Room perfect.Staff very pleasant and helpful. THE CLOCK FROM HELL. 7a.m the clock chimes every 15 minutes. Went for a lovely night in the city. Definitely won't be back and would recommend anyone staying ask for a quiet room as room 465 was the room from Hell with the clock chimes.

Myself and my mom recently stayed at this hotel, we came to Edinburgh for her 60th birthday. We arrived to the hotel and checked in very promptly by a very helpful lady. She gave Mom an envelope. She offered us help with our bags, but we had no problem in bringing them with us. We got to the room which... More

My wife and I stayed at The George for two nights on the 21- 22nd Feb. I must say this is a great hotel if your looking for a centrally located place to stay. If your flying into Edinburgh airport jump on the 100 bus (£4 ) and this will take you 50 metres from the hotel door. First impressions... More

Only stayed here for one night as a birthday getaway but this hotel was lovely. The reception staff were great and gave a lot of information. I was a bit disappointed there was no offer to help us with our bags considering finding our room was a bit of a maze and quite a walk. The room was beautiful, we... More

The George is in a great location for Princes street etc, easy to get to from the airport via the tram to St Andrews Square. The rooms are very big and have everything you need, iron, ironing board, etc. I had one of the rooms with the sunken baths with a large bathroom, so that was pretty cool. The breakfast... More

My wife and I booked a last minute Double Deluxe room at the George Hotel in Edinburgh. The hotel is conveniently situated to explore the city, and the breakfast was of a particularly high standard. That said, we were somewhat surprised regarding our experience on checking out. Whilst the room we were allocated was pleasant enough, it clearly did not... More

stayed here for 2 nights over a weekend when Wales were playing Scotland in rugby. The hotel was really nice. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The rooms were spacious and well equipped. Considering there were lots of merry people staying in the hotel, the rooms were surprisingly well sound proofed. The hotel bar is also quite stylish and had... More
