It's off from the Royal Mile, but a short walk, and the crowds! Plenty to do in and around the hotel. Rooms are huge, and beds comfortable. Don't bring a car because parking is a premium. Staff is great although the girls at reception were captivated with their computers. Had four meals in New Town area, and Tigerlily was one... More

In Edinburgh for the Military Tattoo the Tigrerlily, in George Street, was an ideal location. George street itself has many interesting shops and restaurants, perhaps a bit more upmarket than Princes Street. Princes Street is however only a few, walking, minutes away. A tram to and from the airport was easy and convenient. The hotel staff were excellent. The hotel... More

Spent a night for business at this lovely boutique hotel hotel. Great location, easy access from both train station and the airport. Attentive staff at check in. Huge room (standard), great amenities, chic and fancy and full of gadgets! Most important of all, great mattress and plenty of pillows!

This modern boutique hotel has everything you could wish for during a short break in Edinburgh. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and there is a great attention to detail in everything (like those complimentary fresh fruit bowls and bottles of mineral water that you appreciate most when you are out and about travelling). The bar and restaurant are... More

Stayed for a break in Edinburgh and loved it. Modern bar, restaurant and rooms - enjoyed the attention to detail and the food was good value. Will be staying again to try more of the menu and to put a bigger dent in the cocktail list.

The room was STUNNING, bed was the centre piece and very comfy with a lounging area that had a roaring fire place, the first night we ordered room service, soft shell crab and steak, both delicious, plus numerous cocktails which...

We had a DBB itison deal. The hotel was perfect and very modern and kept very clean and scuff free. Staff very friendly and helpful. Excellent location for seeing the city. Great food selection and amazing cocktails in a stylish hotel bar. Stay here if in Edinburgh. Well done tigerlily!
