    Was given a first floor room with view of the Castle. Service and check in was brilliant as they were willing to take in our bags for check in and allowed us to leave our bags in the hotel until we got our train Staff were superb and friendly It's a bit dated but overall very happy with my stay

    Disappointed

    A very tired hotel, no restaurant, no draught beer air conditioning not up to the job. Best thing was the showers.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Great location and a good size room for 2 people. Our room on the 5th floor was very warm so a fan or air conditioning would have been nice. Due to the location it was a bit noisy at night time but that’s hard to avoid in the city centre especially in the summer. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

    We had a really excellent one night stay at the Old Waverley. Our room had a beautiful view, comfortable bed and plenty of space! Will definitely be back again.

    We were disappointed that there was no food to be got at hotel, some of the decor needed revamping , there was a hole in one of our handtowels where it was threadbare, On the plus side the staff were friendly

    Good stay, pity about early morning window washers

    Great stay at this very convenient hotel and was ready to give excellent feedback however my wife and I were unexpectedly woken up by window washers at 6:00am in the morning. I understand windows need to be washed but the thumping of cleaning my room's window and others was not welcome.

    Great hotel

    The room was lovely and as it was a warm few days in Edinburgh the air conditioning was a welcome relief. The bed was so comfy we didn't want to get up
