Lovely atmosphere, great location
C Beggs, Northern Ireland
Great location for central Edinburgh. Quite a grand hotel and staff lovely. We will return when restaurant and bar renovation completed. I would have liked a fridge in room and a bottle of water.
The best thing about my stay was...Hotel location

Excellent - Highly recommend
A Simpson, Yorkshire, UK
This hotel is perfect for sightseeing/shopping/Waverley station/trams. We had a superb stay 10-12 March, and could not fault the hotel -staff & service were excellent, the room was amazing with a great view of the Firth of fourth (our room was at the back of the hotel). We booked for breakfast and again were not disappointed - the choice and quality of food was excellent
The best thing about my stay was...Central location

A fantastic stay in a beautiful hotel
Mr and Mrs Scott, Scottish Borders
I am just back from a wonderful stay in the George hotel with my husband to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The hotel is ideally located and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome with a glass of prosecco and very helpful and polite staff. The room was clean and comfortable with everything you could need. We paid for breakfast in the morning which was worth the money. A very enjoyable stay that made a wonderful treat for us.
The best thing about my stay was...The welcome drink and staff's hospitality

Central hotel with very friendly staff
Donald Low, Aberdeen
Efficient & very friendly reception staff, we received an upgrade room at no extra charge. Concierge was very attentive to waiting customers. Room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, great choices, something to suit everyone. Tempus bar is a great place to enjoy a drink. Car parking a bit of a problem, use an NCP at a discounted rate from the hotel.

My wife had always wanted a night in the George Hotel so I took her there for our tenth wedding anniversary. The entrance hallway drap, room was average, the bar was sophisticated and the breakfast disappointing (the cheese and ham dried up curled at the edges).
The best thing about my stay was...Got a good deal with Alpha Rooms

The George is in a great location, in the middle of the New Town. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a standard room, which was slightly bigger than an average hotel room. It was nice and clean, with a large, comfortable bed. We'd definitely stay there again.

I got this hotel for my inlaws to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary. They were treated like a king and queen. 7th floor room with views over the firth of forth. Concierge parking their vehicle. Reception staff providing impeccable service. They have raved about it constantly. I cant thank them enough for the standards and service achieved in looking after them during their visit.

weekend stay over
Marie White, East Lothian
very comfortable stay, friendly efficent staff and nice room and bathroom, every thing spotlessly clean, good breakfast. good choice and very central.
10 March 2009
Stayed for a night on business. Good points: Very classy decor and ambience Breakfast, Professional staff Speedy check-in Location Not so good: Room nice but tiny (Room 95)- wardrobe had a mini-bar/safe and ironing board in it meaning there was literally no space to hang any clothes Bar prices - nearly £16 for two double spirits Overall a great hotel if you can get a good deal, alpharooms was £100 including breakfast which is much better than the hotel rack-rate

We stayed 1 night at the George Hotel, as part of my wife's birthday celebrations. What a fab choice!! The staff were fantastic, the room great, Tempus bar excellent and the restaurant foor superb!! There really wasn't anything to complain about, we enjoyed our stay so much. We have stayed in hotels all over Europe, but very few have come close to beating this one. Can't wait to go back to Edinburgh and stay at the George again!!

Excellent stay in a very good City centre location, close to all amenities. Maybe we were lucky but we had a very nice re-furbished room, with a 7 foot wide bed!! The room overlooked the main street. It was well furnished with the usual tea and coffee making facilities. good in house entertainment with a good choice of movies for about £10.00. All new releases. Staff very friendly welcoming and efficient. We had break-fast included but other meals very pricey about £ 17.00 just for main course. There was a great choice for break-fast including about 10 varieities of fruit. they have a buffet hot break-fast. This let them down a bit as on two occasions most of this could only be described as luke warm! however this was brought to there attention so maybe they will improve. We had a late flight home and the hotel kindly allowed us to store our suitcases there after check out. Overall this was an excellent hotel and I would certainly return there and recomend it to others.

Louise McKinstry, Banbridge, Norhtern Ireland
The service was excellent and the concierge service was efficient. The staff were knowledgeable about the area. The rooms were clean and had all the necessary items, eg iron, hairdryer. However, the room was fairly small, with no room to sort out our suitcase except for on the bed! I would use this hotel again.

Review of 'THE GEORGE'
Shona Johnstone, Angus/Scotland
A very enjoyable stay. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Only used the restaurant for breakfast in the morning but would`ve provided a lovely ambience for dinner as well. Excellent central location to shops, theatre and pubs around.
