Reviews - Old Waverley Hotel

3Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
43 Princes Street , Edinburgh, EH2 2BY
The Old Waverley is a landmark building located in the heart of Edinburgh's vibrant city centre. The Hotel is centrally located on the famous Princes Street, overlooking Princes Gardens and the Scott monument and with views across to Edinburgh Castle.

Of all the hotels in Edinburgh, the Old Waverley is one of the best located, with the Waverley train station, Edinburgh bus terminal and the sightseeing tours departure point just 2 minutes walk from the hotel. Some of Edinburgh's finest shops are situated on Princes Street, such as Jenners. All the major attractions - Theatres, Museums, Art Galleries and Edinburgh Castle - are within easy distance

The hotel offers excellent value for money and the highest standards of customer service. Many of the en-suite bedrooms offer spectacular views of Edinburgh Castle. Both Cranstons Restaurant and the Abbotsford Lounge Bar are light and airy with superb views over Princes Street Gardens and of Edinburgh Castle. Both offer excellent cuisine and service.

The hotel reserves the right to pre authorise (or charge if using maestro card) the credit card used to guarantee the reservation 24 hours prior to arrival.

THE OLD WAVERLEY HOTEL IS COMPLETELY NON SMOKING.

Stopped at this hotel three times now - lovely atmosphere and central location. Paid extra for a superior room was a great room for view however was very cold and the bed was two twins pushed together

Staff always pleasant & helpful - Breakfast fine
Room just a bit noisy with traffic - overlooking Princess St - but the view made up for this

Helpful and friendly service in a great location
I needed to print flight tickets and this was done for me.
I wanted some ideas of where to go in the evening that would be quiet but entertaining and was given some great independent ideas and good directions.
Being on Princes Street is great for Airport - Tram link and your base for the best Edinburgh has to offer without a car.

Old Waverley experience
I thought the staff were quite abrupt and not very friendly, but the room was magnificent, spotlessly clean and everything thought about. I was quite disappointed in the breakfast though, for an hotel of this calibre. I did expect buttered scrambled eggs and butchers sausages.
