Exceptional 10.0
Edinburgh with my best friends
I stayed here for one night with my best friends. We had a triple room which had plenty of room. The only downside was the bathroom sink was very high and I am quite short. We had bed and breakfast. The breakfast was very good. Would definitely stay here again. Ideal for the shops on princes street and the Waverley station.

Fine overnighter
I mainly wanted an overnight stay prior to an early train trip and Waverley Hotel was perfect for that, if a little too central and difficult to drive to in your car.

Poor 2.0
Only consider if everywhere else in Edinburgh is f
This is a shabby hotel in very poor condition. It has more the class of a low class B&B than a hotel charging a premium price. The public areas are disappointing and the bedrooms are worse. They are small, badly arranged and come with cheap and nasty furniture in a worn condition. The breakfast is miserable.

Lovely old hotel.
Lovely old hotel with public parking about 10 minutes walk away. Good access for Castle where we had tickets for a Kylie concert. Friendly and helpful staff. Great view from the bedroom window. Would stay here again.
