“Simply the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Had the pleasure of staying here again this week. I received an Itison voucher for dinner, bed & breakfast as a gift. As the timing of our visit to Edinburgh coincided with my Wife's birthday I took the opportunity to upgrade my booking to a full Georgian suite. On arrival the check in staff were efficient & friendly. We were shown to our suite which was absolutely spotless. The furnishings & fittings are of the highest standard & the bathroom is stunning. Having the conveniance of a remote control living flame gas fire at the bottom of the bed added to the air of luxury. The hotel def. has a cool & funky vibe.

We had pre-booked dinner & were treated to complimentary cocktails at the bar before being seated. The food itself was outstanding with service to match. The weather in Edinburgh was wet & windy, so we decided to stay in the hotel bar & meet our friends there. I think it's fair to say that we all had a great night & were well looked after by the bar staff. I would hate to single out any one member of staff for praise as they were all really good, however Hostess Julls is a definite asset to the hotel.

Of all the hotels we have ever stayed at in the UK & abroad Tigerlily more than any other consistently scores highly in every department. They somehow manage to get everything just right. If you ever find yourself in Edinburgh & require accomodation, then look no further than Tigerlily.....you wont be disappointed.

We stayed in January for one night for hubby's 40th. Can't fault the hotel at all. From our early arrival (room was ready for us), receptionist was very welcoming and we were shown to our room and told how everything worked - nice touch. We had booked a dinner bed and breakfast package and dinner was lovely. Great option to be able to have breakfast delivered to your room too. We has upgraded and was definitely worth it! Can't wait to go back.

I have just returned from a one night stay at Tigerlilly and couldn't recommend it more.
It's very well located - a 5-10 min walk from Waverey station and righ next to all of the shops and loads of bars and restaurants and all of the gorgeous architecture in the city,
The building is beautiful - a nice old facade on the outside and a really good combination of some of the original architectural features and modern design inside.
We stayed in the Black Room which is just lovely - one of the few times we have been away for one night and deided just to stay in the room all night to take advantage of it! The bath is really deep and the shower is a lovely monsoon style one.
We had a lovely meal in the restaurant in the evening - really good quality food; and breakfast the next day which again was lovley, in fact my partner said it was the best fried breakfast he has ever had! Another lovely feature is that we were able to get breakfast in our room at no extra cost - nice touch.
Staff were lovely and very helpful. Drinks at the bar were lovely including the cocktails.
Overall we both wished we had booked another night.

I have stayed at Tigers many times. It's a wonderful place. The rooms are beautifully decorated and are all spacious. The top floor rooms are the best especially the ones at the back of the hotel. The foods amazing, great value, and the restuarant really well designed. There is always a really cosmopolitan atmosphere about this hotel. The staff are so helpful and friendly. This is the kind of place that once you have been then you will keep coming back. It's so different from the big corporate chains. I could stay there for a week and not leave the hotel! Of course it is very central for everything in Edinburgh.

a gorgeous funky stylish hotel, which was both warm and welcoming but modern and different loads of places to relax eat and drinks and the attention to detail in the bedrooms was what makes this place special - e.g. ipods in the room loaded with hundreds of different songs and the beds - wow !! we ate in the restaurant one night and had lovely food and service. breakfast was great, all freshly made and served till 12 - very civilised. during check out though was a bit disappointed to have t go through the bill in detail as items had been duplicated between our bill and our friends. was a bit of a let down at the end of a lovely stay.

Initial booking with Amy and check in was excellent. Fabulous hotel , with great staff , Elegant , stylish,hip , yet cosy, great interior design !! We stayed on a 2 night mini break My husband rarely hears me say wow on entering a hotel room! We had a Luxury double which was really lovely. The attention to detail and the small extras certainly give it a wow factor. The Breakfast choice is excellent and served with style . No queing at a buffet but proper service off a menu - plus you can have breakfast up to 12 noon .....and all day on a Sunday ! Fabulous , at last someone who knows what customers on holiday want! Fruit , /water , ice , a lime (with chopping board and knife) all in the room and part of the turn down service. Food very good , wine very good , staff very good. We dined in the hotel one night and ate out on another. Only gripe was on checking out that had to sort out items that had been charged to both rooms ours and our friends. It was lucky we had checked and had the time to sort it out. The Reception area lets them down a little , would be chaotic with lots of people checking out. However would definetly return whilst in Edinburgh , great location for shopping , found some great little boutiques at the bottom of Princes Street, The Cupboard in William Street is fab and staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel has has a great smoking shack for those who still wish to partake.

Room Tip: Luxury doubles are fab!

A lovely hotel with good service and stylish comfortable rooms. Fairly expensive compared to other accommodation in the area, but we personally felt it was worthwhile.
One complaint would be noise in the hotel. The rooms are structured with two rooms sharing a common door out into the main corridor which slams shut so you are woken every time someone goes in or out of the room next to you. A nice feature if you are travelling in a group or family and have booked both rooms but otherwise an inconvenience.
Overall a great experience and I would recommend going to the bar for cocktails!
