Reviews - The George Hotel

4Visit Scotland Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
19-21 George Street , Edinburgh, EH2 2PB
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.

Bit disappointed with dinner
Booked the hotel for my 5th Anniversay and booked the Tempus Restuarant through 5pm.com for evening meal at 7pm. My meal was fine however my husbands fish was translucent in parts. We did say this to the waitress and the Manager did come across and apologise. He did explain that this was how it should be cooked, and offered us a desert at no extra cost. We felt that we had had ample to eat and declined the offer. Bill came and it did not have the 5pm discount and we should also have had a free dram with this, again missing. Based on the caliber of the hotel feel that this was under par. Breakfast on both mornings was good so feel 5 is a true reflection. Would not let this put me off staying at the hotel again.

Bathroom was on the small side however other than that the hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was really good and again the restaurant staff were friendly. We were there for the Ryder Cup and breakfast was laid on early for those going to Gleneagles. Thank you for an overall pleasant stay.

Stylist Hotel with great rooms.
Every thing is perfect about this hotel. Location, rooms, bar, lobby. The one thing that let it down was the breakfast, every thing that was meant to be hot was cold. I would go back to this hotel only I'd eat out for breakfast. Oh and if you do stay for breakfast make sure you pre book it, it's a lot cheap.

Good food except for coffee and croissants
All round excellent except quality of coffee at breakfast is poor and croissants spongy rather than flakey which they should be. Otherwise breakfast buffet is good..

Not good enough
Kingsize bed was twin singles pushed together, however the levels of bed were mismatched.
The food for breakfast had every angle covered but the standard was poor.

Superior room? Absolutely!!
We booked a superior double room at The George. Our room did not disappoint! Would definitely visit again and would highly recommend a stay at this hotel.
