We liked the welcome and all the staff who were friendly and helpful. The room and bed were extremely comfortable, great breakfast and the whole stay was a delight. The hotel is very well placed for getting round Edinburgh. We would highly recommend and would definitely use it again.
Weekend break Edinburgh
A very centrally located hotel with a freindly and helpful staff. The room was of a fair size with all you would expect of a hotel of this standing.
Although the room was finely furnished the room lighting was poor.
Overall Good but a few teething problems still nee
Location. Friendly Staff. The new bar/restaurant area looks good however the only downside is the seating area near the bar soon filled up and even though there were empty tables on the lower floor level there seemed to be a reluctance to give these to guests who just wanted a drink.
The reception area is still going through refurbishment which meant long queues soon began to build up when guests began arriving in numbers which was an inconvenience to be honest. No doubt this will be resolved when the work is completed.
great location, clean, but lacking in staff warmth
Location, cleanliness and the staff who welcomed at door. They have a great manner and seem genuinely want to please guests.
Reception staff need much more warmth, smile more and actually treat people as such. Rooms clean bu quite small for price - felt a little cramped at time.
Clean and comfortable. Good breakfast.
Got bait and switched. Upon checkin was told that breakfast was included with the prepaid reservation. Great! Upon checkout was informed I owed something like £60 for breakfast. Tried to argue my case but had a train to catch and ended up with a "discount" to £40. Extremely shady. Will let my CC company take care of this.
There was no air conditioner in the room. The room I got was in the basement close to a very noisy load and unload area. Eventhough they had better rooms available, they asked me for extra payment in case I wanted a different room.
Location and reception areas were great.
Room was terrible. Really hot. Could not open window and AC not working. Staff unwilling to help.
The whole hotel experience at the George Hotel was completely faultless. The staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming. The rooms were spotless, warm and very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious. The flight was cancelled on our return and had to stay at the George Hotel an extra night, the staff welcomed us back with mulled wine! Excellent stay, thank you.
The hotel kindly acknowledged our anniversary. All the staff were wonderful.
Brilliant location for all the reasons anyone would visit Edinburgh - sites shops reatauramts
enjoyed the comfort and eating at the restaurant
The hotel was in central Edinburgh and close to all the attractions.the room was very spacious
Lack of parking as public parking very expensive.
location, standard of accommodation
bedrooms were very warm even with no heating on. We were unable to open a window due to noise on street. This was a minor complaint.
I booked a room at The George Hotel as a special birthday treat for my husband. I wanted somewhere right in the city and this was the perfect location, we even managed to find a parking space! The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and the bed was possibly the most comfortable I have ever stayed in!
very enjoyable stay in a superb hotel, excellent meals, very helpful staff, nothing too much trouble to make our stay memorable
the cooked breakfast wasn't hot enough
From the minute I walked into the hotel I felt very welcomed. The staff were attentive and perfectly freindly and professional. I travel alot internationally and truthfully feel that this was one of the best hotel experiences I've had in my life. Being that I do travel alot, it means the world when you can sleep peacefully in extreme comfort. From arrival to departure the George was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend it and will return there when in Edinburgh. A gentleman named " Willy" was a gem, very helpful. Thank You.
