First room was noisy and not properly sound proofed. Even with ear plugs it was noisy. I was moved the next night, and this room was quieter, but the bed was saggy. Not positive experience, I will look for another hotel next time I was in Edinburgh. I did not sleep well. On the positive side, breakfasts were good.

We stayed here last year and loved it - large comfortable bed and great room. We booked again to stay here again and they put us into the "new wing". which was through a very ugly and unappealing maze of a coridoor.. the room itself was really noisy. Extremely thin walls, we took a nap and were woken up by... More

The hotel was amazing. My boyfriend and I were only staying at the George Hotel for one night but from the moment we arrived to when we left the hotel staff couldn't do enough for us. Any problem or enquiry we had was no issue for them and they were happy to help. The hotel it's self was just stunning!... More

I can see from the previous reviews I must have been unfortunate but I was very disappointed in the hotel and the hotel bedrooms. I had ordered a premier room with city views, champagne, chocolate and rose petals on the bed. What I got was a third floor room looking into a building, a room that was characterless and really...

Everything was absolutely fabulous. Staff at reception desk were excellent and check in was simple and quick. The hotel room was, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was varied and tasty. All the staff we encountered were pleasant, cheerful and very helpful. This was our first visit to Edinburgh and will not be our last. We will stay at the George again.

Our travel agent pick The Goerge Hotel for our trip to Edinburgh. We were not disappointed with the selection. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only thing that I could say negative about the hotel is, why is there no free wifi?

Upon arrival , we were greeted by a member of staff who took our bags from the car and showed us into the impressive entrance hall. The staff were polite and efficient and friendly. Our room was...

Just stayed at The George on a £139 per night per room DBB deal. It is a superb hotel in an excellent location and within walking distance to the station. All the staff are very highly trained, polite and efficient. The room, although small had everything required for a city break, it was modern and spotlessly clean. The evening meal... More
