The hotel is currently undergoing redecoration/refurbishment and this in the main has been tastefully done. A major problem in the first room we were allocated was a total lack of drawer space in the room and no storage space for wash bags etc in the bathroom. They have put 2 bedside tables in the room for lamps but these have... More

I stayed at the hotel over the Xmas period in 2015 with my wife, and had Xmas dinner in the function room. We found the staff to be excellent and so very helpful and polite in every respect, could not fault any of the staff members that we met. We had a very nice breakfast each morning, and we were...

I am a regular of the hotel and have stayed whilst this has gone through its most recent refurbishment, before and after. When arriving tonight I entered with the same warm welcome as always and a complimentary upgrade to my room. I stayed in a suite which was a wonderful surprise and had a very boutique type feel. Finished to... More

We're just back from a superb overnight at the recently refurbished George Hotel. We were in room 103 (where George Clooney recently stayed). The bed was amazingly comfortable, the shower and bathroom spacious and well stocked with Neal's Yard products. Friends joined us for a delicious dinner at The Printing Press and we enjoyed an equally breakfast there this morning.... More

We stayed here for two nights on a break to celebrate my wife's birthday. I had booked it on a discounted offer. First thing is the hotel location - very central for city attractions and easy walking reach from Waverley Station. The hotel has recently been refurbished and looks well. The Georgian style lobby and reception area is grand. The... More

We went to Edinburgh for a weekend family break. On arrival an upgrade was granted. The concierge was attentive and took our bags up to our room whilst we headed off to the zoo. Our room was beautiful having been refurbished to a very high standard and the room had the biggest bed ever. The house wine was very well... More

My Granddaughter and I went for lunch yesterday to the Printing Press in the George Hotel and I take my hat off to the chefs, waiters/resses. Our 3 courses were to say the least the best I have had in a long time anywhere! My advise for the main course is the 8oz sirloin steak which we both had -... More

Good start with an upgrade at check-in to a very spacious 6th floor room with a grand view over the north of the city to Fife. Quite expensive but worth it. Refurbished restaurant called the Printing Press, perfectly satisfactory. Helpful and attentive staff in all areas.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
