        Individual guest reviews

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Central location in Edinburgh, and very friendly helpful staff.

        • Single
          9.6

          Well kept, modern, clean and central.

          My room was at the front over the main street. The sash window provided little if any noise insulation. The night club opposite emptied noisily between 2.30 am and 3.30 am. I was treated to a long and out of tune rendition of the Marseillaise. Ask for a room at the back!

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Simple thing,like being offered a glass of champs on arrival and a friendly welcome

        • Family with children
          8.8

          quiet location yet accessible to places of interest in the city, including the church, train station, shops, and restaurants; the room I got was spacious and had the minimum amenities one would expect in a 4-star hotel, the staff were generally friendly and helpful, particularly, the concierge

        • Family with children
          10.0

          The staff were particularly thoughtful, as they provided for an extra bed for my daughter who accompanied us in our trip. The room and bed were big (they said they upgraded our accommodation to what we reserved online). The concierge was helpful and recommended some excellent restaurants.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          friendly, excellent staff and accomodation, good food and facilities

        • Single
          8.8

          Bang on the main street in New Town Edinburgh. Convenient for various museums and shopping. Communal parts are pretty swish. Rooms nice.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Staff were very courteous in all areas of the hotel.

          On checking in I was second in the queue of first 3 people, then 4. Others were offered a glass of champagne, we were not, I asked Reception if I could have coffee, they confirmed I could have it in the lobby as I waited for my husband to arrive, 10 minutes later I was still waiting. No big deal but slightly irritating, especially when otherwise service was impeccable.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We booked The George hotel for my 50th birthday celebration and loved every minute of our stay. The room was lovely, the breakfast delicious, the staff attentive, the building glorious and the bar perfect for people watching both through the windows and inside the bar! Any negative reports we read about the hotel from its website were obviously from people who have nothing better to do than complain. We adored it, will recommend it and will be returning.

        • Single
          7.4

          Location excellent, great views from room. Staff gave good help and advice after Edinburgh airport was shut due to Iceland ash - helped us make a good fast decision

          Slow lifts (even got stuck once, for a very brief time) and internet was down most of the time - but that can happen anywhere I guess. Noisy (heavy) room doors could be heard often.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Fabulous position in great part of Edinburgh. Excellent restaurant and bar.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The room was very good. Staff were particularly good and accomodating.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The staff were very good and attentive

          The music in the bar was so loud you couldn't have a conversation

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          the location was good for all amenities, Bar very nice and relaxing

          It certainly was not value for money, the room was quite small, certainly not luxury hotel by any means,

        • Older travelers
          8.4

          The hotel was central and the staff were very efficient and friendly.

          Felt that the rooms were rather small and would not like to stay more than a couple of nights as not much storage etc. Tempus Bar was ideal for breakfast but would not like to dine there - felt there was a bit of a smell of stale beer.
