We visited The George Hotel Edinburgh with high expectations, due to the excellent reputation. The location is ideal and could not be faulted at all, and in fact, it was probably the best thing about the hotel. Upon arrival, the hotel looked very impressive and the lobby area was beautiful. Check in was relatively smooth, however, I was surprised to... More

I spent a couple of nights here for a special break and can't recommend it highly enough. We were given a suite because it was a special birthday break and we were also left with a card and a small box of chocolates - lovely touch. The staff are all extremely pleasant, courteous and on the ball - especially at... More

Had a wonderful day break with the family and stayed at the perfectly located George Hotel. The welcome from the start was very professional and personal from the concierge to the reception. The room for the 4 of us was very spacious with a wonderful bathroom. The bed!!! Wow the most comfortable bed I have slept in in years......Fantastic.

Perfect location on George Street, a fabulous street with great shops, bars and restaurants. For the outside the George Hotel looks lovely, a beautiful building with pretty window boxes of spring flowers just opposite The Dome. On entering the hotel I got a very warm reception from the kilted doorman, and the lobby is a very nice place to sit.... More

Beautiful hotel, great food and great location! George street is great, close to Princes street and hay market. Most tourist attractions are within walking distance of the hotel. Will definitely visit again :-). Friendly staff, very helpful. The bus from the airport stops just up from the hotel. Can't recommend this hotel enough.
