We had booked to stay for a weekend to start our Christmas shopping as an excuse for a weekend away. Hubby had stayed at the George many years ago on business and thought it would be a good place to stay. We had also stayed in many other Principal Hayley hotels and so we thought we knew what to expect.... More

Had a great stay, the deluxe room was perfect. Very clean, great room service and lovely staff. Will definitely stay again. Our evening meal was in the adjoining Tempus restaurant, service was not great and food wasn't good which was disappointing.

Booked a few days away as a present for my husbands birthday. I was very pleased with my choice! We caught the bus from the airport and it stopped almost outside the hotel door. We were given a lovely welcome on arrival, as it was only 8am our lugaged was stored safely. When we returned we were given a voucher... More

Fancy old hotel, as such we had high expectations, which were not met. We asked for a quiet room and were assured we would have one. We were put in a room on the second floor facing the street, which happens to be across from the Hard Rock Cafe. It was a Saturday night and the noise at high decibel... More

I had a night at the George and found it to be a very pleasant and high quality hotel with wonderful service and great rooms. The location is perfect for business and tourists. My inly suggestion to The George is that the standard of the rooms whilst good were tatty in some parts.

This hotel is one of the best I have stayed in. Cleanliness, location, comfort, food, friendly and welcoming staff during our one night stay was second to none. We had two rooms and because we had a 4 year old with us the adjoining door was perfect. The hotel is perfectly located for shops, restaurants and bars. I will most... More

From the moment you arrive at the hotel, the feeling of coming home is amazing,all of the staff were very warm and friendly, certainly living up to the reputation of friendly Scot's. I have always loved Edinburgh and now I have found the George and its beautiful stylish rooms with the sort of space you would expect in a country... More

Great hotel, good location, fabulous breakfasts, lovely staff, spoilt by constant noise from bin and delivery trucks outside. Windows closed but still kept awake. It was so bad we resorted to buying ear plugs which helped but even those didn't cure the problem. We had two adjoining rooms for a family weekend and at those prices would have expected a... More
