nothing It is a very old Hotel .It needs to be renovated urgently .The toilet flush is broken , noisy AC , non hot water avaliablility ( it was for a limited time but not expected from a five star Hotel ) . The staff talk without looking at your face with an unfriendly manner . The pool is again too old and need to be renewed so that the price paid to the Hotel is too much in comparison what you get .
The friendly and welcoming attitude of the staff, in particular the concierge. The have maintained the standard of the hotel since changing to a Hilton. It was well located for walking to Murrayfield for rugby.
Everything was great except bed was very uncomfortable
Absolutely everything. I had always wanted to stay at the hotel and t lived up to all of my expectations The only thing I would change would have been to have a bigger bed in our room. Kingsize just wasn't big enough!!
The location of the hotel was good Hilton are using there brand to sell below standard rooms. I would never stay here again
Service and attention to detail Nothing to report
The grandeur, the comfort, the facilities, the location, the staff. The leisure complex is a little tired, but pleasant nonetheless!
excellent staff shame about the hotel. qeues for brakefast,electrcity cutting out in the room due to faulty wiring. not a five star as far as i could see gets the rating on facilitys rather than class,
Good reception we arrived early room ready and all very efficient similarly check out very efficient Breakfast, we were put in a cold room, toast took an age to produce , one poor machine and when we left the queue was 25 yards long to get in for breakfast
Delightful! We hope to return to Edinburgh one day, and when we do, we will stay at the Caledonian. Couldja make it stop raining?
The room was quiet and had a lovely view of Edinburgh. The staff were very helpful and the standard of cleanliness excellent. The leisure facilities were of a high standard also. The price of breakfast seemed high even for the standard of hotel.
Very pleasant, efficient staff. A sense of 'grandness'! Breakfast seemed a little on the expensive side.
friendliness and helpfulness of staff spa facilities
Excellent hotel & facilities. Modern, spacious interior. Complementary wifi, pool, + gym. Very helpful staff. Spa and breakfast are typically not included, but upgrade is possible for 90 GBP per day for 2 people. This includes access to the club lounge, the spa, unlimited drinks and snacks from 5:30-7:30pm, and breakfast in the lounge in the morning. If you wanted a greater selection for the breakfast, you could pay 5 GBP more per person for the breakfast at the One Square restaurant downstairs which includes a quite large selection of hot options and a large continental breakfast. All in all, the food and drinks were amazing. The spa was great - there is a heated hydropool and then multiple types of rooms around it: hammam, rock sauna, aromatherapy room, biosauna, etc. The location is a little further from the city center than I initially anticipated, but it wasn't a huge problem. It was about a 15-20 minute walk to the Edinburgh Castle and 20-30 if walking at a brisk pace to George St, Princes St, etc. where all the shops are. There isn't much to do around the hotel itself, particularly at night - it seems like a business neighborhood + convention center next door.
The room was excellent. The staff were vert welcoming. Although we arrived at 12pm and our checkin wasnt till 3pm they still allowed us into our room. We enjoyed everything about it.
The quality of the facilities & the standard of the presentation together with friendly staff. First class food and service in relaxed well-appointed surroundings.
Great central hotel with fabulous luxury rooms and bathrooms Charges for movies/music very expensive
peace and quiet
Our room was totally amazing and thoroughly enjoyed the view too. I found the website mislead me to believe the spa included the Infinity pool/spa, only to find out this was an extra £30 p/p on top, which I found totally disappointing!
An amazing hotel, all staff extremely frendly and professional
the bed was comfortable,and easy access to city centre the bedroom was not what we expected,the decor needed maintained again in the bathroom,and the food was not to standard as we ordered and the food was served raw
As a guest being asked to pay extra for the basic spa facilities
the staff were lovely booked double executive room, but think we got a budget room double bed two different height mattresses. asked them to sort it, they didnt. bathroom poor room smaller than stated in description
Zoltan at reception was a star. The restaurant and bar team were efficient and friendly. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Looking forward to our next visit
very very good had all we required Evert up its standard
The One restaurant has excellent and unusual food servewd by impecably trained servers.
Everything about this hotel is fantastic, and consistently so. The service in particular is always outstanding.
Beautiful historic hotel in the perfect location. The staff could not have done more to be helpful. The room was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The bathroom was spectacular. The light level in the room was so subdued that it was difficult to see inside your suitcase. Other than that no complaints at all.
The Number One was a tremendous experience. The hotel and restaurant staff could not have been better during our stay. I would simply say keep it up!
The restaurant "Number one": excellent staff, good food. The location of the hotel and the view on the old city. Very noisy hotel, not enough privacy: train station beneath the hotel, doors being smashed all day, staff knocking on doors to check on the room too often. The room had not been refurbished in a very long time. The bed was not particularly confortable. Much too expensive for the service provided and quality of the rooms.
Hotel staff are very attentive and quality of the meals excellent.
Lovely room, thoughtfully decorated, wonderful service.
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.
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!
enjoyed the comfort and eating at the restaurant
almost everything the cooked breakfast wasn't hot enough
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.
very enjoyable stay in a superb hotel, excellent meals, very helpful staff, nothing too much trouble to make our stay memorable
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.
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, 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.
Brilliant location for all the reasons anyone would visit Edinburgh - sites shops reatauramts
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.
The hotel kindly acknowledged our anniversary. All the staff were wonderful.
Excellent room. Sauna, steam room & pool facilities very good.
Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! Lighting was rather dim & furniture was slightly dusty.
The rooms were clean and comfortable and the spa was very relaxing.
The location of the hotel is perfect to enjoy Edimburgh,very clean hotel and the staff was very good, also the cocktails are well worth a try! It was a very good stay, if anything the hotel should install doubble glazing or double windows, also having to queue for breakfast in a 4 star hotel is not really good so make the most of the breakfast in your room for an extra £2.50, that was perfect and on time! no queue!
Central Location - 1 min from bus & train station, shopping centre, pubs & restaurants, Spa Facilities and Staff were also excellent
Staff were wonderfully helpful. The fitness room was very well-appointed. There was no chair (except for the desk chair) in the room, and the restaurant could use some improvement in quality.
the pool and breakfast in bed friendly staff lack off parking for near hotel access also i bumpd the back of my car parking outside as you have to reverse park on a busy road!
the hotel was central comfortable good facilities and hotel staff v.ery helpful and courteous
Beautiful, brand new hotel. Our city double room was lovely and fairly spacious. Staff were lovely, very pleasant and helpful. None really, other than we didn't receive our complimentary newspaper, but we weren't bothered enough about it to enquire.
Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.
The Howard was staffed by friendly, helpful and knowledgable staff. We didn't dine but breakfast was delicious and we will be back to sample the afternoon tea!
I felt very comfortable from the first time. It was like I was staying in a house and not in a hotel. Big room, mighty lighting, good service. Tasteful breakfast but very small portions. Order more than 3 dishes!
It was a wonderful hotel. The staff was great, the service was excellent.the location was wonderful.
The Howard has an amzing "butler" system where a number of butlers attend to your every need. They are the most accommodating small hotel that we have ever stayed in. It is like being in an upper class private British home with elegant surroundings and service to match. Absolutely nothing.
personal service, beautiful room, excellent breakfast menu, attention to detail.
Beautiful building, large room, excellent staff, fine food no problems
Greeting very good. Overall impression, beautiful decor rooms and very helpful staff, intimate home from home feeling. Breahfast choice and quality very good, I appreciate it was cooked to order but took a little longer than to arrive than we hoped. We had a train to catch and had allowed one hour for breakfast and had to rush our food.
Excellent service and very responsive and warm.
It takes an enormous effort to make hospitality appear this seamless. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much effort, yet everything was done with a discretion that made our stay a truly pleasurable experience. Leaving.
The service was beyond my expectations, I loved my stay in the Howard The fact I had to leave
Excellent facilities, faultless service. Outstanding.
It was very good. Affordable and reasonable luxury, perfect location for shopping and edinburgh landmarks exploration. We hardly used public transport during our stay. Excellent staff. Would surely stay again.
Luxury hotel, perfect stay.
Superb staff who did everything they could to help us enjoy our stay, lovely room, quiet location and only a 5 minute walk to Princes Street. Parking is a wee bit limited, but again the staff helped out and the problem disappeared. No issues at all.
Quiet, spacious, comfortable No hotwater on evening or following morning,so had to have tepid shower and bath. Only glass wall between our room and hall so could be seen going between bedroom and bathroom from outside!!! cleaner arrived 2 hours before checkout to deliver equipment to clean room,visible through glass wall.
The cosiness of the room was really nice yet it had all mod cons; also private access to our own walled garden! The shower was very nice indeed as was the bath. Both made all the better by the soap. On a further note, the tea and coffee making facilities were exceptional! :) and we very much approved of the fruit in the fridge.
level of amenities and comfort, also excellent staff
Size of apartment, features
Very Personal touch. Very clean. Nicely stocked kitchen. Graham is an extremely helpful person. None
The staff was extremely accommodating, and the suite was beautiful, the bathroom huge.
out of this world- service, comfort and a real treat
The suite was a very good size, having breakfast served in the room was an added bonus and the jacuzzi bath an unexpected treat. Recommended.
The staff and service were superb. The in-suite facilities were great. The huge spa bath was very welcome after a long day. The view from my top floor room was amazing - and the food was absolutely first class. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to others, and I will stay here again without doubt. The hotel is quirky. It was previously time share apartments, and some of the decor in the communal areas is in need of updating.
warm freindly . great service. large rooms . clean .great vaule at price booked at.
It felt very private The breakfast was not brilliant and the lift was broken during our stay and unfortunately we were on the top floor
Ideal location for the city and the ambiance of the hotel. Breakfast service was very good sets the day of to a relaxing start 4th stay at the Edinburg Residence and standards are dropping. At checking in handed a key and left to find our own room in the bowels of the hotel then faced with a trek back up to reception then back down to car park to collect luggage then back again, Toilet seat falling off, wall paper loose and loose floor tiles. Not what you expect in a 5 star residence
Relaxed atmosphere in sumptuous surroundings. Not applicable
Really friendly welcoming staff. Room was beautiful. Huge bedroom with huge sitting room. Very elegant. White toiletries and big high quality towels. Excellent cooked breakfast brought to the room. It was like staying in a country house. Luxury in the best sense
The staff were friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. My Classic Suite was beautiful - exceptionally comfortable, spacious and clean. The bathroom was especially good with its huge kidney-shaped bathtub! I would highly recommend the Edinburgh Residence and hope to stay there again.
Very nice hotel, excellent location, very comfortable and spacious room, very well priced Was a bit of a trip up and down corridors and stairs with loaded bags no lift
We were shown to a double although had booked a twin, but from that point staff were helpful and efficient. Good breakfast. Excellent location with car parking. The decor was very dark, too dark for my liking. Furniture and carpet showed wear and tear.
The deluxe bedroom was spacious and well presented. The hotel was located very close to the city centre which was convenient yet still quiet. The staff were not readily available for guests at reception or breakfast.
The staff were lovely, and the hotel was in a great location and extremely cosy. We were dissapointed with the breakfast on offer. We woud of liked the choice of a cooked breakfast.
large comfortable bedrooms,good location,excellent food,pleasent and helpful staff.
Beautiful room, very comfortable and with all appliances that I could possibly need The receptionists were useless...unable to give me directions or bus numbers from the airport to the hotel. They were unable to answer my basic questions about the surrounding area. There were very loud and noisy restoration works in the dining room during our breakfast. We were not warned about this and really tarnished our image of the hotel as their work was prioritised over the guests comfort.
Location The hotel was like a rabbit warren. The telephone in the room did not work and I had to get dressed three times to go down to reception and got lost twice on the way. The bath flooded!! The tv in the bathroom did not work.
I loved my room and the actual hotel building was old and lovely.
I really like how different the hotel was to most...updated and very sharp. Nothing...it was really nice.
good location of hotel
Quiet location and near to the city centre
the friendliness and helpfulness of staff and the proximity of hotel to shops and bus stops I felt that the hallways on the way to the rooms were a bit shabby looking
comfort and proximity to the highlights of the city Had stayed there on previous occasions
location and staff air conditioning-room was too hot at night.
Hotelroom Temperature in bar very cold, barkeeper not very friendly (I have no time to make tea)
Hotel and staff were excellent and perfect location, will stay there again.
Relaxing time spent with a friend. Enjoyed Indian head massage although would have preferred it without a top on rather than my arms and shoulders being massaged over my clothes! The breakfast on Saturday was cold...the sausages & bacon were undercooked!
Site, staff, facilities and room No
The location was perfect, the staff very helpful and the rooms were good size and perfectly clean.... I would definately stay at this hotel again
Booked valentine dinner online, yet when we went down for dinner 1 hour before dinner was supposed to be finished we were told that we were not allowed in. The guy in the resturant was very unhelpful talking over everything I said to him.
Staff were very helpful. Rooms too hot but they did bring a fan on request which helped a little.
Convenience of location for central Edinburgh
The room was spacious and the view amazing. The room service was very good . Cafe Rouge, where the breakfast is served, was amazing but the breakfast poor.
Comfortable, clean hotel with simple facilities. Staff friendly and helpful. No frills.
Every thing is just excellent! We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. We will highly recommend to our friends.
Breakfast at Ricks across the road The fact that breakfast was across the road
Staff very friendly and helpfull no
location was perfect, easy to get to all the attractions on foot, train station and buses 10 min walk. Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. sheets and blankets - I missed my Duvet
The hotel was central, clean and very good value. I will be visiting the hotel again.
Breakfast was excellent Only one thin blanket on bed Also no information available on bus routes from hotel reception
The staff were pleasant and very helpful. I also wanted to stay an extra day than I originally booked and the hotel was able to accommodate me.
Location Room sizes very small and not suited for two people
the rooms were elegant, well designed, functional and comfortable. also on the back of the hotel v quiet. the staff were very helpful. I would definitely come back to the Hudson. Pop music in the bar at breakfast time and when I said that I was leaving because of it, nobody offer to turn it down or off. I did not eat breakfast and therefore did not spend 10 pounds in the hotel.
The staff was very friendly. The rooms were clean and the location was very good. The showers didn't have doors or curtains so the water always got everywhere
We had a problem and had to leave early. Please be aware that the young lady on reception on Sunday am was excellent.
stylish room, friendly staff, convenient location hotel very noisy at night due to nightclub downstairs
Comfortable and walking distance to attractions. Helpful front desk lady. Clean room. Flatscreen tv and extra speaker in bathroom was a delightful bonus. Shower was difficult to use as there was no shower curtain and water sprayed everywhere in bathroom. Hotel restaurant was poorly staffed at breakfast.
Good location for central edinburgh, excellent service from friendly staff The bar was full in the early evening due to Christmas parties-some service such as a reserved area could have been made available for hotel residents.
We liked our room, the bed was comfortable and the room temperature was perfect. The service at reception was excellent, with very friendly staff. the location is perfect for a city break in Edinburgh and overall was worth the money. There was a cleaning problem at the hotel which meant unfortunately a terrible stench was very evident outside the gents toilet in the reception area, which you had to pass to get to the ladies. The hotel did apologise. Also, someone else was able to charge drinks at the bar to our room. We were given the bill on departure, but the member of staff on reception was quick to accept that it had not been us and tore up the bill. They had not obtained a signature for the bar bill. We had paid for all our extras - food and drinks - in cash at the time of purchase. Hotels must get signatures for all extras to avoid this sort of problem. Despite the comfort of the bedroom, the room was a little dark.
very central for city, modern ,,comfortable beds and a mini bar the shower was fantastic
Fantastic cooked breakfast. Nice decor in room. Great location. Nothing
The Hotel room is quite good, and also the location. quite central Staff could be a little bit more professional
We were looked after very well by the staff and the hotel was central for all amenities.
Quality environment and relaxing atmosphere
The clean and stylish appearance of the decor and the pleasant staff and enjoyable breakfast room Breakfast cold table should be chilled in my opinion, especially the meats, cheese , yogurt and fruit. Room TV menu was not too great.
Huge bedroom with a great view of the church at Stockbridge. The location was excellent and I also loved the main course we had in the restaurant on the Friday night - 2 courses £14 per person - Exceptional value for money. Service could be improved. Restaurant is open to the public and hotel guests don't get priority. In the morning, I had to ask for a number of things during breakfast.
The room was a good size and with lovely views of the city and the sea in the distance. The web site is over generous in its praise of design features. The bathroom was only average in all respects and the hospitality tray poor for a hotel in this price bracket.
Helpful staff - nothing too much trouble. Car park.
Relaxing envirnoment in the city, staff were extremely helpful! Will stay again. Highly recommended!
A smart and comfortable hotel in a good location close to the city centre. The breakfast was first class.
Friendly and efficient staff,very comfortable room and a first class breakfast Even with my best nit picking hat on could iI find any fault with the Bonham,a treat to stay there
Staff friendly;room decor very nice; centrally situated in a quiet area Too hot!! (Rooms & corridors) Extremely difficult to get in & out of bath
Fantastic service. Warm, friendly staff. Great breakfast. Perfectly located for a tour of Edinburgh. Excellent. Not a thing. Great hotel.
The hotel is very convienient for all local attractions,it was clean and warm and a very good price, rooms were decorated in a modern style . the doors in hotel are heavy fire doors and if not held until closed they slammed every time someone went through one. Our room was at basement level and had drainage problems in shower and water only drained slowly.
a lovely modern guest house in a great location, our room was spotlessly clean and very warm. The only thing that would improve the stay was that Sunday breakfast could have been a just little bit later say between 9 and 9.30am
A pleasant stay at the hotel. The decoration is very modern and update.The Bathroom in particular has a nice bath
great location, excellent hotel staff, really big and comfortable room, good breakfast
The building is lovely and very nicely decorated. The room was small but very comfortable with better than average appliances and fantastic water pressure in the shower! Breakfast was good with a large menu. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room was a little too warm, but the radiator could be adjusted so it wasn't a huge problem. The wood flooring, although nice looking, was noisy especially when other guests were moving around very early in the morning.
Excellent location, really simple but very modern interior. Breakfast was especially nice as everything was cooked fresh. Non that spring to mind
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The food was very good. The room was attractive and comfortable. No bad points
Location is very convenient
very friendly owners, excellent menu in the evening for a very good price (well only apple or orange juice as a drink) as well as the scottish breakfast. Location Noisy fitnesscentre in the early hours on friday in the back of room 12
standard of finish in the decor.....luxury of the room and the price for what you got it was quite cold in the room because the windows were not double glazed, i think because it is a listed building though...
Outstanding decor and superb service
fantastic attention to my needs (but I was very off season) no
Room was extremely comfortable-staff (from top to bottom) was amazing and couldn't have been more accommodating, breakfast was perfect, love the L'Occitane bathroom products & well stocked Nespresso bar in every room....a truly delightful stay for one week over Christmas. Walking up to the 3rd floor :( but at least we worked off some of the calories we ate! Hated to leave!
The location of the hotel, the style of the hotel, the helpfulness of the staff, the breakfast. The room was a bit too small. Also, I'm quite tall and the bed was too small for me.
All staff were absolutely excellent. The room was expensively fitted with unusually good quality furnishings even if a little quirky. The bathroom was equipped with all mod cons, jaccuzzi bath, shower with body sprays etc. Overall a very enjoyable place to stay My room was booked as an Executive Single where I expected to have a desk for work. As it turned out, although there was plenty of space to rest the computer etc. there was no seating provision.
room was small , had nowhere to sit and the bed appeared to be 3/4 size.
Friendly and helpful staff Stairs to top floor
The room was beautiful, and huge,...and we were upgraded. excellent breakfast too. n/a
being up graded
Nicely decorated hotel with very friendly staff and good facilities. Free WIFI is great as well.
