This was, without doubt, the most expensive and the worst hotel we stayed in during an eight-night tour of Scotland. The room was large and quiet and well-appointed - and so it should be for the money! It was quiet as it was at the end of a corridor. There was a lift for luggage, etc. This hotel is a glorified night-club and is aiming for the younger visitor and certainly not us. There were bouncers on the door and the reception area was so near the large restaurant which featured very loud, continual thumping pop music that you couldn't hear yourself think. We had to check in at the tops of our voices although the receptionist was very patient with us and spent a long time trying to explain an App that we had to download on the mobile in order to be able to park at a reduced rate at a nearby NCP car park. There were no directions to the car park and a long, frustrating time was spent the next day trying to find it and then paying over £35 for an overnight stay as the App was so difficult to use. The evening meal was tolerated and we gave up shouting at eachother to communicate just as if we were in a disco. The food was second-rate for the extortionate price and the service was inefficient. We were threatened by someone on the next table for no reason at all. All in all an uncomfortable experience and we advise that this place is avoided if you are over 25.

This was our 3rd stay in the hotel, this occasion for 2 nights celebrating our engagement. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were greeted by a friendly member of staff at the hotel reception desk, they took our cases and said they would be in our room for us checking in at 3. We had a little while to kill so went out for a walk and then back to the hotel for a drink before check in. We arrived back at roughly 2.30 and it took well over 10 minutes for a staff member to approach us to take our drink order. The bar/restaurant was quiet. It then took a further 15/20 minutes to get out drinks. Staff just didn't appear interested in customers. Our room was lovely, we stayed in a classic double on the first floor ( Room 8), upon arriving in our room we had received a bottle of prosecco and a card congratulating us on our engagement which was a lovely touch. Room was clean and spacious. Bed was very comfy. No complaints of any noise on either night we stayed. Some of the furniture could do with being replaced as it was either badly watermarked or chipping/stained. Mini bar in the room is disgustingly expensive, don't even bother scanning the QR code for pricing. £4 for a bar of chocolate! Our first evening we ate out, but visited the bar before dinner, we sat at the bar and had a lovely new member of staff serve us (it was her first or second week) but she was brilliant. The first morning we opted to have breakfast delivered to our room, which in hindsight seems like a great idea, but by the time we received it, it was only luke warm and a bit disappointing. The second morning we ate downstairs in the restaurant (our waitress was lovely, and couldn't do enough to help us and all the other tables around). Breakfast was beautiful on the 2nd morning. Our second evening we ate in the hotel and whilst the food was lovely, the service was non existent. Our courses came out quickly but no one checked in to make sure food was OK or if we required anymore drinks, etc. Then to top it off you put a 12.5% service charge on and then asked if we would like to pay a tip. The hotel and decor is beautiful, especially down stairs in the bar/restaurant area however the lack of customer service is disappointing considering 1. Reputation 2. Pricing. The whole experience this time around was a bit "all show, no substance"

We have just spent two nights in a deluxe room and can honestly say it’s been the best hotel we have stayed in. Not only was it gorgeously dressed in autumnal colours, it was chic and clean with friendly staff that could t do enough for us. The breakfasts were tasty and hot, the evening atmosphere was spot on. The meal in the restaurant was delicious What more can I say - we wouldn’t stop anywhere else next time I’ve read other reviews about noise etc - we didn’t experience any but we were there during the week!

Stayed here for 2 nights in September 2021 with my partner for a couples getaway to Edinburgh. We wanted to treat ourselves and stay somewhere a bit upmarket and we definitely found what we were looking for. The staff were very accommodating and friendly and the hotel itself is absolutely beautiful! The rooms are huge! The rooms themselves have all of the essentials provided including hair straighteners and a hairdryer. We also had breakfast at the hotel which included hot and cold drinks, which was really good value for money. Additionally, one of the bonuses of staying at this hotel is that they provide discount at the NCP Edinburgh Castle Terrace car park, which saved us so much money as parking is so expensive everywhere in Edinburgh.

Just terrible… Do NOT come to eat at the Tigerlilly Hotel. It's the WORST place in Edinburgh to eat out. We came here on a Saturday night for a special birthday but it all went down like a hot air balloon. The noise was so LOUD that you can't even hear what your saying.... The food came out COLD and still it was dreadful. Still on that day my head was completely SORE after all of that LOUD music blasting in your ear.. I do NOT recommend this place to eat out but it's even worse that I have to say... Mc Donalds is actually BETTER to eat than there…
