Location was awesome!! Directly across from the train and minutes from the Royal Mile! The rooms were very clean and modern. The a/c was not working and it was warm during the day. But the nights were nice.
Convenient to attractions Uncertain where to park to unload. Could use some signage.
Location and friendliness of staff Insufficient storage for clothes. Bathroom door would not remain open to air out after a shower. Heating/Cooling unit did not work. TV operation was tied to placing key card in slot, remote did not turn on unit--inconvenient. More focused on style.
Common areas were too warm, but the hotel was awesome otherwise.
The location was fantastic. We arrived by train and the hotel was right across the street from Waverly Station. Within easy walking distance of the Royal Mile. The hotel was new and everything seemed to be very efficient. Staff was very friendly. Not much.
Great location. Clean . Comfortable bed. Noisy downtown location.
The views of Edinburgh
view of castle from hieghts restaurant, location of hotel No fridge in room no radio having to pay for breakfast having to pay for internet access lifts very poor (not updated since previous college use) no air conditioning control windows not double glazed - noise, draughts
Convenience of location As I had a front room over a weekend, the noise from the pubs in Grassmarket was a bit much.
the bathroom was really dark with only lights over the wash basin. a large water stain on the ceiling was not very attractive!
It has a great location, with lovely views of the castle and lots of food and bars nearby.
Room very nice. cleanliness of room excellent. Staff friendly and helpful.Close to shops and visitor attractions.
Lovely comfortable hotel with great views close to everything
Ideal city location for theatre, dinining and shopping.
Conveniently located in the Grassmarket district of Edinburgh within a very easy walk of several excellent restaurants and pubs, this hotel has an excellent view of the Old Town and the castle, which is only a few minutes away by foot. The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable, and the bar staff provided ice for no extra charge.
The view of Edinburgh castle was out of this world.
Rapid sorting out/ upgrade when the door lock to out room failed The fact thaty the door lock failed
At arrival we were met in the parking lot by a very friendly man tha helped us with our luggage. The staff at the receptiondesk was very nice. The room was exellent. In the bathroom we were delighted to see a rubber duckling on top of the towels across the bath! It's the little things that count!
The upgraded room was appreciated we will stay here again. Did not have breakfast - thought that £16.50 was expensive
Large, confortable rooms. Located within walking distance to all city attractions Noice from neighbouring pubs at night/early morning.
Central location, valet parking
Old world charm meets modern amenities- you can't go wrong with this hotel right on the royal mike in Edinburgh. Excellent staff, well maintained rooms, and full service. Health club has good assortment of machines and free weights. It's bloody cloudy in Scotland- spent an entire week and didn't see the sun once.
Great location, superb interior design of the room. Very modern style In-hotel gym was temporarely out of service bu the hotel offered a free entry at a partner gym
Good car parking. Close to city center. Great breakfast. Frendley staff
Breakfast was amazing! Staff were very helpful and hospitality was good The fridges were dirty and the carpets could do with new ones
the proximity to the main Edinburgh attractions, parking availability, supply of extra pillows, big rooms.
Easy to drive to and park my car. Ideal city centre location. Exclusive hotel for a rugby supporter's weekend.
Room was very comfortable. There was lots of choice for breakfast. The hotel location was very good for castle and other attractions. We were near lots of restaurants.
good facility. hospitallity of staffs. and location. somehow internet is not working properly good in both case of WIFI nor Wired connection.
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.
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
Everything about this hotel is fantastic, and consistently so. The service in particular is always outstanding.
Hotel staff are very attentive and quality of the meals excellent.
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
Lovely room, thoughtfully decorated, wonderful service.
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 One restaurant has excellent and unusual food servewd by impecably trained servers.
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 design of the hotel was really modern but still comfortable. When we arrived I was not expecting to have £100 per night deducted from my bank account, especially since we had already paid for it in full. Fine if you have a credit card as you dont notice the money leaving your a/c (its refunded when you check out) but if you dont have a credit card (I dont) then they ask for a debit card which means that you are money short in your account. If this had been mentioned prior to booking then maybe I would have reconsidered staying there. Its ok if they had just taken the card details but to acutally take the money was unexpected and quite unfair to say that we had already paid for the room etc. There was no warning of this and it was lucky that I had plenty of funds in the account!
Central location, especially for the Tatoo Hardest bed we have seen on this month long trip. Inadequate luggage racks or space for clothing storage. It would be ok for an over nighter but not for someone on a long trip. Out of 6 hotels we have stayed in so far on this trip, your was the only one without a bath tub.
The room was excellent , staff were extremely helpful and polite .
Attention to detail, throughout the hotel
the hotel is stunning, very unique, modern and a great place to chill out after being round the shops in edinburgh
Fresh looking hotel Tv did not work despite changing rooms. No fresh black pepper or brown sauce available at breakfast. Waiter unable to confirm the Scottish Breakfast ingredients. Unable to access restaurant from lift as doors locked.
beautiful design, great location, friendly and helpful staff
The comfortable rooms and central location and choice to stay in the Hotel or not.
Very friendly and efficient staff. Luxurious contemporary feel / look. Nice breakfast. Upgrade unexpected, but very much appreciated - nice touch. Difficult to get room wamer with controls. was not freezing cold but my wife would have preferred it warmer. Couldn't seem to watch different channels on the different TV's at the same time, but this may not have been possible anyway!
was very noisy, did not receive free paper that we were offered.. Design was nice but that should not qualify for a 5 stars, was 3/4..
Good locatioin, friendly staff, breakfast excellent, room comfortable Very small car park
We love the beds and the huge wide screen TV! It was a little far from Waverley station, had to climb up and down a hill to get to the hotel!
Hotel is better than i expect, warmer, clener, and quiet Breakfast is quit expensive, compering what you get.
Very central to Edinburgh, very nice pubs nearby and easy walk to all of the tourist sections of the town. Very helpful staff and very nice breakfast.
The hotel was modernly decorated and the rooms were of excellent quality and the food was of constant high standard
Helpful staff Modern decor and beautiful view of the castle Noisy guests sitting in the lounge area on 4th floor just outside our bedroom.
Helpful staff, clean rooms, good location
They had parking, toiletries were good the fridge was only a cooler and it would have been nice to have a proper cold fridge. Breakfast quite expensive.
Friendly staff. Very well appointed rooms
The location of the hotel is fantastic. Everything one needs to see in Edinburgh is within walking distance. Our room was spacious and towards the back of the building, so there was no noise coming from Grassmarket at all although we stayed there for the weekend.
Location and reception areas were great. Room was terrible. Really hot. Could not open window and AC not working. Staff unwilling to help.
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.
enjoyed the comfort and eating at the restaurant
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!
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.
very enjoyable stay in a superb hotel, excellent meals, very helpful staff, nothing too much trouble to make our stay memorable
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.
Brilliant location for all the reasons anyone would visit Edinburgh - sites shops reatauramts
The hotel kindly acknowledged our anniversary. All the staff were wonderful.
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.
Central Location - 1 min from bus & train station, shopping centre, pubs & restaurants, Spa Facilities and Staff were also excellent
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!
Excellent room. Sauna, steam room & pool facilities very good.
The rooms were clean and comfortable and the spa was very relaxing.
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!
Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! Lighting was rather dim & furniture was slightly dusty.
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.
Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.
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.
Location and staff are excellent
Location in the heart of Edinborough. Booked 6 months prior to stay. Realized the next day, that I had booked a room for Saturday night, when I would be in Edinburgh only for Friday night. Was unable to switch nights even though it had been less than 12 hours from the time that the reservation was made, and the reservation was six months in the future. Had to reserve a second night. Rooms were clean with a modern open concept layout. Tried a bit too hard to be hip, no trash can in the room itself only a 1 gallon sized bin in the bathroom and no tub in the bath.
I chose this hotel because it was centrally located, easy to walk to from the train station, and a good price. It was exactly as advertised - no more, no less. If you are just looking for a place to lay your head at night while exploring Edinburgh, IBIS is a good choice. The staff were friendly and efficient, the room and bathroom was clean, and check-in/out was simple and direct. Overall I would stay here again. In over 20 years of travel, every hotel except one has fallen short on pillows. Doesn't matter where, they are universally flat and usually require 3 or so to be good for me - I'm a side sleeper who likes fluffy firm pillows.
Central location for shops and restaurants Noise from street - not really fault of hotel. Very drafty windows - needs double glazing/draft excluders
Although this was a brief trip the standard of room, staff and facilities were excellent. Room was a bit noisy from traffic outside
Exellent location Parking was my only issue and i thought the bar prices were expensive for the quality of the drinks but there are better bars within walking distance so not a major issue.
Price of room and friendly staff 1st room was noisy
Location of hotel was excellent Waited 30 minutes on luggage arriving and had to return to reception, who explained they didn't know where it was to go as they had forgotten to take room number. Also the bathroom didn't appeared to have been freshly cleaned prior to our arrival.
room was very clean
Location was great. Restaurant has a great breakfast buffet. Staff was accommodating. Pool and spa area was nice. Thought the spa men's room can be tidied up and cleaned better.
Excellent location right by Edinburgh Waverley and the Royal Mile. Staff were courteous and attentive. We booked a twin (I was staying with my brother), but the booking was registered as a double (through kayak/booking.com), but they sorted it quickly and efficiently. Hotel rooms are quite warm and air con is ineffective.
The staff at the reception and in the bar were very friendly and informative and the hotel is in a great location. Everything seemed tired and needed updating. The AC in the room was broken. There was no iron in the room, which is something I have never heard of in a 4* hotel. The bathroom door would open onto the toilet. There was no conditioner in the room. The towels felt and looked very well used & we encounter a very rude waitress while having breakfast on Sunday. Also, a man was assaulting a woman in the reception area and it took hotel guests to break it up before the staff did.
location housekeeping poor. On both nights of my stay i had to request towels for the room, on 2nd day there were no towels at all.
close to train station and night life too expensive, not very clean, nothing extra (e.g. bathrobes, slippers etc)
Location was excellent. Prices were reasonable My room was small and stuffy. I'm not going to complain about lack of A/C as this was in Edinburgh, but my tiny room had no circulation and was warmer than the ambient temperature. I found it difficult to sleep at night until I requested and received a fan. Unfortunately, the first night after getting the fan some idiot set off the fire alarm at 0300 and I had to get up at 0500.
Excellent value with the ideal location for all the sights and amenities Not being able to open an account for the restaurant or bar
The hotel was excellently situated was very clean and furnishings were of a very high standard. The facilities in the room included a microwave and kitchen type sink which was very handy. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The parking was difficult and you had to pay a meter but spaces were very limited.
It was central, pleasant quite spacious and comfortable. Room faced a wall, No drawer space, bathroom was badly laid out with no ventilation. There was no bar
My wife and I got married in Edinburgh, and we stayed at the Fraser Suites. It's in an excellent location, just a few steps from the Royal Mile and a 10 minute walk from Waverly railway station. We had flowers delivered to the hotel while we took the train up from London; we called in advance the night before and the staff had no difficulties with dealing with the flowers; they were waiting in our room when we arrived. We booked a junior suite, which was nice; it has a living room with a little wet bar, and a bedroom with en suite. The room had tall ceilings, nice finishes in the bathroom, huge windows to let in lots of light; we really had the impression of being at a top-end hotel. Staff were professional and friendly. No hitches in checking in or out or with housekeeping. We wish we could have stayed longer! As nice a time as we had at this hotel, we did have two minor complaints: once, there was some mould in the tile grout in the tub surround and the caulk joint between the surround and the tub itself, which was a blemish on an otherwise great room. A somewhat bigger problem was that it was windy (hotel can't do anything about that, of course), and this is an older building with older windows; the windows rattled pretty badly at night, and I'm a light sleeper, so this kept me up. Had we stayed longer, I might have raised the issue with the front desk, and it might have been possible to fix the problem by just sticking a coin in the window frame, but it did spoil the experience somewhat.
staff all very helpful and polite nothing
This is the 2nd time I have stayed at Fraser Suites. I love the location right off the Royal Mile and right above Princes Street. Easy access to everything. The bed was a bit firm and aggravated my sciatica. And the tub was higher than normal or I am short!!!
The rooms are well decorated; the hotel is in a great location - really excellent; the shuttle bus is useful. We were moved room twice in a five night stay. The first move was due to the sofa-bed in the studio dulexe not working. We were then upgraded to a one-bedroom apartment. This room did not have proper bathroom facilities and the bathroom flooded while the shower was in use. This resulted in a nightmarish experience - including three plumbers at the door within five minutes - clearly an ongoing situation. The room being flooded was not reported to hotel management until I complained to staff a third time. We also did not receive toiletries on a daily basis (had to ring reception to request them); did not receive an adequate number of towels; admired the charming cobwebs across the ceiling; had to request the sofa-bed to be made up several times; noted a complete lack of communication between staff and so forth.
I was disappointed that the room wasn't ready on time, it was 30 mins late. I'm pleased I didn't pay full price for the room, I still payed enough but if I had paid full price I would have been very annoyed
The hotels staff and luxurious rooms.
The shower Noise from the neighboring business disturbed us all night. Room was in the "daylight" basement; small and closed in. Staff was condescending.
The location of the Suites couldn't have been better. Just off the Royal Mile it was central to everything. I would have liked more frequent maid service
excellent location and comfortable space the hotel offered what i needed tho if you want room service there is not enough room for an table
The friendly/helpful approach displayed by all concerned..Next time there is no choice Macdonald without fail - well done
Very clean & comfortable hotel. Friendly & efficient staff Location was a little further out than originally thought..
Easy check in, size of room, temperature settings in room. Rooms in need of an update, a little bit out of the way.
Being able to use the swimming pool and gym We have stayed here about five times before and have always had a twin room on the Scottish Parliament side of the hotel but this time we were in a double on the other side which we found darker and a little bit noisier. We are used to a bigger bed at home and because of the size of the duvet we needed to put the bedspread across the other way and tuck it in, otherwise there was a draught on our legs. I think possibly when we booked there was only the option of a double room rather than a twin.
very helpful staff The £3.50 tray charge on room service was a bit much
The location, very central. Staff very helpful no requirment to find a parking space!!
The hotel staff were the most pleasant I have ever encountered, they were all lovely, which makes for a wonderful stay. No
the friendlyness of all staff from reception to cleanres. This made our stay the use of leisure facilities. The pool area could do with a little re furb
the meal was excellent!
The room was very comfortable and quiet, the staff were very pleasant and helpful.
the staff were extremly friendly
Using the Vermillion lounge in the evening for a quiet drink was very pleasant. The Scottish chap with very short hair who attends the door in reception is a great asset to the hotel. We came accross him on several occasions he was always helpful, pleasant, professional and friendly, give him a large pay rise!!!! We had some difficulty getting drinks in the Vermillion lounge. I dialed the number on the card as suggested but no answer. The chap from Chile who is studying for a Master in economic development sorted us out in the end, another significant asset for you hotel I hope you look after him
Everything!!!! The staff were excellent throughout- ur room was very spacious with a brilliant view over Edinburgh. Restaurant and bar were fabulous and enjoyed having the luxury of the spa right on the doorstep. Fabulously central location.
Friendly helpful staff, very comfortable room, excellent service
We were upgraded to the publisher suite which was spacious and atmospheric. This really helped to make toe stay memorable. The staff were friendly and obliging. Overall an excellent service.
So very central. Useful to be able to get to the Waverley Station via the lower back door which was just a case of crossing the road to the station. Would be useful to enable access for booking into the hotel. Staff were helpful and friendly with no exceptions. There was no 'heart' to the hotel. No where to sit peacefully other than the Bistro which was open to other customers and did not have seats to lounge in.
Beautiful, excellent location No coffee or non caloric sweetener in room
All of the staff where extremely helpful.
The helpful staff Could benefit from air conditioning
Staff welcoming and courteous. Good size rooms and facilities excellent
The quality fo the room was excellent and the free upgrade was very much appreciated, as were all the little extra touches. The breakfast.
