Concierge was not good. Requested reservations for tea. Received notification that it was complete. When I showed up, there was no reservation. Requested assistance for your information and never received a response. Service was just not what you would expect.

I liked the history and look of the property. I enjoyed the coffee and shortbread cookies as well as the turn down service with the chocolates. I disliked that as a long time Hilton Honors members that we did not receive complimentary breakfast. I also thought the carriage room bathroom was too dark. Even with the window, there is not enough light to adequately see when putting on makeup, etc.

Great hotel with great staff. Loved the proximity to major attractions. Despite being on a busy street, you could never hear the noise outside. Will definitely stay there again if ever back in Edinburgh.

Staff was great—room was not (heater was roaring all night but they moved us to another room the next night—it was better). The really ridiculous thing that we could not wrap our heads around was how bad room service was—the Waldorf salad at the Waldorf is a disgrace! The chicken sandwich had almost no chicken in it , the breakfast was a joke—we ate two meals with them and it was laughable. We thought people should know—there’s no excuse for it!

The hotel is very well located, comfortable, and the staff is ready for all of your needs. The concierge recommended a variety very good restaurants from a delicious and chip chinese for lunch, to a great and expensive one michelin star for dinner all of them walking distance. The rooms are very clean and comfortable in a vintage atmosphere which is what you can expect for that kind of city. The views from my room was not bad but not great, anyways I’d come back and absolutely recommend it.

This hotel was terrific. Great service and we loved the location to everything. Wish the rooms were a little bigger but otherwise would not change a thing. The breakfast at the hotel daily was amazing. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and pleasant. Anything you asked for they would get it to you almost immediately. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
