Myself and my partner stayed in Tigerlily on the 5th September for one night, and we are seriously sad that it was only one night! We actually stayed three nights in Edinburgh and booked Tigerlily via Secret Escapes, but by the time we came to book only one night was available to book at Tigerlily; this left us to experience other 'luxurious' hotels in Edinburgh, and I tell you what, don't even bother with the big guns, Tigerlily beats them on every level.
As we approached the hotel we were greeted by a member of staff, who immediately welcomed us on suggestion that we were staying in the hotel and took us to the reception. At reception we were greeted by friendly staff, who informed us that we could borrow DVDs at our leisure (it's the small touches!). A porter took us up to our room and showed us around the entirety of the room and where we could find everything that we needed, I have never felt so at home in a hotel!
The design of the hotel is unlike anything else, it is so new and fresh; personal touches in a small boutique hotel. The small touches in this hotel make all the difference (we stayed in a luxury double room?) such as the GHD straighteners, Babyliss hairdryer and White Company cosmetics! The movable TV was another favourite. I feel like I had been neglected in all other hotels! The bed was very comfortable also, just perfect for our needs. We went out to explore the city and when we returned the turn down service had been in, amazing staff, you wouldn't have known they had been in, all of our personal items laid in exactly the place that they had been in before! The shag pile rugs on the floor were also a lovely touch, no cold feet that night!
After settling in we then went to the bar for a few drinks, the service again, amazing and cocktails were an amazingly reasonably price.
After borrowing a DVD we settled in for a good night's sleep. In the morning we awoke to a rainfall shower and a breakfast (as part of our room package). We both had a full Scottish breakfast, which was very tasty. The service and the design of the restaurant were unlike any other, so modern but also so welcoming.
We checked out at 10am, but upon checkout were offered the opportunity to leave our bags with the hotel until later, which we would have welcomed with open arms if we had not made prior plans.
I really cannot stress the true experience provided by this hotel! The service was amazing, and completely blew the Caledonian out of the water. All guests were treated equally rather than feeling ostracized (The Caledonian).
We enjoyed our stay so much that we intend to return in late January for our anniversary & this time shall also visit Lulu's underneath!
We really could not have asked for any more on our visit to Edinburgh, thankyou.
