We met a very dear friend and her partner here for dinner. Dining room is located on the second floor of this old hotel on Princes st. menu had a good selection,the calamari starter was to die for. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Good selection of wines at very reAsonable prices. Service was very good and staff attentive. A very enjoyable evening in all.

Friendly staff, clean rooms, great location!!! Super breakfasts, comfy beds & pillows, walking distance for pretty much everything!!! Close to Edinburgh Tram, Waverly Train Station, City buses!!! I can't say enough about this hotel! This was our 2nd stay there & would stay again. Also the prices are reasonable.

I stayed here just one night while up in Edinburgh on business. My business colleague and I both wanted to stay longer and we both loved this hotel.

We each had a room on the front and oh to wake up to see the Scott Monument bathed in sunshine was glorious. My room was on the fourth floor and I left the window open all the time as I loved the sound of bagpipes playing and the wonderful views.

My room was plenty large enough with a comfortable bed, big fluffy white towels and a lovely bathroom - there was simply nothing to fault.

There was tea and coffee making facilities with little Scottish shortbread biscuits and very nice toiletries, a really decent hair dryer and a good dressing table with a mirror.

The views from the lounge were wonderful across Princes St Gardens and the breakfast was fabulous too with plenty of space.

The only slight problem was that reception is on the first floor with no lift so cases have to be humped up some quite steep stairs. The staff on reception were extremely friendly and helpful.
Imagine in today's world having a large actual key with a huge key ring that has to be handed in when you go out !!

Old traditional values of comfort.
I would definitely stay here again (hopefully someone would carry my case up!) and loved the hop-on-hop-off bus tour that starts exactly opposite on Waverley Bridge.

Highly recommended and will be looking for the next business trip to the fabulous city of Edinburgh. Perfect location, room and service.

Thank you Old Waverley Hotel !

Room tip: High up Princes St view rooms are wonderful !

Located right on Princess street and walking distance to most of what there is to see. Staff was great and rooms were comfortable. Just head out to eat. There are to many great places to eat here to have meals in the hotel. Especially breakfast.
