About the hotel

Award-winning luxury hotel and conference venue in the heart of historic Edinburgh When it comes to hotels in Edinburgh, very few can compete with the style and sophistication of The George. None can compete according to the Scottish Hotel Awards 2011, which awarded The George the title of Best Hotel in Edinburgh. The George belongs to the luxurious of Edinburgh’s hotels, from its fabulous 249 rooms and ample facilities to its ideal location in the centre of the city which is designated as a ‘World Heritage site”.

The hotel is within easy reach of rail and air links and it is close to the city’s business district, plus a plethora of local attractions including the famous Castle, Princess Street Gardens and Holyrood Palace. A little further a field is Edinburgh Zoo and Leith Port which is now home to the Royal Yacht Britannia The George is a fantastic place to stay whether you are on a work trip or a fabulous city break. It is regularly sought out for conferences and boasts nine conference and event suites, including the roof top Panorama meeting room with breathtaking views across Edinburgh. The George is also famous for food and drink and are very proud to be associated with the Tempus Bar & Restaurant, an award winner itself. Easily accessible by road, rail and air, the George Hotel is just a few minutes walk from Waverley Station and is just a short journey from Edinburgh International Airport. Car parking is available close to the hotel at the NCP or there is on street metered parking between 08. 30 and 18. 00. We also now have a tram line serving the city and our nearest stop is St. Andrews Square, which is 300 metres from the hotel.

Great hotel in superb location

Lovely hotel, great location.

Room was a little small, but perfectly formed. Restaurant was staffed by friendly people, and food was good too.

Great location, but the hotel is lacking and not well thought-out

Probably perfect as a business hotel, and perhaps that's what they're aiming for, but as a romantic/city break place, it falls awfully flat.

Our room, once we found it down a warren of corridors and concrete steps, was large but lacking in character, which totally let down the expectation from such a classic old building with a beautiful façade. The few extras actually provided in the room (most have to be requested from reception) were disappointing: two tea bags of everyday blah blah, two sachets of instant coffee and two decafs... is that it. Surely, at these prices, a choice of teas and more than 2 biscuits is a reasonable expectation. These are minor niggles so far; now we come to the main problems. Our 'superior double' bed was two mattresses jammed together, which really does NOT work for a couple who actually want to sleep together (hence asking for a 'superior double'). There was no mini bar or fridge (just a hole in the cupboard where it once was), meaning we couldn't buy foodstuffs and keep them cool. And there is no air conditioning, which was really needed given the design of this room: the central heating was on and blasting out ridiculous heat when we arrived, making the room incredibly uncomfortable and airless, so we turned off the radiator and opened the window... or tried to. It opened a few inches but was restricted "for your safety", which is fair enough, but it means there is no way of ventilating the room. We left that window open for the entire time, but it was too small to make a difference. All in all, we slept badly and were glad to leave. What a shame, when we were so looking forward to this special treat.
