrcity cutting out in the room due to faulty wiring. not a five star as far as i could see gets the rating on facilitys rather than class,
Room very nice. cleanliness of room excellent. Staff friendly and helpful.Close to shops and visitor attractions.
view of castle from hieghts restaurant, location of hotel No fridge in room no radio having to pay for breakfast having to pay for internet access lifts very poor (not updated since previous college use) no air conditioning control windows not double glazed - noise, draughts
Rapid sorting out/ upgrade when the door lock to out room failed The fact thaty the door lock failed
Convenience of location As I had a front room over a weekend, the noise from the pubs in Grassmarket was a bit much.
The view of Edinburgh castle was out of this world.
Staff were lovely. Looking a bit tired. Desk in room had big scratch on it. Also, on a previous stay breakfast was on the top floor which was lovely. This time we were in the lower part of the ground floor restaurant. The continental breakfast choice was quite poor considering the price. The toast was merely warmed up bread and coffee wasn't particularly hot. My elderly parents in their 80s, who were also staying, were unable to shower as they couldn't get in or out of the very steep sided bath.
Ideal city location for theatre, dinining and shopping.
It has a great location, with lovely views of the castle and lots of food and bars nearby.
The views of Edinburgh
the bathroom was really dark with only lights over the wash basin. a large water stain on the ceiling was not very attractive!
At arrival we were met in the parking lot by a very friendly man tha helped us with our luggage. The staff at the receptiondesk was very nice. The room was exellent. In the bathroom we were delighted to see a rubber duckling on top of the towels across the bath! It's the little things that count!
the proximity to the main Edinburgh attractions, parking availability, supply of extra pillows, big rooms.
The upgraded room was appreciated we will stay here again. Did not have breakfast - thought that £16.50 was expensive
Good car parking. Close to city center. Great breakfast. Frendley staff
Easy to drive to and park my car. Ideal city centre location. Exclusive hotel for a rugby supporter's weekend.
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.
The room There was a refurb going on so had to put up with constant drilling was not relaxing
Large, confortable rooms. Located within walking distance to all city attractions Noice from neighbouring pubs at night/early morning.
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.
good facility. hospitallity of staffs. and location. somehow internet is not working properly good in both case of WIFI nor Wired connection.
Central location, valet parking
comfort and proximity to the highlights of the city Had stayed there on previous occasions
Hotelroom Temperature in bar very cold, barkeeper not very friendly (I have no time to make tea)
Site, staff, facilities and room No
Relaxing time spent with a friend. Enjoyed Indian head massage although would have preferred it without a top on rather than my arms and shoulders being massaged over my clothes! The breakfast on Saturday was cold...the sausages & bacon were undercooked!
Booked valentine dinner online, yet when we went down for dinner 1 hour before dinner was supposed to be finished we were told that we were not allowed in. The guy in the resturant was very unhelpful talking over everything I said to him.
Hotel and staff were excellent and perfect location, will stay there again.
location and staff air conditioning-room was too hot at night.
the friendliness and helpfulness of staff and the proximity of hotel to shops and bus stops I felt that the hallways on the way to the rooms were a bit shabby looking
Staff were very helpful. Rooms too hot but they did bring a fan on request which helped a little.
The location was perfect, the staff very helpful and the rooms were good size and perfectly clean.... I would definately stay at this hotel again
the rooms were elegant, well designed, functional and comfortable. also on the back of the hotel v quiet. the staff were very helpful. I would definitely come back to the Hudson. Pop music in the bar at breakfast time and when I said that I was leaving because of it, nobody offer to turn it down or off. I did not eat breakfast and therefore did not spend 10 pounds in the hotel.
The Hotel room is quite good, and also the location. quite central Staff could be a little bit more professional
Good location for central edinburgh, excellent service from friendly staff The bar was full in the early evening due to Christmas parties-some service such as a reserved area could have been made available for hotel residents.
We had a problem and had to leave early. Please be aware that the young lady on reception on Sunday am was excellent.
Location Room sizes very small and not suited for two people
The staff was very friendly. The rooms were clean and the location was very good. The showers didn't have doors or curtains so the water always got everywhere
Comfortable and walking distance to attractions. Helpful front desk lady. Clean room. Flatscreen tv and extra speaker in bathroom was a delightful bonus. Shower was difficult to use as there was no shower curtain and water sprayed everywhere in bathroom. Hotel restaurant was poorly staffed at breakfast.
very central for city, modern ,,comfortable beds and a mini bar the shower was fantastic
We liked our room, the bed was comfortable and the room temperature was perfect. The service at reception was excellent, with very friendly staff. the location is perfect for a city break in Edinburgh and overall was worth the money. There was a cleaning problem at the hotel which meant unfortunately a terrible stench was very evident outside the gents toilet in the reception area, which you had to pass to get to the ladies. The hotel did apologise. Also, someone else was able to charge drinks at the bar to our room. We were given the bill on departure, but the member of staff on reception was quick to accept that it had not been us and tore up the bill. They had not obtained a signature for the bar bill. We had paid for all our extras - food and drinks - in cash at the time of purchase. Hotels must get signatures for all extras to avoid this sort of problem. Despite the comfort of the bedroom, the room was a little dark.
stylish room, friendly staff, convenient location hotel very noisy at night due to nightclub downstairs
Fantastic cooked breakfast. Nice decor in room. Great location. Nothing
location noise and size of room,breakfast
Location It was grand for a rugby weekend but would not go back if there were other choices
The pub and the location of the hotel.
service and a fantastic breakfast
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.
I liked the vacinity of the hotel and the staff were very very helpful and friendly.
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.
it was a plesent hotel the door men at three sisters
location more lighting required in breakfast diner - very dark
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
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
The comfortable rooms and central location and choice to stay in the Hotel or not.
beautiful design, great location, friendly and helpful staff
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.
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 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 hotel is stunning, very unique, modern and a great place to chill out after being round the shops in edinburgh
Attention to detail, throughout the hotel
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 room was excellent , staff were extremely helpful and polite .
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..
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.
quality of room and first meal I thought the price of the breakfast was excessive at £19 for a hot breakfast.Went next door to Premier and got all you can east breakfast for £7.95. Also got breakfast in cafe just down the road for £4.95. This would put be off coming back. Maybe go to premier inn next door.
the staff brilliant with the children and nothing was to much trouble for them
room service and cleanliness of room both excellent Decor could be modernised a bit. No sink in the toilet for washing hands
Breakfast was good, whirlpool was good. Air con was not great and swimming pool is very small
Excellent breakfast! Limited parking available
The location is very good and the staff were friendly and attentive. These were the redeeming features. Poor car parking facilities, breakfast was uninspiring, room was not particularly clean.
Nice staff Did not get a separate bed for child (2years old) Poor kids playcorner
Room was very spacious, clean and overall good value for money. Location good also
Very nice room. Good sized bathroom. Excellent breakfast. As compared to most other hotels, the hot breakfast is part of the standard buffet. The dinner experience was not great. We tried Italian, Indian and Thai cuisine. Only the Thai cuisine was good.
Good position close to city centre and university
Very pleasant, efficient staff. A sense of 'grandness'! Breakfast seemed a little on the expensive side.
The room was excellent. The staff were vert welcoming. Although we arrived at 12pm and our checkin wasnt till 3pm they still allowed us into our room. We enjoyed everything about it.
As a guest being asked to pay extra for the basic spa facilities
the bed was comfortable,and easy access to city centre the bedroom was not what we expected,the decor needed maintained again in the bathroom,and the food was not to standard as we ordered and the food was served raw
An amazing hotel, all staff extremely frendly and professional
Great central hotel with fabulous luxury rooms and bathrooms Charges for movies/music very expensive
Excellent hotel & facilities. Modern, spacious interior. Complementary wifi, pool, + gym. Very helpful staff. Spa and breakfast are typically not included, but upgrade is possible for 90 GBP per day for 2 people. This includes access to the club lounge, the spa, unlimited drinks and snacks from 5:30-7:30pm, and breakfast in the lounge in the morning. If you wanted a greater selection for the breakfast, you could pay 5 GBP more per person for the breakfast at the One Square restaurant downstairs which includes a quite large selection of hot options and a large continental breakfast. All in all, the food and drinks were amazing. The spa was great - there is a heated hydropool and then multiple types of rooms around it: hammam, rock sauna, aromatherapy room, biosauna, etc. The location is a little further from the city center than I initially anticipated, but it wasn't a huge problem. It was about a 15-20 minute walk to the Edinburgh Castle and 20-30 if walking at a brisk pace to George St, Princes St, etc. where all the shops are. There isn't much to do around the hotel itself, particularly at night - it seems like a business neighborhood + convention center next door.
friendliness and helpfulness of staff spa facilities
peace and quiet
Our room was totally amazing and thoroughly enjoyed the view too. I found the website mislead me to believe the spa included the Infinity pool/spa, only to find out this was an extra £30 p/p on top, which I found totally disappointing!
The quality of the facilities & the standard of the presentation together with friendly staff. First class food and service in relaxed well-appointed surroundings.
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
The One restaurant has excellent and unusual food servewd by impecably trained servers.
Hotel staff are very attentive and quality of the meals excellent.
very very good had all we required Evert up its standard
Everything about this hotel is fantastic, and consistently so. The service in particular is always outstanding.
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.
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!
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.
Lovely room, thoughtfully decorated, wonderful service.
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.
hotel placed in an ideal position for ease of getting around edinburgh and a nice place to chill out
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.
Clean, great location Bathroom seemed like it was for handicapped people
In the city centre Far too noisy if over looking Prince's Street
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.
TV Price for breakfeast and evening dinner is a rip-off. Would never eat there!
Easy access to city sites, good food, pleasant bar staff No
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.
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.
Nice place, central location, staff were friendly, a good experience.
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
the breakfast and the size of the room. the location as well!
location dated decor, no iron/ironing board, unfriendly staff
Ideal location, clean room, comfortable stay no proper view of the outside. Staff could have been friendlier
Location of hotel on Princes Street, excellent breakfast and great view of castle from room. nothing our visit was fine
Friendly staff My room was small. Unwelcoming entrance hall.
The central position on Princes Street, so convenient for buses, walking to tourist places and resturants.
coffee was made in apot previously used for making tea; therefore coffee was awful
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.
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..
