    The hotel was close to the station and the airport bus which was great. We had a lovely room with plenty of space and comfortable furniture. The staff were all very helpful.

    It would have been great to have a small refridgerator in our room.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    great location, easy access to airport(near busstop of Airlink), convinient room with Edinburgh castle view, nice staffs

  • Couple
    8.8

    Really liked the bathrooms! Nice to deviate from the usual spartan white often found in hotels. The staff were lovely. All in all a great time there.

    We had a double room but the double bed was actually two singles pushed together - that was the only thing I have to say that's not glowingly positive.

  • Single
    8.8

    Extremely convenient to Waverly station and the old town.

    It was awkward getting through the narrow and unsprung front doors with my baggage. And while I'm able-bodied myself, it was quite conspicuously not accessible for people with disabilities.

  • Couple
    10.0

    I liked the old rustic atmosphere of the rooms even though they are well modernised. Modernised is good but is till had a good feeling of grandeur during my stay because even though I stayed image room overlooking south Saint David street we could still see the castle from the window and here the bustle outside.

    Breakfast a little over priced

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    It was central to all transport links, shopping, restaurants and tourist attractions. The breakfast at the Old Waverley is fantastic, a good variety of food was available whether you preferred yoghurt and croissant or a huge hearty scottish breakfast, including haggis - delicious!!!

    No complaints, the hotel served its purpose with what we required to do during our stay.

  • Single
    6.6

    The proximity of the hotel to all of the sites could not have been any better.

    The mattress was worn (could feel the springs) and sunkin in. It made for a difficult nites sleep. Internet service was not very reliable. No conectivity in the room at all.

  • Older travelers

    It was in a perfect location for a short sight-seeing visit.

    The hotel Location and beautiful room overlooking Princes Street.

  • Couple
    8.8

    The staff members were all fantastic! As we were taking the train to and from Edinburgh, the location was also very convenient.

    The doors are very thin so you can hear everything in the hall way.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Location excellent. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast very tasty.

    Booked standard double room. Was given one at front overlooking princes street. Was initially pleased with this. But bed very small. Plastic sheet under sheet very uncomfortable. Pillows not the full size - very small and uncomfortable. Two very bad nights of sleep. Room dusty in places. Windows and cill dirty. Could do with paint over.

  • Single
    9.2

    The Old Waverley is right next to the Waverley Tain Station. Takes about 3 minutes to drag the luggage from the train to the hotel.

    The room was very hot, no amount of fiddling with the thermostat changed anything, had to have the window open all the time.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Location - and the view from our room

    No lift to Reception from Hotel entrance Breakfast was mediocre - they had managed to discover the tasteless sausage - insufficient stock of glassware and crockery which meant guests had to serve cold drinks and food into hot glasses and plates straight from dishwashers Decor - particularly window frames in our room - was badly in need of attention

  • Single
    9.0

    Old Waverly is situated on Princes Street, near the center of Edinburgh. It's location is excellent for visiting all parts of the city.

    My only suggestion would be to add one or two computers that visitors can use if they aren't carrying their own lap tops or other devices.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    The interior decor (especially the lovely old ceiling designs) and views of the city were really excellent. Close to shopping. Very friendly service staff open 24/7, room service availability. And breakfast was the best we had on our 3 week trip.
